2009 Domaine Les Escondudes Chateauneuf-du-Pape


This full bodied Southern Rhone blend offers an elegant, refined nose of damp earth, clay, herbaceousness and a subliminal hint of toasted vanilla oak.  With a compact offering of tobacco, white pepper, unsweetened black licorice and vanilla extract on the palate; this wine is not a sipping wine and finishes with a semi course, lingering tannin.  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

Trio Vintners 2008 Sangiovese


It has been quite the ride in a positive way tasting these series of wines by Trio Vintners and i was  curious to experience their take on the Tuscan trademarked treasure, Sangiovese.  Sourced exclusively from Walla Walla Valley, this mild, polished wine offers graceful layers of clove, musk, chocolate, red cherry and dried cranberries while lending a subtle, lengthy finish of vanilla laced perfume. Truly hit the spot with my boneless, lightly seasoned, pork sirloin chops and pasta dinner.  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
