May 15 Wine Taste
After a 2 week absence I am back. My turn this evening and we started with a Conquista 2008 Malbec from Argentina. Soft plum and spice were the main flavors with a slight vanilla accent at the end. After research I found their 2005 was award winning. The second wine was a 2006 Red Truck Pinot Noir from California. Cherry and spice make up this smooth wine which is medium bodied. One of my standbys used to entertain, the group favored this wine. A 3rd wine showed up unexpectedly which was a 2003 Argyle Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Cherry, spice, raspberry and a hint of chocolate were the key characters in this wine.
