I Fabbri

Robert Mondavi Winery

To-Kalon Vineyard I Block Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Nose has over-ripe/sweet pineapple, lanolin, fresh pineapple, melted candle wax, clean cotton tee shirt and faint white pepper.

Palate has dried pineapple, dried lime peel, tangerine peel, spicy oak, waxy yellow apple peel, hint of (citrus) sweetness on the long/complex finish. Wow. Decanted 4H.

Bought at the winery in 2008, was looking to hold the bottle at least this long, maybe another 5Y would still be acceptable in proper storage. A perfect, clean cork pull, no seepage or saturation at all.

Acústic Celler

Acústic Vinyes Velles Nobles Montsant Garnatxa i Carinyena 2017

It's a beautiful wine. Deep and intense. The tannins are strong so it needs a long decantation (2 hours). The nose is very fruity: a blackcurrant, a plum with some sweet liqueur. Then the palate with a chocolate and a leather. The composition is perfect. More fruit, more earthy notes and it would be perfect. — 7 days ago

Bodegas Faustino

Faustino Rioja Gran Reserva I 2008

Very nice aged Rioja. Probably plenty more years in this but drinking very nicely now. Nose is dark fruit, vanilla, cedar and light licorice. In the glass, vibrant with violet edges, very fresh. Palate is a blend of dark fruit, cherry, vanilla and leather, medium tannins and a lovely long sour candy finish. Not a regular choice for me but this was really good. — 19 days ago

I Vigneri di Salvo Foti

Vinudilice Rosé Blend 2017

Wowow. Salmon-ruby colored, packed with red fruit, pink-green just ripe strawberries, wild berry, and zingy minerality and acid. But with a leesy, buttery quality reminiscent of great rosé champagne. Intoxicating combination, leading with the nose. Excellent texture and mouthfeel, and a long finish. Great stuff; some of the top rosé, anywhere. — 19 days ago

And Why am I Mr. Pink Project Rosé of Sangiovese 2019

Tremendous QPR - delicious, light, refreshing, grapefruit and just a hint of watermelon, maybe? This is the last of the case we ordered a couple months ago and boy could we use some more. — 3 days ago

I have been meaning to try this bubbly for awhile! No specialty wine stores in Avon IN. I did pick this up at a liquor store; only one on the shelf. Yes a 2011 for $ 22.99! Does that seem right? @Severn Goodwin ? Present pear, baked golden apples, brioche, mild acidity and honeycomb! — 17 days ago
