Briary raspberry, cherry, plum, hay and a hint of spearmint on the extremely fragrant, perfumed nose. Lush red fruits flood the palate with whisps of toasty oak and fine minerals supporting. Good acidity keeps this fresh and long on the dry finish. Absolutely delicious. 31% Zinfandel, 26% Tempranillo, 15% Mouvedré, 10% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 8% Touriga Nacional.
After a year of procrastinating, here it is. Just one quick bit of advice for anyone about to open their owner operated business: get your website done before you open. Once the doors are open your available hours are almost non-existent (as I write this at 1:15am). I will say there is a great sense of accomplishment that comes with creating your own website. It is your voice; your window to the world. Whether anyone reads it or not is a different story. 😉
I miss writing. I’m excited to get back into it. Here you will find my wine reviews, tasting notes, event listings and other Winesmith related info. It’s just a shell at the moment but will be filling up with quality daily content soon. You can comment here and I encourage you to.
The next big wine tasting is Wednesday October 14th in benefit for CASA. See the “Tastings” tab on the top menu for all the info. As a jazz version of Radiohead’s “Reckoner” from In Rainbows plays, I say good night.
