Fattoria La Lecciaia (Pacini)

Toscana Sangiovese 2015

So approachable in the best of ways. Tart cherry, cranberry, herbs, tomato leaf and leather. As expected, wonderful with food. What a great daily drinker! The 2015 vintage shines brightly through this wine. — 3 days ago

PS Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1998

1998 Vintage. We really enjoyed this with great Italian food at Il Tegamino in Carmel, CA. We try to bring Italian wines to Italian restaurants as the food seems to really compliment the wines. — 18 days ago

@Ira Schwartz A lot more relaxing in 2018 w/o COVID. Carmel was too crowded with too many not wearing masks or improperly wearing them to be comfortable. At least we had a table away from the street.

The Modern Syrah 2017

A Santa Barbara County Proprietary Red Wine. Unfiltered and unfined. Entirely constructed of Estrella-clone Syrah from two ends of the Santa Rita Hills and a sprinkling of Viognier. Native-yeast fermented with 40% whole cluster inclusion and raised in large neutral barrels for 26-months. Matthias’ expression of great Syrah from a great Syrah growing region, cool coastal vineyards north of Santa Barbara. Recommended to a little above cellar temperature.

Young boysenberries. Steeping Darjeeling tea. A hint of barbecue smoke drifts by.

The color of a deep burgundy Chrysler Cordoba. Big, velvety mouthfeel, but not Corinthian leather.

Taste: Black cherries, just before 100% ripe. A touch of blueberry pie, but savory, not sweet. Finish: A finish of black pepper with a touch of cocoa nib at the last few touches of finish. Juicy, bustling tannins right to the point where you think they’re a touch too bold, but then the finish reaches over and says “I believe you were mistaken”.

Jazz trumpeter Jeremy Pelt with the track “I’ve Just Seen Her” on his album “The Art of Intimacy”. The Jazz Crusaders with the track “Young Rabbits” from their “Festival Album”, 1966, recorded live at the Newport and Pacific Jazz Festivals.

Clos De La Roilette

Cuvée Tardive Fleurie Gamay 2010

Just needed 3/4 years after release to shed some of that extra meat locker taste to it. Raspberry, dark cherry, Asian spices, bacon fat. Better with food.  — 2 days ago

Nice. Love this wine, '10 was the first vintage I started only buying it in mag. Got every year since.

They get to a certain point of maturity and stay there for a number of years. I’ve rarely had a bottle that taste the same for multiple years. Just doesn’t change. Nice bottle.

Huntington Pinot Noir 2016

This is comfort food Pinot. I paired tonight’s bottle with homemade chicken and biscuits veggie pie. Heaven! Perfect cool climate cherry forward wine with foresty flooriness. Also married well with the truffle Brie appetizer. Fall season delight! — 20 hours ago
