Ramey Mountain Vineyard Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Like reading a novel. Big wine but medium weight… if that makes sense. Big fruit… but not a fruit bomb. Tons of sediment… but the color is clear and bright. This was a fun wine tasted over 3 days. From the town of Oregon House, California. In the Sierra Foothills. Near Clos Saron. … magic soil in Oregon House!? — a month ago

Pietra Marina Etna Bianco Superiore Carricante 2017

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2017 Etna Bianco Superiore Pietra Marina makes itself known with a beguiling bouquet that blends crushed oyster shells with rosemary, young apricot and hints of smoke. It’s deeply textural and elegant in feel, with ripe pit fruits that cascade across a core of zesty acids, as nuances of green citrus pinch at the cheeks. This leaves the palate buzzing with residual energy; fresh melon tones linger and are framed by a coating of salty minerality. While the 2017 shows a bit of extra ripeness from the warm vintage, it does so in such a seductive and balanced way. This is top-shelf Etna Bianco by every scope of the imagination. The Pietra Marina is an old-vines selection of Carricante from the Rinazzo Contrada on Etna’s eastern slope. It refines for 24 months on the lees in stainless steel vats prior to bottling.
