It’s not necessarily how it sounds; The Tasting Mat. It’s not a physical location.
It is, however, a physical object. It’s your guide through the tasting. And as such, it’s a very important document.
Page 1. Three wines. It begins.
2006 Grenache. Feral, wild, exotic. Delicious.
2007 Syrah. Full, rich, decadent. Divine.
2009 Old School. Fleshy,unctuous, concentrated. Sensual.
Mat 2. Three more wines.
2010 Paso Robles. Ripe, concentrated, fruit-driven. Crazy drinkable.
2010 East Bench. Full-bodied, fruit-forward, round. Crazy approachable.
2010 Geyserville. Elegant, refined, sophisticated. Crazy complex.
And now the grand finale. Page 3.
Three vintage vertical of young Monte Bello.
Wine keeps on sippin’, sippin’, sippin’, into the future …
