WTN: EdmundsStJohn Heart of Gold '13..(short/boring)

by TomHill » Sun Jun 15, 2014 11:50 am

Pobega'd this last night:
1. EdmundsStJohn Heart of Gold ElDoradoCnty WTW (11.9%; 61% Vermentino/39% GrenacheBlanc) ThumbnailMoonlight/Fairplay 2013: Pale yellow color; very perfumey/fragrant/floral/carnations/Vermentino light earthy/stony quite lovely nose; fairly tart bit earthy/stony very perfumed/fragrant floral/carnations/mango very pretty flavor; long some earthy/stony/dusty/ElDorado terroir very floral/carnations/dandelions/spicy lovely finish; much like the Ryme Vermentino but more perfumed and more stony; speaks strongly of Rolle and strongly of ElDorado terroir; a really lovely/drinkable/pretty white at a very fair price. $23.00

A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. I hate wines like this. I opened it when I started cooking dinner. I'd take a drink and think: "Damn that's good". And then take anuther pour. By the time I sat down to eat, more than half the btl was gone. Danged if I can figure out where it all went to!! :-)
2. Screwtop: Steve usually btls his whites in a Stelvin closure. I grasped the waist of the btl & started unscrewing. I turned & turned and the entire capsule turned buut refused to come off. I realized I'd stripped the threads on the top. So I had to get out a box cutter (the retractable ones...like they use to hijack airplanes) and carefully cut the top from the collar. Then cut my finger trying to get the screwtop off from the jagged edge. When you open these btls, it's probably important to grip the collar of the screwcap before twisting off the top. Will practice this technique on anuther btl tonight.

Hey...Hey. I'm only allocated one pallet of this wine each year. You're gonna get my allocation cut, Steve. :lol:

I had a bottle of this with Steve before dinner, at a restaurant. And we had pretty much the same results before the first course arrived!

we DID share it with Claude, though...
I don't know just how I'm supposed to play this scene, but I ain't afraid to learn...
