Lush soft tannins that just perfectly wrap a package of mellow strawberry, cherry, plum, black pepper and volcanic ash. This shit is on point, periodt — 24 days ago
Cranberries, tobacco, and a zing of black pepper on the tongue. A Sicilian wine that is worth its salt when so many fall short. Buy again at Total Wine. This is ideal for chill nights at home following intellectual pursuits with a cat on one’s lap. — 7 days ago
A selection from the Costco Wine Advent Calendar.
From 325 mL.
Plum, cherry, leather, and a bit of spice scents lead to flavors of black raspberries, black cherry, and leather. A bit lighter, and higher acidity than what I'd expect from most cabs. I would think this had an Italian varietal blended in, but there is no mention of anything other than cab on the label.

This is actually Ryan’s “Been Away Too Long” bottling, a 100% mourvedre sourced from Denner. If you don’t know these wine, do yourself a favor and try a few bottles. In my opinion he makes the best pure mourvedre outside of France. Unlike most mourvedres, Ryan’s are elegant - more like a grenache - but with great depth of flavor. His wines are very approachable when young, but definitely put on some weight and depth with a few years in the bottle, so my rating will absolutely go up with time. Terrific wines from a small, excellent winery in Paso. Check it out! — a day ago

Bursting with lemon, spiced candied orange, grapefruit, salinity, exotic vibes. Intoxicating. Fruit cocktail in the best kind of way, succulent peach. Punchy acidity. Well made and seductive. — 17 hours ago
