Vallée d'Aoste Prëmetta 2019

So when my friend first brought me this and I was like gourmet from Italy, I completely thought it wasn’t even going to be worthwhile. Boy was I wrong. The classic strawberry and light fruit with medium acid to provide structure. Deliciously intact with a short and sweet expression of the grape. I didn’t know it was possible but this wind definitely showcases its elegance. — 3 days ago

Vallée d'Aoste Petite Arvine 2019

I smell ginger spiced lemon herbs and palo santo sandalwood, fresh dill and fennel fronds. A full body sneaks in unnoticed under a salty high acid exterior.

Flavors with power and stay. Salted apples, sour pears.

Vinas Viejas Valle de la Orotova Listan Negro 2016

Alder Yarrow
9.2

Sometimes you just need a #volcanicwine. This one comes from the craggy, windswept Canary Islands of the northwest coast of Africa. Put on some Cesaria Évora and get ready for a whiff of smoky funk followed by deeply mineral flavors of plum and red berries, bitter herbs, and pulverized stone. Faint powdery tannins hang in a haze as the wine lingers with bitter licorice root and camphor wood notes in the finish. Made from old vines of Listan Negro, it’s a classical expression of the Canaries, but from a surprising source. The producers behind this brand are the Spanish cooperative CVNE and local producer Suertes de Marques who selected fruit from theor vineyards in Valle de Orotava on the island of Tenerife. 2016 Medianías Listan Negro Viñas Viejas, Valle de la Orotava, Canary Islands, Spain. ⁣ — 23 days ago

New addition to the inventory. Delicious mountain red. Nebbiolo clone with additional local grapes. If you like Cru Beaujolais and/or Mondeuse this is a wine for you. Lots of red berry fruit, purple flower and wet granite. Light chill and delicious on a summer evening. — 5 days ago

3V Valle de Parras Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

Really enjoyed this. Warm strawberry leather, blackberry, black cherry, and red plum sauce. Dusty earth, white pepper, pencil lead, hint of cocoa, and tobacco. Right at the intersection of old world earthiness with ripe (to slightly overripe) fruit. Excellent w Birria tacos. Decanted in advance.

Valle d'Aosta Pinot Noir 2019

Beautiful pinot - all spice and pure strawberry fruit. Fresh. Not much in the way of structure, but really quaffable. Reminds me of Sexton Applejack in red fruit purity. Buy. — 4 days ago

Light, fruity, earthy. Solid blend that was better with food. Probably needed some more time to open up. — 21 days ago
