Niccolo Arturo Coturri Testa Field Blend 2017

Somehow Nic makes this 15% bruiser absolutely quaffable. It’s got pure fruit character, nice herbaciousness, and a totally balanced palate. Begs to be shared and enjoyed. — 15 days ago

T'n'S Blocks Hudson Vineyard South Syrah 2015

I wanted to try another Hudson #syrah from the same vintage to contrast against the Keplinger. Similar fruit profiles, but very different winemaking. Where the Hangmans was rich, lush and open this is more tightly coiled. A little less alcohol, a touch more acidity, and a more savory wine with more meaty and iron notes. The Keplinger drinks great now but this wine should vastly improve and should really be something in about 10 more years. — 9 days ago

Agharta Wines

Black Label Syrah Blend 2010

Color of dark purple. Nose is nice and plenty, with dark fruits like cherry, white pepper, oak, crayon, and a touch of dried strawberry. Taste is similar with addition of polished tannins, grapefruit, a bit sweetness and subtle aridity, milk chocolate, and a bit smoke. Aftertaste sees the coming back of white pepper, grapefruit zest, soft tannins, and slow fade-away of the taste. Well done. — 8 days ago

Duplin Winery

Hatteras Red Sweet Muscadine

Beautiful light red color with a burst of fresh berries that hit the nose. This light bodied wine hits the palate with plentiful sweetness and flowery almost soap-like flavor — 22 days ago

Cruse Wine Co.

Monkey Jacket North Coast Red Blend 2017

Delectable Wine

Michael Cruse’s 2017 Monkey Jacket, a Valdiguié/Petite Sirah/Carignan and mixed blacks blend, is dark, racy and absolutely gorgeous. Black cherry, plum, spice and leather notes race out of the glass in this pliant, super-expressive red. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2019) — 11 hours ago
