June 5 Wine Taste
Brett dipped into his wine club stash for this weeks selections. We started with a 2005 Slide Mountain Cabernet. Nice easy drinking wine with a gentle fruit flavor at the start and a slight pepper finish. Smooth cabernet. Wine 2 was a Sierra Almiron 2008 which was a blend of 90% Malbec and 10% Syrah. At the start of the wine you get the plum and cherry of the malbec and a spicy/pepper flavor of the syrah at the finish. Malbecs and Syrahs are becoming very popular.
