Umino Vineyard Pinot Noir

Hard to believe I’ve made it to 2023 without writing up the ‘13 Chasseur Umino. But it is still drinking wonderfully, vibrant, light on its feet and full of fruit and spice like the great Burgundy it aspires to be. — 2 months ago

Hermanos Pérez Pascuas

Gran Reserva Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2010

A very limited production Ribera del Duero of 6,990 bottles in a great year @ €180-€265 that should age into a Vega Sicilia quality wine as a very intense big wine 😈 but well balanced 😉 I’d drink in 10-15 years but superb already 😁

📍 Viña Pedrosa Perez Pascuas Gran Selección 2010

🍝 Paired w/ Mrs Es homemade Cumberland peppered & sage pork sausage meat filled ravioli smothered in a chasseur mushroom sauce & Parmesan cheese 😍

🏵 96 points w/ 98+ potential

🍇 Tempranillo

💥 14.5% ABV

🍷 Deep blackened opaque ruby

👃 I had to peel these aromas from my nose as they overpowered it in chocolatey rich dark fruit goo in a porty style of spiced dark cherry, earthy dark plum, melted chocolate, herbs & smoke w/ raspberry liquorice, minerals, date compote, prune pie & soft oak

👄 Full bodied rich ripe smooth ultra silky gooey creamy melted black cherry & chocolate w/ raspberry, liquorice & cherry liqueur

🎯 Long Long Long (like never ending!) lingering dark cherry explosive punch in the teeth oozing through raspberry chocolate liquorice gloop
