Barone Ricasoli

Casalferro Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2015

The nose is full throttle from the get-go—a surprise reminding me of my recent trip to Magic Mountains, as West Coast Racers is a roller coaster with no slow-burn climb uphill. Oh no—you zoom out the gates and go through a series of twisty-windy loops and it’s a shock to your system but then you’re like “let’s do it again!”
And so with this. That explosive nose is savory and earthy like a blackberry compote kissed by a forest spirit. On the palate the tannins are the epitome of velvety and well-integrated. I get all the aromas of the nose here, plus some more red fruit. And vanilla. And then again with almost an…iodine herb thing I always associate with Italian wines, no matter the grape. And then a hint of…Montenegro? Is this the wine for both roller coaster and amaro aficionados? Stand-up Merlot. Do it.

Cynogorski Vranac 2015


I have no idea what I am drinking but it isn’t that bad. Dark like a Cabernet with a bit of licorice and blackberries. Fun buy from a local Italian grocery store — a year ago

This is superb profile of the Vranac grape. Fruity and rich; just the right bit of tannins. A total winner. — 5 months ago
