Taste it Again / Lost & Found

On occasion, I’ll take a wine I like and put it away in a “special box” for a few years to see how it will age … below you will read happened to those wines. On the other hand, there are wines that get “lost” in my wine cellar with nary a review ever written - some have turned into golden Treasures, others supreme Trash and then there are those that fall somewhere in-between (Tolerable). We’ll look at those here too. (New wines are being added all the time so keep coming back):

February 1, 2009 - Carmela 2004 Pinot and Creekside 2005 Riesling

01 Feb 2009


Two wines this time out, one for the Lost & Found and one for the Taste it Again.  Feast your eyes on the te-taste, or better yet, feast your palate on it, the Carmela Estates 2004 Pinot Noir was made by Norman Hardie - and he was making great wine even then ... The Lost & Found features a wine I was sure I reviewed years ago, but records show I reviewed it only in my head:  Creekside's Butler's Grant Vineyard 2005 Riesling



January 19, 2009 - 3 Taste it Agains with mixed results

19 Jan 2009


There are three new wines that were added to the Taste it Again Grape Guy Blog in the last week, and we have mixed results on these wines.  Something extremely positive came from the bottle of 13th Street 2004 Cabernet Franc ... a fair to middling report when I opened another 13th Street 2004, the Cabernet-Merlot ... and I had nothing nice to say about a Stonechurch 2004 Pinot Noir Reserve - I don't think my tongue will ever forgive me for it.
