A Toi Nous Shiraz Grenache Blend 2019

A little cloudy, red with a tint of pink in colour. Violet, crushed raspberries, and a bit of green fig on the nose. Fresh tannins, tight, good mouth feel. A small bit of reduction, natural but nothing crazy. A lot of fresh blackberries on the forefront, finishing on candied figs, hints of laurel, and a bit of spice. — 17 days ago

Salem Wine Co.

Eola - Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2014

Ripe tree red fruits on the nose, cranberry and red cherries, and a little earthiness (Earl Grey Tea per Andrea). Light on the palate with tart cranberry acid, strawberry fruitiness, and good acid with some lingering earthy tannin. Fruitier than expected for Oregon, and would make an awesome Thanksgiving wine. Paired amazingly with salmon over a mushroom risotto. — 11 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Classic garnet with light violet tinges and a wide rim. If you’ve ever tasted a Barolo or standard Nebbiolo, then you can close your eyes and almost describe this bottle perfectly. A soft, almost subdued nose featuring the resiquite dried cherries and new leather. Mushrooms, licorice, and plums compliment. Spice and dark chocolate also show.

Budget Barolo! You never quite know what you’re going to get. I’ve certainly had my share of duds but this is good stuff. It lacks the complexity and refinement of others but it does provide all the fun characteristics you’re expecting. Silky smooth and velvet on the tongue. Even at this youthful stage it’s highly approachable and playful. Medium weight and acidity, with firm tannins.

After plenty of air, the palate opens up and expresses itself with black olives, leather, and more cherries. Faded roses, oak, dark chocolate, and just the barest hint of toasted walnuts. A fun lil Barolo and worth the time.

Maybe a little heavy handed as far as extraction and ABV


Sounds like a good dinner wine. Fun description!🍷

Clear garnet. Nose of black cherry and roses. Medium light, fruity palate of black cherry, violets, and a hint of anise. Medium plus acidity. Medium minus tannins. Hey, it’s a solid Sangiovese that’ll go great with Italian-American fare or medium cheeses. Drink now. — a month ago
