Verruzzo di Monteverro Red Blend 2017

ESF
9.0

Solid lil Super Tuscan: inky dark dense, thick w/dark berry fruit, liqueur like expression, cassis, forest floor, initially funky but it blew off to a more focused polished Left Bank offering. Well knit, seamless thru finish — 10 days ago

Witches Brew Red Blend

A pleasantly sweet, yummy lil crowd pleaser. Grape varietals are unlisted but you can tell they used good ones under the tasteful proportion of mulling spices. Will certainly order more for the next autumn season! — a month ago

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rosé Blend 2018

Happy V-Day to all the Delectable homies. Lil fancy pink stuff to ring in the evening. Thought I might age this a few years just to see what happens but sometimes you gotta pull that cork. There was some sediment! Just tasting like the South of France in a glass. Cheers! — 18 days ago

Macerado Edicion Limitada Rioja Viura 2018

100% Viura, 6 months skin contact.

Absolutely LOVE this wine!!
Viura fans only please, find it, drink it, love it, buy a lil more & stash it. Waxed. Specialz.

If I had another bottled, and chilled.... it would be a special night.

For me, this wine is possibly equated to a Burg-hounds iodine marinated fossilized crustacean shell infused Kimmeridgian fruit forward Chablis (love my Burgundy Blanc’s too)... or something.

More Vintages, Please!

Paired with hickory smoked Salmon.

Note-wise, Ill say it has great fruit, golden, iron-like note, along with a ?peppercorn skin essence? (Essence mixed peppercorn, olfactory, not bitten into), hint of apricot... texture changes with temp (more tannic and rough when cold, smooth round fruit when warmer). Pure enjoyment. Possible almond shell note with age.

Does not state exactly, the length of skin contact. Harvest - bottling on. March 2, 2019. Approx 5-6months (Sept-March). 13% ABV

@Rhonely Boy I’ve gotta hunt this down. Sounds awesome.

I love the varietal Viura/Macabeo, most perceive it as nuetral, and have to admit that its not the most upfront showy varietal. Its a varietal that lights up my sensors though.

Its a fantastic varietal example.

Viura resists oxidation, and can age. Fruity and wonderful now, skin contact adds complexity and tannin. Excited to see how this ages, as I picked up a few extra bottles.

Lil Opal Farmhouse Ale 2016

Bottled 5/9/2016, Batch No. 002. No grapes in this brett’d saison, but the long aging in 70% French and 30% American oak results in big vinous character. — a month ago
