Il Paradiso di Frassina

Frassina Rosso Sangiovese Blend 2015

This is a real sleeper. Sneaky concentration and complexity on the back with very rustic tobacco ash, mineral and woodsmoke character. Even a hint of black fruit showing up on the finish. Really fine effort. — 2 days ago

Bone Ash Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Greg Ballington

Second of the blind red wines. Theme was Cabernet Sauvignon or Bordeaux Blend from Oakville, Stags Leap District or generic Napa Valley with professional reviews of 95+.

Deep purplish red. Beautiful and young nose coated with violets, blackberries and sweet spices. Medium tannins (6/10) and medium to medium plus bodied. Plush palate layered with blackberries, red fruits, cinnamon, branches and a light bit of earthiness. A bit of alcohol was definitely present. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2030. (93+)

Château Magdelaine

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1993

Ash, leafs in decay, soft plummy, figgy fruit, blood and ferous notes. No tannines, tender and transparant, a respectable grand lady at the final phase of her drinking plateau.
Pretty good effort, considering the vintage.
