    A very tasty Tawny Porto, in the glass you’ll find pale amber inviting the first slurp. Overall this wine has brilliant complexity. From the moment it makes its first splash down in the glass, my nose is hit with hints of dried mandarin oranges, candied walnuts and freshly roasted almonds dipped in toffee. After my first slurp, bang honeyed fruit and burnt-toffee tattoo my tongue. This smoothly-textured port will entice long sip after sip with its long lingering finish.

    The one I am reviewing today is the Mount Palomar 2004 Cloudbreak Gold Medal Winner. When tasting I knew nothing of the award, but upon first swirl there was an indication of the coming attraction. Upon first Swirl: This wine has a deep garnet core, fading away to pale ruby rim and that's what I call extraction! Upon first Sniff: You find in the nose it's a touch high toned with lots of cherry and plum fruit caressed by lithe notes of sandalwood. (fragrant yellowish heartwood) Upon first Sip: A solid core ripe, blackberry and black currant fruit, with some sweet spices bringing it all together effortlessly upon my palate, waneing into a delightfully long and persistent finish! Weighing in: Alcohol: 14.4% and resting upon 20 months in newer French and American Oak Barrel imparting smoothe tannins. Composition: 61% Cab Sauvignon, 27% Merlot; 5% Cab Franc, 5% Carmenere, 2% Petite Verdot Other wines of note: Castelletto 2005 Sangiovese and the Castelletto 2005 Trovato My Recommendation: Drink or hold, Price is a factor at $50.00 each, it drops from favorable QPR status which kept my purchase of this wine to just one. A little pricey considering it's contemporaries in the meritage class of similar quality selling for half this price. Exclusivity is factor, but still does not merit this price point. That's is it for now until next time, Cheers everyone!
