Clos Canarelli

Corse Figari Red Blend 2015

Classic Corsican - in the best way. Soft aromas. Dark berries, a little bit of cedar, minerals. There’s a little bit of texture too, a little bit of tannin, and all those same aromas flow right on through to the mouth.

Hardly showy, hardly a complaint.

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia Bolgheri Rosso Merlot Blend 2018

3rd of 4 wines with Marc Vetri as guest chef at Tavernetta. For a young wine, this was very approachable and an excellent match with milk braised lamb neck and grilled lamb chops with polenta. #tavernetta — 2 months ago

Daumas Gassac

Haute Vallee du Gassac Red Blend 2018

Fascinating red blend produced by Mas de Daumas Gassac coming from the St Guilhem-le-Désert – Cité d'Aniane IGP in the Languedoc region of Southern France. 🇫🇷

Mas de Daumas Gassac is known for its unique red glacial soils that are well-draining and rich in mineral oxides (iron, copper, etc.), helping to nourish but also stress (in a good way!) the approx. 42-year-old vines, which can enhance concentration of fruit character. It is also known for its philosophy of respecting the land it farms and honoring the ecosystem of the Gassac Valley. 🌳

When I say fascinating blend, I mean, look at the list of varieties comprising this wine, based upon the winemaker’s tech sheet:
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Pinot Noir, 2% Malbec, and 4% rare grape varieties, including: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Montepulciano (Italy), Armigne (Switzerland), Arenie, Areni Noir (Armenia), Bastardo, Souzon (Portugal), Saperavie (Russia), Tchkaveri, Tchekavesi (Georgia), Brancalleo (Galicia), Carmenere, Abouriou (old French grape varieties) and Plavac Mali (Croatia). 🍇🍇🍇

👀This wine has a medium purple hue and noteworthy staining and tearing on the glass.

👃On the nose, it has youthful and robust, primary notes of ripe black fruit, such as black cherry, plum, blackberry bramble, also anise, violet, dried lavender, licorice,
pipe tobacco, also secondary notes of dark chocolate, nutmeg, and cedar. The intensity is medium(+).

👄On the palate, this wine is dry. It has medium(+) acidity, a full body, high alcohol (14.1%), and medium(+) tannins that are supple but very present. The intensity of flavors is medium(+) and more tart than ripe, but otherwise consistent with the nose. The finish is medium(+).

👏👏👏 This wine is delicious and could age for many more years, but even in its youth, it’s delightful, complex, and full of intense dark fruit character.

@Severn Goodwin Great tips!! I feel ashamed to be drinking this so young, given its potential, but it’s still so deliciously fruity and lovely. I will definitely buy more to hold onto.

Don't be ashamed, it's a great bottle out of the gate and after many, many laps!

10+ years old and still plenty of life. @Steve Unwin said it best “it’s like Riesling and Chardonnay had a one night stand and Chard never returned the phone calls.” — 2 months ago
