🍇2019 Ronco del Gnemiz Friulano San Juan
Enchanting and thrilling with a lovely texture. Somehow it reminds me of a mix of a white Burgundy and high quality Sancerre. A wine that is right up my alley. Serve it at 12 degrees in a generous Burgundy glass. Serve it with something tasty.
Good concentration on the nose that opens up with some green apples, grape fruit and elder flower that is soon overtaken by richer characters of juicy peaches, orange and honey. Toasted nuts and a pronounced crushed fruit mineralogy brings further complexity.
Full bodied and a generous entry with a balancing fresh acidity. Pronounced fruit concentration and strong mid palate yet with a slime waste and lovely salty texture that brings nerve and tension through a very solid finish. Well Done! — 5 days ago
Color of light gold. Nose of tropical sweetness, nice spice and green apple, a bit mineral, and strength of alcohol. Taste is quite light, dominated by green apple, tinkling zest, some tea note, and warmth from the alcohol. Aftertaste is spicy warmth from the alcohol. On par. — 5 days ago
Vappupäivän entrecoten kaveri. Karhunvatukkainen, tummankirsikkainen, luumuinen, vaniljainen ja kahvinen eli kaikkea tätä pehmeyttä ja reippaat, kuivattavat tanniinit mutta lempeät nekin. Loistoviini ja tämäkin noin 15 €. Jatkoon! 😋❤ — 6 days ago
Raspeberry, Sequoia, Santa Cruz Mtn soil.
Carbonic maceration, destmmed after 10 days, fermented on-skins for some time more, pressed to mouthfeel, native ferment, unfined, unfiltered, 13% abv. Slightly cloudy without notable sediment.
I really appreciate this wine, while my friend is bonkers for this wine. Easily approachable, easy drinking & pair-able, does not seek to destroy (thank you!)
Very pleasant, fruity, great on its own or with food. Great without decant (notes potent for me though), I enjoyed more with 1 hour decant. Enjoy now. — 6 days ago
First pass at an aged Rhys. Fun. Some barnyard going on here. Not fruit forward. Not a Syrah disguised as a Pinot Noir. — 3 days ago
Found at a local grocery store. More expensive than Costco. We thought it was on sale but it wasn’t. Older vintage than Costco. Not much difference between the 17 & 18. Will stock up on either one. — 7 days ago
The 2018 Pinot Noir Estate San Andreas Fault is bright and beautifully lifted in the glass. Crushed red berry, mint and white pepper give the 2018 striking aromatics presence. Medium in body, nervy and finely delineated, the 2018 has a lot going on. I would give it a few years to soften, as the tannins are a bit fierce today. Time in the glass brings out the wine's inner perfume and a real feeling of finesse that will only grow with time. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2021)
