Good Morning Gentle Readers,
TWC picked up a bottle of 2006 Panarroz Jumilla for one reason. Wine Advocate popped for a 90 and the sign said so. Here's what Robert Parker had to say.....
An amazing bargain from Spain, this blend of mourvdre, grenache, and syrah bursts with plum, blackberry, and licorice. There is a bit of pepper as well, and the wine is silky, soft, and opulent.
Wrong, wrong, wrong. It is not a great bargain, although it is from Spain.
Just to be fair, I let it sit for 24 hours. No help.
Now, there is a possibility that TWC got a corked bottle or some other story, but that is not likely. Reality says that this wine is boring, bland, and exhibits little of the plum, blackberry, or licorice in the aforementioned WA review. It is an odd and relatively unpleasant wine. Parker can have my share.
Maybe I just don't like the wine. Fair enough. But it ain't a 90 and I ain't buying it again.
And why the heck did they kill off Mr Echo, who was arguably one of the more interesting characters on Lost. Yes. I got Season Three for Christmas. Yes. My children love this show and it is a fixture at the Casa.
