    Last night at Cooper's Hawk we did a tasting before dinner, one of which was a GSM Rose which I never seen before. Everyone's dinner was excellent but I didn't care for their wines. They don't share their vintage and to me they were all very young.

    Were you having that with fried plantain? I'll bet they went well together.

    Went to a Cabernet blind-tasting not too long ago - Six wines priced from $16 - $60. The winner was the cheapest of the bunch, produced by the students at College Cellars. This is a two-year teaching winery for Enology and Viticulture. Good stuff and paired nicely with last night's steak!

    Found some WE Vermentino stashed away last week (a broken pipe in the basement helps to uncover all sorts of goodies) and cracked some tonight. Great wine.

    Very young but tasted it and it’s going to be a real good summer wine. The wife liked it very much.

    It's a very dry wine. Which I enjoy. But if bone dry isn't something you like, it probably isn't your thing.

    A Chilean Sangiovese from early 2018. Coming along really nice. Great with our Fathers Day steaks tonite!
