MOST RECENT

The third installment of the Old vs. New world wine tasting. This time we have a Lucien et Andre Brunel Les Cailloux Chateauneuf de Pape 2011 against the much easier to prounounce Tenet GSM 2013. The new world finally gets a win. 🍷
.
The Tenet is a deep, inky ruby color with a pale pink rim. Nose was mostly of overripe blackberries. Flavors are fruit forward leaning toward fruit heavy; blackberry, dark cherry, followed by some licorice notes and a hint of cherry cola. Grippy tannins. Long, warming, persistent finish.🍇
.
If you're a fan of big fruity GSM's, this wine is for you. Even though it's big on the fruit, there is enough of a tannin bite to help balance things out. I give it 89 points IMHO.👍

One of my favourites - this Sancerre is bright, citrusy, with a minerality that gives it that classic French character.
🍷
Even though I sample a lot of wines, I always come back to some of my old standbys. It just seems rude not to give them some of the picture love!
🍷
What’s one wine you could drink forever?

The second of our Old vs. New world tastings pitted Gerard Raphet Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2012 against a Shea Wine Cellars Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard Block 23 2014.🍇
.
The clear winner for me was the Old World Burgundy. Lovely transclucent plum color with a pale plum rim. Nose of baking spices, anise and cedar shavings. Flavors of blackberry, cedar, tart cherry were most evident. Well integrated tannins. Long warming finish.🍷
.
This is a classic, elegant Pinot Noir. I give it 93 points IMHO. I continued sipping on it througout the evening long after our official tasting was over. .
Although this was my favorite of the pairing, our group was pretty evenly divided between the Raphet and the Shea. It just proves that taste is subjective and you shouldn't always base your wine purchases on what other people think. I tend to rely on a handful of people I know whose tastes are similar to mine. 😋

De San Patricio del Chañar; @bodegapatritti nos acompaña con su Pinot Noir Primogénito 2014.
Destaca su color rubí atractivo y traslúcido.
Se perciben en nariz aromas a guindas, violetas y a vainilla por su paso en roble.
Balanceado y armónico en boca; de acidéz equilibrada y persistente.
Super recomendable.

I got invited to a fun, low-key wine tasting this weekend hosted by long time friends in our neighborhood. The format was Old World vs. New World. The wines were fabulous, but enjoying the company of friends, old and new, was even better.🍷
.
It was an enlightening evening for me. I've always considered myself more of a New World wine guy with a California leaning. But my favorite wines of the night were evenly split between New and Old. Tasting notes forthcoming. 🍇
.
Thanks to our hosts Danny and Cinda for putting this together and opening their home to us. 🍷

Querceto Chianti Classico Reserva 2009. It's funny how your tastes change over time. I was quite entharalled with this wine a few years ago. Enough so that I bought several bottles. 🍷
.
While it is still quite good, my tastes are moving more towards Syrahs and Zinfandels these days. I guess I'll just wait until I circle back through a Chianti phase before I open another one. Do you notice your tastes changing over time?🍇
.
The wine is a beautiful, deep plum color with a pale plum rim. The nose is faint blackberry, cedar and menthol. The flavors are rich blackberry, sweetened cranberry, faint strawberrry and cocoa. The tannins are still quite racy for a 2009 vintage. Long, warm finish with notes of black pepper. I give it 88 point IMHO.👍

What do you order when you take a group of kiddos to Medieval Times for a birthday? #trickquestion Nothing! I’m not drinking #schwag so I suggest you do like me and pour your favorite wine in your #thermoflask and bring it along. I mean, it holds an entire bottle! Perfect for sharing.🍷 Cheers to #friyay and our green knight!
