WITH SIX YOU GET BAZINGA!: MOGUL MIKE KICKS OFF THE INEBRIANT’S EXPRESS DROP OFF SERVICE FOR 2013, INTERNATIONAL STYLE

130115-172328

Mogul Mike from DTK rolled in for an order, line up an appointment for later this month, and finally dropped off some samples for me and the staff to try.  A veritable hodgepodge of wines from South Africa, Germany and California were included:

Arabella Sauvignon Blanc South Africa 2012.  Grade=Very Good.  Clean, crisp, tart SB with nice hints of citrus and tropical fruit notes.

Journey’s End Chardonnay Stellenbosch 2011.  Grade=Outstanding.  Rich and creamy Chardonnay, with vanillin oak, butterscotch and peach cobbler notes running through its full-bodied presence across the palate.

Peirano Estates The Other White Lodi 2009.  Grade=Very Good.  Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier done semi-sweetly to give you a racy, fruit-driven white blend, perfect for spicier fare.

St. Christopher Riesling Kabinett Piesporter Goldtropfchen 2011.  Grade=Very Good.  A solid Riesling, semi-dry, with notes of Rainier cherries, limeade and white peaches.  Undertones of spice and mineral give it depth.

Peirano Estates The Other Red Lodi 2009.  Grade=Very Good.  Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah join forces in this “Orin Swift-styled” wine, jammy and juicy with medium-to-full-bodied dark fruits and spices, without the huge price tag.

Peirano Estates The Immortal Zinfandel Old Vines Lodi 2011.  Grade=Outstanding.  For the sexy red lovers, this decadent Zinfandel possesses superripe notes of blueberry and boysenberry fruit, graham cracker crust, black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes.  A real bad boy red.
