Cartoixa Priorat Red Blend 2016

My first Priorat ever! Ripe black fruits, spice and floral notes. Dark chocolate, smoked wood and forest floor on the nose and palate. Is it wrong to say it’s like a Spanish Chateauneuf du Pape? This is a great wine and wish I had more than one bottle! — 10 days ago

Turriga Isola dei Nuraghi Red Blend 2016

Okay folks!!!! Here it is. Finally a wine that makes me go WOW!! 2016 Argiolas Turriga isola dei nuraghi blend. Italy has proven to me that they have skills! Of course, I’ve always known this. I’ve never found a great Italian wine that I have loved until now. This wine has something so different about it from the beginning. The bouquet I am having trouble defining, but I think it’s Passionfruit and licorice. The palate is immediately exploded with dark cherry, elderberry, and leather..  The earth tones are fantastic. Absolutely no bitter taste at all. Buttery on the texture. Mild spice. Graphite. Fantastic buttery and velvety finish. Very dry. This wine is almost 4 dimensional. OMG, give me more!!!!!! — 6 days ago

Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2018

This guy opened right up with notes of lime, wet sidewalk, and hints of tarragon amidst a golden hue. The palate is full of ripe pear and lemon and it moves into a a salty, rich finish. — 24 days ago

Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi Carignane 2019

Carignan based red blend (also has small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc). Deep ruby in color. Intense black fruit aromas and flavors. Notes of fresh herbs, purple flowers and Forrest Floor. Touch of saline on the finish. Full bodied with a velvety texture. Nicely balanced acidity and medium tannins. Beautifully rustic! Thanks for bringing this one, Petey! — 11 days ago
