This shot is for @Norman Gennaro.
So here’s the deal... wifey and I have a small place, which means that we can’t build a room with a cellar - we just don’t have the real estate. So, working with
@Mo Salem, our cellar needed to be an integral part of our living space. We’re doing something similar below our stairs. Keep you posted on that.

Let’s turn to this stunning SB. Aromas of grapefruit and slate on the nose. Palate is flinty and honied. Perfect acidity and weight on the mid-palate. It’s exuberant all the way to the finish. $22!!! 😀

Got renovation issues, @Mo Salem to the rescue! 2nd staircase will not go quietly.
This wine is stellar. It was great from the first moment till the last. Sangiovese at its best. Full bodied, earthy and mineral-driven. Tannins are relaxed, while the fruit profile displays the typical raspberry and herb notes. So much value here...

Ok peeps, many people have asked for more deets regarding our little cellar...
1.8m x 0.6m x 2.25m. The floor is Portuguese black slate (1cm thick). Floor, walls and ceiling are insulated with high-density foam, which has a low thermal conductivity. Chiller is housed remotely. Ducting pulls clean air from outside, and dumps exhaust air outside. Basically, everything is custom - my design, and a great contractor realized our dream.
@Mo Salem was instrumental with renovating our home, and the germ of the idea came from him.
This wine big and bold. Visually show its age. Cinnamon, cloves and pepper define the nose and palate. The oak monster is evident on the mid palate. Great tannins and complimentary acidity. This will sail on for another 5 years, but best consumed now.

Two more important points peeps, all the walls are backed with 3/4” plywood to support the racks, etc. all sheetrock within the cellar is green, due to the high humidity.

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo

Wow!!!! An impulse buy at NH Liquor in Salem. 95 points from some guy or other, but I almost rate it the same. Delicious at first sip — that forest floor, mossy taste of Boden Essential Red, but the black pepper zing ups the ante. I really love it. It is way better than its price range ($12.99) suggests. Pairs well with a Lifetime Christmas Movie about shelter dogs.
D: Really fucking good.
