APRIL 30, 2008 [Altus] Polaner tasting standouts
Both the 2005 Altus Cab & 2005 Merus Cab were complex wines. The 2005 Altus Napa Cab was blended with 5% Malbec, Petit Verdot & Merlot (3 of the Bordeaux varietals) and was aged in 80% new medium toasted oak (a high percentage). Got back from the West Coast this morning and I hope to write up about day 1 of my wine country trip tomorrow. But now, my long overdue summary of the wines I was able to try at the Polaner tasting.

JUNE 8, 2009 [Altus] 249 bottles of wine on the wall
2004 JE Ngeringa Altus Pink Semillon, McLaren Vale. I’m back from the fantastic Landmark Australia Tutorial. Above is a picture of (some of) the wines opened during the tremendous five days. Yes, it’s 249 bottles of wine on the wall! Over the next few days and weeks, I’ll be posting on and off some of highlights of the conference/event, sharing my new found knowledge. Really, I could post about each and every session since they were all so interesting and informative.
