Mid-weight IPO with bright notes. Very easy drinking and quite satisfying. Enjoyed at the beer/burger bar at the new Whole Foods 365 store in Concord, CA, which uses Delectable's innovative in store product that helps customers choose the perfect wine/beer/spirits. — 9 days ago
In today's Oasis of fine wine, this 1994 was Definitely Maybe a Rock 'n' Roll Star that was clearly made by a Shakermaker to Live Forever. Whether Up in the Sky or in Columbia, people will recognize this as a Supersonic wine, particularly for the otherwise difficult vintage where the rains did indeed Bring It on Down, driving winemakers to Cigarettes & Alcohol. The soft tannins would make for flexible pairing choices for Digsy's Dinner; this Mouton Rothschild could be Married with Children's chicken nuggets and be just great. — 10 days ago
Seventy years have passed since this wine was made. It is hard to imagine how the winemakers of the day could have focused on things like pump-overs when their country had just been through hell and back. But I'm glad they could and did because this wine is delicious. Shadows of red fruit upon layers of black tea, vanilla and pine. This was a very rare treat indeed. — 10 days ago
Orange peel and tar, this is light to midweight Brunello is quite satisfying to drink now. Needed a short while to open up to be tasty, if uncomplicated, and perfectly acceptable for a low key night in. The 2010 vintage is so good for Brunello. This wine probably speaks to the fact that any bottle from that year will be perfectly acceptable. — 8 days ago
