Castello di Neive

Santo Stefano Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2011

Had an Italian Wine tasting last week and ordered this Barbaresco for dinner. Wow. Piedmont has to be the #1 region in Italy. So good earthy, tomato on the nose, and long beautiful finish. YUM — 7 days ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Big fan of this house but found this bottle disappointing. Nose lacked the usual intensity; palate not that interesting for fifty some odd bucks. Bottle #1 at Scott's. — 3 months ago

C.V.N.E. (Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España)

Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2004

Oak Barriques in evidence with vanillin notes also showing plums and tobacco with a dark chocolate note. Quiet dense on the palate with dried cherry, red licorice, and an overall sweetness. A little different to my note of September 2018 where I talk about sweet and sour although that is still there to a degree. A bit weird this one - too famous for what it delivers. In the 2013 Wine Spectator Top 100 this was Wine #1 I will leave last bottle to at least 2024 on its 20th Birthday. — 3 months ago

@Ericsson Very much a keeper. Might have more complexity in a few years. Great fruit and very well made.

Yes! I had the ‘08 and have another bottle in my cellar. I thought it was great.

Kirkland Signature

Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2020

Surprisingly delicious for the price. Anothe slam dunk from Costco, the #1 wine retailer in the world. This is fruity, not too sweet and has big notes of citrus, pear and grapefruit. Gorgeous color, great feel and very clean. — 11 days ago

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2018

Super Bowl wine #1, this is good, but not great. Lacked the depth I was expecting and was even more closed than I thought it would be. That all said, this improved dramatically over the course of a couple of hours, so maybe it just needs time. — 3 months ago

Dehlinger Winery

Estate Bottled Goldridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Tasting of 10 of the 2007-2011 Dehlinger Pinots. Eva Delingher was kind enough to join our tasting and answer all of our random questions. This lush, elegant and meaty wine reminded me of our Pisoni tasting and was my #1. simply outstanding. — a month ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

This is one of my #1 Sauvignon Blanc varieties! Peter Yealand does it the best! There is also an estate version, however, I prefer this one. Everyone that I have served this wine to wants to write it down so they can buy it again! — 2 months ago
