Heroine Michael Mara Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

With a flavor and complexity equivalent to any French grand cru, this is a fantastic Chardonnay. The nose is slightly funky with a mineral driven undercurrent and notes of star fruit, asian pear, apricot and wet rocks, but the flavor is BOLD, with a front of fruit forward acidity, with a creamy mid-palate and a lingering, slightly mineral finish. Everything that comes out of the Michael Mara Vineyard is spectacular, and this is not exception. Like liquid gold! — 15 days ago

Guiry Sangiovese 2017

Terrific biodynamic Sangiovese from eastern Romagna. Great funkiness to this. Relatively light, tinged with orange- this packs tremendous flavor with a long finish. Has that bubbly feel on the tongue. I love it — 5 months ago

Tenuta Mara

Maramia Sangiovese 2015

Superbe fruit rouge pur et exubérant. C'est très harmonieux et ça se boit tout seul, tout en étant profond et vibrant. Vraiment très bon! — 10 months ago

At house of Mara and Nicola. Big fruit/oak corposo but short lasting. Very good even with spaghetti clams and mussels. — 2 years ago

Michael Mara Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

One of the best Chardonnay I’ve had, equal to some Grand Cru. The nose is bold, with scents of the beach, fresh hot straw, cumquat and star fruit acidity. The flavor is medium bodied, long and lingering, with the perfect balance of minerality and golden ripe fruits. Had with thanksgiving, and it was amazing. — 7 months ago
