Guidalberto Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2016

Had this in cellar! Outstanding! From the makers of Sassicaia, Deep Ruby with red & black fruits and floral aromas of this 60% Cab Sauv 40% Merlot blend. On the palate flavors of cherry, currants and blackberry with cinnamon, licorice, cacao and earthy notes, well integrated. Fine tannins, approachable, a wine with a solid structure, elegant and smooth, long finish, great mouth feel ending with fruit and spicy oak. Still had room to age. Nice! — 7 days ago

Trout Gulch Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Medium lemon yellow/gold. Lighter on the palate than expected…noticeable acid adds amazing vitality to offset the tart, dry fruit which reminds you of crisp green apples and slightly underripe pear. Depth of complexity is impressive… the main flavors keep changing and mutating drawing you back. The finish lasts a minute and leaves a smile. This wine is an infant…I expect it to gain weight and complexity and smooth itself into something seamless over the next 5 to 10 years. A Chardonnay to convince the haters. — 3 days ago

Would you be kind enough to add the vintage?

No problem… sometimes Vinous has a mind of its own.

Gonsalves Contra Costa County Mataro 2018

2018 Ridge Gonsalves Mataro (Contra Costa County). This is delicious but flirts with a bit of underripeness (in a good way). Nose has a slight vegetal note (as my brother pointed out), but also has vanilla and nice ripe cherry. No inderripeness in the mouth, with great acid/fruit balance. Delicious and a unique take in that it avoids blowsey jamminess that some wineries get from warm Contra Costa County fruit. — 12 days ago

Terre di San Leonardo Trentino Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

Intense spiced berry, black licorice and peppery florals emerge from the 2017 Terre di San Leonardo. Silky with depths of fruit accelerated by brisk acids, the 2017 leaves the palate reeling, with its spry, lightly structured personality. This young-vine Bordeaux blend is an amazing value. $22.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2022) — 16 days ago

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Nose has brown butter sauteed pineapple, fresh coconut meat, (damp) crushed granite, faint sea spray and baked pear.

Palate has under-ripe pineapple, lime peel, sugared lemon slice, cold caramel yellow apple, phenolic notes which runout though a medium finish.

Needs YEARS, revisit 2026+.

I was intrigued by the nose but underwhelmed by the palate tonight.

Didn't even try getting them, figured you had them all locked down already.

Needed a steak tonight and found this place that has two of my favorites…Beef Wellington and ribeye cap. I went with the ribeye tonight. $80 pesos per ounce. Delicious. Should have upgraded the wine for this experience. — 5 days ago

First sip was black tea. More tar starting to show along with the sweetness of fresh roses. Just love the color of Barolo. — 10 days ago
