Scherrer - Zinfandel Old and Mature Vines
I usually son't touch these until age 4-5 but had a case so what the hell. This was very nice. Still has that young bite to it but the perfect balance that I expect from Fred Scherrer's zins. Polar opposite from my other favorite zin producer (Carlise). Scherrer's zins seem to have a lightness/elegance about them that broadens the food parings. Carlisle's are just flat out fun to drink alone.
Pesquie - Les Terrasses
Ahh, back to normal after a probable corked bottle last time. Perfect rhone typicity. Balance is outstanding-this was great with grilled beef filet and roasted veggies.
Cave de Saumur - Saumur Reserve des Vignerons
Love this simple wine. Still better 1-2 days after opening.
Clos Naudin - Vouvray Demi-Sec
Nice acidity to frame the sweetness. Holds forever.
Mitolo - Shiraz GAM
very rich and quite unevolved.
