Lightness, not to be confused with either elegance or vapidity, but rather a state of mind. With Sicilian cuisine, one prefers to have the food lead and the wine follow (albeit closely).
Brilliant crunchy red fruit, mineral-palooza, spice, and some pencil lead gripping the tongue but not too sharply. Pass the Arancini per favore! — a year ago
Ripe red and black fruits sweet ripe tannins. It’s a very delicious wine. It seems a little simple though, not much complexity with no tertiary aromas or flavors and the alcohol feeling for me is on the high side. Very good. #redblend #redfruitblackfruit #californiazinfandel #sonomawine — a year ago
Deep ruby hue with fuchsia rim variation. Dark cherry preserves, creme de cassis, fig jam, blackberry, leather, cedar, smoked red meat, wet earth, black truffle, crushed rose, bay leaves, and sage. Deliciously balanced. Lovely structure and complexity and a long, elegant finish. Vintage 2012. ABV 13.5%. #chateaudarmailhac #baronnephilippinederothschild #grandcruclassé #pauillac — a year ago
