Verduno Pelaverga 2015

Tastes like Cab Franc done well, fuller bodied at 14% abv, smoke, pyrazene, cedar, dark cherries, and game. Medium tannins and elevated acidity. — a year ago

Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair

Monopole Clos du Château Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2006

Incense, smoky, Christmas spice, wet autumn leaves, soaked cherry compote. Rather airy for an 2006. After two hours, nose is earthy with burdock root in a very pleasant way. Sour cherries on the last splash. Guessed 01/02 due to the sweetness towards the end. One of the best 2006s I've had. — 2 years ago

Donatella Cinelli Colombini

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2008

Elegant, perfumed and very classy Brunello. Notes of tomato confit, dried herbs, and curing spices. Long, savory finish. Went great with homemade Cavatelli and meatballs! — 2 years ago

Hahn Winery

SLH Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2016

Founder Nicky Hahn, grew up speaking German. In his native language, the word ‘Hahn’ means rooster, which is why a depiction of this bird has always graced the label of his wines. Aromas of dark berry fruits with sweet dried spice notes. On the palate cherry and blueberry with oaky notes, cacao and sweet spice. Fine grippy tannins, savory, lingering ending with fruit and mineral tones. Nice value! — a year ago

Vigneto Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

Pronounced nose of Juicy red plums, red cherries, strawberry, raspberry and cranberry, rose hips, dust ... fresh herbs and mint then licorice. Med+ acid, medium body with smooth silky integrated tannins. Medium finish but overall so incredibly weightless yet with so much character... showed even better the second night!
What is so impressive is how refreshing and lifted this is amongst so many darker ready wines from this warm vintage!!!

Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

Serious Moulin-à-Vent. Tense, firm structure and lingering intensity. Some mild reduction on the nose leads right into raspberries, violets, spice, leather and crushed stones. Mineral-tinged flavors of creme de menth, dark cherries, cocoa and herbs. This is a powerful and elegant bottle that is superb for aging and offering tons of expression right now. Highly recommended if you can find it. — 10 months ago

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

[Tasted on April 21, 2020 at Home]

Cherry fruit with licorice, tar, earth, black olive, some leather notes, and a touch of menthol and iron on the finish. A medium to fuller style of Rosso di Montalcino.

Soulful and got better over time. Candied dark fruit, tobacco and spice. Really elegant. — a year ago

Les Saint Georges Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2003

O that heady Côtes de Nuits's almost as if you can smell cherries through their entire life process, from seed to blossom to ripe fruit to orchard decay. In a fantastic place! — 2 years ago

Yes I was @Todd Abrams. That was fun!! Popped it into the decanter. Some more of the earthiness starting to emerge. Like a fresh shovel in the greenhouse of my bud @Todd Abrams. It's a perfect cherry that isn't to sweet or tart. And yes some of my ground cinnamon jumps at you also.


That bottle never stood a chance. Finished with some caramel and coffee grounds. Loved it😎

Donatella Cinelli Colombini

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Fruity, sweet up front but dryer on the end. Ripe berries. Green vegetables. Green tomatoes and green peppers a bit as well. — 2 years ago
