What We're Drinking Now - More Catch Up

Monday, February 4


PODERI ANGELINI PRIMITIVO DI MANDURIA 2008
VINTAGES 268136  $17.95

Grandaddy of Red Zinfandel.  Beautiful aromas of chalky minerals and red briars move to black raspberry, date plum, spice, and clean earth on the palate.  A little short on the finish.  I'm 89 points on this wine. 






Tuesday, February 5


CLARENDON HILLS LIANDRA MOURVÈDRE 2007
VINTAGES 219493  $39.90 
Lovely aromatics of hung meat, eucalypt and red briars and blueberry.  These flavours persist on the palate, highlighted by sweet black aussie licorice on the finish.  I'm 90+ points on this wine, short of the 93 bestowed upon it by Jay Miller from the Wine Advocate.  Drink Now.

Paired with grilled bison steaks.
