Great nose. Less finish — 4 days ago
Took a bit to open, but worth the wait. Really grew on me. Cherry, leather, tobacco. Kick of freshness and liveliness at the end. Helps that I love good Chianti—takes me back to Piazza del Campo. — 2 years ago
Champagne is for celebrating! Today, 12 years ago, I married my love & best friend in Cortona, Italy...in the heart of Tuscany. The day still lingers like it was yesterday. It was a spectacular day that I will never forget. Such memories!!!
So, to my wife Sofia, cheers!🍾🥂. I love you today more than ever.
All my previous notes apply. 9.4 on the Champange, a 10 on my partner choice and our day twelve years ago.
Photos of; the Piazza of the La Repubblica...the building we were married, us leaving for our reception and one of the better meals of our life, walking through town on the way to our reception and our wedding ceremony. — 3 years ago
Del Dotto Pritchard hill, it’s ready to go almost pop&pour
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Villa del Lago is a huge wine endowed with tons of class and personality. It shows fabulous intensity from beginning to end, with layers of dark fruit that build effortlessly towards the big, enveloping finish. This is a dramatic, large-scaled wine bursting at the seams with personality. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
