What I Drank Last Weekend

Sorry for the delay. I had a couple nice bottles. The first was the Peter Lehman 2001 “The Barossa” Shiraz

At around $15 it’s not bad. Decent fruit but just a touch too many tannins on the finish. But that was just a prelude to one of the nicest wines I’ve ever had: The Ridge 2003 Pagani Ranch Zinfandel

I made the Ronery Steak au Poive for my Bride when she returned (there was no avoiding it after she read the posts) and Major Dad had been very clear that this was a wine not to be missed so after a bit of looking I was able to find a bottle at Vingo in Eatontown.
It runs about $32 I think, and
is it worth every penny. Simply massive amounts of cassis and plum fruity jamminess jumps and swirls all around in your mouth as you swill it. It is mostly Zinfandel but contains 6% Alicante Bouchet and 4% Petite Sirah. It is simply a stunningly yummy wine, and do not hesitate to buy it if you are lucky enough to see a bottle in a store.
