Atlas Bear

Chenin Blanc

Costco Advent Day 10 - I am rating this one on the high end! This is my favorite white so far out of all of the wines in the advent box! It taste like a riesling (almost), I’m surprised I like it because it is a little on the sweet side - tart aftertaste! I really like it! — a month ago

Domaine du Coulet (Matthieu Barret)

Petit Ours Gris Côtes du Rhône Syrah Grenache Blend 2019

Syrah is your creative friend with interesting suggestions. Say hi to Teddy, Le Petite Ours, The Little Bear. 100% Syrah of purple chew you can see and feel.

Generously aromatic. Punches of violets and lavender and raspberry syrup. Metallic, salty, grippy in the mouth.

Black pepper and blueberries with thick skins you can gnaw for a bit.

Cute Teddy. Sneaky, serious Syrah.

Allegrini

Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2017

I may be biased going into this review because the Allegrini Valpolicella (‘17) just happened to be the perfect pick for the mood and tone of the night. So bear with me as I attempt to not go overboard.

Even on the first pour it’s lush and soft but lively, with notes of rhyme, a very pronounced lining of berries that frames the expectation. The pour on the palate, even the first glass on the table is a soft and yet juicy combination of those very berries framed by soft tannins.
...it’s just a joy. Upon decanting the Corvina that’s the main player not only softens and “smiles”- but opens upon the palate with deeper and richer notes. For such an affordable wine. This thing is joy in a glass.

The finish is what I think is the only MINOR gripe regarding the wine from this vintage. It’s good and chewy but a little abbreviated.

But it too grows with time to breathe.

Anyway: loved it.

Cakebread Cellars

Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

A blend of 95% Cab Sauv & 5% Cab Franc, from Howell mountain, deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruit, oak, floral and sweet spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, plum and ripe jammy cherry with notes of cedar, cacao, tobacco and lots of vanilla spice! Fine soft tannins, well balanced with acidity, long finish ending with fruit, oak, sweet spice, with floral earthy presence, elegant! It’s perfect now, should continue to age well for next decade. Sorry to say, it’s my last bottle! — a month ago
