Wine Weekend Part 2
Day two brought sunny skies and a wide range of flavors both liquid and game. When the bounty was collected the consumption began. The menu consisted of Seared Ahi Tuna and eggplant bruscetta for starters, followed by fresh halibut from Point Loma. The first taste on our journey down liquid highway was a recommendation from Rasta Man Mikel from San Diego Wine Co. This hairy bean bag thought a 2007 Guarachi Cabernet from Napa would be comparable to the Caymus....that man spent too much time living with the Kebbler Elves. The flavor was not as smooth and did not posses the greatness of its competition. The content level was the only thing that went above Caymus standing in at 15.2%, making it a great start to the evening. Needless to say we crushed that bottle to make our way to the next one, Red Wine from Orin Swift called The Prisoner. The 15.2% content and smooth flavors had me chained to the wall like the time at Madame Molly's house of Pleasure with a leather mask, nipple clamps and hot wax. This bottle was awesome and "swiftly" took top honors for the day (thanks for the memories). After having my butt smacked by a studded paddle we needed something to bring us back to reality. Trefethen 2006 Cabernet was just the wine to calm our blood. The flavors seemed great and the content was soso complementing the other choices. This being said I have no remembering of the last wine and I would love to give it a fair chance in the future.
