Have we no wine? WSET 3 with Merit
Richer and riper than previous vintages that I can remember... prune notes are prominent.
Update: so much better the 2nd day. Stewed fruit notes are much more integrated, and the wine is much more enjoyable. This is one to lay down for a couple years. — 2 days ago
Lovely Brunello, especially for Burgundy lovers. This violet-laced, ripe cherry, and sandalwood Brunello will leave you wanting more. With a 1 hour decant, it's ready to go for those who are fine with the high tannins and acidity. Certainly, it can handle 10+ years of cellaring, but it's hard to resist now. Wow. — 23 days ago
Full-bodied, slightly smoky Barolo that is in perfect balance. Silky smooth, with tannins that are integrating well. Dark cherry with dried violets... this is not a feminine Barbaresco (a personal favorite), but is still so so good. Thanks to Austin Wine Merchant for having a 2013 in stock. Wish my wine friends were with me in Austin to enjoy. A monster wine... give this one time. — 22 days ago
Really nice balance of citrus, mineral, and sweetness. This is a dry wine, but for the sugar-averse, there’s a little r/s here. Paired perfectly with our veggie-based stew and handled pork meatballs as well. Easy to drink, low alc. Hard not to love this wine. SommSelect — 24 days ago
