An Xmas gift from a close friend @Bill Bender - thank you so much, Bill.
The nose is bright and boisterous, which oozes red currants and cinnamon. On the palate, this presents just like a contemporary burg. Light on its feet. Soft, round tannins with a lovely interplay of relaxed acid. Finishes with delicacy and elegance.
We are really looking forward to securing a 2019 allocation from the winery. — 20 hours ago
I take back what I said to @Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum about this wine. One dimensional, no structure or acid to talk about. Disappointing to say the least. Avoid this like the plague.
Air is its friend, so I’ve taken up the score a couple of digits. Still a major pass, tho. — 4 days ago
Followed up based on the beach bum waxing about it.
It’s very good. Elegant, exotic nose. Slightly woody notes on the palate. Plush texture, with grainy tannins. Very well done. My only counter to this is that there are many cabs in the $50 category that are just as good. Since I paid $79, I conclude there are better values on the market. — 6 days ago
I’m back at USQ wines on Union Sq.
Great place to come and learn about wine for free...
this Scramsberg is very good. No need to buy French stuff, when the domestic product is so strong.
Delicate, toasty nose. Superfine bubbles which help to lift the texture. Baked bread and biscuits. Finishes with a hint of honey. Strong showing. — 5 days ago
