Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2009

Fluffy peach skin, toasted coconut, fresh Marizipan , nutty, and marshmallowness. Gummy peach rings, apple skins. But dry, salty, and savory. 🦄 — a month ago

Beautiful setting!

Barnett Vineyards

Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Big, dark, and sexy. Impenetrably dark in the glass with a wide brim and just a touch of lavender highlights. The nose explodes with blackberry cobbler and ripe raspberries. Fresh brewed coffee and a touch of cinnamon compliment. The oak and vanilla come in late to show off.

I know I know, this is far too young to drink now. This is obviously better suited to drink 8-10 years from now but that’s clearly not what I chose. Still highly impressive after getting plenty of air, the backbone of a special wine is evident. Dense and bold, it’s high octane and powerful with a ton of intensity. As big and bold as it is, it never sacrifices the innate prettiness of the overall package.

Big and round on the palate, that beautiful mountain acidity absolutely shines here. More blue and black fruits, oak, and vanilla are showcased. Dark and lusty in the mouth, this is built to last. Cellar these, they’re not ready but when they are it’ll be fantastic.

Bosquet des Papes

A La Gloire De Mon Grand-Père Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

May be my fav wine of the year so far. Nose is like a fresh meat locker in all the right ways!!! Cellar temp. It will change with some time. Taste is slightly sweet to start and very silky and hugs your cheeks. Quickly changes to deep fruit, cedar and licorice. Fun bottle. — a month ago
