Rainoldi

Brut Rosé

Underripe wild strawberry, clove, smoke and blood orange rind, holly berry, dried rose petal and lemon threads interweaving electrically. Very lemony pink grapefruit on the palate drying immediately. Tangerine pith, chalky, with dried star fruit, bing cherry, marigold, and shadows of tar. #nebbiolo #valtellina #chiavennasca #northernitalianwines #Rainoldi #brutrosé #bubbles #sparklingwine #obscure #brut — 3 years ago

2005 Chrysalis #Virginia #vawine #Norton. Seriously one of the best Nortons I've had. Loads of sweet black cherry, plum, fig plus clove anise and hint of leather. Lively and fresh. Silky finish. #wine #sommelier#sommelier#sommelier #somm #unique #obscure — 6 years ago

2006 Borgo San Daniele 'Arbis Ros' from Friuli, Italu. NERD ALERT. 90% Pignolo 10% Cabernet. Rich black cherry and plum interspersed with herby pepper, leather and vanilla spice. Firm and long and slightly velvety. Craving lamb or wild boar for this one. #wine #italy #friuli #sommelier#sommelier#sommelier #somm #obscure #unique — 6 years ago

2010 Chateau Z Matohie #Virginia #Vawine. 1/3 Norton, 2/3 Bourquiniana. WOW! I swear if you blind tasted this wine you would think it's warm climate Pinot noir. Violet and rose petal aromas plus overripe cherry, jammy raspberry and slight pepper and spice notes. Fresh and lively and soft. Amazing stuff. #wine #sommelier#sommelier#sommelier #somm #unique #obscure #experimental — 6 years ago

2005 Davenport #Kansas #Norton. Lean style which is unusual as Norton isn't usually a lean wine. Slightly underripe. Tart dark cherry, boysenberry and plum jam. Hints of leather and forest floor. Clean and soft. Not bad. #wine #sommelier#sommelier#sommelier #somm #unique #obscure — 6 years ago

2010 Stone Hill 'Cross J' #Missouri #Mowine #Norton @stonehillwinery Reserve level. Dark and smokey. Ripe black cherry, black raspberry, currant mixed with bacon fat, leather and black pepper. Velvety and fresh. Still a young wine but in 10 years this will be amazing. #wine #sommelier#sommelier#sommelier #somm #unique #obscure — 6 years ago

2006 Westphalia #missouri #mowine #Norton Reserve. Holy sweaty horse saddle! Loads of Brett. Dark cherry, boysenberry, wet forest floor plus hints of clove and vanilla. Soft and silky. Just a hair too much Brett and some volatile acidity however and a tad fizzy. #wine #sommelier#sommelier#sommelier #somm #unique #obscure — 6 years ago
