Part 2 of Thursday’s tasting @vintryfinewines sponsored by @polanerselections. 2017 Arnot-Roberts Touriga Nacional Rosé Luchsinger Vineyard, notes of peaches, spice, & lemon - perfect Rosé for a hot, summer evening. Elegant, balanced single vineyard wine from one of California's most exciting small wineries. We had the opportunity to visit them last year in Healdsburg & it was a wonderful, informal tasting experience. They purchase grapes from a network of growers since they do not own any land & have a keen eye for ideal vineyard sources for the styles of wines they make.

2015 Alvaro Palacios Priorat Les Terrasses, notes of red fruit & cinnamon, food pairing is critical for this wine. Priorat is a small, dynamic wine region in Catalonia, north-eastern Spain, whose intense, full-bodied red wines have shot to fame in the past few decades. The classic Priorat wine is made from old-vine Garnacha and Cariñena, and has concentrated aromas of licorice, tar and brandied cherries. While originally conceived of as a value wine, Les Terrasses "Velles Vignes" has slowly evolved into the essence of what makes Priorat special. Drawing on 15+ years of study, Terrasses is sourced from many of the region's steepest and oldest vineyards-many of them north-facing to avoid the intense afternoon sun.

A dog named Mack led me down a vineyard trail to a field of lavender and showed me some really great Zinfandel. 🍷

Name: 2009 Deering Ideal and 2012 Clos du Val Stags Leap Estate
_________________
My Rating: 91 (Deering) and 89 (CDV)
_________________
Price: $25 for the Deering from @undergroundcellar and unknown on the CDV
_________________
Not the best photos from yesterday but good wines for a belated Father’s Day tasting with my buddy Gabe and my dad.
_________________
The Deering was definitely the better wine on this day. PnP with a sweet nose of candied fruit and dusty leather. On the palate, layers of fruit, earth and tobacco seamlessly work together for a smooth, but long finish. Juicy and fruit forward, but not over the top, with the combination of age, remaining tannins and acidity making this great on its own or with food.
The Clos du Val was decanted for three hours prior to consumption. While the nose exhibited dark fruit and peaty funk, the palate remained somewhat restrained and tight with quality fruit and a bit of funk. However, not much complexity and surprisingly short finish and resolved tannins. ————————
