You know I like Bubbles Wine Bar in Morgan Hill… I wrote about it here.
It’s Friday, again, and time to unwind.
What better way, than to travel a whole mile and a half to our favorite local wine bar for drinks and small plates?
As alway, I got myself a flight…
Here’s how it went down…
Xiloca Garnacha ($6 per glass)
Color: It’s dark… You see the picture.
Nose: Tires and mint.
Taste: Earthy notes with hints of clove and spice.
Score: Not bad… 87
Carol Shelton “Monga” Old Vines Zinfandel ($8 per glass)
Color: Look… It’s dark… Haven’t you seen the picture?
Nose: Sugary and buttery with bright red fruit.
Taste: Buttery oak. Red fruit. Nice round tannins with a medium long finish.
Score: Not badder… 87+
Coterie Cellars Syrah ($12)
Color: What’s your problem, dude? It’s dark… Check the photo!
Nose: Tight. Not much going on. There is a touch of chalk (which I always love), but not enough to drive me bonkers.
Taste: This wine is DRY. Dry cranberry. Dry raspberry.
Score: Meh… Not a big fan. It’s okay… 86.
The wines I tried were not that great tonight, but what do you want? They can’t all be gems.
But with food like this…
How can you complain?
