March 27 GreatAmerican Wine Taste
Brett brought 2 very good selections this evening. The first a 2006 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Merlot. Plum, strawberry, spice and oak. Deep purple in color full flavor. The second wine was definate full bodied a 2005 Grand Vin De Bordeux Chateau-St Bernard. Black fruit theme (black cherry, blackraspberry) and a slight strawberry finish with a heavy oak accent. The longer in the glass the milder this wine got. I think we should have allowed the wine to breath longer. Both very good selections purchased at Benz Beverage Depot Cedar Rapids Iowa.
