Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

Btl 3519. 2 hrs slow ox. On the nose: heavenly delicate black cherry, blood orange and a hint of VA, giving a little bit of gloss. On the palate: fatastic acidity, and so elegant: black cherry, orange peel, lovely density, so lithe...soft tannin on the sexy finish. — 2 days ago

State Ranch Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This wine has aged very gracefully. Did not decant but allowed to open in glass as we slow drank the bottle over 3-4 hours. Dark, full, dry, smooth. Outstanding! — 6 days ago

Domaine des Varoilles

Clos des Variolles Monopole Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Pop and pour, 2 hrs slow ox. You could wait until 2027 as the drink-by dates suggest, but as a 17, you'd be missing out: this is fairly generous, and rather open (I'm drinking the 17 before the 16 for example). On the nose: lovely soft mulberry, gevrey earth, musky perfume, soft spice, wild strawberry. On the palate: primary, but so compelling: excellent acidity, tangy pomegranate, wild strawberry, loads of spice. and soft tannin on the finish. Fabulously energetic and so drinkable. An unheralded gem of Gevrey? Unquestionably best young vintage I have tasted. — 5 days ago

Dry Stack Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir 2020

A rosé made from first press pinot noir grapes. So well made. Some tannin coupled with bright acidity. Strawberries on the mid palate help to create a lifted finish. Great for the summer. Best enjoyed without fud - doesn’t need any. — 19 days ago

Yes, @Sharon B. The picture is a true rep of color @Joshua Fisher, I think it’s about $43. Brilliant tho.

Cantina dei Produttori Carema

Riserva Carema Nebbiolo 2016

Light brown/red color…violet, rose, bright cherry notes… very light in texture, bright and lively acidity. A bit young, but very nice with grilled pork tenderloin, risotto with fresh zucchini and oven roasted tomatoes. Very nice food wine … sitting on a few more for next few years. Nebbiolo works so well with slow cooked risotto with lots of fresh parmigiana regiano. — 4 days ago

Grande Réserve Pères Trappistes Belgian Ale 2019

Big head... smells of Molasses and chocolate cake. A classic Trappist. Dark. Thick. A slow sipper. Tried to match with Indian food... I’d say it worked-ish. (the vintage is on the cork). — 19 days ago
