Hamlet Vineyards

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Like mountain spring water: pure & natural. Nothing contrived here - just clean / pure varietal taste. Northern Italy’s Sangiovese or Spain’s Tempranillo take notice - this build is legit and coming for your market share!! Medium weight with balance / structure with dried & fresh fruit elements. A true gem for mid-week cuisine. Shaps is a genius not to muck up Virginia Hamlet’s work in the vineyard. — a month ago

Ziereisen

Jaspis Pinot Noir 2017

Tight on open.

Has some oak. I’d give this 3 years.

Palate is intense cherry. Juicy. Great grip.

Will be very good in 3 years.

90 minutes in this is very good. That ziereisen intensity. Wow. Has that savory quality. Nose is getting that plummy spicy elegance. Ziereisen genius.

Bought from fass selections.

Castello Romitorio

Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2018

Over delivering super Tuscan. Wacky genius blend of petit Verdot and syrah. Works beautifully. Leather and violet purple fruit with fresh acidity and velvety tannin are super refreshing and complex. Thoroughly enjoyed this wine. Complemented a slow cooked ragú beautifully. — a month ago

Guillaume Gilles

Cornas Syrah 2015

9.7

Oh baby is this in the zone. Nose is incredible. Wafting aromas of black olive, black berry fruit with a crystalline purity to it. So dense. So aromatic. Just killing it. Wow. Stunning clarity. Had good luck with Gilles recently. Amazing palate. Just unreal fruit and it’s everywhere! Just saturates with granite infused juicy, lip smacking insanity. So dazzlingly pure. The granite expression is crazy. What a finish. So complex and has that extra that makes it a great vintage. Unreal depth and concentration. Holy shit. This is total genius. — a month ago

Love Red North Coast Carignan Blend 2019

Representin' B-Town in the house
Junior Mafia, mad flavor
Uh, uh, yeah, aight...kinda works? 😝 it’s got that juicy, juicy fruit, but maybe more like the crystalline clarity of a jolly rancher. Black cherry, a little red fruit jelly, touch of grassiness and some bright ass notes. Love it

Philip Lardot

kontakt White Blend 2019

Müller Thurgau, as the name implies, with some skin contact. Not an ‘orange’ wine but stilll maintains a pale straw color. Notes of raw almond and maybe bruised apple. Bone dry. Philip Lardot is the apprentice to Mosel/Riesling genius Ulli Stein. His winemaking style seems to be more experimental or exploratory than Stein’s. I’m loooking forward to trying more of his wines in the future. — a month ago

Peter Lauer

Unterstenberg Ayler Kupp Saar Riesling 2015

Unsurprisingly, delectable misrepresents / mis-names most of Peter Lauer’s brilliant biodynamic off-dry Saar Riesling’s. Granted, they are a potentially confusing bunch, yet well worth the effort to study, as he’s simply a genius and his wines are literally delectable! Lots of other reviews for this wine, but under the wrong name, oh well! Happiness in a glass, I love me my Lauer! The Unterstenberg has got some powerlifting muscles. — a month ago
