Just a couple of the wines we got into this weekend:
Black fruit and a lot of funky, barnyard animal notes were going on in this Noemie Goichot, Pommard, Burgundy, France, 1998. Definitely needed some food (like dem there meat and cheese in the background).
Nicknamed "Baby Sassacaia," this Guidalberto Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany, Italy, 2011, a 60% Cabernet Sauvignon/40% Merlot wine, was uber-high in acid, lots of deep red cherry and a noticeable tannic structure. A bit stinging on its own, it found its plushness with the marinara sauce consumed during dinner.
And the summer keeps rolling along...
