The name says it all with this one. She was the life of the party. Prepare to “oo” and “ah” as she sparkles in your glass.

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Honoring my marvelous father with a meal and wine he would have appreciated with gusto.  We wish he was here to share it with us, but are deeply grateful that his spiritual presence remains so strong in our hearts today and every day.  💕

This blend is predominantly (78%) Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot.  🍷 It hails from the Haut-Médoc region on the “left bank” of Bordeaux, 🇫🇷 more specifically, the Pauillac AOC.  Pauillac is a highly-regarded commune, with favorable growing conditions, known for producing some outstanding quality wines.  👌👌 This wine is no exception. 😆

🏰 Château Grad-Puy-Lacoste is a cru classé, ranked among, and a neighbor to, the region’s top estates.  It’s incredible to think the first vines planted on this property date back to the 1500s, making it one of the oldest properties in the region.

We decanted this wine for several hours, which helped it soften and release its layered aromatics.  

👁 The color is deep garnet with notable tearing.

👃 On the nose it has medium(+) intensity and concentration of developing aromas.  The aromas include ripe black fruit such as cassis, black cherry, blackberry, and plum, as well as other non-fruit notes like black licorice, pencil shavings, and violet. It has secondary notes of clove, nutmeg, allspice, cedar, also tertiary notes of wet earth, tobacco, leather, meat, fig, and mushroom.

👄 This wine is dry and its flavors on the palate are consistent with the nose.
This wine has balance, complexity, a strong structure, with firm, grippy tannins, and a long elegant finish.  👏👏

My father (a man of very humble beginnings) suggested to me that if you need to ask how much it costs you probably can’t afford it. Thank heavens I can. Absolutely terrific commune effort. — a month ago

Premières Côtes de Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

1986 vintage. Château Loumède, Premières Côtes de Blaye. What a nice surprise! Merlot Noir 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 35% et Côt Rouge (Malbec) in the commune of Sainte-Luce. Opens up nicely after an hour with delicate aromas of tobacco and leather. A fresh and elegant light-weight with good length. A pleasure to drink. Abv. 12,5%. — 6 months ago

del Comune di Monforte d'Alba (Barolo) Nebbiolo 2017

Delectable Wine

The 2017 Barolo del Commune di Monforte d’Alba is a gorgeous, beguiling wine. Readers will find a Barolo that expresses all of the balsamic, spiced character typical of Ginestra Barolos but without the heft that can make some wines forbidding. Transparent, gracious and super-expressive, Conterno's 2017 is all class. Don't miss it. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2021)

Ca' La Bionda

Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2020

Opens on the nose with the smell of lees, underneath are early summer red 🍒 and a touch of balsamic and a touch of wood- maybe slovanian oak?
Tart, nice balance, refreshing and very drinkable. I was nervous to order it because it was listed under the 'Natural' wine selection but turns out that it's only organic and not bottle of kombucha. Excited to see that I might be able to find this for under $25.
Paid $54 at Commune in Columbus.

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1995

Popped and poured; consumed over two days. My second time enjoying the 1995 Gran Reserva (the most recent release from LdH). The wine pours garnet with a translucent core accompanied by some fine sediment and a slightly watery rim. Medium viscosity. On the nose, high intensity and seems to have some VA. There’s also a little bit of the funk too. Highly perfumed with cherry, red rope licorice, balsamic, cumin, horse saddle, dill, and iron rich earth. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium tannin and medium++ acid. Tart cherries and again with the red rope licorice. Also, there are blackberries and plums, buzz buttons, iron, tomato, leather, olives and exotic spices. Long, savory finish. Despite being 26 years from vintage, the wine comes across super bright and fresh. Just lovely. — 7 months ago

Barolo del Commune di Monforte d'Alba Nebbiolo 2017

Lyle Fass

Ahhhh yes. Such a graceful pretty expression of Barolo. Chambolle like. Nose is all roses, florals, hint of tar and glorious mid season cherries. Wild mint and even tarragon. So complex and graceful. Just gorgeous, nimble and refined. Palate is sappy, delicate, energetic and graceful. Sappy and so dense but a light dense. Packed with cherry and spice. Also that wild mint. Ripe and velvety tannins. Needs some air but it is all there. Nose gets really detailed and deep with air. Gorgeous texture and purity. Really present and grippy fruit. This seems like it needs a few hours and a few years. Long finish. Will see what happens in an hot or two. Solid 9.3 now. — 9 months ago
