- NV Rack & Riddle Sparkling Rosé (considering this for New Year's)
- 2008 Praxis Pinot Noir
- 2007 Kunde Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (had the '09 on rpm tour)
- NV Quady Winery Orange Muscat Essensia
Also curious as to how you liked the Hunt Country LH Vignoles. That one I have had several times, it's one of my favorite dessert wines.
Understand ~nothing~ was drunk from a wine glass, but rather 3~4 ounce mini glasses.
R&R, better than the Michigan stuff, but doesn't match IH; no surprise there. Pleasant and simple, nothing objectionable.
Praxis, pretty typical PN, nothing memorable or objectionable. Not a lot of fruit, and lacking the earth/funk I like.
Kunde, P&P kinda green with a bit of chemical something that dissipated quickly. Dark fruits with some oak/tannin, decent finish. Need to revisit this one.
Quady, only had a sip, another one to revisit, but went well in the horizontal the other night.
Just re-tasting now, with some sweetish gooey cake/pie thing SWMBO made that needed more time in the oven; gobs of tasty fruit, light on the palate, could use a bit more acid to balance, but at the price we paid for this would buy again in an instant.
This was not a afternoon for tasting, far from it, everything was enjoyed and nothing was objectionable, or memorable for that matter.
Hunt, yeah, gotta get some more.
