A week of trying hard and not quite succeeding, alas, with all of the runs just failing to hit the mark. Not sure why. The Romsey 5 is next weekend, and I have just not got the quality sessions in I'd like to have done. It will be an endurance battle..
Wine of this week (still sticking to moderate wines) is Syrah La Rosine 2005, Ogier. A lovely 'junior Cote-Rotie' from an excellent vintage, all redcurrants, sweet fruit, and an excellent weight - really not too heavy on the palate, but with plenty of bite. I'm delighted to see I have a couple more bottles of this, and also that I have ordered the 2007 en primeur.
Life can be good.
