April Wines

Didn’t take notes on many wines this month, spent a couple of evenings with friends sitting around enjoying some wine, but I prefer to not take formal notes in those situations, just when it’s just me or my wife and I.  It’s more controlled; I usually record tasting notes without food, then once the notes are done, I enjoy the wine as normal.  Making notes when I’m with friends always inflates my opinion of a wine, when you’re having fun, wine always tastes better.

Anyway, here’s what I drank this month:

2008 Lucky Star Pinot Noir

NV Mark Davidson Cabernet/Merlot and 2005 O’Neill Vosti Petit Batard

2007 BGA Cabernet Sauvignon

2008 Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Sélection Prestige

2006 Lemelson Vinyards Pinot Noir “Thea’s Selection”

Mixed bag this month, a 5/5, two 4/5, but also a 1/5.  28 wines so far this year, need to be around 34 now to stay on pace to taste 100, so I guess I’ll have to get busy this month.
