Default Three gift wines from the office

On Thursday, we had our 'Secret Santa' gift swap at work. I received two Pjnot Noirs.

2015 Josh Cellars PN Central Coast
Light maroon in color with a cherries/oak nose, dark cherry on the palate with a slightly spicy finish. Nice!

2016 Cavit Collection PN Provincia di Pavia
Pale purplish appearance, cherry/raspberry aroma, fairly simple red cherry flavor, slightly "hot". OK, not as good as Josh.

Also, I happened to be around when the boss opened a box from a client containing two Italian wines, one white, one red. I gladly accepted the red. Right place, right time! Ho ho ho!

2011 Vignavecchia Odoardo Beccari Chianti Classico Riserva
medium maroon color, faint cranberry nose, somewhat tannic flavors of plum and cherry. Fairly typical Chianti, would work with food.

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good wine!

Dan-O

Never heard of Josh, sounds good.
Cavit can be rough, but overall sounds like you did ok.
Happy Holidays

This was my first go with Josh as well; very promising and the best of the three "freebies".
