Broc Cellars

Solano County Green Valley Valdiguié 2014

I always love this varietal at Broc for a kind of sour watermelon vibe, but to now have that balanced with the bit of age this bottle had - *chef’s kiss* — 6 days ago

Calcabrina Fattoria Biodinamica

Foglio 61 Umbria Sangiovese 2018

Nose has dried blueberries, blueberry jam, mashed blackberry, sun scorched soil, wet green herbals and slight alcohol heat.

Palate has rich, ripe blackberry, ripe black cherry, cocoa powder, anise, dry sandy soil with mild tannins. Nice acidity, medium finish.

The 1/5 addition of Sagrantino is perfect, really adding some depth to the nose and palate. We still have a few of these, suggest holding until 2023+ for future bottles.

Blend of 80% Sangiovese / 20% Sagrantino.

@Joshua Fisher Yup, and they're loving our 'new' New England weather, more like Vancouver than I've ever experienced recently, rain, warm, rain, warm, rain, rain, rain... Nothing seems to dry out.

Domaine Heresztyn

La Perrière Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Pop and pour. About 2.5 yrs since my last.btl (where I said drink up). On the nose: whole cluster green, cola, herbs, Gevrey earth, lovely complexity. On the palate: excellent acidity, soft cola, green herbs...attenuated tamnin on the finish. Clear evolution from the last btl, but if this is representative, I worry this will be oxidized tomorrow. — 2 days ago

Hirsch Vineyards

Block 8 Pinot Noir 2015

Took a while to open up. Nice fruit came out after an austere opening. A little green, but I wonder if it might settle to freshness with a few more years. — 3 days ago

Anakota

Helena Dakota Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Rich nose full of charcoal and minerals. So damned primary, beautiful attack of cassis that’s just a tad green, but in a nice way. Lavender, tapenade. Monster with years to go. — 10 days ago

Seavey Vineyard

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

A member of our Tasting Group generously provided this bottle from his cellar. It had been opened earlier in the day, decanted for sediment and reintroduced to the bottle. In typical Tasting Group fashion, presented double-blind. Appearance: a deep ruby color with no signs of sediment or any obvious signs of age. Medium+ intensity. Medium viscosity. On the nose, notes of ripe red and dark fruits, some green pepper, some leather, tobacco and baking spices. On the palate, a mix of delicious dark fruits including currants, cherries, and dates with dark chocolate, earth, leather, and tobacco. Extremely elegant. The tannins were quite firm (medium+) and acid was also medium+. The finish was remarkably suave and lasted forever. This came across as a special wine. I vacillated between Margaux and Napa, probably with 15+ years on it but I was leaning towards the New World because of the fruit being so beautifully ripe. Damn, was I impressed when this was revealed to be ’95 Seavey. This has another 20 years of life in it…possible more. Bravo! — 9 days ago

Winter's Cuvée Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2010

Yeasty biscuit and lemonade on the nose. Lemon with a hint of lime squarely in the center of the palate. Oodles of tiny bubbles throughout. Such a lovely sip! — 5 days ago

Estate Etzel Block Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir 2018

Interesting comparison to the 2004. Too primary and structured right now. — 12 days ago

Bellaria

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2017

Nose has black cherry compote, recently sanded cedar, muddy garden soil and wet green herbals.

Palate has partially dried black cherry, blackberry, over-ripe black currant, crushed slate, medium tannins show this wine is still youthful.

A delicious wine showing lovely concentration and aromatics, rustic in style but high-minded as well. Drinking fantastic tonight, likely much better 2024+, might be hard to keep the remaining corks sealed for that long...
