Today I crushed a fantastic son of a bitch wine. Good god was this exact wine for any moment ever. My friends at the driving range didn't like it, but maybe it doesn't go well with white claws, but we still crushed some balls too.

Clear garnet. Nose of black cherry and roses. Medium light, fruity palate of black cherry, violets, and a hint of anise. Medium plus acidity. Medium minus tannins. Hey, it’s a solid Sangiovese that’ll go great with Italian-American fare or medium cheeses. Drink now. — 5 days ago
I am sooo impressed with this. Granted, we bought and brought it right from the winery (stored in their cellar for all these years); but, for me, this has been unlike any older vintage I have had to date. It was so smooth and elegant and still so complex. It kept evolving and shifting in just the short time we spent together (from an initial nose that hinted at age to toasted almond to a hint of Port to snapped tree branches) and left me wondering who it really is—what it was in its prime—and, inevitably, wanting more. — 14 days ago
The 2016 Chianti Classico Argenina is fabulous. Dark cherry, gravel, sage, mint and leather bring out the darker side of Sangiovese in a Chianti Classico that captures all the pedigree of this great vintage. The 2016 is intense in the glass, and yet retains so much Sangiovese translucence. $24.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2020) — 4 days ago
Early ripening Bordeaux Blend of 51% Merlot, 31% Cab Franc, 17% Cab Sauv & 1% Petit Verdot. Dark Ruby with aromas of rich berry fruits with notes of spice, herb and forest floor. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry and cherry with cinnamon and mushroom. Soft fine tannins, rich mouthfeel well balanced with vivid acidity. Long finish ending with fruit, cedar and tobacco. Will benefit from some short term aging, Nice value!! — 2 days ago
