We Can Haz Babays!


Forgive me, dear reader, if I do not post for a while.  Apparently, my life has changed a bit.  Hopefully, in the not-too-distant future, I will return with a relaunch!

Recent Tastings

Mirassou 2005 Riesling, California, Apple and citrus qualities with light floral notes.  I do get just a hint of an aroma I could do without — a balloon rubber smell, 3 Stars, $8.00 per bottle.

Mirassou 2005 Pinot Noir, California, This is not a bad wine, but I would select a different choice if you have options, 2 Stars, $8.99 per bottle.

Dr. Konstantin Frank 2005 Dry Riesling, Citrus, apple, and floral notes in the nose precede a wonderfully delicate palate of citrus and apple with a nice, dry, clean finish. Another example of outstanding Finger Lakes riesling from Dr. Frank, 5 Stars, $17.99 per bottle.

Barefoot 2003 Sauvignon Blanc, More like a 2.5. This is a good sipping wine and good for parties, but no really remarkable features, 3 Stars, $6.00 per bottle.
