April 23, 2009 GreatAmerica Tasting
Pat was the person on the spot this evening. We started with a 2006 Las Rocas Grenache from Spain. Flavors of black cherry, raspberry and a spicy pepper finish. For the majority of the group this was their first grenache. Wine 2 was a Casillero Del Diablo 2005 Merlot from Chile. Blackberry, chocolate and an earthy finish for this wine. Out of the blue a 2004 Duck Pond Pinot Noir showed up. Raspberry and strawberry at the start with a spicy dry finish.
