I love learning and sharing all things wine. I travel for beaches, food and the wines that pair with each! To friends and colleagues, I am the go-to Wine Girl...
The 9.0 rating is based upon this wine's perfection in Italian food pairing. Tonight's offering compliments black truffled tomato pesto gemeli to perfection. Tart cherried nose and palate cuts the oil and balances the strength of the truffle. Simbiotically, the sauce bolsters the wine and adds perceived boldness of body. — 8 days ago
Cloved spicy nutmeggy cherries aromas burst over the glass. Leggy and round, juicy and smooth, fruity and bright. Summer's ripe cherries splash the palate. Yes
Pair with semi-soft white cheeses. Think Italian cow's milk fontina or sheep's milk gouda. — 14 days ago
Beautiful ripe red succulent plum and juicy cinnamonned cherry swarm the nose. Taste the forward dancing fruits. Jammy and well-balanced. Definitely a California GSM, indicative of the Temecula heat. Pleasantly sweet without being sweet. — 12 days ago
Bright ripe montmortency cherry perfume seduces the senses interluding to bigger fruit forward palatial explosion. Finishes in plum licorice. Oh, oh! Yes, this big boy pairs with meat. Grilled rib eye that is. And black truffled cheese. — 14 days ago
Popping the cork, the cork gives off dried eucalyptus from Michael's crafts.
Undecanted: Brandied cherry nose, with a plummy eucalyptus, almost mineralic yet cough syrupy climax. Tart cherry essence on the palate.
Decanted: Almost ripened cherry nose, with licorice undertones. Tart cherry with light body and balanced acidity. An enjoyable and embracable wine to be enjoyed prior to serving or with tapas. — 8 days ago
