This thing backs a punch! Full bodied, peppery bit with a fruity finish. Love me some Cali Syrah! — 4 days ago

Cousiño-Macul

Gris Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé

Tengo un amigo chileno (vivió con su familia muchos años en Lima), siempre me trae un vino y rebusca mi bar por un Pisco para llevarse, esta vez trajo este rosé con algo de dulzor, muy bueno para acompañar quesos o con un tartare de atún queda perfecto. Vista: rosado pálido Nariz: aromas frescos, fresas, mandarina, notas de damasco y jazmín. Boca ligero dulzor, se confirma los aromas de boca, persistencia media-alta. Temp de servicio 12 a 15° C Saludos #winelover #pisco #Lima #Peru

El Principal (Valette Fontaine)

Memorias Red Blend 2015

Vino color rubí con cuerpo denso y clarificado. Notas de amaderadas, frutos rojos, zarzamora, vainilla, canela. Vino muy bien balanceado, con astringencia y acidez media.
Este vino tiene una alta retención y sin duda cada sorbo invita al siguiente.

Recomendable al 100.

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1986

Was never too impressed by Santa Barbara Cab, but then there was this. Definitely has a prominent herbal component that won’t be for everyone, but it is well balanced with fruit and tertiary character. Tannins fully resolved leaving a silky and complex wine at peak. — 4 years ago

Core

Elevation Sensation Alta Mesa Red Rhone Blend 2008

Deep ruby-purple with jammy blueberry, black cherry, cassis, olive, and bacon with lilac, raisin, herbs and granite. Medium bodied with oodles of ripe fruit and meaty layers. Firm, plush and pleasantly chewy tannins and a wonderful juicy acidity. The finish is long with a nice interplay of savory nuances and lush dense fruit. — 2 years ago

Syrah 2011

Pity Mesa Grill closed. Tantara sent this private label East and am enjoying last drop. 2011: inky purple, garnet rim. Big meaty spicy black fruit nose. Blackberry flavor high acid plenty of tannin. Age-able for any smart enough to have stashed some. Alas, not this greedy guts🍷Cheers! — 5 years ago
