This lady is fading a bit and a definite Drink Up is strongly recommended. That said, wet straw (perhaps all in the mind) and ripened peaches still make for a pleasurable aperitif. As a pairing, serve it with a light asparagus salad w/citrus champagne vinegar. I did. Absolutely worked. — 10 days ago
A dusty beginning of tight fruit—with perfect acidity and complimentary measured tannins—that finally reveals a lovely dried cherry gulp of solid juice. Pretty damn perfect with a potato/black olive/thyme homemade pizza. Even better with the follow up: mushroom/prosciutto. — a month ago
Pretty damn tasty and a surprisingly good pairing with South Carolina BBQ pork ribs and potato salad. The Cab S definitely asserts itself, but the Sangiovese lays down a terrific backbone of cedar and spice and gives the wine its youthful zip. No idea where the Cab F plays. Color? Would love to give it a 9 but that would be a bridge too far. Happy 4th Everyone. 🇺🇸 — a month ago
I’m a big fan of the Peyrassol rosé lineup....from their introductory La Croix thru to their top Chateau. Their ‘18s were fabulous. This intro ‘19 is just OK, however, so hopefully the Cuvée de la Commanderie will bring a bigger smile.
(If my memory serves me well the fruit for La Croix is sourced from farmers outside Peyrassol proper.) — a month ago
