We drank a bottle of the Talomas that I’ve written about earlier tonight with dinner. Post dinner I decided I wanted another glass, and fetched a bottle of Foppiano 1999 Petite Sirah from the cellar. I love this wine. Spice, pepper, berries, chocolate, and a little bit of the "barnyard" that Pinot Noir is famous for. Big fruity nose. Long, long, long finish. The 1999 is delicious, but fruity. The 1998 was a brooding, bitter-sweet wine, even bigger, better, and more enticing.
No, I haven’t had any wine to drink tonight… not at all!
