Fontanasanta Vigneti delle Dolomiti Manzoni Bianco 2020

Slightly carbonic but delicious. Ripening pineapple, white stone fruit and an unfiltered appearance… My friend Elias Fernandez at Shafer loves this one as well… @Paul T- Huntington Beach @Shay A @Stanley Barrios @Shauna Summers @Jim Trobaugh @Neal Schaffer @Ian Blackburn @Warren Sapp — a year ago

A carbonic white wine?

@Shay A yes just a slight carbonic touch. Not champagne worthy but a little tingle on the palate…

Ah, I thought you meant carbonic via fermentation (as in carbonic maceration). Would have found that quite unique since most whites don’t go through that!

Bovale Utiel-Requena Old Vines Bobal 2019

Nicely made and exuding character. Nose has bright, deep plummy fruit, along with nice, fragrant spice and a wisp of smoke. Mouthfilling, pure fruit on the palate, with a light touch, finish turns savory and shows lots of stony minerality. Nice acids and a bit of soft, chalky tannin comes out at the end. Terrific value. — 2 years ago

Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2014

This says Reserva.
I didn’t know.
But… that’s some Spanish old vine Tempranillo w French barrique aging(24 mo.) hell, you could have left it in there another 24.
N: Really smells like dirt and tobacco. Black plums way back there. A Big, black nose of reined in funk.
P: Tannin city, charcoal, prunes, really begs for protein, skillfully done.
Next time, 2hrs in a decanter.
Thanks @ Garagiste.

Relentless Napa Valley Syrah Petite Sirah 2017

Shafer Winemaker Elias Fernandez & his “relentless” pursuit of quality. A blend of 86% Syrah & 14% Petite Sirah, shows a lush & rich wine. Aged for 30 months, 100% new French oak, deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit & hint of smoke and sweet spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, plum & blueberry with notes of vanilla, cacao and smoke. Fine silky tannins, long finish, great mouthfeel ending with fruit, herbs and spice. One of the best Syrah’s tasted. Aging well! — 8 months ago

Napa Valley Petite Sirah 2012

A project between Doug Shafer and Elias Fernandez. I think I’ve had this for at least five years and have never known the ideal time to open it. I don’t drink much petite sirah, but when TX barbecue is the food on the table, I figured this would work, and it did.

48 months in barrel! Inky in the glass with aromatics of potpurri, fresh squeezed dark berries, mixed berry cobbler, and espresso. Expecting a brash profile on the palate, I was greeted by a rather tame (albeit juicy) style which had great mid-palate depth. Freshly squeezed raspberries, black raspberries, blueberries, red and black currant, hint of peppered rhubarb and dark chocolate. Compared to other PS wines I’ve enjoyed (Switchback Ridge, Vincent Arroyo) this is less chocolate and spice driven, but the juicy and rich mid palate is there in spades. Oak tannin at the finish but not harsh. Paired really well with TX brisket and sauce. Seems to be in a good window now, but PS always seems to me like it can hold for a while, so no rush.

I love PS, but really only ever drink Grgich PS. Not something I have very often either.

I have a few Pets sitting around, waiting for the right food. Sounds like the ideal pairing.
