Finally gained access to my wine cellar and found this SB from Sicily: showing beautifully with dark straw color and sporting that unique spearmint note along with lemon oil, lanolin and late summer grass. Firm acidic backbone and oily fat quality on palate. Just really fantastic w/Thai. — 10 days ago

Les Enfants Terribles Evangelho Vineyard Old Vines Carignane 2016

Thinks drinks like a light, racier version of Evangelho Zin. It’s effortless but with striking depth and clarity.. Vines planted in the 1890s. Killer. — 5 days ago

@Adam Beasley @Rhonely Boy Agreed. One of my favorite value producers, anywhere.

Old Vines Field Blend 2016

A field blend in the true sense of the word this wine is a blend of 5 different grape varietals. Rich nose of red plum, blackberry with hints of cinnamon & allspice rounding it out. The pallate is full bodied and decadent with flavors of plum sauce, sweet tobacco, along with cocoa and baking spices on a long finish. Paired quite well with homemade spaghetti and meatballs! ($19) [4/6/21] — 7 days ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Cunning Carignane Mourvedre 2015

Having this with a tomato/meat sauce on pasta and it’s as perfect an accompaniment as any Chianti Classico or Vino Nobile. Loads of dark crunchy cherry fruit, a balsamic savory note and loads of minerality. Intense but in a measured way, everything in balance. So good. — 11 days ago

Duarte Vineyard Zinfandel 2019

Bold and powerful Zin with a great palate of dark and red fruits, oaky tobacco, and lingering finish. Curious to see what some light aging might add — 7 days ago

I enjoyed it because for me, this shows true #Carignane typicity. High acid, tangy crunchy, red Apple aromas and flavors. Rich ripe fruit. Subtle sweet spice. This #carignan it reminded me a lot of the #cariñena I make. — 19 days ago

Costa di Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

The best wine we’ve tried for now, for my husband. It’s soft, has violets and my fav dark berries, balanced, adult. It is round and full, and we will buy the next bottle for our first spring trip! — 15 days ago
