Monte Del Frá

Monte Xanic

Gran Ricardo Valle de Guadalupe Red Blend 2018

Excellente!! When in Mexico, must have MX wines! For those who haven’t experienced some of the MX wines, please try them. Dark red fruit with berry Intensity that brings up jam and simply juicy deliciousness to mind. Slight spice, pepper and cinnamon on the nose and a medium long finish. Yes, this is a bit young and I would expect this to get even better with a few years on the rack. — 11 days ago

Duetto is one of my favorites. So is Megacero.


Santo Tomas Duetto is usually what I buy to bring back home! Excellent bottle as is their Unico



Monte Dall'Ora

Saseti Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend

2019/3. This was light and very herbal, skirting just this side of weedy - but I did enjoy it for all that. It works with the bitter cherry and almond - just quaff it down. — 8 days ago

Macon-Verze Le Monte Chardonnay 2017

I like the 2014 better than the 2017. It’s dryer, maybe 5 more years will be better — 10 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello California Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 1977

This looks immaculate and has a really high fill. On the front there’s loads of iron, a salinity, a liverish quality, a pure dark plum and black cherry. This is very lovely still and quite primary. Delicious. — 4 days ago

Riserva Vigna Pedale Castel del Monte Nero di Troia 2015

Pretty solid rustic Nero di Troia. Probably the best of my 4-5 samples of this grape. 3 bicchieri is a stretch but it’s not like the Gambero Rosso guys don’t make worse calls. — 20 days ago

Puer Apuliae Castel del Monte Nero di Troia 2003

A very acidic, intense red wine that is perfect for steak. Powerful tannins in the finish are now smooth yet bitter. The nose is intense dark red fruit. Strong leather to start, and tannic to finish. An excellent wine. — 4 days ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Expressive on the nose, bursting with juicy dark fruits on the palate and hints of spice, long and eventful finish pleasing the palate now and no doubt for many decades to come. — 16 days ago
