It was a delightful wine tasting experience with our very knowledgeable and friendly host, Richard. He was very informative and friendly; he went above and beyond our expectations. There were two red roses on our table for our anniversary celebration; what a lovely gesture! We had the tasting room to ourselves, which worked great for us. We were able to ask questions about the wine, grapes, and learned quite a great deal. We were introduced to a wine called Nebbiolo, and it was lively, with some floral notes. It was interesting and nearly won us over to bring a bottle home. Zoe's Dance was a very dark and intense wine that I thought was dark fruit-forward and very lovely. We enjoyed all the wines and ultimately decided on a bottle of 2012 Reserve Syrah.
There are only two tables due to COVID and the other booking canceled so we were able to ply the winemaker with questions about the wines, and we learned a great deal. Our sampling included four reds, including a delightful Nebbiolo. Nebbiolo is fairly new to the States, we learned, and was paler than the others we tasted. However, the lighter color didn't mean lighter flavor. Hints of cherry, with and tobacco were rounded out with spice and hints of Red Mountain terroir. Zoe's Dance, a blend of Merlot & Petit Verdot had hints of spice and berry with lovely tannins and was so dark it was almost inky. We had a hard time choosing what to take home, and all of the selections were delightful. But in the end, a bottle of Nebbiolo was tucked in a bag for the trip home.
Tasting experience was one of the best ever. Info from the source who knew the grapes, the history the details. Wine was fabulous. Highly recommend this fantastic authentic experience. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and stories.
