Rose and Rosemary nose marry!
Light delicate floral side of Nebbiolo. Pale purple petal notes. Bright acidity. As if a rosey grape adult Jell-O shot melted into your mouth and asked for a date with a caprese salad and pasta pomodoro. That would pair deliciously! — 2 days ago
14.5% ALC, with clinical/distinct WA terroir profile. CF-led @ 44%, Merlot 38%, CS at 9%, Malbec 9%…. Deep, hefty mocha / dark cocao drive this punch in the face. Even at 11yrs old, this brought game! Great on day 1, softens a bit on D2, but then a bit port-y of day 4…which was fine ;) — a day ago
This Washington Cab sits medium dark in the glass and has a fairly closed nose at first. It opens up to black fruit and savory oak - not sweet - after some time. The mouthfeel seems rather thin to me, with gentle tannins. Overall, it comes on more like a Pinot Noir than a Cabernet, but there is enough blackberry and plum to convince me that it’s real. Unexpected, but not completely out in left field. — 13 days ago
Unscrew and pour. Had a bottle of this a few months ago, and forgot to post a note. A very solid rose of PN (made by Alexandrine Roy of Gevrey-Chambertin, but now also OR). On the nose: soft smoke, cramberry. wild strawberry. On the palate: light and lively with excellent acidity and density for the warm weather. Excellent btl, esp for the price. — 19 days ago
Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is medium dark in the glass and smells like dark fruit, somewhat jammy and somewhat oaky, but not in a bad way. The vanilla and clove notes have a trace of smoke and sage peeking through. The palate shows black and blue berries mainly, with a minty herbal edge on the side. The tannins are firm and the finish is medium long. I'll pair this with something off the grill, although I may want to try a chill on it if I have it outside. — 15 days ago
