We found a good one in the cellar this week. A Norman Vineyards 2002 Paso Robles Merlot. We purchased this wine when we were in Paso a few years back. This Merlot was so good, I savored each sip. The nose was bursting with dark berry fruit, blackberry, vanilla and cocoa. The palate was filled with blackberry, black raspberry and a hint of liqorice. Excellent structure.
Beringer 2008 Napa Valley Chardonnay – Nose of lime and coconut makes you want to sing the song “Put the lime in the coconut.” A nice taste of honeydew melon with a long butterscotch finish.
