Fun with family, new and old friends, food, and wine (wine is for food), was a day to treat others with wines stored away for such a time as this; we poured three wines (links and a review below), tasted some succulent treats (cheeses, fruits, and meats), and had good fun in general.
Conversations included the value of Spotify, scary spiders, spine-chilling snakes, and more 'importantly': "You made me like three wines" (Swedish teetotaler).
Have a safe trip back home!
Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2010 Riesling Spätlese, $36,54-$42.99, 94 points
Ridge Lytton Springs 2014 Red Wine, $33.14-$38.99, 94 points
Domaine Séguinot-Bordet 2012 Chablis, $17.84-$22.99, 94 points, poured a glossy medium gold color.
Aromas of soft pome blossoms, warm wet stones, and hints of citrus were outstanding.
The light-plus body with good acidity sported engaging, yet sophisticated flavors of tangerine, lemon zest, edgy minerality, and peach, all of which contributed their own excellence to a harmonious gestalt.
Finished long and sublime on the enduring palate, bright ginger notes, and a perfect 12.5% alcohol.
