    Re: What Wine Are You Drinking? Spring/Summer 2013

    Just a random pick in the grocery store - Las Rocas Garnacha 2009 - Spain. Enjoying this one, just a very pleasant berry profile, inexpensive, will pick up again.

    Jono, if you can find an '08 in the Las Rocas you will do yourself a GREAT favor to buy all they have.

    What Wine Are You Drinking? Spring/Summer 2013

    My wife's a teacher and today was the last day of school. To celebrate we went to the tasting room at Kiler Grove Winegrowers. They make wine in the SLC from grapes they grow in Paso Robles, CA. Friendly folks and a good tasting. We came home with a bottle of their Zinergy 2010, look forward to spending some more time with it.

    Drank a 2011 bottle of Mer Soleil Silver Unoaked Chardonnay over the course of 2 nights recently. Pretty good Chard, imo. I think I prefer the cleaner, unoaked taste to the oak and butter in most chards.

    had a great Merlot from Napa tonight. Shafer. Smells like when you walk into the wine caves in Napa.
    big wine to me; nice fruit. I think it'd stand up to many Cabs.
    had it with a steak and asparagus. My son liked it with his cheeseburgers, too.

    we will be visiting the winery in Sept.
    downside: $50.

    Today the wife and I finished off a Tempranillo (Tinta de Toro) from Toro in Spain tonight called Viriato, 2009 vintage. One of my favorite Spanish reds from Trader Joe's. Great value.
