Fine White

Taylor Fladgate Fine White Port

Douro D.O.P., Portugal
13 days ago

Elizabeth scored this wine: 90/100

First time with a white port...reminded me of a good Niagara Ice Wine. ET, Maureen, and I all enjoyed the port and for the price I felt it was a great choice. I'm going to see if I can snag another bottle!

Montes Alpha Carmenère 2015

Colchagua Valley D.O., Chile
15 days ago

Elizabeth scored this wine: 91/100

This Chilean Carmenere was consumed on Sat, Oct 3rd with Filet Mignon off the Barbie! Just the immediate family (ET, Maureen, myself); baked potato, corn on the cob, mushrooms, etc. Wonderfully smooth wine that disappeared too soon!

Elizabeth scored this wine: 91/100

This bottle was consumed on Aug 3rd, 2020. The dinner was steak with the usual fixings. Parents, Kat and Tom, Maureen, ET and I. The Shiraz Sauvignon mix was excellent with our meal and definitely a 90+ wine...thoroughly enjoyed on a thoroughly enjoyable day!

Old Vine Vintners Blend

Ravenswood Old Vine Vintners Blend Zinfandel 2014

California, United States

Elizabeth scored this wine: 91/100

Finally uncorked on Father's Day 2020 (June 21st). Kat and Tom over for late afternoon BBQ of steaks, baked potatoes, asparagus, caesar salad, rolls and cheese...and ET's rhubarb, apple, strawberry crumble for dessert. And the big surprise - an announcement of TNG!!!!! The Zin was a great hit for ET, Tom, Maureen, and I (Kat practicing abstinence). Like good troopers we downed the 1.5 l bottle. Aged well, and definitely deserving the 91 score I gave it.

Lasagna dinner with Fr Larry and the McSheffrey's. I enjoyed the wine although in the swirl of the evening it was difficult to really appreciate; hence the 90 rating.
