From the Cellar

A Birthday Dinner (Ontario / California)

19 Sep 2015

(May 10, 2012) ... My wife is having a birthday, or at least we're celebrating it tonight, and because she digs on sparkling I opened a bottle of Coyote's Run 2009 Pinot Noir Rose Sparkling which still has lots of strawberry pith notes, though age seems to have tamed this one a bit because you can smell and taste its lack of freshness, but it's still tasty with good acidity with a slightly bitter finish. Heck it's bubbles.

I then opened a Michael David 2006 7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel and this thing is a beauty. Nose is still loaded with plum, black cherry, mocha, and smoked meat (which is awesome to find in Zin); flavours are very intense with white pepper, spiced plum, black cherry and a touch of vanilla.
