April 2013 Recap

wine win

The weather was changing and the wine was flowing here at Grapestorm this April. We rated 7 bottles but enjoyed and discussed a whole lot more. The highlight of the month was a fantastic trip down to NJ to visit Aunt and UncleGrape. With the warm weather we’re getting back to grilling so expect to see more Cabernet and fun summer wines in the coming months.

Grapestorm Highest Rated Wine of April 2013:

1999 Martinetti Barbera d’Asti Montruc – 96

Honorable mention to the 1989 Parusso Bussia Barolo that UncleGrape opened on our trip. It was absolutely outstanding and easily the best Barolo we’ve ever had.
