13 Sep Another Red Mountain Friday
On this Friday the 13th, my main objective was to pick up our September wine shipment at Frichette Winery on Red Mountain. In addition, while I was up there, maybe I would visit my other friends as well at Fidelitas and Col Solare. So that’s exactly what I did. The tasting at Frichette was really nice. Firen and Kathy treated me like royalty, and the 2017 Petit Verdot was freaking amazing!!! Our shipment included a bottle of the 2017 Red Path Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and a bottle of the 2017 Quintessence Vineyard Petit Verdot. What a great way to start my weekend!
After a quick visit to Fidelitas to coordinate a BBQ with Bryce Appleby, I headed up to Col Solare. This is my place to relax, find solace and taste the wines I love so much. Of course, Friday’s at Col Solare have become a tradition for Aaronswinechronicles.com. On Fridays, I’m almost expected to visit the wine palace atop Red Mountain! I was provided tastes of the 2016 Shining Hill, 2014 and 2015 Col Solare Cabernet Sauvignons, and the 2016 Tenuta! As I knew would be the case, every single drop of wine I tasted was simply delicious. On this day, I ended up buying the 2016 Shining Hill and the 2016 Tenuta. Today was more than just another Red Mountain Friday! Cheers!!!
