2005 Rezonja Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a big, dry, and full-bodied cabernet sauvignon from Sonoma with aromas of earth and spice on the nose. On the first night, this wine tasted leatherly with earthy herbs after opening. There was not a lot of fruit coming through on the first night. The second night provided only a slightly smoother finish, still with lingering tannins, and a taste of dark chocolate and blackberry.

This wine is a full and dark ruby color. It needs at least an hour to open up. I recommend decanting and pairing with red meats.

2008 Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir

I’ve decided to add another wrinkle to this blog and post some of wines I’ve been enjoying. Nothing special, but hopefully the frequency of my updates will pick up.

Elegant medium-bodied character to this lush and slightly darker colored Pinot Noir. Drank over two days, with increasing complexity. Lots of red berry fruit flavor, especially on the nose, balanced with soft tannins allowed this to drink smoothly with a lingering finish. Great by itself and has enough to be paired well with food.
