Juliet Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

9.4

Picture is from a great street vendor in NY. Focus is on flying rats. The wine is in a great spot. The nose displays kitsch and hints of tobacco. Palate is a power-play of pristine fruit, and slightly underripe tannins. Acidity acts as a counterweight to the tannins. It’s multi-layered with a seam of minerality. Leave this a little while longer if you have it, but it’s excellent now, if you like palate domination. — a day ago

Mineral and lime form the back bone while magnolia blossoms provide the aromatics. This tart refreshing wine hits the spot in early July. — 15 days ago

Bricco del Bosco Vigne Vecchie Monferrato Grignolino 2013

Old Vines Grignolino from heart of Monferatto - tough vintage so saw a little more oak than normal, but led to an incredibly balanced wine with sour cherry and forest floor as the wine opened. Everyone should drink more Grignolino. — 25 days ago

If only I could find it. 🧐

Domaine Fourrier

Vieille Vigne Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2013

Ex-double mag, at C&A's wedding. Heaps of reduction on the nose, but palate's great - lovely fruit richness, red fruits, herbs, crisp acidity, fine tannins, and a mineral finish. Its delicious, but outclassed by the stylistically-similar Duroche 13' Etelois for me. — 25 days ago

One of three bottles consumed with friends. We had with steak but it was overshadowed by the Sleepers cab. Didn't think it was amazing despite the high ratings. — 10 days ago
