Furore Bianco Fiorduva Costa d'Amalfi White Blend

Lot of lemon curd and almond (from the falanghina) and good salinity (from the biancolella). Really acidic and mineral wine - def not for everyone. Long finish with an almost zesty finish. — 15 days ago

Domaine de la Ronciere

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2015

Sho-nuf I like my chateauneuf! Wild, floral, but muscular and strong.

Usually, I try to pay attention during wine tastings, but honestly a lot of the time I am just imagining how well I would do in American Gladiators. Especially the early 90s version. (When I was a young and impressionable kid.)

I thought Malibu was an idiot and I knew I could take him out in the jousting competition, though I was certain Nitro would bash my head in with a pipe pretty quickly. Diamond... she scared me. The intense lipstick reminded me of some horrible creature of the night in search of blood. I preferred Lace. In fact, I really preferred Lace. (The first version: Marisa Pare. Not the later Lace played by Natalie Lennox Merritt.) I imagine the reason I have a penchant for wild tangled hair now is because of my infatuation with American Gladiator Lace when I was 4-7 years old. When I was younger, I would often imagine battling with Lace. As the events got more intense she would throw herself on top of me in frustration and we'd roll down the gladiator pyramid, making out in a heap of sexual energy and wild animalistic thrusting.

But I digress.

This wine smells like Lace.

Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark fruit, very much like sangria, tropical fruit which I haven’t often had in a red. Still manages to be bold and med/full bodied. Dry enough for @Kim Cuomo who won’t drink sweet anything. — a year ago

Furore Rosso Costa d'Amalfi Piedirosso Aglianico 2018

Needs a decant. A bit of spritz when first opened. With air, this got better and better. Earthy, fruity, savory. Nicely complex. Good food wine. Excellent pizza wine! — 4 months ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Thought this was a nicely balanced Pinot from the Ponzi family. Red fruits followed with a little herb note. — 3 years ago

Alfred Merkelbach

Kinheimer Rosenberg Kabinett Riesling 2015

2015 Merkelbach Kabinett is juicy & approachable. The album Cloud Corner by Marisa Anderson is a perfect counterpoint with its deliberate pace & nuanced moments. Following the music, the wine unfolds to show beauty beyond the all to easy drinkability — 3 years ago

And then again this is a pairing of contrasts, given the Merkelbach brothers age, traditionalism, and joie de vive. Compared to Marisa’s youth, counter-culturism, dark proclivities. I’ll have to give this a shot, as I am a fan of both. Salud!
