It's wines and grapes like these that make me love Italy. A nearly forgotten grape "Longanesi" that out of chance began propagating on the property of a winery!
Earthy, rich and funky. Notes of black cherry cola with a hint of vanilla.
Black tea on the nose
Herbacious and medicinal on the nose. Fairly rustic (smokey), dense and concentrated fruit. — 25 days ago
Excellent inexpensive french rosé. If you have the chance to try it, do it — a month ago

Took a chance on this when it was 50% off ($20 out the door) - and with fingers crossed I opened this and was greeted with that unmistakable dusty cherry flavor mingled w/violets and damp soil. Mid weight on palate w/decent acidity & tannins & respectable length on finish. Adding .2 for QPR — a month ago
2020/5/5 with grilled lamb leg heart from a Lulu Peyraud / Richard Olney recipe and grilled zucchini. This certainly had the inimitable Northern Rhone bottle bouquet going, though it’s also quite lithe and red fruited, as opposed to deep and dark, with prominent acidity. It reminds you of the diversity in Northern Rhone terroirs - and that (if I recall) the Chance estate St. Jospeh is from relatively young vines — 6 days ago
Last weekend I had the chance to open up the 2012 Col Solare Red Wine (WWB, 94) which is absolutely singing in its silky state now at the eight year mark. Following a two hour decant the wine showed marvelous graphite, and anise aromas, followed by tones of tar and milk chocolate that all melded brilliantly in the glass. The palate showed really good viscosity and depth with a pillowy texture. Brandy soaked cherries, pipe tobacco, blackberry compote and cocoa powder with sagebrush accents all collide on the palate. The long, dark fruit and mineral-driven finish completes this stunning wine. A long-ager, showing a good combination of weight and poise, this glorious Col Solare is truly hitting its stride and has another decade of life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2030- 94 — 24 days ago
Definitely give this Cava a chance if you’re a Champagne snob. Sweet mountain florals with hints of yeast on the nose nicely complements flavors of limestone, honeysuckle, and jasmine. Fine effervescence enhances the overall experience. Paired well with sticky pineapple ginger chicken and rice. — a month ago
