Feb 5 2009 GreatAmerican Thursday Wine Taste

Brett was the designated buyer this evening and treated us first with Penfords Koonunga Hill 2005 Merlot from South Australia. The description claims to be medium bodied with plum and berry fruit flavors. This was very smooth for "medium bodied" especially an Australian Merlot and a definate fruit flavor. Excellent choice. The 2nd wine was a Pinossimo 2005 Pinot Noir from France. A typical Pinot taste of cherry and raspberry, light bodied and smooth as silk. The group recommended both wines this evening purchased at Benz Beverage Depot Cedar Rapids Iowa. Visit them at
