Feb 20 Great American Friday Taste
Joe's designated night tonight. We started off with a 2005 Rabid Red California red wine. Defininate full bodied full flavored wine with a bold spice taste followed by oak. Uses the Cabernet and Petit Sirah grapes to make this wine. The second wine was the always smooth 2007 Castle Rock California Cuvee Pinot Noir. Cherry, blackberry and plum combine to make this a very good Pinot. Once again the wine ghost somehow slipped a white in the tasting tonight which was a 2006 Schug Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp with a bold grapefruit/citris flavor. A good summer time wine.
