2/8/13. Today I tried the Natura Carmenere, from Chile.
Deep ruby-red in color with light notes of cherries, with a spicy touch of black pepper, which adds pleasing aromatic complexity. On the palate, it presents sweet and round tannins, well balanced acidity and soft texture. It is an easy-drinking and juicy wine with a very good finish.
12/13/09, So this week-end I started small wine tasting in the shop. We are very small, so I just opened a white and a red gave them out free. I have been meaning to do this for a couple of years now, a recent remodel gave us a few more square feet so we tried it. It was quite a hit, and fun too. I will do tasting every week end and tell you about them here!
Summer is very gone! My locals want good, cheap wine! Chilean 35° South Cabernet Sauvignon/ Merlot, organic, nice ripe fruit, mellow finish. The best part......, It's on sale now under $10.00! It says $13.95 but if you click through the sale price is $9.98! I need to get better friends!
O.K. We tasted the 1999 Chateau Pech- Latt Corbieres this past week-end and a repeat of the Cameo Vineyards Whiite Zinfandel (I had a lot of it). The Chateau Pech- Latt tasted well, about 50% of the patrons bought at least one bottle. It is a blend of 40% Carignan, 30% Grenanache Noir, 10% Cinsault, and 10% Syrah. Now I will tell you up front I am not a fair judge as I love this wine for all the wrong reasons! Saying that, I think it is well discribed as spice first, fruit second, and a slow lingering finish. Some of the stranger comments were "Merlotish", "good at first, fine at last". Now I did have one lady who was with others who loved it say "I don't see what the big deal is, it tastes like wine". So I was happy that most other people also liked this wine!
Now, the Cameo Vineyards White Zinfandel. again, it just flat SELLS! I sold out Saturday. Will have more in two days three on the outside.
I need to have a wine that does not taste as well soon, or you will not believe me!
Rember I only drink what is put before me.
So summer is really busy in the shop, it takes me a while to get here! This wine tasting idea REALLY is taking off. I feel like a waiter most days, "I got misery in the back ache and my feet hurt when I walk". It is fun though, I have five people lined up all tasting the same wine, and it tastes different to each one. Cantina Pizzolato's Pinot Grigio was this week-ends white wine. It sold out by the end of the first day, as it was warm and it is an easy to drink simple wine. Sit on the patio, no shoes, sip slowly until sundown, then switch to a red!
Well, it has been a long time since I have had a chance to give my twisted tales of wines I have known. This is a small operation, (mainly me) and this internet thing works! I think one of the best organic wines made in this country is Bonterra Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon. Barrel aged in oak, really tastes like "distinctive berry-plum flavors in this elegant, well-balanced Cabernet". A lot of wine labels are using the power of suggestion, this one is descriptive. I have done many tastings with this staple of California organics, it never fails to sell well. So, all you need to do is buy some! Jason Tree
Well, The tourist season is over for the year. Maybe I can get back to writing a bit about the wine. Even limited sucsess has it's costs! I am not a loser, I try. I am a failure. The Badger Mountain NSA 2000 Merlot has caught my attention for the last two weeks. It is from Washington and is a nice smooth, pure NSA wine. REAL esay to drink. "The next thing I knew it was Wednesday!"
Have A good Day! A better night. Drink your favorite wine with your favorite person. I am working to expand our selection in the next few weeks! I will write the reaction to the new wines as they are sampled. I might even let the customers try a little.
Well, finally the time to report on a wine I really liked. Noemus Rioja from Spain is a fine example of the organic wine to be had around the globe at this point. I shared it with my friend, and wine guy Mark Sturges, who is also the "fertilizer king". We think it is a winner!
If you have a wine you are wondering about, feel free to e-mail me and I will do a tasting on it as soon as possible.
