TASTING :: NOVEMBER 18, 2018
Dopff & Irion Pinot Gris, Alsace France
Pear fruit on the nose is ripe, juicy and aromatic. On the palate zesty freshness gives those pear notes precision while a touch of residual sweetness makes them even more expressive. The body is light and utterly refreshing, finishing dry.
Treveri Syrah Brut Sparkling, Yakima, WA
Red effervescence cascades through this sparkling, matched equally by dark fruit and complex yeast tones.
Dom Solitude Cote du Rhone Rouge, France
Good weight of plummy fruit, well structured with firm tannins and some complexity.
Morgan Cotes du Crow Red, Monterey, CA
Savory aromas of pomegranate, boysenberry, tar, charred meat and dried thyme lead into a palate layered in purple flowers, marjoram and dark-berry fruit.
Ancient Peak Renegade Red, Paso Robles, CA
Aromas of plum, cherry, violets, vanilla bean and savory leather with a suggestion of baking spice. Juicy flavors of red and black fruits co-mingle seamlessly across a rich, expansive palate, revealing hints of wildberry jam, sage and cedar.
Ironstone Reserve Zinfandel Lodi
Aromas and flavors of ripe blackberries, pepper and chocolate, finishing with well-rounded tannins and a lingering dark, fruit finish.
