    March 13, 2008 - Grenache y Mas Grenache-The Great CA Grenache-off (Cafe Cortadito): A beautiful little trifle of a wine. It was a wonderful, delicate counterpart to some of the more brutish Grenaches we tasted. This wasn't a wine that came at you, but instead drew you in softly, as when you lean in to hear a whisper. Here, the whisper was wild rasperries and earth and a slight vanilla creaminess. The palate, which 18 months ago had shown hollow, has fleshed out a bit and is much more complete. There is not a tremendous amount of nuance here, but this isn't a wine that aspires to greatness. It is just a wine that you want to drink and drink again.

    March 16, 2007 - This wine very much says it was made by Dave Corey! Unfiltered (and a bit cloudy) nice fruit flavors with some earthiness as well. It needs about 6 more months in bottle to come together. Will wait a little while before we open the next one.

    February 24, 2007 - strawberries, a bit of cinnomen, and a sense of earth. still a bit tannic. lacking acid. short finish. overall it's rather disjointed and lacks any true focus. i usually love core wines for the qpr, but i'm not sad this was my last bottle.
