Friday night - Dalton Alma Bordeaux Blend 2009 and Ella Valley Pinot Noir 2008.
Shabbat lunch - Tavor Adama Roussanne 2012 and Recanati Petite Sirah/Zinfandel Reserve 2011.
Could you please describe a bit your impressions on the 08 EV Pinot, Tavor Roussanne and 11 PS/Zin?
This was our second bottle of Tavor Adama Roussanne 2012. On the nose it reminded me of Sauvignon Blanc - tropical fruits especially guava but it is very light and upon tasting there was more citrus fruits and melon without the guava. A nice and different white wine. In the morning I finally had the chance to taste the Midbar Orange and Viognier (just me and the storeowner) - I found the Orange to be nothing special but the Viognier - WOW - the best one I've ever tasted.
I had originally planned to open a Gvaot Gofna Pinor Noir 2011 but the store where I tasted the Midbar had the Ella Valley Pinot Noir 2008 for a decent price. An excellent PN - full-bodied, cherries and herbs.
This was my first tasting of the Recanati Petite-Sirah/Zinfandel Reserve 2011 and really enjoyed it - medium-bodied, deep purple, chocolate/mocha, berries and almonds.
