Absolutely delectable- Medium bodied Cabernet 2015. Turns out that the French call such a person whom drinks this wine - 'Le Flaneur' One who strolls. This one most certainly is what you should drink before strutting down the cobblestone streets of Paris- Or dreaming of the next time you do ☺🍷 Heaven in a bottle . — 4 years ago

Tall Tales Syrah, its utterly unique "funk" from the deep, cobblestone soil of the Rocks at Milton-Freewater, shines so bright with savory food. Its earth and mineral qualities, contrasted beautifully by plum and currant, with a hint of black pepper, really give just the right oomph to make this wine the perfect partner for a meal (in my case, pesto soup, with a side of heavily herbed garlic-cauliflower) — 4 years ago
Excellent second label from Château Fonplegade! Earthly, plum, spice, with licorice, coffee, tea, and tobacco notes.... I love how this wine is intense but still fairly elegant. The tannins are perfect enough to still be velvety on the palate while still delivering a nice long finish. This is the wine that brings me back to St. Emilion walking the cobblestone streets and the magnificent view from Château du Roy. Oh how I miss France...... Santè! — 2 years ago
Imagine. Bumping down a cobblestone street on a wrought iron bicycle. Thump, thump...thump.
Thrill seekers of the past called this kind of ride a Boneshaker. Your teeth rattled & your bones shook. You felt it.

From my town, Cortona, in Italy, at the winery where I help out. One of my all time fav's! Lovely fresh blackberry and black pepper notes with incredible minerality that smells/tastes like cobblestone streets after a summer rain. Organic. This year I think I helped pick. — 5 years ago
