Tannat Blend

Bodega Garzon

Reserva Tannat 2018

This inexpensive red is a go-to for me now. Robust, full flavor, deep Garnet color, lovely to enjoy with a steak or just enjoy a glass with some strong cheeses. — 3 months ago

Charles Ellner

Seduction Brut Champagne Blend 2006

Prior notes still apply, delicious bottle.

Nose has toasted brioche, grilled lemon, warm lemon creme, lemon zest, oxidized pear slice and fresh, rising bread dough. Palate has lemon pound cake, cold toast, limestone chips, dried lemon slice and (light) candied orange.
Great mid-palate, a restrained richness is all elegance, acid balance is perfect and not pulling you one way or another. At 15 years past vintage, a great example of finesse in Champagne.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our Conductors Andris Nelsons and John Williams will be leading a very engaging program of Jessie MONTGOMERY (Starburst), John WILLIAMS (Violin Concerto No. 2, world premiere featuring Anne-Sophie Mutter!), COPLAND (Quiet City) and STRAVINSKY (Suite from The Firebird, 1919 version). We're getting the luxury of enjoying Mr. Williams two nights in a row...what a great weekend of Contemporary music!

Balasto Red Blend 2016

I would describe this Uruguayan blend as a hybrid Napa/Bordeaux Red Blend with a touch of Rioja blended in. 45% Tannat, 25% Cabernet Franc, 18% Petite Verdot, 12% Marselan. Red and black fruit aromas with hints of violets and baking spices. Juicy red and black fruit flavors with hints of blueberries, grilled herbs, black licorice, Forrest Floor and dark chocolate. Excellent meaty texture with a long and minerally finish. Very complex with dusty tannins. Fantastic now, but this one might need some additional bottle age. — 5 days ago

Foglio 11 Umbria Rosso 2015

Nose has smoked blueberry syrup, over-ripe blackberry, wet roses, soaked raisins, finely chopped green herbs, muddy garden and incidental alcohol.

Palate has blueberry/blackberry jam, wow acidity, medium++ tannins, red velvet cake, incredible intensity on the dark fruits, notable acidity, juicy juicy blackberry, black currant; if this was ever labeled as a crunchy fruit Sagrantino, it fits the description perfectly.

Opened for slow oxidation of 6H then +3H decant, expect this to show better tomorrow or following days. Paired to local beef short ribs (Kinderhook Farm; Valatie, NY) in an Asian-style braising sauce, plated on top of Parmesan polenta, so yum.

100% Sagrantino, unmistakable. Revisit 2025-2030, wowzer.

Recioto della Valpolicella Classico Superiore Amarone Corvina Blend 1982

#AgedWineTuesday.

Ruby in color with a wide and dirty brick rim.

Showing a wonderful nose with lots of earth notes.

On the palate, sweet cherries, over ripen plums, raisins, dried fruits, chocolates, citrus, tobacco, coffee, peppercorn, earth, black tea, wet leaves and herbs.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Nice tangy finish, yet not very long, with fine grained tannins.

I did not decant it, but let it open up in the bottle. I really liked the nose, after 30 minutes of airtime.

Thank you John for sharing this with me.

Nice to see how this lasted so well, even though it is from a bad vintage.

This 39 year old is not at its peak any longer, but still very drinkable. I believe it was way better 10 years ago. Lucky to have the bottle all for myself, as no one else liked it. 😃

Also, great to see that the alcohol is kind of low (for an Amarone).

Aged for 2 years in wood barrels.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$120.
