The rewards and frustrations of home winemaking

“Sail Bay Sundown” 2-year Tasting Note

We finally opened the last bottle of our RJ Spagnols Limited Release Argentinian Trio white blend.  This wine was bottled about 2 years ago now, and it was a good thing we were drinking the last bottle.  We really loved this wine, in fact it won a silver medal and “Best of Class” at the San Diego county fair last year, but it is definitely past its prime.  It has really mellowed over time; it lost its crispness, now tastes like an oaky chardonnay — even though there was no oak in this wine.  It was definitely better within the first year.
