Angelicall Pinot Noir Rosé 2019

Terrific rose of pinot noir from Maggie Harrison of Antica Terra. This is not your garden-variety rose: serious skin contact time coupled with her incredible wine-making abilities has produced a really substantive wine. Reminds me a bit of Manfred’s SQN roses (not surprising, I guess, since Maggie worked with Manfred for I believe a decade or so before striking out on her own with what I think is the best winery in the Willamette Valley). Do yourself a favor and try to snag some of this. Terrific juice. — 10 days ago

I am about as big a fan of this rosé as anyone. Regardless of price, I absolutely love it. I know you also enjoy Andremily (as do I)…have you tried their rosé? It’s bigger and more rich in style, akin to SQN rosés, more so than the Angelicall. But, I believe those three rosés belong in a category all to their own!

@Shay A, I have had thd Andremily (only bought 3 - should have gotten more, because these will age for a couple of years. Check out Paix sur Terre’s rose of mourvedre. Lighter style, but Ryan Pease is growing those mourvedre grapes specifically to make rose.

Antica Masseria Jorche

Riserva Primitivo di Manduria 2016

This dark wine has a fruity nose of blackberry and plum, but there are some more savory notes as well. Black pepper, cigar box and black olive also come through. On the palate, licorice and plums are in the forefront of one of the fruitier flavor profiles I have tasted in Apulian Primitivos. The 16% alcohol is not as overpowering as I imagined it would be. The tannins are fairly forceful and the acidity is refreshing. This wine drinks really well and will pair nicely with a marbled rib eye steak. — 23 days ago

Sémillon Malvasia 2017

Nice golden color. Crisp but lots of honeydew melon on the palate. Finished with lemon zest and citrus. This is lovely stuff. — 16 days ago
