Concentrated cassis and twigs on the nose led a big, round and voluptuous layering of black fruit, pure espresso and toasted oak. Tannins have faded to blue, creating a long and soft finish that feels like this masterpiece has peaked. I’m told this is Sloan in a “bad” year. Fine by me...￼.
So this is wine no. 1,000 for me on @delectable and I wanted to thank @Antonio Galloni for supporting and investing in this distinctive, global community of wine nerds, bon vivants, industry folks and general winos. It clearly holds a special place for its members. Yeah, I may gripe about the non-trending “Trending” section, but this is the best place there is on my iPhone to share and learn about the grape juice I love. So I joined Vinous, and am joining the paid Delectable, as this is the best I can do to support the Delectable team. I’ll also do my best to make it to the Barolo Rare Wine Dinner in NYC next week! Cheers. — a month ago
Anne-Marie’s 1K tasting on Delectable, so we decided to push the boat out with Venge.
It was also her birthday, and my daughter and her fiancé gifted her these cute unicorn slippers!
The wine is clean, precise and multi-layered. Roasted black fruits give way to graphite and soft brown sugar. The finish extends and expands on the palate. This is a beauty of a cab. — 4 months ago
Augustiner-Brau-München Maximator dopplebock.
After an afternoon of stuffing homemade sausages as a fundraiser for our kid's school, there may be no better nightcap than this impeccable beer.
Chocolatey, toasty, very well balanced, even with its relatively high gravity, many new world brewers could learn something here.
