Finding a Hidden Treasure

Posted by Paul Sass, November 16th, 2010 | 1 Comment

While rooting through my wine cellar last night, I found a dusty little gem!  A 2003 Limited Edition Italian Primitivo Syrah!  We poured some into our breathable Eisch glasses to bring out the best in this wine.   It had developed an absolutely gorgeous nose and complexity that would rival many expensive commercial varieties.

Some people think they can tell the difference between a commercial and a home made wine, but it is usually due to insufficient aging.  Wines that have proper structure can age beautifully over the years.

We encourage you to hide away a few bottles for special occasions in the future.  You will be justly rewarded!

Anyone else like to share their comments on hidden treasures on their wine racks?

Last night we decided to enjoy a special commercial wine to celebrate our engagement. It was a 2005 Etude (Napa Valley Cab Sauv) which we purchased on our trip to Napa. I won't say the price, but it was the most expensive wine we've ever bought and sells locally for close to $100.00. We decanted it and decided it would pair with steak. In the meantime we wanted something to drink with our apis. I brought out our last bottle of our hand crafted Stag's Leap Merlot which was bottled in April of 08. We were thrilled with it. I was almost disappointed in the Etude after drinking our Merlot. Will definitely make it again and leave it for at least 3 years this time.
