Tried the 2013 X-block Syrah tonight. Too much oak for my palate. I guess time will tell if it integrates with cellaring. I have doubts but can’t complain at $16/bottle.

I did not really remember curry. I will have to keep that in mind when I open the next bottle. I really enjoyed it. Reminded me of a subtle sherry. Definitely for the adventurous. But I did not pour any of my first bottle down the drain. It is a nice aperitif sipping wine. Also went well with Asian food.

Cracked a sparkling Vermentino tonight. Nothing crazy complex but enjoyable, particularly for the price. Apple and lemon lime, went well with our Thai dinner.

Had the Sparkling Vermentino and found it very fine for the $14. Very fresh and bright with balanced acid but definitely crisp. Citrus fruits But not enamel stripping. Nice for an porch sipper or mimosa maker.

Opened a sparkling Vermentino this evening with paella. I really like this one for the money. Actually drinks better at a cool room temp with some time to let the effervescence calm down. Nice creamy apple, lime, biscuit notes.
