It used to be that many wines that were entered into the MidAmerican Wine Competition were overly sweet. Thank god that’s not completely the truth anymore. Though it still sees its fair share of sweet ones (my stomach can attest to that).
Tonight I tasted two wines that had been opened on Friday or Saturday of last week and went straight to my fridge. Fortunately, they both ended up being fairly decent.
The first was Adam Puchta’s “Desire.” I could drink this whole bottle. It was light and crisp with hints of apple and slightly floral. Right away I thought, “Oh, this is a goody.” Happily I have an unopened bottle of it on deck.
For some reason I can’t get to the picture I took of this one, I’ll post it later.
The second was te 2012 Dry Vignoles by Noboleis Vinyards from Augusta, Mo. This one was still good and very drinkable. Though a little more sweet than the other wine tonight. It has a nice citrus hint to it.
oops, that’s not quite in focus.
