Mack & Schuhle Inc.

United Ink Oregon Pinot Noir 2019

This Pinot has a medium ruby tint and carries aromas of raspberry, minerals, cola, black tea, clove and a touch of cinnamon. The palate is equally complex, with fruit that wavers between sweet and tart, a savory earthiness and an acidity that refreshes. The tannins were forceful at first, but they calmed themselves after a bit of air. It may be a tad too rowdy to be called elegant, but it is a close call - and a tasty one. — 15 days ago

Bandol Mourvedre Blend Rosé 2020

2020 vintage. Straddles the divide between downright dirty and preciously pretty quite nicely. A little something for all rosé fans. — 7 days ago

Dhroner Riesling 2019

Floral and peachy, with a racy saline palate, but also an appealingly dirty complexity from natural ferments in oak — 17 days ago

Recioto della Valpolicella Classico Superiore Amarone Corvina Blend 1982


Ruby in color with a wide and dirty brick rim.

Showing a wonderful nose with lots of earth notes.

On the palate, sweet cherries, over ripen plums, raisins, dried fruits, chocolates, citrus, tobacco, coffee, peppercorn, earth, black tea, wet leaves and herbs.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Nice tangy finish, yet not very long, with fine grained tannins.

I did not decant it, but let it open up in the bottle. I really liked the nose, after 30 minutes of airtime.

Thank you John for sharing this with me.

Nice to see how this lasted so well, even though it is from a bad vintage.

This 39 year old is not at its peak any longer, but still very drinkable. I believe it was way better 10 years ago. Lucky to have the bottle all for myself, as no one else liked it. 😃

Also, great to see that the alcohol is kind of low (for an Amarone).

Aged for 2 years in wood barrels.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Casta Baga Bruto Espumante

Dirty, dusty red fruit - red currant, raspberry, rose hip, but also a whiff of blood orange with a mineral core underneath, fresh & slightly funky.
Bone dry on the palate, with persistent bubbles, juicy fruit and a slight touch of tannins. The irony, bloody character of Baga shines through.
Unorthodox, delicious stuff. Brilliant with food.
