Columella Liberatus Castro Bonae Spei Shiraz Blend 2015

Thin but tight tannin seal, concentrated layered red and black fruits. Even can do no wrong, its a crowd pleaser. It's a blend so perhaps less daring than some of his others. — 2 hours ago

So this is from the time my wife graduated high school. Time flys but wine keeps getting better and reminiscing about the good ol’ days is the best part. Cheers. — 21 days ago

DAC En Cruzado Dão Branco White Blend 2019

Delicious stuff! Encruzado is my fav white Portuguese grape - it has personality. Quince, preserved lemon, herbaceous notes. Nice acidity and structured mouthfeel. Very nice — 22 days ago

Rozas 1er Cru Vino de Paraje Grenache 2016

Best with 13 days of Slow Decanting

Project created by Daniel Landi and Fernando Garcia in the Gredos Mountains. G for grenache. This wine is the product of biodynamic farming of 60 year old vines on granite slopes at 950 meters elevation. I loved this on release and now I want to check in on it’s progress

DAY1
Served with the Vinloq System
Great things on the nose but the palate was mostly closed up. Strawberries, tar, acid, tannins…

Let the remaining wine Slow Decant in my fridge

Day13
👃Red, lightly candied fruit with anise & mushroom broth. Violets and brambles. Lovely perfume. Gevrey-Chambertin?
👅Fruit, licorice tar, violets. Silky. Acid and tannins feel electric on my tongue. Earthy, savory, and persistent finish. Beautiful. Great nuance

Slow Decanting made a big difference. This just needs bottle age to further resolve the tannins and this will be stellar✨

A ridiculous value at purchase, word has quickly spread and now these are hard to find. But worth the effort 🍷
