Cantine Due Palme

Buccara

Due del Monte Collio Ribolla Gialla 2018

Deep nose with intense straw scents, ripe yellow orchard fruit, crushed rock. Rich flavors of ripe fruit, crisp acids, and a slightly bitter phenolic edge comes on in the finish. Lots of character. — 23 days ago

Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Tried again! Blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Chardonnay, medium lemon with aromas of white flesh fruit, citrus and floral blossoms. On the palate flavors of ripe apple and citrus with floral spice. Long finish, lively acidity, nice body and texture due to Chardonnay, ending with citrus and mineral notes. Very nice! — 13 days ago

Prestige Collection Pinot Noir 2017

Thought this blind was an aged red burg, so colour me surprised when it was revealed to be a young NZ pinot. Clearly a little more developed than it should be (colour and aromas), but credit where credit’s due, this was quite elegant. Even after the reveal I could not detect that marmalade finish I find so often in NZ pinot’s. This was all red cherries and ripe strawberries, with savoury spices and earthy notes. Perhaps the quality of the oak, which left much to be desired, and rich velvety texture were the only indications of it’s origin. Finished a touch short. There were wines with more intrigue on the table so I didn’t drink much of it, but it definitely wasn’t a bad drop. One to revisit. — 9 days ago

Côtes du Rhône Brézème Syrah 2000

(This is the pre-Pergaud Vielles Vignes) still dark purple color, iodine, saline, dark fruits, fantastic freshness due to the bracing acidity this showed when young, long, lingering finish, I do love Eric’s wines!! — 3 days ago

Hunnicutt

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Outstanding wine, artfully balanced, jammy beginning but there isn’t a trace afterwards; rich intensity. The complexity comes in a “slow mo” kinda way on the palate due the hefty velvety feel but it is there, and the long tannic vanillish finish is, closure. — 12 days ago

Delaplane Cellars

Viognier 2020

Peaches, slate, flowers, and honey. Lively. I think some of the negative reviews are due to drinking this too old. — 8 days ago

Miller-Cyrot

Meursault Chardonnay 2019

Silvery/gold color. Lovely aromas of lemon, coconut, wet stones and cream. Pallet is full of lemon, peach and mandarin orange. Touch of minerality on the finish. Medium bodied. Creamy mouthfeel. Smooth and rich. Beautiful balance due to some nice crisp acidity. — 11 days ago

Skinny Dip California Grenache 2021

Skouras

Peloponnisos Moscofilero 2020

Nose of ripe peaches and red apples. Silky smooth, with lemon and peach. Was expecting a sweetness due to the peach and apple nose, but there was none. Lemony, tart, and steely. This is a first for us and it's quite nice! — a day ago
