Régnié Gamay 2018

Delectable Wine
9.2

Deep ruby. Fresh dark berries, cherry pie, candied violet and a suggestion of smoky minerals on the assertively perfumed nose. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering juicy blueberry, cherry compote, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that slowly tighten up with air. Finishes sappy, smooth and very long, showing persistent florality and fine-grained tannins that rise up slowly. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, October 2019) — a month ago

Antoine Arena

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. — 22 days ago

Sea Horse Winery

Antoine Tête de Cuvée Syrah Blend 2012

was hoping for wow and it is a wow.

10 years of marriage today.
things didn't go well all through. but we matured surprisingly well.
this is the oldest wine i had (in terms of years passed from bottling).

i was lucky to help again sorting 🍇 after 2019 harvesting at seahorse winery. it was Petit syrah this time.

after a hard day laboring (back hurt for two weeks following intensive yet pleasurable 'punch down') they said: pick a bottle

i took this 2012 gsm (sgm really) which was bottled same day.

72% syrah
16% grenache
12% mourvadre

14% ABV

dense red with some blueness and thick legs👀

green funkness, tobbaco, mushrooms, wet leaves and ripe black fruit 👃

medium + body.
high bursting acidity.

black fruit ruling with green notes, tartness and pepper. some sweetness felt at the back👄

long 🎯 with tannins that are soft and pleasant and take their time before leaving.

it took it's time.
opened and chilled in the refrigerator 2 hours before drinking.

started as: that is nice but no wowness.
as it warmed up and had more air it became what it's supposed to be:
complex balanced superb spicy juice.

not sure how much they charge but excellent vfm for sure.

on its own it was great after opening up.
sourdough bread with 🐐butter and unknown stinky yellow 🧀 made it juicier and spice was stronger.
great sicilian style home made caponata had the same effect.

seahorse winery getting a 🏆again? for shizzle.

same wine after 10 years more of marriage would probably be even better.
