La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah

Superb. Needed something to stand up to a bone in rib eye as well as an unruly 1 year old. Deep garnet color. Lot of berries on the nose with hints of smoke and bacon fat. Beautiful long tannic finish. — a year ago

Piancarda Montepulciano 2017

Made some homemade sausage and some greens. Grilled it and opened this for a Marchegiani dinner. Not as unruly as a few vintages I be had, but very good. Rosso conero is the DOC. All montepulciano. — 2 years ago

Killer nose out of the gates. Blackberry and mega tar. Smell the ink. But also mega mineral. Concentrated and deep with mega tarriness and inky blackberry fruit. Big slatey tannins but not unruly as there is a sense of refinement here. Juicy and deep. This is very very fine. Has 20+ years. — 3 years ago

Cuvée Rare Champagne Blend

Decidedly less brioche than a recent 06, more lemon rind. Less unruly / youthfully exuberant vs. others in class of 08. Developed nicely over the duration of dinner. — a month ago

Three Valleys Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2017

Not sure if Draper is still making these wines, but Ridge has been so consistent & solid over the years... and this affordable kitchen sink blend is delicious: dark & rich, big extraction here w/mouth coating tannins and gobs of brambly red & black berry fruit. Def some oak in this bad boy, hi ABV as well. Bit unruly right now - probably needs a nap for a few years. — a year ago

Colline Lucchesi Calafata

Majulina Red Blend

Wonderful unruly and spicy, but lightly flattering and later somewhat creamy. Makes you dream sitting in Tuscan vineyards in evening sun. 700 Celsius grilled Flank steak of “werdenfelser weiderind” - violett asparagus in rosemary butter - “Haferwurz”, hazelnut oil - bob dylan on vinyl, make wine not war- a perfect wine now — 2 years ago

The Tower Series Norton 2018

8.9

Man I just love Norton - it is such a fun, expressive wine. It’s loud & boisterous and downright unruly, but it’s uniquely American. Inky and brimming with black fruit galore & then menthol, medicinal, licorice, forest floor, squirrely spice just pour out of the glass. So expressive. On the palate it is voluptuous w/plenty of acidity & tannins, it’s just a bit clumsy, but it means well. Black fruit compote with kitchen sink spices envelope the palate. Decent finish. Don’t know what the hell you’re supposed to eat with this stuff but it’s a lot of fun. — 8 months ago

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

White Horse Red Blend 2015

Very small production NY Lake District red blend of 80% cab franc & 20% merlot. Nothing broad here. Fine wild blackberries & eucalyptus, untamed & unruly. Truly intriguing & delicious—& at 20$, a steal. 2nd bottle. — 3 years ago

Blew my mind. Restrained but powerful Bordeaux blend.. Sleek and penetrating with fruit that rides an acidic racehorse. A true thoroughbred.

Glad you enjoyed so much! Though no Bordeaux blends with that much cab franc-unless we talk Cheval Blanc, which is usually a 55/40/5 or so blend.
