Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

Why not my favorite vintage so far, I feel this carries the warmth well. Rich and ripe without pushing the limits too much. The extra SY and MO components lend themselves well and this has some flash and darkness that bring a wild side to it all. Ive found some ‘17s to have significant brett but I think this balances well. Tannins are ripe but could use some more time to integrate a touch and soften their chew. Ripe black cherry compote, Chambord, roasted plums, animal, sweet spice and clovey layers of brett. 60 GR 20 SY 18 MO 2 CIN — a year ago

Cuvée Lucia Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Sangiovese 2009

Red Mountain is a sleeper site for the blood of Jove. Classic profile of tangy sour cherry, some spice and black tea over a nice solid tannic backbone. Tiny bit of tar on a nice medium-long finish. Drink up if you have this rarity...the prime time is now! Cin cin! — 4 years ago

Vignealte Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2013

Unsure why the low scores..?
This is a lovely Amarone,
With a nose of barnyard, and graphite. With a licorice intro, Tobacco, black cherry, truffle, slate, rich, over-ripened prune.
Dense and dark with an immensely weighty mouthfeel.

Montefalco Sagrantino 2014

Really well balanced black fruits, subdued acids and little oak. You can tell this was made from a younger generation, wanting the wine to speak for itself without too much manipulation. Thanks to the friends who brought it from the vineyard in Italy,.

Domaine d'Aupilhac

Cuvée Aupilhac Languedoc Mourvedre Blend 2016

Haven’t had any D’Aupilhac in a long time, a most pleasant reminder of how great this address is in the Languedoc for terroir driven wines. 30 MO 25 SY 25 CAR 10 CIN. Deep purple with gorgeous magenta accents, sun-drenched black cherry and berry fruit, blood orange, loaded with garrigue, baked stones across the palate. Reminiscent of fur and exotic spices. Young but very promising, tannins are powerful and suave, such great value here. I love the Mourvèdre backbone and muscles this has. Lip smacking! Day 3: still firing 😎 — 2 years ago
