Potenti Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Lyle Fass

Second bottle in less than a week and this is a smokeshow. Pure Cab. Such a good wine. What a nose. Tobacco, cigar, not Marlboro, awesome layered cassis, ripe berry, so ebullient, better aromas than my first bottle. This is really something else. Mint, raspberry. So complex and inviting. Palate is just so silky and structured. Concentrated like a mofo and man is it pure and juxtaposed with such intense minerality and it is mega fresh because it’s Tuscan Cabernet. Superb. Just superb. So hard to get wines like this right. Tuscan soul, Bordeaux heart, Ca cab 70’s brain. Like a Graves/St. Estephe cross. Gravelly and woodsy. Really tows that line between ripeness and freshness so well. — 5 days ago

Terra Petra Rapsani Xinomavro Blend 2016

All the expected characteristics: fruit-forward, light bodied, smooth transitions, just a touch of minerality. Very nice dinner wine. — 8 months ago

Corse Figari Vinti Legna Vin de Corse AOC Red Blend 2016

To me it’s like you take a really good, less bracingly acidic Chianti Classico, and put it in the hands of a winemaker with French sensibility in a terroir full of Mediterranean garrigue — 2 years ago

Nose is ripe with tobacco, ash, earth, plum and cassis. Spice and cigar as well. Nice aromas. Refined and classy. Juicy and bright with nice freshness and good suave tannins. Nice cassis and big cherry berry fruit. Elegant and classy. Suave wine and very well made. Best Petra wine yet. Long finish. A lot to like here. Could go to 9.3 with air. 70% cab s/30% Merlot. — a month ago

Suvereto Red Blend 2012

Lyle Fass

Nice nose of tobacco, cassis, earth and mineral. Tar as well. Deep. Palate is dark, deep, rich and brooding. Dense, structured and ripe, and showing youthful elements at 8 years of age. Long finish. I see air helping here. Cascading layers of fruit will fan out more. Serious structure and big tannins. — 2 months ago

Zingari Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2017

Blackberry, cherry, plum skin, light body, some tannins, pleasant lingering finish. Having it with turkey ragu, which should be just right. 2017. Great value. Merlot Sangiovese, Syrah. Petit Verdot in equal parts. — a month ago


Quercegobbe Suvereto Merlot 2010

Lyle Fass

Nose or smoke, wet earth, dried flowers, plum, faint raspberry, very pretty. This has nice high end aged Merlot character. Classic in style and very Tuscan. Palate is ripe, ample and rich but has a vein of freshness that runs throughout that gives it lovey cut. Good tannins and significant structure suggests this has some years left. Very juicy and long. Tuscan St. Emilion. Gets more silky with air. Tremendous fruit and volume on this. Cascades on the palate with the sweet ripe tannins. — 2 months ago
