Friday, August 27, 2010 “Staff Favorites: Part One”
Chateau Calabre 2007*** light grapefruit, lingers on finish
Domaine Saint Nabor 2009 Gris de Nabor*** honeysuckle, red fruit, quench your thirst
2007 Treana Red*** allspice, I wonder about the price
Guardian Cellars 2007 "The Wanted"**** black currants, berries, big. I also wonder about the price on this one.
Ridge 2006 Lytton Springs, Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel** we had this back in February were the taste was right on. Today it was weak and offered nothing. May have been blown away by the Treana and Guardian.
