Celler del Roure

Vermell Monastrell Blend 2019

A juicy Valencia blend but restrained at 13%. A bit like a new world cab franc, more on the fruit & less funk spectrum. Aged in buried mud amphora. — 4 days ago

Ochota Barrels

The Fugazi Vineyard Grenache 2019

Crisp, cool, tart, stemmy and fresh.
Raspberries, cranberries, mineral funk, peppery and spicy garrigue and cold rocks (if that makes any sense…), as opposed to the hot terracotta tiles I often get in many other Grenaches.
This has a very cool-climate feel to it, rather delicate and refreshing. Like a Bojo from Oz. Lovely!

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2005

Whatever you want to call me , Rayas fanboy, groupie, fanatic, I am guilty as charged.
After a night of drinking some very special burgundy and champagne , I pulled this out as the evenings festivities were coming to an end. No decant just a pop and pour . Like a great racehorse it overcame many challenges and handicaps before it emerged victorious . Meteorites of cherry, raspberry and mint assault your nose. In the mouth, pure red fruit is joined by pepper and earth where it all combines to stage a “sit in “ that does not end. A gift from Bacchus

And now Syrah is grown in Germany (not a joke) and soon Grenache in Norway (a joke).

Ira, I am with you. I love Rayas and am fortunate to have a few. The prices, though, are nuts!

Domaine Santa Duc

Gigondas Red Rhône Blend 2010

2010. Needed time to open up and then paired really well with an assortment of mild Indian lamb dishes. It was nice to have wine after a long weekend of Pilsners, DIPAs, Sour Ales, and Stouts. — 8 days ago

Matthiasson

California Rosé Blend 2021

Is there a better rosé out there? Seriously, let me know if you have a suggestion because this stuff is flames and hits at just 11.5 ABV which is arguably the most important quality in a pink wine. — 6 days ago

Vinos Comando

Rozas 1er Cru Vino de Paraje Grenache 2018

Exceptionally light extraction, high toned and infused. Crushed raspberry and cranberry, highly floral almost geranium, dried orange, black tea, dried herbs, potpourri, crushed rock, white pepper, 4-EP. Nice to see some definition fruit return this vintage but definitely microbial and marked by it. — 14 days ago
