Vittoria Frappato

This was a recommend from K & L. It was mentioned when I asked for a “chill-able red” that wasn’t “Love you Bunches”. This wine fit the bill, and was a great pairing with jambalaya pasta! — 11 days ago

Pure Valle De Uco Malbec 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

This juicy essence of Malbec boasts terrific violet lift to its pristine aromas and flavors of blackberry and spices. Fine-grained, sharply delineated and intense, this weightless Malbec, made entirely without oak, finishes savory and persistent. An energetic fruit bomb with great gulpability. $15.00 (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, September 2019) — 17 days ago

Loscano

Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Very good! Rich, spicy, subtle earth, and extremely flavorful. No jamminess. 14.5%, but not too heavy. A Rob wine more than a Z wine, but she liked it too. Solid value at $23 (Vendome).
Definitely buy again!

SI VINO ROSSO Petit Rouge 2015

Beautiful discovery ! A fruity and elegant indigenous red from Val d'Aosta in a beautiful bottle sealed with beeswax! The nose is floral and fresh, intriguing. I loved the silkiness in the mouth, with a delicate taste full with mountain berries. Everyone around the table loved it, I'll buy again as soon as I can. — 12 days ago

Ver Sacrum

Los Chacayes Mendoza Garnacha 2017

Delicious. Light body, pale color, tart raspberry, balanced really well. When it is a warm summer day and you don’t want a white, this is a good choice. This is the first time I’ve had an Argentinian wine. I will have to search for others from this producer. 2017 vintage. — 3 days ago

Finca El Origen

Reserva Estate Valle de Uco Malbec 2018

Pretty good. Not my favorite Malbec but not bad. It’s got nice red fruit and mineral notes. It’d go great with a char-grilled chicken breast. Overall, pretty solid wine that I would probably try again. — 3 days ago

Arnad-Montjovet Nebbiolo 2016

Very few accessible nebbiolos are as consistently magical to me as examples from Valle d’Aosta and Alto Piemonte. This local clone, Picotendro, shows super alpine and earthy here, with a clarity of red fruit that ties the palate together. Significantly more restrained than its southern neighbors. For <$25 just simply gorgeous. — 6 days ago

Gabriel Red Blend 2016

9.4

Really impressed with this Bordeaux blend from the Guadalupe Valley in Baja Cal. Deep purple color, black fruit,, pencil shavings, toasted oak on the nose. Medium to high acid with notes of red and black berries on the pallet. Finishes smooth with a very slight hotness, but ABV is 13.6%. — 8 days ago
