Matt Parish

The 24 Contra Costa County Zinfandel 2019

This hides its 15.5 very well. Nose has blackberry fruit and cracked black peppercorn in equal measure. In the mouth it’s expansive, with excellent concentration and a rich texture that hides the soft tannin very well. Long, pure finish. Nicely done. — a month ago

Duarte Vineyard Zinfandel 2019

Bold and powerful Zin with a great palate of dark and red fruits, oaky tobacco, and lingering finish. Curious to see what some light aging might add — a month ago

La Badina

Costa della Sesia Vespolina 2018

Lyle Fass
9.4

A superb Vespolina. Unreal nose of blackberry pastille, cherry flower, spices, herbs and tons of lavender. What a nose. Gorgeous. Clearly defined. Soil tones and intense fruit on the nose. A sick nose. Really blown away. Palate has that same clearly defined fruit with typical rustic Vespolina tannins and awesome jelly donut fruit with huge mineral and terrific freshness. Nose becomes pretty floral as well with air. Really refined for Vespolina and super long finish and wonderful fruit purity on the finish. So wonderful and La Badina’s secret weapon.

With air this has gone from 9.3 to 9.4. Stunning depth and texture and extraordinarily long finish. Just awesome.

8.9

Finally gained access to my wine cellar and found this SB from Sicily: showing beautifully with dark straw color and sporting that unique spearmint note along with lemon oil, lanolin and late summer grass. Firm acidic backbone and oily fat quality on palate. Just really fantastic w/Thai. — a month ago

Thinks drinks like a light, racier version of Evangelho Zin. It’s effortless but with striking depth and clarity.. Vines planted in the 1890s. Killer. — a month ago
