February 2012 Blind Tasting

We enjoyed the evening and nice to return to the blind tasting format.  Winning wines were the dry and delicate Riesling from Villa Wolf 2010 Riesling Dry Pfalz  $15 from Mosheim/Mahmoud/Issa/Smith with a subtle 11.5 alcohol content. Along with the full bodied, well balanced 2006 Belpoggio Brunello Di Montalcino $39.99 Hege/Tenen/Gamson picked from a nice selection of Brunellos with good years ’04, ’05 and ’06. Well done for us to blindly go into a vertical tasting of this varietal.
