Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual. I had this about 6months ago and notes were similar. Main difference here is this initially smelled like it had American oak influence. Tar, Rose petal, and underripe black cherry. Because of my initial thoughts, I called this Rioja. Nice.

Another Wednesday Wine Committee for the books, this one in honor of a former WWC member, with the wines donates from his cellar by his family. A wonderful tribute. Wines tasted blind as usual. My guess here was between Sangiovese or Super Tuscan, so I was fairly close. Older red fruits alongside underripe blackberry. Rose petal, pipe tobacco and tar. Really nice.

Tart cherry, smoky blackberry, incense and tea leaves. Still a little tannic, but really beautiful wine.

Fading but still with some cherry, plumb fruit. Not much tannin remaining and very open now.

The nose hints at Bordeaux - plum and tobacco. The palate shows an earthy side in the forefront with big mouthcoating tannins. Blind, I may have pegged this as Bordeaux.
