I forgot to write about the last WSM Wine Show and Sale.
The biggest thing for me was finding that Gato Negro merlot 2010 tasted EXACTLY like a Cabernet sauvignon that was @5X the price. Also Gato Negro has a moscato for the first time. It isn’t as elegant as really good eiswein, but it is a very satisfactory dessert wine for my palate.
And, frankly, my palate isn’t so refined that the “less costly” wines aren’t the best choice for me.
