Loma Gorda Single Vineyards Calatayud Old Vines Red Blend 2015

Absolutely delicious with stout cheeses (aged Gruyere and aged Gouda) and seedy crackers. Couldn’t be more pleasing. Was smooth, complimentarily fragrant and balanced. Try it! — 11 days ago

Horseshoe Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Pop and pour. About 3.5 yrs since my last btl. Once again, fantastic aromatics. On the nose: clove, soft cinnamon, pomegranate, brambles, soft blackberry..so compelling. On the palate: density has definitely picked up.from what I remember; some grapeseed, dark blackberry, bitter wood, and transitioning seamlessly to a slightly tannic finish. I'm still not entirely happy with the showing on the mid-palate, but the aromatics are compelling enough to make me almost not care. Paired with cauliflower steaks with nutritional yeasts and liquid aminos (yes, very vegan), and an assortment of other roast vegetables, prepared in different ways. An excellent pairing (ironically, bc of the bitterness on the palate with which I was less than enamored). — 15 days ago

Is it thin mid palate?

Yeah: better than the last showing, but thinner than I would have liked.

@Aravind A that’s a drawback sometimes of very cool climate Pinot. Also an issue sometimes in Switzerland.

Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Red Blend 2019

There is a bit of funk there, along with garrigue, Provence herbs, anise, blackberry and other black forrest fruits. Interesting nose. The palate is very well designed with a perfect balance between a strong acid drive and a nice red forest fruits note, a good width and a smooth mouthfeel, a bit of dynamic, fresh twist, playful yet edgy tannins in an ever evolving palate before a powerful finish with fruits, spices and those herbs. This is very good! — a month ago

Evangelho Vineyard Mourvedre 2018

Juicy, lip-smacking, mouth-staining purple goodness. Impressive balance, light and lively on the lips. Ripe red/ fruit berry/cherry/ makes my mouth water. I love the lightness of this wine and the way it weaves its way to the bright finish. — 2 days ago

San Valentino Sangiovese Blend 2014

Slightly turbid. Noticeable VA (not at all out of place considering Bea). Powerful notes of cherry, stone fruits (apricot and peach), and cool, damp forest earth. Medium tannins and high acid. The finish is wild and satisfying. If my previous experience with this vintage was the reference, this was not quite as impressive as it was and based on the challenges of the 2014 vintage, probably time to drink and enjoy! — 2 days ago

This one was a pleasant surprise! I’d love to try a 70’s vintage!
