In our monthly wine club, We’re working through the suggested tastings in Great Wine Made Simple: Straight Talk from a Master Sommelier. I’m just going to be giving a quick run-down of this month’s wines. All were served slightly chilled and paired with steak and potatoes.
2011 MacMurray Ranch Pinot Noir
Ruby-colored and leggy. Medium-bodied and harmoniously balanced, with a medium finish. Overall 5/5 stars and would definitely drink again.
2010 Chateau Ste. Michelle Merlot
Garnet-colored. Light-bodied. Short on the finish, but overall 4/5 stars and would definitely drink again.
2010 Qupe Syrah
Garnet-colored. Medium bodied and well-balanced with a long finish. Overall 4/5 stars and would definitely drink again.
