2016 Folie a Deux Cabernet, Alexander Valley.
Don’t know where I got it or when, but it’s Monday.
Surprisingly good @ Pop-N-Pour. A little sweet,
Checked cellartracker, and at $15, it’s a great
Monday night wine.
@rjquillin I thought is was good. I didn’t take formal notes though. I have 2-3 more I think. They came from Bevmo as part of their 5 cent sale, roughly at $15 each. Bevmo isnt known for quality juice in the 5 cent sale but it stuck out as a known producer and single vineyard so I grabbed a coupon and went on down to the ol’ bevmo.
Last night I had a kitchen sink blend-- some of the Wine Smith Norton (which was sound, but to me uninspiring), some '15 Apothic Dark, and a dash of Wine Smith Grenache (which again was sound, but not by itself to my taste; it really gave the blend some nice highlights, though).
Recently I’ve had a couple of really nice bottles: a '12 Coquerel Petite Sirah, and a '12 Laura Michael Dry Creek Zin. If I could drink like that all the time, I’d be supremely satisfied. And I’ve got a '13 Trinitas Old Vine Petite Sirah queued up for tonight.
Went digging in some containers that I had moved to Missouri and came up with a 2002 Dominique Portet Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon that I had purchased almost 8 years ago, and decided it was time to open it up. Rather enjoyable, as I tend to find Australian wines too much “in your face”.
