[The Original Ungrafted] Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Immediately, black pepper on the nose. Cherry and raspberry follow. Good color, medium tannin, fruit forward and good for a Wednesday night dinner. — 10 days ago

Sandlands

Lodi Chenin Blanc 2020

Popped and poured; no formal notes. Deep straw color. Lemon, Brazil nut, white flowers. Wooly. Great acid. Lovely. Might be the best Lodi Chenin from Sandlands yet. — 6 days ago

Carmenere 2019

Wily and coy, leading me down a dusk-lit walkway of cobblestones and cascading ivy, whispering and beckoning through the shadows to a well hidden speakeasy entrance where it knows the doorperson. Must let it open for some minutes before tasting, let the demons out and then the softness reveals itself….

Los Vascos Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

Don’t hate the rating…. Hate the reality… A wonderful example of a winemaker who threw out price and built a wine that made it 25 years. Herbaceous and medium bodied… — 6 days ago

Bicicleta Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Ming L
8.9

No one wanted to open this bottle at a function, so I took it home. We don’t want to waste anything, let alone a bottle of wine.
Nose has nice complexity, with blackberry, red cherry, fig, black pepper, and subtle green note that’s the signature of Chilean cab.
Medium body, juicy and quite eloquent.
Very pleasantly surprised.

"Love You Bunches" Carbonic Sangiovese 2021

From my gal (whose palate is much better than mine but thinks tracking wine is too much work): Chilled and perfect. Dusky, ruby plum colour. Smells like sweet Alberta wild rose, cranberries, sour cherry, pie spice and a damp evening. Tastes like tart cherry, bell peppers and cola bottle candies. The chilledness walks a fine line between bright acidity and subtle tannins at the end. — 20 hours ago

Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2020

The nose is really superb, between bright notes of fruit (citrus fruits, apricot stones), barrel notes. Lively mouth, beautiful minerality, gunstone, notes of onion, poultry. Balanced, well-built body. Superb finish also, bringing together the tasting bouquet. Nice pleasure!

Le nez est vraiment superbe, entre notes vives de fruits (agrumes, noyaux d’abricot), notes de fût. Bouche vive, belle minéralité, pierre à fusil, des notes d’oignon, volaille. Corp équilibré, bien construit. Finale superbe également, réunissant le bouquet de dégustation. Beau plaisir!
