Recuerdo - Gran Corte
Arrived today with my quarterly shipment of goodies form Maisonry, Napa Valley and just in time for an end of summer BBQ. Seemed like the perfect complement to the the skirt steak tacos w/grilled corn salsa we had planned and it did not disappoint. Bold, intense dark fruit with a spicy/oaky/smoky backbone and a hint of mocha. Probably should have decanted but we couldn't wait. This should age beautifully.
Hirsch - Pinot Noir San Andreas
Arrived today with my quarterly shipment of goodies form Maisonry, Napa Valley and just in time for an end of summer BBQ. Wine was light bodied and well perfumed but tasted much richer, excellent fruit and a real sense of place in the graphite and minerality. I little young now, so I'll need to buy more to see how it ages. I imagine it will be awesome.
