Sweet Lullaby

Mt. Brave

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

I’d put this in the category of “supremely balanced”. It could age another year or so but the tannins are like the harmony to the melody of the gourmet grape jam notes. Normally saying a wine reeked of grape jam would be an insult but this artisan grape jam. With a hit of booze in it. That you’d spread on brioche. Not the most complex cab but really lovely. Soothing. Lullaby wine. Perfect pop n pour with a friend to round off a busy Monday. — 6 years ago

Good to hear all these things, thank you @David T and @Severn Goodwin ! Hmm an amarone sounds like it should be, oh, delectable, sorry it’s disappointing! No wine for me for awhile. I’m off to perform Shakespeare. All in a day...

@Ellen Clifford I'd kill for a Zenato Amarone tonight. You should find one, no disappointments.

Bodegas Altanza

Lealtanza Reserva Club Rioja Tempranillo

"And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby" A good Spanish wine from Rioja. Thick texture, soft tannins and plenty of fruit.

Macerato Sui Lieviti Vino Frizzante Pinot Grigio

Strong acid and fizz at first sip that quickly dissolves into a mellow lullaby of an aftertaste. Not very sweet, vegetal, medium body, herby- a little chive-y, a bit salty even which is such a nice contrast to what you expect of such a beautiful peach color! — 5 years ago

Emmanuel Brochet

Le Mont Benoit 1er Cru Extra Brut Champagne Blend

lazer sword bubbly, quite nutty and apple peel.

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 1979

Fully mature, and holding together wonderfully. A lighter vintage for this, very raspberry fruit character, with a spicy, moderately funky, congruous nose. Not overly complex, but she floats across the palate like a lullaby, no edges remain. Still quite vibrant, a delicious treat - a toast to one of history's star vignerons. — 9 years ago

Ventoux Rosé Blend 2017

Thicker mouthfeel than many rosés. Well-balanced with a pleasant bitterness on the finish. Strawberry, guava, and hints of wet gravel. — 6 years ago

May not be for everyone but the complex vanilla, orange, and nut notes really stand out. — 9 years ago
