Cannonball Red Blend 2021

2021. From the D&G website “The base is Testa Carignane (62%) and Rava Grüner Veltliner (21%) and the spice is a mix of Fenaughty Grenache Blanc (6%) & Vermentino (6%) and Cloud Chardonnay (5%).”
Their tasting notes are spot on, especially the fruit rollup 😄
“Delightful tart notes of Bing cherry, cranberry and red raspberry spill forward on the palette along with the zing of chewy fruit-rollups. Deeper in, a flinty, volcanic minerality balances and grounds this high-energy wine, while a creamy mouthfeel completes the enchantment.”

Domaine Terres Georges Racine Carignane 2019

Excellent, had the 2018 and 2019 is it’s equal. Had it with rump steak, but still think it’s more suited to duck or lamb. — 17 days ago

Rioja Mazuelo de la Quinta Cruz 2018

12. 5% transparent Ruby. Nose of candied orange peel and bitter cherry. Comes off a little ripe at first, but keep it down at cellar temp with some air and this is real nice. Earthy. Like if Burgundy had a Carignane baby. Bojo-esque. — 9 days ago
