June 12th Wine Taste
Old Pat's turn this evening and 2 full bodied wines were offered. We started with the 2005 Castle Rock Petite Syrah from the Russian River Valley. Spicy, cherry plum and blackberry would be how I describe this wine. Seems this would be good with a rack of bbq ribs. The second wine was a Yellow Tail 2008 Shiraz. Hints of cherry and strawberry and that familiar spicy finish of a shiraz. Very good choices this evening.
