Riddle Bricks


DaGromis Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

This Barolo shows its garnet color turning to that of bricks. The nose is soft and savory, with an earthy presence to frame the cherry and floral flavors. The palate shows red fruit and licorice with a hefty dose of citrus minerality. Oak spice plays a role, as does the wine’s great tannic structure. The finish is long lasting and centered on the savory side. — 2 months ago

The Stones Speak Funk Estate Vineyard Syrah 2014

Nose is floral, smoky, it actually has some dark raspberry fruit (unusual for this AVA), warm bricks, iodine, warm sweet raw beef, very complex. Enters the mouth in a linear fashion, not that fat, and then goes on and on. Flavors are nicely ripe: very mineral and savory, but there is some dark fruit; lots of umami sensations. Tremendous length. Good balance. Tannins there but well hidden. Great wine — 5 months ago

Château Côte Montpezat

Cuvée Compostelle Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

On the nose, bricks and clay, oak and leather. Taste is tobacco, oak, soft tannins, silky. Blackberries, allspice, slight clove.
This is a 2016 we're drinking in 2020 and it's delicious. Cellar until 2022 or 2024 and it will be amazing.

Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

On the nose, rose pedal, wet bricks and leather. Some orange peel and gravel as well. Super delicate, good acidity, soft velvet tannin. I drank the 16’ langhe the other week and wow is this so much softer and more Burgundian. Super interesting and finessed. Lovely Barolo. Even for a lesser year. — 3 months ago

Gramercy Cellars

The Third Man Columbia Valley Grenache 2015

Nose is fantastic, with kirsch, ripe raspberry ooze, smoky bricks, roasted herbs. Rich and intense on the attack, with initial fruit giving way to a long, savory finish. Full-bodied. My only criticism is that the tannins are a tad bit coarse, and add a slight bitterness that detracts at the end. — 6 months ago
