Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Red 2009

At £140-£180 this is a decadent treat that is drinking fabulously but will benefit from more ageing in 10-20 years 😉 At 13.5% ABV it’s not over powered like many 🇺🇸 wines but it feels over priced for what it is to me 😁

San Biagio Toscana Sangiovese 2014

Plums, pipe tobacco and earthy. Some gritty tannins cling to the roof of my mouth. Less so on night 2. For an inexpensive wine, great value. A very good wine at ant price. — 3 days ago

Hirsch Vineyards

San Andreas Fault Pinot Noir 2013

Terrific pinot from Hirsch, the San Andreas was the best pinot we tasted at a recent wine dinner featuring a number of their wines. The wine lacks a bit in terms of tannic backbone - not sure how long this will last - but the fruit and spice on the nose and palate are great. Went really well with Vanessa’s mushroom risotto! — 8 days ago

Elio Filippino

San Cristoforo Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2010

Not much has changed with this delicious Nebbiolo. This time we decanted it for 2.5 hours while cooking up home made butter chicken. It’s a light to medium colour, reminiscent of natural strawberry or raspberry juice. Fresh smell of vanilla, strawberries, roses, flowers and hint of smokiness. Taste; starts of with fresh red fruits and vanilla. In the middle there is mild to medium leather chewiness. Also there is a definite subtle cigar box smell and some kind of chocolate. It finishes off with a fresh acidity that complements the beginning and middle. Overall, red fruit and rose Nebbiolo that has good complexity and fresh acidity that keeps you engaged. The butter chicken was great as well. — 14 days ago
