Girard Old Vine Zinfandel 2008. This is the first bottle of wine I have purchased. The aroma is light and does not linger. To the taste it has reserve but natural flavor and flows smoothly upon the throat. The end has a slight wisp and tingle, with a light aftertaste that vanishes within seconds. To my naive expectations this wine is average to above average. For me, I must experience more in my journey into wine.
Smooth & Supple
Parducci Merlot 2008. Only the second bottle of wine in which I've had. Light aroma with not much linger. Nice smooth flavor with a mellow ending that tapers. Not sharp nor tingly as others. No after taste. An excellent wine by my novice account. In my novice opinion, this wine is above average. I will be ordering again.
