The summer is nearing its end, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t share several reds that we sampled along the way. Some scored high marks (like the Atilla’s Selection from Buena Vista); others like the Toro or Navardia will probably fall into the “been there done that” camp. The real fun is in discovering which is which. Here’s a fly-by for your consideration:
2011 Mannara Primitivo, Puglia, Italy.
2012 Cruz Alba Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza, Argentina.
2011 Insomnia Red Wine Blend, California, USA.
2012 Navardia, Rioja, Spain.
2013 Toro Tempranillo, Spain.
2011 Cairanne La Cigalette, Rhone Villages, France.
2010 Solanera, vinas viejas, Yecla, Spain.
2012 Buena Vista Atilla’s Selection Zinfandel, Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California, USA.
