Best red wine I've had! Jeannie said the same. Sweeter, so easy to drink. But not so sweet that Ben doesn't like it. Outstanding. — 20 days ago
Roganic at home, lockdown 2022. Days feel dark and we need to find a positive where we can … delicious food, good wine (super easy to drink: velvety, acidic, substance yet light). Need to see if they sell at Baker and Bottleman. — 4 months ago

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. — 2 years ago
Surprisingly big, bold & fruitful! 15yrs old, but not a snide teenager - full of body & balanced chewy leather/cocoa. Zichichi is a great value! — 2 months ago

Great and not really typical Sauvignon Blanc by Pyramid Valley experimenting in Marlborough region. According to their site, only 240 bottles produced. Expressive bouquet of white flowers, melon, pomelo and basil. Focused, precise and quite elegant. Flavours of estragon, plum with melon and nice citrus finish.
