Charlie's Weekly Wine-ing
The wines we are serving this week are a repeat of last weeks. The same international flavor with the Australian 2005 Formula Robert’s Shiraz by Small Gully Wines and the Italian 2008 Mascialrelli Rose d’Abruzzo. See last week’s blog for my comments about why I select these two wines.
Cellar 55 joined us to add their ‘professional’ opinions to this special tasting. The consensus was that Kevin’s 2004 Shiraz from my cellar was at it peak and was enjoyed by all. Do all wine’s taste better when shared with the proud creator of that wine? I look forward to Lynne and Kevin’s next visit, which will be the right occasion to open Kevin’s 2010 Pinot Noirs that are now maturing in my cellar.
So, last week we made a little detour from my planned wine tasting, but a lot of other great wine was still enjoyed. We now have last weeks’ selections to look forward to this week. Another win-win on the Wine Patio.
