Un pinot noir digne de ceux des vieux pays…! Un accent de terre et la présence des mûres au final. Sublime!

Delicious! Coffee, red fruit, tamarind, toasted coconut and toffee. Phenolic complexity, a bit of camphor and granitic mineral with a savory salty punch. Cocoa and red miso. Great cdr drinking well out of the gate but probably even better in four years. — a month ago
Needed a 2nd day to come around, I couldn’t finish a single glass yesterday.
Very good for $30.00, wouldn’t pay retail. Thanks for the hookup @Rob Brobst III
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon turned out beautifully. Rich, sumptuous and incredibly alluring, the 2018 will drink well right out of the gate. Dark red fruit, mocha, spice and licorice are some of the notes that build in the glass. I would give it a few years in bottle, or alternatively open it in advance. Aeration and the passage of time did wonders for the 2018. It spent 20 months in barrel, 85% new.

This red offers a mix of sassafras, loam and anise notes, subtly inlaid into a core of steeped plum and warmed cassis flavors. A tug of bramble and singed apple wood keeps the finish grounded. Drink now through 2030. 6,000 cases made.

The larger production appellation 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley checks in as 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot, all aged 20 months in 85% new French oak. Classy notes of ripe darker fruits, bouquet garni, violets, chocolate, and earth all give way to a medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, lengthy 2018 with good mid-palate depth and present yet ripe tannins. It shows the more tight, reserved style of the vintage yet has lots of potential. Give bottles 3-4 years and enjoy over the following decade or more. — 5 months ago
Bright and acidic. Notes of peach and lemon with a distinctly mineral finish. — 10 days ago
Always an attractive wine in an attractive package, year in and year out. What a terrific nose. All brambly and gamey fresh out of the gate with so much smoke following. It smells so good. The cherry aromas come a little late but are bright and pristine. A ton of earthy goodness that comes and stays and you’re so thankful it does.
Oregon Syrah as crafted from the folks from one of my favorite labels, Methode Sauvage. And once you taste it, you know who made it. Natural and glorious, the acidity is brisk and the overall aura is esoteric and delicious. Electric fruit but the best part is the greenery. Drink slightly chilled and let it sit for a while, it absolutely improves with air. A star of a wine. — 4 days ago
The 2018 Carema is fabulous. Deep and exquisitely layered, the 2018 shows off its depth and sheer pedigree right out of the gate. There is so much going on. Sweet dark cherry, plum, leather, menthol, spice, dried herbs and leather are some of the many nuances that flesh out in the glass. More than anything, though, it is the wine's balance that is just exquisite. This is a fabulous example of Carema. Impressive. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2022)

Wow ! Fucktastic out of the gate.
Nose is so evocative of the mosel. Blue slate. Green apple skin.
Palate is crystalline sugar. Bright mineral. Perfect green apple. Wow.
Luscious. Some apricot. Rich but balanced. Fantastic density.
Iconic mosel spatlese.

So incredibly smooth right out of the gate. Really dark and a wonderful red wine made out of port grapes. Heavy and rich with lots and lots of dark fruits, all of them￼ — 25 days ago
The 2019 Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne is one of the hidden gems in Vietti’s stellar range. Crushed rocks, lavender, rose petal, mint, gravel and inky dark fruit all run through a racy, beautifully layered Barbera that will drink well right out of the gate. $20.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, December 2021) — 8 months ago
