First taste of the RJS EP Australian Pinot Noir. It's 9 months old. Fruity, medium body with deep color. Very young, but not kit-ish tasting. I have another 5 tasters, enough to get me to 2 years old, I think.

Picked it up tonight at the local grocery store. I've had it before and liked it.

I will have to see if I can snag a bottle of the 2016 Tamaya Rose' of Pinot Noir next time I am in ABQ. Have seen the vineyard planted and growing well for the last 3 years now. The vineyard is visible from I25 and on Pueblo land. Nice to see them expand into something besides another casino. Gruet knows how to make a good wine somehow from vines planted in (basically) sand..... Grapes look nice tho!

Sangiovese and Tempranillo blend. Little sweet for my taste but the SO enjoys it

We got a huge flow of moisture today and it started raining after lunch and continues to look like rain all through the night. With the cooler temps finally (60 degrees outside) I thought I would seize the opportunity to break away from Rose' after Rose' and pull a bottle of my 2013 San Acacia Tres Rojo's blend from the cellar. 50% Zinfandel, 25% Cab Sauv, 25% Merlot all from the Lodi, CA AVA. This continues to get better and better. Still seems like it could go for another 5 years or more. Tannins have softened and come together nicely. Oak is perfect. I wanted a wine to go with grilled fare including BBQ and I got a wine that over delivered in every way. Needless to say I paired this with leftover Baby Backs from my Sunday smoke day. I forgot what a 14.5% ABV wine will do to you after a couple of glasses. Powerful stuff!
