with friends for meatless monday- spaghetti with a tomato basil sauce,
broccoli, salad with pear/avocado/blue cheese.
2008 pieropan soave
fairly big, apple and citrus fruit, flowery, a little edge of almond.
Good acidity, happy to have this at $10ish b
2005 lunadoro (la bandita) vino nobile di Montepulciano
big, extracted, a touch of oak, would have been better with meat, but
there is a nice touch of spice and good length. dialed down a notch i
would have liked better, but a nice gift from someone who just got
back from area. b-
2009 ch guiot (costieres de nimes) rose
cheap closeout, doesn't seem tired, but it's a fleshy sweet style
that's not my fave. c+
betsy back, she made salmon with tomatoes and tarragon, and a quinoa
salad with zucchini and mushrooms. warm enough to eat outdoors, with
2007 camus-bruchon savigny les beaune. tight at first, then fairly
quickly opens up, solid black cherry fruit, with a bit of citrus zest
and soil tones. medium bodied, solid savigny. b
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
