Livermore Valley Sémillon 2001

When it sings... Wow! This probably Terry's best cuvee, his Chardonnays are great but this is just something special and to me the best new world example for semillon. — 6 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2002

Ridge,2002, California Monte Bello. Color- dark red purple with slight bricking. Nose—dark blue/red fruit and perfume spice-raisin and creme brûlée throughout with a mint scent lingering. A fantastic luscious feel in the mouth bursting of dark cherry flavors, with some earthy spices,cedar and soft coffee mocha grounds, the sweetness from the creme brûlée is subtlety throughout. A long finish but flavors are restrained and tannins are integrated but not totally resolved giving this wine a definite opportunity to age more. Can’t wait to try in a year or two! — 5 days ago

EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2019

This could use the additional information of being from the Viñedo Valle Hermoso, just to add that in. It’s all herbs and asparagus served on a plate of chalk and all that just sounds like...too much. But? They pull it off with aplomb. I’ve always been a minimalist but somehow this wine is maximalist and minimalist? I don’t know how they do it but it’s very good. — 14 days ago

Rustico Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore

100th anniversary of the winery. This is a very nice crispy DOCG Valdobbiadene Prosecco. Loads of citrus, lemon and balance. Acidic and minerality notes on the finish. Skip the blue bottle and spend a few dollars more for a nice Valdobbiadene. You'll appreciate the difference. — 17 days ago

Poggioaicieli Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2013

I’m quarantined, many grapes deep, and I’m reminded of my precious Tuscany. 😍 I can taste the smell of the fresh air and beautiful blend of an earthy peppery grass. Then it turns into a papaya without an ounce of bitterness. Maybe I like the people at this vineyard so I’m partial but I doubt it. 💁🏻‍♀️ 2013 is a nice year and there’s my two cents. — 20 days ago

The Rare Barrel

That's the Pits 2019

The amount of nectarine and peach in this is insane. So good for bring pits. Very tart, there’s a herbal note but finish is pure tart juice of nectarine/peach flowing down the tongue. Amazing — 4 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Tonight's wine is the 2017 Ridge Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

The nose has rich dark fruits of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, licorice, chocolate, violets, graphite and rich earth.

The palate reveals black cherry, blackberry, black currant, green bell pepper, soft toasted oak, graphite, licorice, spice, violet and earth.

This wine is full bodied filling the mouth with rich notes, medium + acidity and medium + mouth coating grippy tannins that moves nicely into a long black fruit finish. This wine does not disappoint for a second wine from Ridge. I hope your week has been going well and we have all been safe and healthy. Let's look forward to the weekend with more openings. Have a great rest of your week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Never been a bad Ridge in my experience. Not even corked.

Azienda Agraria Lisini

San Biagio Toscana Sangiovese 2016

Delectable Wine
9.0

Lisini’s 2016 San Biagio is 100% Sangiovese from noble terroir in Montalcino. Ripe cherries are laced with minerals and spice, all framed by zesty acids and the crunchy palate presence of the vintage. Cool-toned and silky, the 2016 is fresh, enjoyable and a pleasure to taste. $16.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2020) — 10 days ago
