Introduction

Had Blake and JC over for a couple bottles of wine and pizza from Angelico Pizzeria.

Flight 1 (3 Notes)

  • 2004 Casa Marin Pinot Noir Litoral 91 Points

    Chile, San Antonio Valley

    Very seductive nose full of sour cherries, and an attractive meatiness. This wine has great depth and character, and I felt that this was probably the 2nd or 3rd best pinot noir I've tasted recently. Very full-bodied pinot that seems to be hitting its stride right now.

  • 2007 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Central Coast 87 Points

    USA, California, Central Coast

    Sweet nose of candied plums. Didn't necessarily have the depth that I was hoping for, and felt somewhat disjointed. This is a very fruit driven wine that was slightly over-the-top for my palate. Probably could use some time in bottle...

  • 2005 Domaine des Baumard Coteaux du Layon Cuvée Le Paon 93 Points

    France, Loire Valley, Anjou-Saumur, Coteaux du Layon

    Amazing depth on the nose of caramel, apricots, and kerosene. Mouthfeel of this wine is outrageous - totally coating my palate. The tropical fruits explode here, with pineapple, guava, passion fruit, mango and banana intermixed with caramel and white chocolate notes. Extrdoinarily sweet, but with extreme finesse and balance. Stunning bottle.
