From Baden at Swiss border, hand-picked Pinot Noir grown on lime stone, fermented with natural yeasts and with 22 mo aging in 225 liter barrels. Red lightly viscous unfiltered; nose of ripe strawberries, chocolate, and earthy sulphury spicy notes - the good kind; although low on alcohol (12%) the taste is satisfying, has ample acids, and is carried into a long finish on the back of straw- and lingon-berries and a touch of oak-spices. — 8 days ago
The wine of choice this evening is the 2016 Round Pond Estate Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc.
On the nose there is grapefruit, white peach, honeydew melon, herbaceous notes and minerality.
On the palate there is grapefruit, peach, honeydew melon, lychee, pear, herbs and minerals.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that moves into a medium + to long musky citrus mineral finish. Let us enjoy this weekend and be kind to one another, please be safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 9 days ago
Smooth, buttery, my kind of Chardonnay — 9 days ago
Easing my way back into reds with this “house espresso blend” style chilled red.
Missed the musky perfume of carignan. Aromas of cedar wood and peppercorns. Black cherries and grapefruit.
Sharp and fruity. Juicy and refreshing. Even a bit astringent, which I kind of like. — 11 days ago
Performs way above its DOC. Complex nose of intense, winey cherries, loads of crushed rock-infused gravel, brambly notes, and roasted green herbs. Mouthfilling, soft, zingy with acids and minerality. Really fun. Will last and even improve over the next few years, which is kind of unusual for a Rosso D. — 19 hours ago
Superb cherry nose, with hay and an earthy thing. Very appealing. The palate is delicious, very juicy. Superb cherry note, a good width, a very strong acid backbone and a nervous, vivid mouthfeel. Some gentle tannins appear in the rear before a long finish with fruit and a nice and clean bitter note that blooms in the end. This is definitely my kind of stuff! — 2 days ago
