Saturday Tasting Archive: July 7,2012 The Star Spangled All-American TastingWhat's New?, Wine & Spirit Events & News
Here’s Saturday’s line up from our tasting with Tim Dillon with my humble opinions added
“Right on the borderline between dry and sweet, this richly fruity Riesling is packed with flavors of peach, apricot, pear, a hint of mint, and a streak of wet stone. There is a lot going on for such an inexpensive wine.” -Paul Gregutt Rich says “I agree”
Rich says: The most Bordeaux styled wine of the day with crisp, herbaceous notes wrapped around a core of berries, very well balanced and a pleasure to drink, good for lamb
Rich says: A great deal on an underrated Napa producer. A beautiful core of black cherry and cassis layerd with fine tannins and a slight pleasant dustiness. Really classic cab at a good price
Rich says” The is Duckhorn’s straight zin, a veritable fruit bomb that feels like biting into a blackberry pie with brushy briary overtones, gives a very ripe sweet impression that would stand up to Teriyaki beef or salmon, spicy barbecued pork or red sauces.
