Rosu Sec Merlot 2017

Wow I thought it was a pomerol... 😱 All the markers are here: pencil shavings, black currant, blackberry, a tiny touch of leather and tar too. The only thing that's a bit different is a tiny green note too (green pepper bell) that's uncommon in pomerol and around there. The palate is still reminiscent of the pomerol style except that it's a bit thiner, and less opulent than a pomerol. The acid backbone is great, there is some blackcurrant, some oaky notes too. Gentle grainy tannins kick in the rear in a very subtle way before a long black currant, leathery finish with a tiny meat juice, salty touch in the end. I could have mistaken it for a sattelite pomerol in a heartbeat... Second solid Moldovan wine in a week 🤔 — 2 months ago

Blanc de Blanc Chardonnay 1995

26 year old Santa Cruz Blanc de Blanc.17 years Triage according to label. Some sediment noticeable.

Dark gold color, surprisingly still has some bubbles. Cork broke during opening, corkscrew to the rescue. Notes are toasty, yeasty, and a bit funky in the finish (not horrible, ?rubber-ish, hard to describe, food would hide).

Good for curious geeking, not luxury seeking.

Echinoctius Red Blend 2017

Great Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from Ștefan Vodă. 2050 bottles produced, 30 months in oak barrels. Nut husk, sour cherry, black currant, clove, vanilla, licorice. Oak influence is heavy and is not well integrated yet. Very young. Typical powerful Ștefan Vodă style. Has potential, score doesn't account for that. — a year ago

Another bottle the algorithm at delectable could not identify, so you know it’s good. Dried fruits and some of that meatiness we all love cinsault for. — 2 years ago
