Signature Syrah 2017

The 2017 ‘Signature’ Syrah has a very small portion of Viognier blended in. Showing off its dark hue, this reveals layers of dark fruits with smoked brisket, Asian spices and chocolate tones on this gorgeous bouquet. The palate is dense and chewy with a gorgeous mouthfeel. Layers of ripe figs and blackberry coulis flavors collide with minerals, smoked pork shoulder and minerals all meld together in the glass. A complete wine, this downright awesome Syrah will cellar well over the next ten years. Drink 2020-2030- 93

Signature Napa Valley Merlot 2006

Beautiful expression of Napa merlot. Blueberry and blackberry fruit with notes of smoked meat and a bit of bell pepper. Finish is long and savory, with great tannic structure. — 2 days ago

Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

Beautiful deep transparent mid red. Fairly high pitches acidity, redcurrant and rosehip mixed with some darker fruit like blackcurrant. Not too crazy or untamed. Nice to try one of Canonica’s wines and would be keen to follow with a barolo. — 10 days ago

Vigna Giachini Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Tasted double-blind. The wine presented as dark ruby but one could see through it (this should have been my clue; but I ignored that). On the nose, bright red fruits, some baking spices, some vanilla...tasted like it had seen French barrique. On the palate, there was a sweet attack with candied cherries and baking spices. Medium, long finish. Good balance. Firm but not punishing tannins. Good acid. I thought this was a 2015 Merlot-based, right bank Bordeaux from a good producer. I was completely out of sorts with this wine and to be honest, I can’t really blame myself since I rarely drink modern Barolo. I should have eliminated Bordeaux varietals based off the color alone which would have probably put me on a better track. Anyway, this bottle lacked a lot of the characteristics I crave in more traditional Barolo but was a good enough wine in its own right...just not to my tastes. — a month ago

Le Gramolere Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

17/20 (92/100) Приятный и комплексный аромат фиалок, вишни, земляники и ванили; в развитии появляется бальзамик. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, но деликатными по текстуре танинами. Мощное и уже готовое Бароло. — 10 days ago

Definitely recommend.

Benedetto Signature Series Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Surprisingly youthful and vibrant. Lots of red fruit: chocolate-covered cherry, raspberry coulis, red currant, red plum; red licorice, Count Chocula milk, mocha, toasty vanilla. Smooth cocoa powder tannins, lively acidity, medium plus body, moderately long finish. Subtle, restrained, elegant, and balanced. Not the kind of wine I usually drink, but delicious and perfect with steak. People drink Napa Cab way too young!!Decanted 20 minutes. — 10 days ago
