Cheers to all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! 🦃 Thanksgiving was my holiday to work this year, so I had four 12 hr. Shifts. 🤤
With not a lot of time to decant, to tired to really enjoy something complex and wanting a red wine I chose this wine from Costco. Simple fit the need tonight! Nothing offensive on the palate!
I am enjoying this wine; an every day simple sipper that presents with mild tannins, soft vanilla, and loads of red fruit, pomegranate and wet soil. Looking forward to our Thanksgiving meal tomorrow! 😁

Pinotage

Nicely balanced, lovely red fruits. Has with a slight tartness when first opened (not a bad thing, for me) and gets smoother when its had time to breathe (still just as lovely in a different way). Interesting and delicious! — 6 days ago

Epicuria Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Wine from Morocco 🇲🇦 , good in term of balance, and value for money. Paid the equivalent of € 15-17. For this price we have a beautiful expression of Cabernet-Sauvignon, « on the fruit » with discreet aging. Persistent finish and a nice overall balance.

Vin du Maroc, haut du panier en matière d’équilibre, et rapport qualité/prix. Payé l’equivalent de 15-17€ en cave. Pour ce prix on a une belle expression du Cabernet-Sauvignon, sur le fruit avec un élevage discret. Finale finement persistante et un bel équilibre général.

Chenin Blanc

This wine was so special. I know chenin blanc is a bit of a risk, but I had it in mind to pair with salty Chinese food, and found this VERY price-friendly organic bottle at my favorite wine store. It had none of the overt fruitiness or oiliness that sometimes comes with CB; rather, I think it was the perfect combo of the yellow apple richness of traditional CBs expressed in a very lean, dry, tart, wildly acidic sipper with just a hint of ginger spiciness. If you’ve read this far you can see I really loved this wine. 💛 — 11 days ago

Monro Merlot Blend 2018

Reviewed the ‘15 vintage previously. This has particularly red fruit. Red plums, hot raspberry- background of earth, smoke aka classic SA. would appreciate a softer texture. — 18 days ago

A new producer for us, purchased direct from the winery.
Nose displays pears, white flowers, and the slightest hint of volatility. The palate is muscular and demonstrates urgency when it hits the mid-palate. Powerful, zippy acidity gives way to honeycomb notes, without the sweetness. The finish is mineral-driven, with very little detectable oak treatment. Chablis lovers should take a good look at this example.

@Stef Van Der Vorst, yes, I never bothered to try until now. Glad I did. @Paul K, what’s special about their cabs? Thanks.

@Ron R maybe I was overeager to recommend generically, I’ve only ever had their 2014 Cab, but it was great. It’s 50% Spring Mountain and 50% Coombsville. It was great fruit, structure, and balance. After I found out it was, I could tie back to Spring Mountain and specifically 2014 vintage that I just had the Amici and SMVs of. My favorite, consistent note for Spring Mountain is dusty cherry and strawberry on the nose that translates to the pallet ending with dusty tannins. When it’s on ‘00, ‘01, ‘05, ‘06, ‘07... it makes for wine that are a little more old world, not big fruit (which I love too). I think Coombsville added some fruit and chocolate to the mix.
If you get your hands on one, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Love your reviews and I’m very much learning. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
