2007 La Sirena Moscato Azul – USA, California, Napa Valley (3/16/2010)
So the other day I get a phone call from Heidi Barrett. Yes, that Heidi Barrett. Isn’t the superstar winemaker life glamorous? They get to call absent-minded customers. She was calling me because there was a case of wine that I had bought at a tasting in June 2008 that I never picked up. Heidi was especially concerned because in this case were several bottles of her 2007 La Sirena Moscato Azul… a wonderful wine but crafted to be enjoyed in its first year or two. I swung by Revana (where she also makes the wine) and picked it up yesterday. This was the first bottle from that batch. Aromas of peach jump from the glass but the flavors have faded to more of a lychee and lemon juice. It’s not bad, but could have been so much better. Drink them “yesterday.” Not rated because I was a doofus and forgot that I had wine to pick up from La Sirena.
