Mastroberardino

Radici Riserva Taurasi Aglianico 2011

Chad was able to save the waiter from obliterating the crumbling cork. Beautiful garnet color with long legs. Heavy scents of bright cherry and leather. Sleek and lithe with well dry tannins. Cherry, tobacco, with a bit of astringency on the finish. 2011 Vintage — a month ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

I bought this to go in my recipe for dinner but ended up drinking it too! I’ve had this one before and it is a very good Sauv Blanc. — a month ago

Super chef! Your picture has mouthwatering appeal!🥂

Araujo Estate

Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

I continue to find marvelous ways to start the weekend and this is at the top of the list. Red fruit, minerality with wonderful tannins. Lingering mid pallet flavors.. I don’t believe this wine has peaked and will continue to expand its greatness.🍷 — a month ago

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Champagne lunch day! Micro bubbles, taste of strawberry and pink grapefruit. Sort of a copper orange color. A blend of different grapes.

Acidity and fruit nicely balanced. I've always enjoyed the yellow label brut, so I had to try the rose'.

Paired with chicken marsala.

Product of France. 12.5% abv.

Classy lunch!🥂

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Maestro Raro Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Still a bit restricted on the nose which contains graphite and pencil shaving, but than the mouthfeel... Sour candy sweetness with mouthfilling fruit. Still a baby but already so good! Very long finish which continued for minutes! Simply said: spectacular! — a month ago

Himmel Auf Erden Cabernet Sauvignon Zweigelt 2016

Brettastic nose. Mean that as a compliment. Juicy, spicy peppery cool toned fruit, a little bit effervescent, would not have thought mostly Cab Sauv (Cab Franc maybe) but love a surprise and cool when terroir dominates varietal. Loads of fun — a month ago
