April 10 Great American Wine taste
Brooke was the lucky contributor this week as we had a limited crowd as the holiday loomed (just more for us darn the luck). The first wine was a Redcliffe 2006 Pinot Noir. Dark cherry/berry aroma with a red berry/cherry flavor. Medium bodied wine excellent choice. The second wine was a selection from Francis Ford Coppola 2006 Rosso. The wine is a blend of 48% Zin, 27% Syrah and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep purple in color again medium bodied. The wine is an excellent balance of spice from the zin, black berry flavor from the syrah and red berry from the cabernet. Both excellent choices again this week. We have yet to duplicate selections.
