Cabernet Syrah Blend

ÀMaurice Cellars

àRose Estate Rose Blend 2017

Estate Rose Syrah. Very light pink, excellent clarity. Notes of red fruit, flowers, dust, sage and Provencal herbs. Cherry flavor with length, dry, lemon-orange finish with slight skin astringency. "Lightly done" seems to be the design principle, but there is a lot of fruit and varietal expression running through this wine. Paired interestingly (imperfectly) with Humboldt Fog goat chèvre cheese and woven wheat (Triscuit) crackers. Pricey, so you should expect more value delivered. Bad pairing on my part, but pretty good rose. — 3 days ago

Capa media-alta. En nariz se percibe la barrica y cuero. En boca se percibe acaramelado en la entrada. Algo corto. Es agradable. Algo peculiar y distinto. Me gusta bastante — 3 days ago

AG nailed the notes for this wine, so I won’t duplicate. But on the nose and palate, I also detect kirsch liqueur, hints of licorice and anise. This wine has not moved since it was bottled. It presents with purity and power. Easily possesses another 20 years of runway ahead of it. Sheer ecstasy in a glass. My favorite Rhône producer. — 3 days ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

I’m Not Drinking Any £#ƒ€!¢ Merlot! Blend 2016

These are Night 2 notes. A little smoky underbrush note accents some nice plummy fruit. Very Right Bank-like. Everything in balance in the mouth. Some cracked-stone minerality introduces the fruit. A little pepperiness in the mouth from the alcohol shows through, but it may simply be because it’s warm tonight. A bit of tannin to add some structure, but the finish is all beautifully pure and elegant Merlot fruit. Great value. — 13 days ago

Columbia Valley Syrah Rosé 2017

This one was just fine! The nose was chevre cheese, cut strawberries, gooseberry, unripened peppercorn, gravel, saline. Additional swirling revealed apricot, floral Rose, Floral tea. The Taste was dried strawberry, salted red fruit medley, orange rind, cranberry juice, rain-runoff, lime juice. This was lively but level-headed, with heavy minerality in the back to balance the fruit and citrus and to keep you thirsty. Also, on the other end, it's vibrancy kept me energized rather than feeling like I was just licking a wet limestone. The Empty Glass smelled strongly of peppery creamy cheese. — 20 hours ago

Baglio di Grisi

Terre Siciliane Syrah 2016

Baglio di Grisi 2016 nero d’avolo from Sicily -DOC. The bouquet is Blackberry cobbler after a 45 min decant. The initial palate is a beautiful blackberry and cherry fruit. There is a blast of spice and pepper! Just like a shiraz. This is the Shiraz of Sicily. The mid palate also brings on some oak. Then the finish leaves a sweet buttery dry finish. OMG This is my new favorite wine because it’s only $13 and the taste is incredible. I am buying a case of this. Now I want to blend this with a cab! — 15 days ago

@todd herron DPM there are so many great Old World wines. Mrs A and I like to explore the labels from off the beaten path produced generally by families that simply love good wines. We been to California several times and although there are many great wines produced there it is hard to meet the actual vintners and just talk a walk the vineyard. Cheers 🎂
