Blackberry, sour cherry. Nebbiolo-esque tannins at fraction of price. But grittier than prior vintages. Still great with chicken parm and spaghetti. — 23 days ago

Evangelo Viognier Syrah 2018

Again a wonderful showing. Full bodied with sweet beginning but softened with nice red fruit. Great balance. Had it over two days and it was on it’s best on the second day. Further cellaring will be rewarding — 10 days ago

Delicious. Reminds us of an old school Chablis with some Sancerre notes. This is specifically from Macedonia btw. — a month ago

Drama Red Dry Wine Red Blend 2018

Not familiar with this producer. Really pleasant red blend. Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%) and Sangiovese (10%). New World in style. The plushness of the Merlot really shows through but the density of the Cabernet and the acidity of the Sangiovese keeps the wine extremely well balanced. Deep ruby color. Aromas and flavors of sweet red and black fruit are complimented by pleasant notes of vanilla, baking spices, tobacco and just a hint of green pepper. Finish is full but just a little short. Otherwise, everything else comes together well. Nice compliment to our take out pasta. — a month ago
