Elegant if a bit more fruity tooty than most Nebbiolo, but perfectly in balance and pleasant. Gives the impression of red fruit that is slight dried, slightly sour, slightly sweet. Fun wine that I think is clearly at its peak. — 18 days ago
I think my first Monte Bello and it does not disappoint. A very charming wine with an intriguing tomato component backed up by tons of cassis - "classic" California Cab. Great structure and for me in its prime right now (from half bottle). — 4 months ago
As usual this Olga Raffael Chinon does not disappoint. It has just a bit of charming brett-y funk, and really pretty sour red fruit and tomato character that is just barely on the correct side of the ripe vs unripe fulcrum. — 18 days ago
Holy crap this is good. This was an old @Gary Vaynerchuk Wine Library TV pick-up that's been in the cellar awhile. Patience was rewarded - a world class Bordeaux blend with luscious fruit, impeccable balance and intriguing hints of herbs and earth. — 4 months ago
