True Winter

Winter Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

I always hoped that this vintage would turn into something special but it never did. Lacks depth, structure and finish. Pleasant enough to finish the bottle though. — 8 months ago

Produttori del Barbaresco

Barbaresco Nebbiolo

As the summer is slipping out of our hands, its time to to pop those complex reds that we’ve been lastning for. Produttori del Barbaresco is considered one of the best cooperatives in the world and its 2016 Barbaresco is a solid proof of that statement.
Restrained at first and needs a couple of hours in the decanter to reach its climax. True to its provenance its clasically crafted, and puts up complex profile of red cherries, rose hip, strawberries, spice, bitter orange and a volatile dried floral lift over a canvas of wet soil.
An offensive approach on the palate with a high acidity and a generous portion of mouth coating tannins that is well accompanied by a pronounced fruit profile with an evolving finish. Very good indeed, but is a couple of level behind to reach the higher tiers.

True Vineyard

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Easily the best wine I’ve tasted. I would forgo all wine just to have a glass of it once a year. Wow. — a month ago

True Myth Winery

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

A lovely, rich, full bodied wine. Too sweet and syrupy when first opened. Allow to breathe for 24 hours before drinking — 3 months ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Wow. The over shadowed ‘99 vintage from La Mission. Intensely aromatic, deep and complex. Dried black fruits, sweet red currants, worn leather, black truffles, bbq spices and wet forest floor. Finishes with excellent length, elegance and poise. A fantastic showing now and with emphasis that it has the stuffing to go at least 10 years before decline. A true dark horse vintage for La Mission. — 2 years ago

Hammell Wine Alliance

True Believer California Red Blend 2016

Ming L
9.5

The darkest and meatiest southern Rhone blend I’ve tasted with tremendous complexity. Explosive nose of black lack, blueberry jam, cured meat, grilled herbs, black pepper, dark chocolate, sweet soy source, and hint of violet. There is just the sense of Unami. Rich palate but structured like a skater that’s smooth, precise, and effortless.
I had the fortune to taste the 14’ True Believer 2 years ago, and I don’t really know what constitutes a reserve bottling, but this has more Syrah (53%).
