Wine Tasting

Crozes-Hermitage

We had a Crozes-Hermitage 2001 from producer Moillard-Grivot.

This wine is from a district in the Rhone valley with the same name. From this valley the grapes are usually Syrah.

The wine tasted and smelled nicely. Together with the wine we had lamb with potato sallad, and the combination worked fine. 🙂

(The wine gave me a black tounge, but not anyone else… strange…) 😛

You can find this wine at bolaget.

Wine Tasting

Tarapacá La Cuesta Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2000

Yesterday I tasted Tarapacá La Cuesta Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2000

The wine is from Maipo/Chile
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah

When I opened the bottle I could smell the C.S. grapes without dipping my nose into it. The color was deep red/blue and it kept that color all the way to the edge of the glass. The wine tasted like a rich C.S. wine with a bit of roughness from the Syrah. Afterward my toungue was all blue… 😛

Yeah… I liked it. 🙂
