Patricius Tokaj Sárga Muskotály – 2009 – 9.2 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

A wine with a great diversity of notes supporting a multitude of foods. Spring-summer like; best enjoyed year round. A wine with a pronounced minerality and acid signature. Notes of Green-yellow citrus, melon, pear, sesame, cashew and floral and white tea.

¡Salud!

Talley Arroyo Grande Rosemary Vineyard Pinot Noir – 2000 – 9.3 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

A decade later this wine is still formidable–powerful, muscular; giving notes of blueberry Confit, Eucalyptus, pine nuts, allspice.  Dark and time i in the bottle was a complete benefit.  This wine has another 5-8 years left–amazing for a US Pinot Noir.

Bottle #4435

¡Salud!

2011 A Brand New Wine Year – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

Another great new wine year is ahead.  A year as in years past to make discovery and even hone in on favourite wines and wine regions.

I look forward to a whole new year of wine events, recording wine videos, wine tasting and meeting both the producers and the enthusiasts–though there are many variables it is essential to bring together the individuals who have both make wine and those who consume it–and sometimes those can be the same people–but it is fun to share a slice of social pizza and make discovery, compare notes and to even have a common good feeling about a particular wine, varietal and region.

I want to continue the journey of tasting wines and regions that are familiar and I want to layer on wine varietals and regions that get little press–and there are many.  Much more to come and I look forward to hearing from you as well!

A great and wonderful 2011 to you!

¡Salud!
