A light Bordeaux with decent flavor once it opens up — 14 days ago
Nose is dominated by flowers and cinnamon. Palate displays coffee notes, sandalwood, smoke and star anise. Tannins are still prominent, as is the acidity. It’s so vibrant and textured. The finish just extends and expands. Another one of our domestic pinot faves.
I was thrilled to read in a recent WS article shared by a friend, that TRB has taken full ownership of this winery. He has a compelling vision for its future. Schrader inadvertently threw shade on this. That’s going to change going forward. — 10 days ago
This pink wine’s nose is laden with ripe, red fruit - cherries, strawberries - and a touch of citrus - lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit. There is also an herbal note, a sort of greenness than leans into minerality. The palate brings the red fruit first, followed by the citrus. The acidity is great, and the mouthfeel is quite full. If Negroamaro is the future of Italian rosé, bring it on. — 10 days ago
Tasted blind. Regal tawny color. Almost opaque. Sweet nose, but less so than the 64 red burg. Notes of cola, red fruit, cut cigar, smoke and some nice soil and spice thing. Rustic and austere in the mouth. Still has some pucker and a little structure but acidity is lighter. Reminds me of a very old Clos de Tart I had once so go with a 45 as my guess. Right vintage, wrong grape/region. Ha. — a day ago
Elegant as all get out. I can’t get over Palo Cortado, even with its shady requirement to be called “Palo Cortado”—pretty sure some are no more accidental “failed Finos” than chocolate chip cookies were a ‘whoops I dropped chocolate in the dough’—but that matters not. Mixed nuts and lemon and amaretto don’t sound like things I’d want to consume all at once but they are elements of this wine I love all at once. — 19 days ago
Faint hint of brett, rustic but still fruity, pizza friendly GSM, with nice tannin once a bit aerated. Quite enjoyable. — 4 days ago
Exceptional once again from Elena. Best Aglianico going. — 16 days ago
