Gardies - Cotes du Roussillon Villages Les Milleres
Consistent with previous bottles, this showed dark, spicy raspberries, minerals and a bit of brett, but was slightly heavier on the palate and less acidic. Beginning to get tired, perhaps?
Mourgues du Gres - Costieres de Nimes Les Galets Roses
Full, fruity and well-balanced but with a characteristically dry finish. Fuller than most Rose's from this part of France. Would probably work well with salmon.
Chateau Ste Michelle - Sauvignon Blanc Horse Heaven Vineyard
Consistent with prior bottles, this was floral, juicy, ripe and balanced. Will attempt to obtain two more bottles.
Arnaldo Caprai - Rosso di Montefalco
Consistent with previous bottles, this showed plenty of Cabernet fruit balanced by ample tannins and acidity courtesy of the Sangiovese. A great pairing with any tomato sauce-based dishes. Good QPR. Will continue to buy.
Gour de Chaule - Gigondas
This is rich, full and complete - a wine of stature and substance. Not at all "New World" or flashy, just well structured and deep. Should have a great, long future ahead of it. Will buy more.
