Cranberry jelly, a little caramel?, dances on my tongue, some spice like pink peppercorns. Yum! — 4 days ago

ÆRENA

Cabernet Sauvignon

Aerena Lean In 2017 cabernet sauvignon . Only $25 a bottle. Again another world wine of wonder by the people at Bespoke Wines. An amazing opening of blackberry and dark currant. There is a fig note as well. Like its big brother Narrator, The buttery note throughout the pallet is incredible. Lots of vanilla and even a little licorice in the middle. The finish is mildly dry with oak and cigarbox on the back of the palate. I want to buy a case of this! Wait a minute, I already did. ha ha! — 12 days ago

Definition Zinfandel 2017

GV
9.0

A really solid wine that has big black fruit with a subtle hint of sweetness and liquorice.

Black cherry, blackcurrant and blackberry flavours, with a hint of strawberry, combine to make this a very enjoyable glass on its own.
Paired with steak, asparagus and a rich home-made creamy mushroom sauce it delivers even more.

Old vine Californian Zinfandel that at £9.00 a bottle is just perfect.

Majestic Wine bought March 2020.

This beer is f-ing phenomenal. So much flavor and so tasty. Bright with a nice clean palate despite being hazy. Insanely well balanced. — a month ago

Formaglini Vineyards

La Quercia Block Pinot Noir 2016

15+ hr work days everyday this week call for a killer Pinot, some chicken and morel mushroom pot pie and a little Grateful Dead.

I am not familiar with Formaglini, but this Pinot makes a solid argument as to why I need to start paying attention to Oregon little more.

In the glass, this wine has an extremely light tint to it which is extremely misleading. The nose is full of vibrant red fruits, dirt, dried herbs and a little smoke that I’m all about. This leads to an extremely intense rush of big red fruit, white pepper, dirt and a little taste of the Rhône. The slight smokiness lingers for quite sometime. This is a really nice, balanced wine from a producer I’d love to explore a little more.

Think it’s time to dig into Oregon wines beyond Eyrie. Would love some suggestions. Been hearing a lot about the wines coming from Walter Scott.

@Shay A I’m on the Antica Terra mailing list but I’ve hesitated to buy some bottles without trying one of their wines first. Royal Blue sells the Ceras so I might need to go snag a bottle. Heard the Rose is insane. Heard fantastic things about Bergstrom too. Thanks!

@Arden Barnett : Price point can be tough, but Ceras is very mineral driven. I’ve got quite a few bottles of the rosé (it’s my favorite), and I still have one ‘14 left. Happy to open it whenever we get together to pop bottles next. And Bergstrom is fantastic...definitely more restrained than AT.

Il Falconieri

Los Olivos District 2014

F2 Wines Ghibellini Los Olivos District IL Falconieri Cabernet Franc 2014

This is a very tasty Cabernet Franc from Los Olivos District in California.

Showing blue and black fruits with wood, earth, vegetables, spices, tobacco leaf, bell pepper, light acetone, peppercorn and cola.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry and very gentle on palate with a tangy finish and soft tannins.

This 6 year old is spicy and interesting to drink by itself, or with food. A good quality wine.

I paired it with Brie cheese.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
