Don Red Blend 2010

A true Chilean gem. Must decant. A faded red on the eye. After decant, the nose is suple with red berries and leather. The mouthfeel is elegant with soft silky tones of red fruit and light baking spice. Excellent. — 4 days ago

Wow. This is exemplary. Aging gracefully, but still extremely youthful. A gift from our close friends approx. 12 years ago. Shared it with them tonight. Such good times. Blueberry pie notes with hints of cherries and sage. Mid palate tilts towards mint and moderate sweetness. Very relaxed finish. This has years of runway ahead of it - Dover, NJ. — 19 days ago

Bodega El Esteco

Don David Reserve Malbec 2018

Great deal at $10, usually closer to $20. Purple and heavy on the berry taste. A little acidity at the end. Smell like jam + a little oak (read people say leather). Medium bodied. — 20 days ago

Finocchietto Liqueur

Made it to the Don Ciccio & Figli tasting room today to stock up on amari. This finocchietto has always been one of my favorites. Refined aromas and flavors of candy coated fennel seeds. — 5 days ago

Don Miguel Gascón

Reserva Mendoza Malbec 2013

Prune flavors, but dry and round. Spicy/woody on the finish. Unassuming but complexly flavored. Deserves its own attention — don’t smother with food — 8 days ago

Cabernet Franc

Beautiful and unique. Reminds me of a mencia from biezro. -clean medium bodied, good acidity, dark red fruit of wet hickory smoke and distinctive black pepper spice and light roast. Great buy. — 21 days ago

Akatcha Bourgogne Pinot Beurot

Outstanding white Pinot Beurot by Bize (!) skin contact gives it its color. This is the kind of “natural” wine that I like. I’ll skip the hipster wines, thank you. Alice Feiring club selection. — 24 days ago
