Reserve Series Vin de France 2020

Yeah I know Peeps a wine from Walmart. I did read a review that this one was pretty decent; allowed a bottle to follow..along with the kitty food! 🐈 I am humbled to report..this is good! Nice medium bodied, melon, tangerine, strawberry, lime and minerals. Bottle does not indicate but does remind me of a Provence Rosé. @Sharon B you would like this! Nice with a few years on this Not Tempier..under $10!
My son in Indy sent a pic of his gas purchase...I want to send him a sympathy card! 🙄

@Dawn E. I’ll have to look for it if you’re recommending it! Gas is ridiculous! 😡

@Dawn E. If you can save some money 💰, why not? Sounds like a good wine. 🍷 Agreed the fuel cost is astronomical!

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2010

Superbe Pinot de CA au style Bourguignon, belle surprise en suivant tous ces beaux Bourgognes, du fruit à revendre, ne faisait pas son age.

Very nice Pinot from CA, has a Burgundy feel and texture to it, lots of fruit, well balanced, not even showing his age, very classy. 91-92

La Sagesse du Jesune Homme Gamay Noir 2014

A solid Beaujolais-Village, bearing the stigma of the beautiful Beaujolais wines. Tiled ruby color, of a certain concentration. Superb open nose, between candied red fruits (cherry, strawberry), dried floral bouquet (Pink, peony, iris), white pepper, and notes of aerial evolution tending towards truffle, medley, nail polish. Close to a Burgundy in more airy and more floral. Fine and final body on vivacity. Beautiful nobility, superb for its price. Drink a little refreshed.

Un Beaujolais-Village solide, portant les stigmates des beaux crus du Beaujolais.
Robe rubis tuilée, d’une concentration certaine. Superbe nez ouvert, entre fruits rouges confiturés (cerise, fraise), bouquet floral séché (Rose, pivoine, iris), poivre blanc, et notes d’évolution aérienne tendant vers la truffe, pot-pourri, vernis à ongle. Proche d’un Bourgogne en plus aérien et plus floral. Corps fin et finale sur la vivacité. Belle noblesse, superbe pour son prix. À boire un peu rafraîchi.

So Delicious! Blackberries, blueberries,cherry liquor, black licorice, eucalyptus. Graphite, vanilla, earth, great long finish! I opened this early, it could benefit from a few more years! I have justification for opening this! I just found out that my son proposed, officially engaged! — 11 days ago

Provvido Terre Siciliane Rosso Nero d'Avola 2017

Bought a 3 pack on the assumption would try some medium age cellaring. At 5yrs young now, still a colt & has much youthful bright purple & black fruits to offer, almost frizzante like it went through carbonic maceration (No idea if it did). Would pair well with similarly vibrant food. Son of well known iconic Umbrian producer. — a month ago
