Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2020

Colour is mid Ruby red. Dusty cherries, savoury cherry pip, a touch of menthol. Thought there were hints of caramel oak but I note it was fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperature. Malo in vats of cement, stainless steel and wood (large bottis I would imagine).Good structure for a Rosso - silky tannins. Very enjoyable and a great match with Fettuccine. — a day ago

Lunaris Syrah Malbec 2020

Aika hyvä vampire viini, hyvin hilloinen mutta ei liian mehuinen. Mielelläni joisin uudestaan.

The Language of Yes

En Passerillage Grenache 2020

I tried my first bottle of this several months ago, and since then it’s really settled down and blossomed. Light color, but the nose pops with perfumey cherry and raspberry, along with subtle notes of moist earth, spice, and sandalwood. In the mouth, it’s got intense flavors in a floaty carriage, with deep red fruit and lots of savory notes. Long finish, with a teensy bit of tannin. Alcohol in check, and enough acidity to keep the intense fruit buoyed up. Superb. If you’re a Grenache hound like me, get some of this. — 2 days ago

Scar of the Sea

Bassi Vineyard Pinot Gris Pinot Noir 2021

So light I almost forgot to taste it. Glad I did, beautiful wine. It’s such a nice combo or the Pinots and blended so well. Lavender and hibiscus with a bright red fruit nose. Strawberries are most pronounced though I’m enjoying blood orange and cranberry too. Really a great bottle that went too quickly. — 2 days ago

9.5

Contrasting this to the Sarah Francis, it’s more dense and viscous. It’s just more decadent, while the SF is more ethereal. Rated them the same but for different reasons. — 11 days ago

I know, @Jan A. When wifey and I travel, we always ferry a few bottles with us. Puts a dollop of cream on top, so to speak… 😎
