Mid Lemon with a brassy note in colour. Sulphidic/burnt match notes, lemony aromas. A lively palate showing citrus, mineral and bright acid. More lean than full bodied but very good and interesting. Should age well. Winemaker, Rob Diletti, is an experienced Wine Show Judge in demand at Shows around Australia and a Len Evans Tutorial scholar. Barb and I were lucky to have a private tasting at the winery in Porongurup with Rob in January this year. Great QPR - $25 a bottle at the Cellar Door. — a month ago

The nose is abundant strawberry framed by French oak. Decanted 90 minutes & temperature cooled to 58F....the room temperature for a castle😉The flavours are balanced from front to back evolve as follows: cherry, red currant, black olive, graphite and lengthy green pepper finish. It’s colour is translucent Crayola purple with medium liquid weight and the tannic grip pairs well with the richness of CAB Ribeye, rustic garlic mash and any well buttered green veggie of choice.

‘Product of Washington’ but cellared and bottled in Geyserville, California. This wine has been around. Black label front and back, sleek. Dark as night in the glass. Smells ‘winey’. It’s got fruit syrup, fruit flavored balsamic, and some cedar perhaps. Flavors are very balanced and fairly nuanced. Has a hint of that sagebrush that some WA Merlot brings. Also nice black currant thing they always say with Cab. Also a hint of black licorice. Plenty of tannins and a nice zing on the tongue. This is a great affordable blend made with a deft hand. Substantial but not overwhelming. Funny it’s got 10% Pinot and 10% Syrah. Only in America...

Really ripe and rich. Too much me thinks. The freshness and crisp texture that I love in the #sangiovese grape has been lost in a blend with #cabernet and #merlot Oh yeah and then there’s the price! Completely too expensive, average price is about 120€ in Europe with no VAT included. #biondisanti #toscano #tuscany #italy Castello di Montepo is a Tuscan wine estate in the Scansano district of #Maremma Toscana, founded in the 1990s by Jacopo Biondi Santi of the famous Montalcino family.
The winery is housed in the castle Montepo itself, a single fortress building set on a rocky outcrop
In contrast to the Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino estate, where large Slavonian oak casks are used for maturing wines, the wines here are aged in French oak barrels. — a month ago
Besides the killer artwork, and the castle winery, the wine itself is a light but easy to drink can — 4 months ago
