Viña Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

Popped and poured in a cocktail hour setting; no formal notes. That being said, the 2007 Bosconia is quite striking and grabbed my attention even in the midst of social responsibilities. This baby is slightly funky and loaded with Luxardo cherry fruit, olives, dill and damp earth. It starts a touch lean but seems to gain weight the longer that it’s open. So much personality. I don’t get to see Bosconia very often in our market…which is a shame because it’s a lovely, and decidedly different, expression of Rioja from LdH. Drinking well now and should continue to do so past 2027. — 2 months ago

Château Labory de Tayac

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Nothing but secondary and tertiary notes on the nose. Hoisin sauce, shoe leather, luxardo cherry reduction. On the palate, light and fresh. Lots going on. Still some tannins on the back end. A treat. — 5 months ago

Reserve Napa Valley Pinot Noir 1985

Beautiful soft and earthy. Love old Napa. Savory, Maggi, dried mushroom, aromatic pipe tobacco, balsamic (in a fresh way, like a drizzle on ice cream), cocoa powder, luxardo cherry.
Unexpectedly great.

The Prisoner Wine Company

Napa Valley Zinfandel Blend 2018

Always delicious. Notes of boysenberry, raspberry preserves, old leather, Luxardo cherry, & flint. I prefer when the Prisoner vintages present as smoke-bombs rather than juice-bombs, but I’ll take it either way. — 5 months ago

Giovanni Manzone

Le Gramolere Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Day two: drinking well right now.. black cherry kirsch, tar, clove, and olive. Definitely on the plum meets luxardo cherry end of Barolo. Meaty tannin backbone, with orange peel highlights. Not flashy, just super solid. Drink or hold. — 8 months ago
