Schola Sarmenti

Cubardi Salento IGT Primitivo 2016

Fruity and jammy, fairly round. Great with Dominos pizza! Purchased from Jackson Fillmore Trattoria as a 3rd alternate to the wine we ordered. — 2 years ago

Arcanum

Toscana Cabernet Franc Blend 2008

Masterpiece blend of Cabernet Franc, Cab Sauv, and Merlot. Intense and heady aroma of stewed plum, chewy raisins, leather and rosemary. A little lighter on the tongue with some oak. But still very well rounded with deep and complex fruit. The Jackson family experiment in Tuscany is a great success. — 3 years ago

Vignobles Brunier ( Frédéric & Daniel Brunier )

Piedlong Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

Very clear in colour. Quite muted on the nose, both from the bottle and glass even after decanting. But very delicate and fragrant in its aromatics. Medium to light bodied - lavender, bergamot, white pepper, aniseed, five spice, raspberry, all of which flows through the palate which brims with orange bitters acidity and fine grained tannins. The finish ends with some burnt coffee notes. In his book Beyond Flavour, Nick Jackson notes that Grenache is prone to oxidation quite quickly. I’ve often thought that decanting CNDP does little to improve its aromatics. Is that what he’s touching on? (Not rhetorical - I would welcome answers in the comments!)

Ultimately an elegant, lighter style CNDP. Not dissimilar to pinot noir. High abv is handled well by fresh mouthfeel. Would love to try this at 10-15 years of age.

Au Bon Climat

Julia's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

First Pinot produced from this Kendall Jackson vineyard named after Jess Jackson’s daughter, Julia. Fruit forward with tons of fruit aromas, herb and oak notes, aged for 12 months in French oak, 25% new, making this wine fresh and vibrant good for drinking now, and some short-term aging. The 2016 was a good year with an early harvest with perfectly ripe fruit. On the palate, strawberry and cherry flavors with baking spice and gentle oak. Fine tannins, lingering ending with fruit and subtle spice character. — 2 years ago
