Let's Go Broesko

Weingut Hexamer

Trocken Weissburgunder 2020

Pale straw but some really strong green secondary coloration.
The aroma or let's go bouquet is constantly changing as it warms and breathes in the glass. I get cotton candy, turning into honeysuckle with mineral undertones and...is that menthol?
It's a bit tight unless you incorporate a nice loud air slurp, then it opens with a nice body and texture and near perfect acidity. A touch of bitter and raw green veggie before clearing and leaving a short neutral finish.

Shenandoah Vineyards Inc.

Rezerve Barbera 2014

F Me Wine. Huh. Yup, this has me. Tobacco and oaky lovey goodness. Nothing about this wine says boring steady solid Barbera. It says, "Hey baby, let's make sweet sweet complex indigo berrilicious over and over grape love." And then you can't remember anything that is or was before. So Good. Can easily become my go-to over Macchia Mischievous. — 4 years ago

S.L.V. Estate Grown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Happy Cabernet day! Right in its drinking window but no rush. There is a nice violet floral type aroma now. Big lush dark fruit, smoke, slate, and spice.

Panther Creek

Winemaker's Cuvée Pinot Noir 2014

It is Friday night again and I have picked up just recently this 2014 Panther Creek Wimemakers Cuveé from the Willamette Valley that I wanted to try.

On the nose there is cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, vanilla, smokey oak, spice, black olive, violet and earth.

The nose reveals notes of dark cherry, raspberry, strawberry, clove, cola, vanilla, wet leaves, spice, forest floor and earth.

This wine is medium body with medium + acidity and medium sandy tannins that lead to a medium to long earthy fruit finish. A serviceable wine that would go nice with many different dishes. Let's start this weekend off right and make this a great one. Please stay safe and enjoy yourselves. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Azienda Agraria Lisini

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Past notes apply, but let's go through the motions. Decanted for 45 minutes. Nose: Tobacco, pine needles, soil, and a cherry base. Deep ruby in color, medium plus bodied, medium plus alcohol, medium acidity. More red cherry emerges on the palate, and pipe tobacco... More precisely, my dad's Captain Black from the 1980s. Taste not quite as complex as the smell. Finish is medium. Tannins are perfectly centered. This just misses my 94 point threshold.

Tychson Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

One hour decant(decent amount of sediment). A sumptuous dark ruby red with some bricking. On the nose: Sweet perfume jumps from the glass with black cherry, floral, black olives, and a minty menthol. Let's you know to buckle up....a 4 point harness system buckle up!! Taste: Sweet tannins coat the mouth with dark fruit and jolts of red plum, mocha, cedar, and toasty oak.

A full body, juicy wine with great acidity. A pencil lead/mineral looong finish. Drinking great now and will go another 10 years. Got 2 more bottles...YES!!

Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2007

I would go out of my way for this Ripasso. Can a wine be meaty and delicate? Yes. Outstanding red that let's you taste the region. — 5 years ago
