Nielson Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

This is a new one to me… 2 hour decant left me happy as this wine has a smooth and silky texture with ripe cherry and Asian spice notes. — 24 days ago

Tenuta Tignanello Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

A gorgeous light wine ….

After it’s set free & allowed to Breathe ( one / one in a half hours ) & slightly chilled .
A must on our table with a Aglio pasta , crispy parmesan bake & steamed gorgeous seafood …. A great red with seafood & pasta for us …

We love to have it with just some Fresh Figs , goat cheese & cherries / dark chocolate bites on Crisp Melba toast

Domaine La Garrigue

Vacqueyras 2014

Elegant and complex yet farmy and simply delicious. Makes me want to eat triangles of melted goat Brie and celebrate under umbrellas of red rains of GSM. A wine to celebrate at this afford. Purchased at $15, half price. Seriously?? Tell me how it feels to be grape-raped. — 4 years ago

Anselmo Mendes

Muros Antigos Monção e Melgaço Vinho Verde Alvarinho 2021

When in Portugal drink Anselmo Mendes… from the local mini mart…so savory, tart, & begging for food…a few digestif biscuits & some local goat cheese, this sings. Medium bodied, & so not for the faint of heart. — 2 days ago

Conti Capponi

Villa Calcinaia Chianti Classico Sangiovese

Excellent all the way around...aroma, tannins, earthy but not heavy. Notes of tobacco and cherry. Excellent with aged cheddar and goat cheese. — 2 years ago

Domaine de Saint-Just

Coulée de St-Cyr Saumur Chenin Blanc 2012

Limes, minerals, butterscotch, goat cheese, some oak in the distance. Despite its age (10 yrs) this thing still has rocking acidity. Citrus fruit, minerals and a touch of oak and ML.

So good. I wish I had more.

Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore Corvina Blend 2016

Maybe the best of the Pasqua family. Ripasso does not make it light. Went down well with a variety of goat cheeses. — 2 years ago

Big Basin Vineyards

Homestead Block Roussanne 2015

Clear, light lemon yellow

Clean, medium intense notes of white floral, stones, clay, lemon, beeswax. Soft and pretty nose.

Dry, medium acid body and alcohol (13.2% ABV). Flavors of lemon, mild apricot, mineral. Finish is a medium+

Very good, and would love to revisit this vintage in the future. Brie & apricot pizza.

Would be interested to see a Roussanne+Marsanne collaboration with Donkey & Goat (Skin Fermented Marsanne)

NOTES: “Most of the wine was fermented and aged in a clay Amphorae with the remainder in barrel.”
