Panizzi

Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2019

This Italian white wine sports a nose full of minerals and hard citrus with a nice savory streak to back it up. The straw-colored juice has a fantastic salinity on the palate, which is mostly minerals. The mouthfeel is a bit fuller than expected, but acidity is bright and fresh. Pair this wine with seafood, especially shellfish or a creamy chowder.

Rougarou McCormick Ranch Vineyard Carignan 2018

Cloudy magenta in the glass, there’s a unique fruit profile here... intense nose of pomegranate, cranberry, and crunchy underripe fruit. There’s also an unusual funk here - not barnyard or earth, but an almost cheesy or buttermilk thing. Low tannin, high acid, decent length. Wife hated it, and I get why... I loved it with a slight chill! — 22 days ago

Poggioaicieli Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2015

We buy this wine a lot. They deliver to the Bible Belt yet this bottle was weird. The cork read Louis Jadot. It’s clearly Italian wine. I inquired about this and learned corks come from Portugal.
I’m literally consuming grapes whilst dropping knowledge you all prolly knew. 💁🏻‍♀️

@Riccardo L. Someone told me Louis Jadot made a surplus of corks. Sounds odd but 🤷🏻‍♀️

Fine Disregard Wine Company

Pato Vineyard Mataro 2017

A beautiful light cherry red color in the glass. The nose blooms with floral notes, dried cherries, and soft herbs. This is one of those wines that you would file under easy drinking or fun, but that’s no reason to not take it seriously. After getting plenty of air, it’s so inviting and gracious. Perfectly sweet with just the right amount of fruit, it always keeps an even keel. Layered fruit and spices on the mid palate. Raspberry and cherry are dominant on the palate, along with oak, herbs, and spice. A touch of leather and violets round things off. Tiny production but a truly outstanding wine. If you like standard California Mourvèdre then you may be looking in the wrong place. This is so far above the norm. — 14 days ago

Peter Martin Ray Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

I had this tucked away in the cellar and finally pulled it out. What a pleasant surprise. Clean, bright red fruits with plenty of acidity balanced by a few earthy, tertiary notes. Wonderfully enjoyable. I’m glad I have one more bottle! — a month ago
