Local rep Jenna Fisher recently returned from a two week whirlwind tour of Spain courtesy of Olé Imports. Olé has a diverse and fascinating portfolio from classic Rioja to varietals and appellations rarely seen outside of Spain. Along with her usual youthful enthusiasm, Jenna will bring a variety of wines, photos and stories to share from all corners of Spain. FREE.
2005 was considered a potentially great vintage upon release. After the ripe 2003s and charming but light 2004s, 2005 promised ageworthy wines of balance and structure. Not until 2008 was there another “great” vintage making 2005 a benchmark of sorts for the middle of the decade. So how are they drinking? Let’s find out as we revisit some of the more ageworthy, elegant bottlings from top wineries:
Thomas Dundee Hills
Domaine Drouhin Laurène
Cameron Abbey Ridge
St. Innocent Anden Vineyard (part of Seven Springs)
Evesham Wood Le Puits Sec
