"Wine AND Spirits
Boutique of New Hampshire"
and the familiar NH Liquor Store Logo underneath and inconspicuous as a marketing plus.
Just a thought!
Well, I'm not going to leave without giving a big plus to another wine and where I purchased it:
From Bella Vino, 4 Cobbertts Pond Road in Windham, New Hampshire (Now closed), I picked-up the Wind Gap Castelli Knight Ranch 2007 Syrah.
WOW! This wine needs all the Big Adjectives I could Muster: Massive, Muscular, Meaty, and Macho, come to mind. For me, this wine began with a wine aerator and about a one-third full Cabernet Sauvignon glass. Out came Big aromas of bacon fat (Too strong) and hidden blackberries, especially currant, with plum and fig. All the big aromas, tannins, and flavors, too strong at first, toned down into a wonderful experience that was akin to breaking a wild Mustang.
The Wind Gap Castelli Knight Ranch 2007 Syrah, approximately $45.00, 91 points, developed (revealed) layer upon layer of character and depth over four days (A first for me). This wine needs to be decanted, and I've been told will bottle well for ten years.
The only other wine I can compare this with is the slightly more floral 2006 Two Hands Lily's Garden, but in the end they are two different animals. However, I think if you like the one, you'll like the other.
Oh, Spanish wines part two will be coming, and Zinfandel is never off my mind; I've recently purchased some very interesting new Zinfandel wines and can't wait to get to them.
