What a Friday group tasting put on by Dan! Killer wines. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert. All blind.

Back of my mind wanted to say Rochioli but I just couldn’t do it. Should have! Similar muddled raspberry profile, little bit more spice to it. More dark fruit too. Someone called it zin due to the fruit. Again, I called this a mid-2000s WS. Was on fire with my guesses today evidently.

Pleasant but fruit is fading. Would have been better a couple of years ago.

Selyem "Rochioli" vineyard 2006. Closed at first (expected), cherry, earth, black tea leaf, mild tannins once it showed itself. Very pleasing & noticeable acidity.

Still young vibrant pinot with Burgundian structure and North coast fruit. Delicious juice.
