Tenuta Sette Ponti

Crognolo Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2017

Grabbed another bottle! Estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, 15 miles northwest of the city of Arezzo, past the village of San Giustino Valdarno. Crognolo, aged in French Allier barriques, deep Ruby with red fruit aromas and floral notes. On the palate blackberry and sweet cherry flavors, blossom notes, spice and fine dusty tannins. Good balance, long finish ending with some oak and mineral tones. Nice! Try in 2022 or decant for an hour first. — a month ago

Bodegas Familia Chavarri

Reserva Seleccionada Vendimia Izarbe Rioja Tempranillo 2009

Really nice mature Rioja. Dense dark fruit, wood, herbs, good length, a little smoke, but that could also be the fucking air here in the Northwest because I’m drinking this outside. — 3 days ago

Averill Creek Vineyard

Cowichan Valley Pinot Noir 2012

If you can get a back vintage of this wine, do it. Peppery on the tip of the tongue, lush tannins, ripe red raspberries and currants, tobacco. Everything you could want from a northwest Pinot noir. Decanted for 3 hours. — 2 months ago
