Castelnuovo Dell'Abate

La Colombina di Caselli Anna Maria Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Light ruby in the glass with a wide brim. Floral aromas all over this initially. Cranberries and blueberries are the stars here but cedar and and spice compliment well. There’s that classic Brunello old leather aroma that we all know and love along with smoke and earth.

Classic Brunello pretty much tells the story here. Classically structured with high acidity and proper balance. Elegant yet approachable at the same time. More dusty leather on the palate with vibrant blue and red fruits. Smoked tobacco and dried herbs. Give this plenty of time to breathe and you’ll be rewarded. Even more so if you wait a few years.

Liquid Farm

La Hermana Chardonnay 2019

Pop and pour with lunch. On the nose: soft smoke, lemon oil, meyer lemon, so fresh. On the palate: fantastic acidity, excellent density, lemon peel, lemon oil, soft wet stone. Very refreshing finish. — 16 days ago

Belle Glos

Clark & Telephone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

Big bold beautiful pinot from the central coast. Fruit forward, could have used a tad more fermentation. Pairs well with Italian or a big steak. — 21 days ago
