From Busboy to Washer

Stumbled upon an interesting experiment while perusing my wine notes.

During the past two months, I twice tasted and rated the 2011 Tsalapatis Rigena Xynisteri, a silver medal winner at the 7th Cyprus Wine Competition. To my surprise as a nobody who's better suited to be a busboy in a Tex-Mex eatery, my descriptions and final marks weren't that off given the month separating each tasting and the different environs. You people are in deep doo-doo once I receive my Le Nez du Vin Master Kit. It's on its way to The Rock from France and I guarantee it'll promote me from busboy to spit bucket washer.

Notes for March 17th, 2012 at Cava Inon Pnevmata

Bouquet of white flowers (jasmine), peaches, citrus and white pepper. Fuller than usual for a Xynisteri with notes of pineapple, honeydew and floral components. Good length. Tasted with cheese, cold cuts and bread. 89/100. 

Notes for April 14th, 2012 during dinner on Easter Saturday

Nice bouquet of white flowers, pineapple, citrus and hints of kiwi. Touch of tropical fruits and citrus, honeycomb towards the mid-palate. Tangy finish. Tasted with avgolemono soup and a lamb's head. 87/100.
