Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Give this one some time to open up and you’ll get red fruit heaven and much more. Great flavor and the tannins are smooth. — 14 days ago

Vicenziana Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

I opened this, then the Texas snow storms hit and crippled our energy grid. Consumed over a few days while sitting in my running parked car in my driveway. I was charging my cell phone, enjoying some heat and radio, and eating my dinners, plate resting in the passenger seat. All I could jot down - new leather and bright red cherries. — 4 months ago

Château Cap de Faugères

Côtes de Castillon Merlot Blend 2011

2011 vintage. Estate with 46 hectares of vineyards owned by Silvio Denz (also Faugères, Péby-Faugères and Roycheron in Saint-Emilion , and Lafayrie-Peyraguey in Sauternes). Sometimes criticised for the modern style, the truth is in the glass. And this Cap de Faugères from a difficult vintage absolutely delivers for the price (9,90 euro). Deep red colour with only a slight evolution at the rim. The nose is a bit jammy, but the mouth is much better with the ripe fruit balanced by the acidity and well-tamed tannin. It may be not the most subtle wine, but it's a very attractive right bank Bordeaux at its peak and a strong effort for the vintage. — 7 months ago

Riserva Vernaccia di Oristano 2002

ESF
9.0

Well, you’ve never had Vernaccia until you’ve had this stuff! From Sardinia, this was very Sherry-like, somewhere between Amontillado & Oloroso - very dry w/mind blowing complexity, concentration & vigor. Drinks fat & viscous w/distinct oxidized notes of balsamic, tobacco, toasted nuts & yeast, spices - absolutely ethereal spices like Asian 5 spice & sweet baking spices. Man, this was really way out there... — 3 months ago
