Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2017

Great Entry Level GSM. Dark and shiny ruby color. Black fruit aromas with hints of some baking spices. Black cherry on the pallet with a hint of almonds. Full bodied but smoothly textured. Remarkably consistent from vintage to vintage. Beautiful elegance and finesse at this price point. — 11 days ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 1978

Deep reddish tawny color, mostly translucent. Floral nose. Notes of red fruit, rose petals, dark soil, smoked meat and blood sausage, and a little anise. Rich and powerful in the mouth. Still has some tannin. Gets bigger with air over the evening. This came across as a somewhat different bottle of juice than the 70 Monprivato next to it - with the 70 being more aged-Barolo like, and the 78 being more of a hearty Cote-Rotie or something. Nevertheless everyone loved this and having the two side-by-side. — 19 days ago

Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2015

Nice wine, good fruit and acidity, very food friendly, low on character points but very serviceable with our Duck and Plums. — 6 days ago

Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 2008

Very good Sangiovese, brooding and elegant. This wine needs to be open at least 1 hour before consuming. Nose of tobacco, palette is leather and tar. Needs to be consumed with steak. — 3 days ago

Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Popped and poured; no formal notes. A little shy upon opening but after 30min of air, this was bangin’! Montmorency cherry, orange peel, black tea, dry dusty earth, spices. Firm structure. Still quite youthful but undeniably delicious. A wonderful accompaniment to pasta, marinara and panzanella. Drinking very well now with a little air and should continue to do so for another 10+ years. — 19 days ago

La Turque Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1998

Plummy, smoky, silky, some leathery smells too. High acidity. Still going very strong and I bet can last another decade — 20 days ago

Anselmo Mendes

Muros Antigos Monção e Melgaço Vinho Verde Alvarinho 2021

When in Portugal drink Anselmo Mendes… from the local mini mart…so savory, tart, & begging for food…a few digestif biscuits & some local goat cheese, this sings. Medium bodied, & so not for the faint of heart. — 4 days ago
