A Vigne Rouge Pinot Noir 2015

Beautiful pork loin and roasted veg in the new pizza-plus outdoor oven. Delicious meal. Very enjoyable wine. Might like a bit more pow if I’m being picky. Dana says, not pow, but more fuller palette if she’s being picky. — 12 hours ago

Cerreto Guidi

Message in a Bottle Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2013

A very good wine by Sting’s crew. The initial nose was unique to say the least. I kept getting hints of burnt rubber (like the smell of a brake stand on new summer tires) and campfire, as it breathes it releases a beautiful bouquet of blackberries, bing cherries, forest floor and baking spices. It’s very smooth and well rounded. Lovely dark fruit on the palate. Highly recommend. — 22 days ago

@Sharon B What vintage is your case? This bottle I enjoyed last night was 2013 and it was very good. Wondering if I need to avoid a specific year?

@Shawn Thompson Shawn I read your note to Mrs A telling her that you’re at a higher level of wine sophistication than me and she said write the wine shop names down. Thanks have a great weekend Cheers 🍷

@Shawn Thompson mine was a 2011. I was thinking the same thing! I had one or two bottles before I bought the case and they were good.

Domaine Thillardon

Moulin a Vent Gamay

fun bouquet, smells like a freshly baked strawberry or raspberry pie being served in clean outdoor mountain air. palate is zippy raspberry combined w/ stones and crushed rocks. love the earthiness and outdoorsiness of this wine. would describe it as a lean muscle mass wine, wastes no time going right to the mid palate and then has a nice long plummy finish. probably even better in a couple years as it unwinds. — 7 days ago

Excellent. I like 2014 and 2016 for Beaujolais but 2015 less so.

2015 was a bigger year and is just a bit too non traditional in terms of its expression. 2014 and 16 are both much more classically expressive.

I chase Zinfandel and caught this one. Limited production and tough to find so if you spot one, buy it. Excellent balance, ripe and bright - drink now or save in you cellar. — 4 months ago
