Fruity Night

Ah well, those nice evenings have started. Nothing better than sitting outside and relaxing with a nice glass of vino. The Prado Ray, Roble, Ribera del Duero, 2003 is a no-nonsense fruity young wine from a hot vintage. It does better when allowed to breathe.
The Verdict: Good.
Value: Good at about 15 bucks a bottle.
For a mouthful of jam, try the Rabbit Ridge, Westside Zin, Paso Robles, 2003. This one packs quite the punch at 15.6% alcohol, but it hides well in all that fruit. Also has a little bit of cola on the palate (sounds wierd - jam and cola??? but it works). Don't expect any finesse or meaty tannins in this one, though.
The Verdict: Good.
Value: fair at $27; can do better for this price (see for instance yesterdays posting - the Blackwell shiraz is similar price, but a better value).

Coco factor: Koko preferred the cheaper wine!

cheers!!
