Last night we had our monthly “Wine Night.” The ladies in my neighborhood, there are 8 of us, we get together montly and bring a bottle of wine. It’s a great way to taste all different types of wine in one evening. Everybody has their own tastes. One likes Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, one only drinks White and one likes her wine on the sweet side. The other 5 drink both red and white.

I brought over a 2002 Goosecross Syrah. I’ve had this wine before and it was very good. However, while wine sits in a bottle, it goes through various stages. This wine was at it’s alcohol stage. You really couldn’t taste any of the fruit, but it did have a hint of pepper on the end. You did taste the alcohol. It wasn’t my favorite for the evening.

The Sauvignon Blanc from Babich was wonderfu! You can pick that up at Arlington Liquor. Another Sauvignon Blanc we had was Fauna. On the sweet side we had a Black Swan Riesling from Australia.

On the reds, besides the Goosecross, we had the Greg Normann Shiraz from Australia. That was very good as was the Bogle Merlot from California.

Next time you have some people over, ask them to bring a bottle. Have a wine tasting. Let me know how it taste!
