Fiddlestix Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012


This 2012 is delicious it has a lot of dark red fruit and dark black fruit that’s with cherries so silky tannins and it’s just lovely to drink once it opens up there’s a little bit more tar and a little more mushrooms so I’d recommend if you have a 2012 vintage and your seller drink now or forever hold your peace — 18 hours ago

Quilceda Creek

Washington Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

1 hour decant (decent chunky/fine sediment). A forbidding still inky dark purplish garnet color. On the nose: Beautiful perfumed notes of dark plum, cedar, vanilla, pine, and herbs. Taste: smooth, rich wine with mouth coating silky tannins, black cherry, black pepper, little dark chocolate, smoke, and a blueberry cedar semi dry finish....slight touch of heat on the end?...a RP 100 pt wine tonight. Cheers! — 17 days ago

E. Fuligni (Cottimelli)

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. — 8 days ago

Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 1970

Deep reddish tawny, a bit lighter and more translucent than the 78 Monprivato next to it. Aromatic, aged-Barolo type nose. Notes of red and black fruit, roses, tea, a little soy sauce and some wood. Silky in the mouth. Coats the palate. Still has some pucker. Really liked this. — 8 days ago

Château d'Aiguilhe Querre

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

Wow. Intensely fruity on the nose. Raspberry coulis. Then on the palate more intense raspberry, pomegranate, cranberry, black currant, plum.. A little coffee at the end. Medium bodied, I think. Gentle tannins. Great depth, balance. Superb. And I think this was less than $30. Best part of my day right here. — 3 days ago


La Cabane des Pissottes Coteaux Champenois Pinot Meunier 2020

Pinot-Meunier grape variety. More concentrated dress than expected. Fine nose, interesting, on vegetal notes, peppery, blackcurrant-griotte. In the mouth the acidity is marked, the fruit is respected. We are on a northern red wine with very fine but salivating tannins. An alternative to Pinot-Black or gamay.

Cépage Pinot-Meunier. Robe plus concentrée que prévu (vieilles vignes?). Nez fin, intéressant, sur des notes végétales, poivrées, cassis-pomme-framboise. En bouche l’acidité est marquée, le fruit est respecté. On est sur un vin rouge septentrional avec des tanins très fins, mais salivant. Une alternative aux Pinot-Noir ou gamay.

Bodegas Ego

Goru Gold Monastrell Blend 2017

Nose: plums, black cherry, baking spices. Fragrant tree sap. A little Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit? Is that clove? The Juicy Fruit image is sticking.

Taste: dark cherry, spice, a dash of tobacco and black-tea-like tannins. Not my preferred varietals, but silky and well made. A surprise. 88-89. I’ll go 89.

Domaine de la Colline

Chinon Cabernet Franc 2019

Dark ruby color. Aromas of earth, Forrest Floor, violets, rose hips and dried herbs. Pallet is full of black fruit with a hint of leather. Little, if any, pyrazine is present. No oak. (Completely aged in Stainless Steel.) Juicy texture. This wine has a memorable rustic quality. Thanks for the gift, Kase. — 20 hours ago
