Wines in January

As I’ve mentioned before, I also blog at The Grand Crew, a community wine blog.  I’m not a wine expert, I just love drinking it and I love learning about it, so I’m having some fun sharing my experiences.

Here are the wines I’ve had this month where I took notes.  I don’t note all the wines I drink, I don’t note wines I have in restaurants (unless it’s a wine tasting), or at parties.  These are wines from my “cellar” (a wine cooler, a wine rack, and a cool dark corner of a closet) that I either purchased or someone gave me.

2006 Domaine de Carobelle Gigondas

2005 Château Sénéjac

<2008 Astica Cuyo

2007 Fatascià Kailá

2006 Saxon Brown “Owl Box” Syrah

2009 Rustenberg Brampton Unoaked Chardonnay

2006 Monte Antico

2009 Vina y Bordegas Estacion Chardonnay

2008 Les Galopieres Pouilly-Fuissé

The wines I gave high ratings are bolded, these are wines I will probably go buy again and wines I would give as gifts.

One of my goals this year is to taste and track at least 100 wines.  I’m shooting for 10 a month to make sure I hit that, as there might be repeats, or months I don’t have the opportunity to drink as much wine.  The best way to learn about wine is to drink it, right?
