Monte Velho Alentejano Aragonez Blend 2019

Absolute steal for 5.49€. Drinks like it is much older than a 19. Well integrated, light tannins, isn’t going to last for years but is ready to go right now. — a month ago

Monte de Perescuma Vinho Regional Alentejano 2015

Pleasantly suprised with the 1015 vintage. Very smooth taste, round and not sour at all. The whole bottle went in so smoothly and the tannins gave me no headache, with most wines they do. — a year ago

Alento Tinto Vinho Regional Alentejano Red Blend

Nice acidity, fruit forward, not a heavy body and minimal oak. Nice hints of spice, not too dry. Great drinking wine — 2 years ago

Ridge Vineyards

Lytton Estate Dry Creek Valley Syrah Grenache 2008

What a pleasant surprise! From Monte Bello to Geyserville, Ridge consistently produces classic Napa greatness. Well balanced, soft mouthfeel, Extremely smooth tannins. A beautiful ruby color, light oak, tobacco, raspberry, dark cherries, got a lot of nuttiness which was a delicious surprise. This wine has aged very well and really shows how a little aging can do wonders. — 3 years ago

40th Anniversary Vintage Monte Bello Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001


2001 Ridge Monte Bello. Date night at Jar. Amazing. Didn’t decant, let it open in the glass. Dark fruit on the front, plush velvety texture, mineral, smoke, ash on the finish. So smooth. LOVE. Do NOT decant! — 7 months ago

Casca Wines

Monte Cascas Colheita Douro White Blend

This was a perfect accompaniment to baked cod. It is mellow and doesn't overpower but still has plenty of personality. Enjoyed it with just a slight chill on it. I think serving temperature is key to appreciating this one. — 2 years ago

Monte Cristi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2001

Decanter next...

A Barolo-like nose, some raisin aspect, dried tart cherry, moist/earthy (it's Earth Day BTW, did you better the planet today?) aspects, and call me crazy, but if I sniff hard enough there is a faint new shower curtain aroma.
Palate is rehydrated raisin & cherry. Tannins are still quite present. I'm thinking we may only do half this borrow tonight and revisit tomorrow, it's still tight. I think this could go another 8-10 quite easily.

24 Hour Update: Nose is closer to the same, but a little more depth to the Earth & vinyl notes. Palate is significantly improved, rehydrated cherry, portabella mushroom/umami flavors, just killing it, worth another point tonight. Only bottle...argh!
