Il Carbonaione Alta Valle della Greve IGT Sangiovese 2012

Sangiovese with some heft. Medium ruby color with garnet highlights. Complex aromas of bramble, cooked plums, ripe berries and vanilla cola. The lush pallet features blackberry jam, black licorice and baking spices. Nice oaky (long and lingering) finish that’s in beautiful harmony. Full bodied but with soft and silky tannins. Well constructed. — 4 days ago

Gran Reserva 904 Rioja Tempranillo Graciano

This is an moment to remember, because we don’t often drink two bottles during dinner 🤣 but this high altitude Rioja is a very fine and elegant example of the true purity from the Tempranillo grape. Love it! — 5 days ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2002

45 min decant(decent chunky/fine sediment). A remarkable medium garnet color with bricking. On the nose: beautiful perfumed notes burst from the glass with sour cherry, mint, dusty earth, currants, wet cedar, green bell pepper....could sniff all night! Taste: soft and round, smooth, elegant wine with raspberry, cedar, currants, musky earth, and a nice dark chocolate cherry finish. YUM! A wine that has hit its stride over the past few years with time to go. — 4 days ago

Rhys Vineyards

Alpine Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Scarlet color, almost opaque. Fruity, stemmy nose. Notes of dark fruit, bing cherries, moist soil, herbs and spice. Vibrant in the mouth. Silky sweet fruit but not over the top. Nice balance and structure. Really good. If i was tasting this blind I could see someone steering me towards a young Dujac guess. — 5 days ago
