It’s a G thang. Not a well-liked vintage, so adjust flavors with your mind. Rim to rim black concentration. Black cherry and blackberry, dried black currant, espresso, licorice; dark chocolate, black pepper and violet aromas. Black cherry stays true to olfactory perceptions, add bing, dried cranberries, red currant reduction, basil, cracked pepper, and dried cherry. This number broke my berry abacus, and I could not imagine it in a better vintage. I think I appreciate what the tough vintage made Mr Ahnfeldt adjust to. This is leaner, and the cherry lends it a super T touch. I like the cherry. .

This is an interesting red blend. I guess because here are so many different varietals in this blend you get a little bit of everything. Definitely a mixture of dark fruits, primarily blueberry and blackberries there are several other minor scents on your nose. Even with some time in the decanter the was a jammy wine. It did relax a bit by the second glass. It is a nice full bodied blend. Because of all the different grapes you get a bit of everything on the palate. Some nice cigar box, dark cherry, touch of leather and hints of chocolate. It had a good drinkability level. Meaning that the wine was easy drinking and did not last long before the decanter was empty. Definitely a good wine for friends and conversation. #Bootlegwineworks #napacounty #Oakville #California #redblend — 2 years ago
Ripe red and black fruits sweet ripe tannins. It’s a very delicious wine. It seems a little simple though, not much complexity with no tertiary aromas or flavors and the alcohol feeling for me is on the high side. Very good. #redblend #redfruitblackfruit #californiazinfandel #sonomawine — 7 months ago
I found this bottle stashed away in one of my chillers. I had thought I had finished off the last of this a while ago. This wine is still drinking great even at 15 years. A testament to this producer! So a happy night enjoying this wine. I have reviewed before so I will not bore you again. #clifflede #napavalley #stagsleapdistrict #claret #redblend — 2 years ago
Domaine Petroni 2015 Corse Rouge (SRP $20): Here’s a very enjoyable wine from the mountainous Mediterranean island of Corsica. Composed of 50% Nielluccio (widely planted in the region), 35% Syrah and 15% Grenache, this fresh, well-balanced blend has a lively jolt of acidity supporting flavors of bramble berries, plum, and violets. A lovely addition to the dinner table; I enjoyed a glass with lamb biryani. For those of you into wine ratings, this red blend made #72 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2017. If you’re in the DC metro area, you should be able to find this bottle at UnWined wine shop. #Corsica #CorsicanWine #wine #Nielluccio #wine #winewriter #winelover #redblend — 2 years ago
