SHIRAZ baby!!! This is Terlato and Chapoutier 2013 Lieu-Dit Malafoff Shiraz from Australia of coarse. One of the best Shiraz wines I have ever had! Dark berries up front and a spicy chocolate cigar in the middle. The finish is very mild on the dry factor and leaves a thirst for more. It has Earth tones and a slight tartness on the end of the mid palate. I could chew this wine in my mouth it is so thick on the palate. Damn good wine !!!!!! I will buy more of it for sure! — 4 days ago
Sea spray, chamomile, green apple, green olive, a slight yeasty note and lemon rind.
Medium plus acid, medium bodied, medium alcohol, with a slight chew on the finish. — 2 months ago
Raisin and spice. Smokyness, like hickory and cedar. There’s a bit of chew to it, like the fatty part of the steak. Slight acidity, well balanced, touch of tartness. Just delightful. — 4 months ago
A mostly merlot Super Tusacan, some cab sauv and franc as well. Has a gentle smoothness that covers up some wilder, almost grilled notes. Nothing meaty, but has a good chew.
The value on this is terrific. — 8 days ago
Inky black color. 14.2% yikes! Firewater. Smells like wine barrels and licorice drops of both the red and black sort. Flavor is full and rich with complexity. Black tea, good berry pies, minerals and rocks. Plenty to chew on and savor. Nice inky streak as well. Bitter like olives and elderberry syrup. A big boy of a wine with some CA Petite Sirah flavors in it, but it is pleasing and fulfilling. Well worth the $10 it was on sale for. — 2 months ago
Sublime. Good chew. Light. Licorice and honey. Crisp. Bring me the head of a Dead Sea animal to go with this treat-Natto is an odd but perfect pairing. — 3 months ago
Good chew. Almost tastes fatty but in a good way — a month ago
I can almost chew this wine its so big and bold! This is Campo de Borja 2016 Alto Moncayo. The color is deep Burgundy. The legs are slow and thick. The bouquet, fields of lavendar and lilac. The initial palate is amazing!!!!! Huge blackberry, boysenberry and raspberry. Then there is a small hint of cherry in the background somewhere. You can tell these vines are really old. The mid palate is phenomenal. Spice and vanilla- yum! Lots of oak and earth. The thickness reminds me of a juicy filet mignon. The finish is dry and lingering with the feel of butter left behind. Time to serve with dinner:
Filet mignon, baked potato, mustard greens, and a french baguette. Happy St. Valentine’s day to me!!!!!!! — a month ago
