Grands Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2001

Your nose it greeted by a wave of spicy red fruit and florals. The palate is met by earth, minerals and concentrated but not heavy red fruit. Persistent & great balance.. having so little experience with this wine makes it very hard to give a drinking window. For me it was in a perfect spot. — 12 days ago

Bucket list wine! Cheers.

Castello di Amorosa

Napa Valley Sangiovese 2018

A very pretty color of ruby with a wide reddish/ brownish rim.

Fruity nose with raspberries, cherries, black currants, black plums, light oak, light vanilla, Mediterranean spices, licorice, chocolates, tobacco and herbs.

Medium bodied and smooth, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, green herbs, oak, earth, light vanilla, peppercorn and tobacco leaf.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and cranberries.

This is a very tasty and interesting Sangiovese from Napa Valley. Nicely balanced, tangy and fruit forward. Soft and elegant.

Needs a few hours in the decanter to open up properly, smooth out, and remove some of the acidity. I really enjoyed it after 3 hours.

An interesting expression of Sangiovese. Feels like a blend of old and new worlds.

The high alcohol is very integrated, so watch out.

I had the 2017 before, and it is very consistent.

A good food wine, but good by itself as well. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers. Will pair nicely with red sauce Italian dishes.

A blend of 96% Sangiovese and 4% Merlot. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months (35% new).

14.9% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$39.

Darker fruit profile on the nose than previous vintages with blackberry, black currant, strawberry, dry tree bark, and sage. Taste young and fresh with lovely snappy red cherry. Quite powerful tannins for a Chianti Classical.

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2019

Recommended producer from the geeks. My first time having it, and at my sister’s because I gifted it to her! More fruit forward than I expected but tannins were firm and acidity was clean. — a month ago

Siepi Castello di Fonterutoli Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2013

Intense Super Tuscan, tasting so very Italian. This 50/50 Merlot/Sangiovese blend needs steak, and is an excellent steak accompaniment. — a month ago

Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2011

Casually poured double-blind from a brown bag at the very end of the night while our heads were still spinning from the incredible quality on display. The senses were overloaded. It was blood lust. And then…I smelled my glass. An overwhelming feeling of serenity washed over me. It’s was almost as if a pair of noise-cancelling headphones were placed in my ears. This was different. It commanded attention. This wasn’t a wine from the Rhône. It smelled like Burgundy…and it was special. There was brilliant structure accompanying the most sublime fruits and exotic spices. I looked up at my buddy Matt who was also nosing his glass and our eyes met. He was also spellbound. He then quietly declared to me, “this is DRC”. I thought to myself, surely no. This late? After everything we just had?? Until now, I had never tried DRC so I had no frame of reference but Matt seemed pretty confident. Then some of the others started to fall into the trance. Everyone was falling over themselves. The bottle was pulled from the bag by our host. And there it was. A 2011 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Échézeaux. It was just beautiful. I was different now…almost like losing my virginity. What a sensational nightcap. — 13 days ago
