Napa Valley Zinfandel 2016

This is a very sophisticated Zin. Sophisticated as in raised-on-classical-but-moved-to-big-city-and-got-into-BillieEilish-but-go- waltzing-for-fun way. Shall I be textbook? Let’s.
Eye: medium ruby red thick big ol’ tears
Nose: leaps out! Licorice red/blue/black fruit but mostly like stewed dried cranberries and spice and vanilla bean
Tongue (mine) dry, medium acid, medium plush ripe tannins, high booze level (checking to see if I was correct)ohhhh 14.8! So yeah high abv.
Body is medium plus. Intensity medium plus. It’s all ripe and raisined purple plum, black cherries, blackberries and all of these fruits are dried and ripe plus a handful of blueberries and a slosh of vanilla bean liqueur and some allspice or even...velvet falernum. Finish is medium plus.
This is a Zin I want in my life forevs

@Ellen Clifford you have a way of writing reviews as if I'm hearing you speak in person. Very talented in a quirky way. An enjoyable read.

MAGMA Etna Nerello Mascalese 2016

The 2016 'Magma' Rosso is the "Grand Vin" from Cornelissen and was sourced from the Contrada Barbabecchi, which was planted in 1910 and situated at 910 meters above sea level. The Barbabecchi Vineyard is positioned at a North-North East exposure, and consists of ungrafted 100+ year old vines of Nerello Mascalese. The resultant wine is simply magnificent, as it slowly unwinds and begins to release a wonderful range of aromatics, including dried dark cherries and ripe red plums, which are woven together with exotic spices, eucalyptus, dried florals, dusty leather, blood orange and a subtle hint of cedar all taking shape beautifully in the glass. This impeccably structured wine continues to impress on the palate with its remarkable overall depth and precise concentration through the incredibly long finish. While already showing so much, this has a tremendous amount of potential to age beautifully for many years to come. Overall, this is another brilliant effort from Frank Cornelissen, and is amongst one of the most fascinating wines you will find in all of Italy. — a month ago

Susucaru Seventh Edition Rosato Malvasia Blend 2018

Dry Rose, can taste the red skins but flavor reads more like a white wine. Pairs nicely with chicken. — 21 days ago

Gargiulo Vineyards

Frank Wood Ranch Oakville Chardonnay 2016

Always love Gargiulo wines! This one probably needs some age though. Very vibrant and crisp, but not overly deep. Citrus flavors dominate with a medium finish. I enjoyed it, but probably on the lower side of QPR at $65. — 12 hours ago

Released this 18 month early. IMO -Should come with a warning- “Drink at your own risk”. Better in another year? Very much enjoyed the 14 & 15 . Was hoping the 16 would follow. Time!?!
