Bodega Antigua Casa De Guardia

Pajarete Málaga Pedro Ximénez Muscat of Alexandria

Pajarete or Paxarete is a traditional sweet wine from southern Andalusia. Historically, such wines came from the Pago de Pajarete, an ancient vineyard site in the Sierra de Cádiz, coveted for its wines since at least the 16th Century. Located about 38 miles north east of Jerez, Pajarete’s vineyards were devastated by phylloxera at the end of the 19th Century and never replanted. But growers in the neighboring province of Málaga continued using Pajarete’s name to describe wines made in this style. This Pajarete is a blend of Muscat of Alexandria and Pedro Ximénez, sourced from vineyards in the Axarquía and Montes de Málaga subregion on slate soils. The Muscat comes from Axarquía, closer to the coast, while the Pedro Ximénez from Montes de Málaga, further inland. They are vinified separately and blended together after fortification. After blending, they are oxidatively aged in old American oak botas for an average of 5 years using the solera system. Expressive nose. Candied fruit, caramel, wood. Smooth, balanced. — 9 days ago

Consistent! I’ve tasted several vintages and I’m mostly very pleased. Drinking Very Local. I may be biased, as I am currently living 3 miles south of the winery, sometimes that can cloud your perception. But this stuff is good. The QPR is out of this world. Can’t wait to visit the winery and taste through the lineup. — a month ago

From Wine-Searcher “Fifty Shades of Syrah”: Nights in the northern Rhône are cool; acidity levels are good. Only in very hot vintages does more shading, via canopy management, become necessary. But at the same time, Guigal is investing in cooler sites in the north of Côte-Rôtie – Philippe mentions Saint-Cyr sur le Rhône, which was "considered too cold 10 years ago, but we feel that [it] could become interesting to very interesting in the future and in warm vintages".

Need more info, what North of Rotie equates to, New AOC?? Moving into Beaujolais? ... ??

Weingut Leon Gold

Spätburgunder Wanne 2015

Pinot in a Riesling bottle! The Winery is close to Stuttgart less than 20 Miles from Porsche and Mercedes-Benz in Württemberg/Germany. There is a ton of fruit in this, quite dark. More Oregon than Burgundy. Super elegant. Tannins fully resolved. Dark cherries, hint blueberries and crushed marble, touch orange juice. Drink now. Given the diversity of terroir altitudes/mountains and different styles and affordability Germany is now in my opinion the leader in Pinot Noir and this is another prime example. Lyle when will you get a Pinot from the Ahr grown on Slate? — 2 months ago

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Crognolo Toscana Sangiovese 2017

Estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, 15 miles northwest of the city of Arezzo, past the village of San Giustino Valdarno. Crognolo, aged in French Allier barriques, deep Ruby with red fruit aromas and floral notes. On the palate blackberry and sweet cherry flavors, blossom notes, spice and fine dusty tannins. Good balance, long finish ending with some oak and mineral tones. Nice! Aging well, recommend decant for an hour first. — a month ago
