Piemonte tasting #2
Beautiful, dark sour cherries, with a bit of kirsch and a touch of spice. Juicy, very juicy on the palate with fresh, sappy tannins and great purity of fruit. Slightly rustic yet full of character and personality. This is just a beauty and even better slightly chilled.
A great wine. — 25 days ago
Bin 14 wine tasting (#2) — a month ago
Ah, the Yorkville Highlands... more than just the fabled place where I totaled my car last fall. Those rocky hillsides produce some sensational juice and this wine is no exception. Inky and hedonistic AF, but pulls it off with elegance, tannic structure and enough vibrancy to elevate this wine far beyond guilty pleasure. And besides, what else would you want with a bacon cheese burger & onion rings?
Blueberry coulis and black pepper fade into violets and warm spice on the finish. Definitely opened this bottle too early but have no regrets. I look forward to seeing how bottle #2 evolves over the next few years. All hail, Theodora, Queen of Petite Sirah!

Bordeaux tour #2: Well balanced. Nothing crazy. Just a nice Bordeaux. Definitely worth buying again. — 16 days ago
