June Gathering of The Flock

Saturday, June 26, 2010

Today's theme for the wino's get together was Grenache & Grenache Blends. Grenache is one of the main grapes for Chateauneuf du Pape but not one bottle of that wine showed up. Remy graciously agreed to make her Paella for the event and hauled all her Paella equipment to Redondo Beach. I will say the Paella was outstanding. We had a small group today. Saturday always brings fewer people and the distance is a deterrent for some people. If its not in their own backyard it gets to be too much for them. Which is too bad because even though this was a single varietal grape from anyplace the wines were all interesting and some were exceptionally good.

One of the wines I liked the best was a 1998 D'Arenberg, Ironstone Pressings. A blend of Grenache, Shiraz ans Mouvedre.

Next month we are off to Mendocino County for the wines.
