All four of the newest wines, Riesling, G, Amarone and Cab were racked to clean glass this week. The tastes that come through the yeast and CO2 are pretty good, with the Amarone the farthest along based on taste alone.

We had some homemade ribs with a Penfolds Hyland Shiraz last night. The wine was magnificent and worked really well with the smoky and spicy ribs.

We went to Jewell Towne in South Hampton NH this week and enjoyed a tasting with Peter and his staff. Many of the varities available for tasting will be unique if you are not already aware of the types commonly grown in New England. The Traminette was the mutual favorite.
