Wednesday Wine Committee. Great hosting by Gavin. 1 sparkler, 4 whites, 4 reds and 2 dessert wines. All served blind as usual. This was similar to the Flowers Sea View before it with less powerful aromatics but more mineral, savory notes. Still pretty, with more in reserve. Older potpourri, lavender, underripe black cherries up front before a decidedly crushed rock and black pepper spice at the finish. Hold. I initially called this burgundy but decided to go with Sonoma pinot.
