It doesn’t look like Delectable was able to peg this, but it’s the ‘Parcela A Costa’ Viticole collaboration. — 6 days ago

Vietti

Roero Arneis 2017

Nose has straw bale, lemon pith, lemon peel, light florals (Honeysuckle + Forsythia), Bosch pear peel and wet river rocks.

Palate has squeeze of lemon into pear juice, crushed granite, clementine peel, cold tropical fruits, great acidity with slight lingering sweetness on the long finish. Minor effervescent mouthfeel.

I say boldly, this is the best vintage yet for this particular wine. Very expressive, a total crowd pleaser, that is, if in the midst of the pandemic you're able to find a crowd to share with...and confirm pleasing.

Viñas de Gain Selección de Añada Rioja Tempranillo 2005

Thanks to @Ron R I was able to try an older vintage, still needed a 2nd day & 3 hour decant to open up. I think the low scores from others is because they didn’t give it enough air.
Thanks Ron!

This wine does need some severe coaxing. Completely agree that day 2/3 gives you a better look 👀

Santa Rita

Rapel Valley Carménère 2010

This is a wonderful wine. I feel blessed I was able to purchase two bottles at $13.99, not just because of the price but it is delicious! Again, for me, an older vintage, so wonderful!

Frans K Smit Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

This was a very nice find. Baked berries on the nose with a touch of cacao. What I found when I tasted this was an amazing glad of wine. First off. Smooth, I mean wow. Then all the various flavors start dancing in your mouth. Black currant, oak, black fruit, tobacco, lesser touches of chocolate and earth. This has all the attributes of a classic wine. I am lucky to have been able to try it. — 16 days ago

Bodegas Juan Carlos Sancha

Ad Libitum Monastrel de Rioja 2017

Maturana Tinta comes from a clone rescued from old Maturana Tinta Vines, aged for 11 months in new French oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of black fruits and smoky notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, tobacco and bits of cacao and black pepper. Lively acidity, medium finish ending with fruit, spice and smoky character. Nice value, should be able to age a bit. — 10 days ago

Fontanasanta Vigneti Delle Dolomiti Nosiola 2018

PnP. Light yellow with greenish hue. Lime, lemon, white flowers and ginger. High acidity and good tension - a vertical wine. I understand this does a skin contact but I wasn’t able to detect that. Quite enjoyable and refreshing. — 14 days ago
