First post, first review

January 9th, 2008 | Uncategorized

After a few celebrations and a brief norovirus (don’t ask), I finally find the time to wish you all a very Happy New Year – a healthy, safe and prosperous 2008.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, we have just received our copy of a new guide, produced by Wines from Spain and distributed throughout the United States. Our entry is for Castro Martin 2005, and the tasting note, written by Doug Frost (Master Sommelier and MW), reads as follows:

“The aromas show both red and green apple, white peach, apple blossom, and some honey; dusty rocks and minerals are prevalent in the nose as well. The mouth is a bit fleshier, with sweet peach skin, apple, lots of ripe citrus, and a stony finish. I’m sure there are other combinations, but this wine just loves seared scallops.”

Who are we to argue?
