Charlie and I drink some very nice wines on a frequent basis. So, I thought I would start posting what wine we drank during the week that was our “wine of the week.” Week no. 1’s wine was:
Costers del Siurana 2004 Miserere (Priorat, Spain) – purchased in 2010 for $70, blend of 27% cabernet sauvignon, 27% garnacha, 26% tempranillo, 10% merlot and 10% carinena, decanted for about an hour, red and black fruits, smooth tannins, easy drinking; buy again
Looking for something to go with pizza, we decided to open an older zinfandel. Our pick was surprisingly good, reminding us how well zinfandel goes with pizza. So, I am going to add a second “wine of the week.”
DeLoach 2004 Forgotten Vines Zinfandel (Sonoma County) – purchased at the winery in 2006 for $24, a velvety mouthfeel, long finish; buy again
