Lot #55 Sauzal Vineyard Carignan Field Blend 2014

Rustic in a very good way. Nose has crunchy red berries, juniper, stony gravel, and a teeny bit of leather. Forceful flavors buoyed by forceful acids, pure, zingy, cherry fruit and a chalky minerality. Some relatively soft tannin. Not an erudite, pinky-extended sipper, but a great wine for pasta night. — 20 days ago

Tasted through the entire line up at Derek’s house in April 2018. After, we all took a couple of bottles to dinner, got up the next morning & drove 2 1/2 hours to this vineyard to harvest. It was a good 24 hours. Interesting farming in the vineyard that I’ve not see anywhere else in the many regions I’ve traveled.

Takes a long time for the taste to catch up to the nose. Cherry and chocolate is mainly what im tasting. Petit Clos is better for similar money — 9 days ago

Rive Dei Ciliegi Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro 2019

9.0

MB selection no vintage on bottle. First encounter with a genuine Lambrusco of such quality! Deep purple color almost magenta with foam of fine bubbles. Interesting nose of bright red fruits mixed with earthy and citric notes. Stimulating texture with bright acidity and nice finish. Very dry. Great food wine. Great value at 16. Should get another to age a few years — 10 days ago

Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2017

Clean and sturdy. Golden apples, big naval oranges, yellow peaches, minty green basil. All of age in amphora.

Weighty, viscous, balanced. A lesson in Trebbiano - instructive, precise, soft textured. I wish it had a longer leash. Let’s get groovy.

Gran Reserva Valle del Maule Carménère 2016

Delicious! What a steal. Could drink this all night. Some Cab characteristics, but a bit lighter on the backside. That doesn’t mean anything except to me. Lovely wine for the price, well balanced- cardamon, dirty, apples, strawberry, very ripe plum. Can I find more? — 21 days ago
