Solis Vis Monferrato Bianco Timorasso 2018

The Solis Vis is 100% Timorasso grape. The white wine is a pale straw yellow in the glass. Its nose gives off a wonderful salinity, with lime and minerals aplenty. The acidity is fine and the palate has citrus, apricots and peaches bursting forth. I’m always a sucker for any Italian white wine not named Grigio, and this one does nothing to dissuade me. — a month ago

@Randy Fuller Randy thanks but it’s very quiet up here other than when the occasional grizzly bear drops by. Have a great week. Cheers

Dry Red SB Tavkveri 2017

Reminds me of something in the middle of Pinot noir and Sangiovese. Initially dried cherries and spice. With a long decant (4+ hours), revealed more ripe, dark fruits. Long finish. Accurate name vis a vis “dry”; also acidic. — 2 months ago

Si Vis Pacem, Para Vinum Negrette 2018

Great. First time having Negrette variety. Very easy to drink but still has a slight spiciness to it like a Cab Franc. Definitely want to buy again. — 4 months ago

Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Spätlese Riesling 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

As usual, this is the one dry Hexamer wine to perpetuate the tradition of Prädikat, and that is done solely to satisfy the Norwegian importer who takes all of it. (All to one country, yes; but this has become a high-volume cuvée by estate standards.) The fruit comes from the Eisendell as well as from a site known as Grosser Stein for the huge stone that marked the boundary between the holdings of the Rheingrafen (counts) and those of the Disibodenberg monastery. Picked nearly a month earlier than was the highly-impressive 2016, this weighs-in at 11.9% alcohol, and that shows in an attractive sense of levity and spring vis-à-vis Hexamer’s other dry Rieslings of this vintage. Fresh lime, apple, piquant aromas as well as a juicy, crisp-edged and pip-tinged presence on the glossy palate serve for penetrating. Subtly bitter but cooling and stimulating notes of melon rind compound the sense of crunch and piquancy while lovely, bittersweet inner-mouth perfume adds allure. The combination of vivacity and refreshment with floral and mineral intrigue renders the buoyant, bell-clear, seriously-sustained finish next-sip compelling.

La Mascota Mendoza Cabernet Franc 2016

This took awhile to unfold -showing great depth after 90mins w/varietally correct expression of red cherry mingled with black pepper & herbaceous funk. There is a certain elegance here, bare minimum acidity required, smooth tannins - not more Alc than I’d prefer but overall quite impressive vis a vis price point . — 3 months ago
