Pleasant surprise in Carlton Landing! Treynor and I watched the sunset at this beautiful location. Would love to try again at a slightly cooler temperature. — a month ago

Brick Pink Wine of the Sun & Earth Vin Gris Tuilé Central Coast Rosé Grenache Blend 2013

What a trip. So many weird words came up: burnt caramel, raisins, bourbon, nutty, dried mangos, Sherry, bananas foster, plum liquor, orange blossom. Paired amazing with fleur du maquis cheese. — 5 years ago

Carco Patrimonio Nielluccio 2008

Rustic and developed. Stewed plums, medicinal black cherry, maquis herbs, muddy soil, wet stoneware pottery, tobacco and tomato leaf. Palate is intense, concentrated, and shows younger than the nose. 14% alcohol isn’t hiding, but is nearly balanced by silty tannin and juicy acidity. Rounder and darker than the Italian Sangiovese which may or may not be genetically related. Interesting wine, well paired with a casual bolognese style pasta. — 2 years ago

Domaine Giacometti

Cru des Agriates Patrimonio Rouge Nielluccio Grenache 2013

Great value for this rustic Patrimonio. Leathery grip, lots of resinous maquis, some granite crunch, and a hint of wild animal blood. One of the best Corsican values and best value in Patrimonio. — 5 years ago

Domaine Giacometti

Batolaccio Cru des Agriate Patrimonio Vermentino 2018

A textural beauty - ripe fruit and tons of maquis herbs, with a heavy saline quality and mouthfeel hinting at oiliness. Enjoyed with lunch at Antoine Arena’s house (lucky us). Part of a full Giacometti lineup tasting. — 2 years ago

Clos Canarelli

Corse Figari Red Blend 2014

Smoky, chewy, black-fruited, maquis, granite, yet quite refined. A very classy expression of an extreme island terroir. — 5 years ago

An extraordinary example of Chilean Cabernet Franc. Many years to go but soft and supple now. It's a treat — 5 years ago
