Kalk und Schiefer Blaufränkisch

Ripe #cherry #plum and #darkchocolate notes with #spice #pepper finish. Soft tanning and bright acidity, reminding me of #pinotnoir but spicier and earthier — 2 years ago


Chesler Cabernet Franc Merlot 2004

#LOVE this #2004 #Chesler #Selene #Meritage ($50) #LeDuWines #Nyc This wine is made my one of the trailblazer #FemaleWinemakers in #CA #MiaKlein who prices her wine as she feels she should, not as Napa prices command. Interestingly, this is a Brooding, Muscular, Strapping, #Masculine wine... #Ironic ? As it's made by a #Woman ? :) Intense Spice on the attack (when it first hits your tongue), then immediately #Savory ( #Herbal Sage, Roasted Green Bell Peppers, Tomato Leaf) #BlackFruit (Cassis, Blackberries, Black Cherries & Blueberries... Milk Chocolate, BIG #Spice #BigRedChewingGum (#Cinnamon ), Clove, Black Pepper, #Floral Violet SO much #Complexity So many Layers... I could go on & on. The finish is long... It's Savory, and the Spice sits on the top of the cheeks of your mouth & the top of your tongue (just like when u spit out your stick of Big Red Gum! ;) I can't say enough about this wine. For this price, this wine should have a Cult Following. I almost don't want to tell people about it, so I can buy the rest of the bottles for my self. 👏👏👏🍷👍 60% #CabernetFranc 22% #Merlot 18% #CabernetSauvignon 💃 — 5 years ago

Côte de Brouilly Gamay

Fuller body than most #Beaujolais I have tried. Notes of #chocolate #spice finishing with hint of #leather . Can’t say I like it as younger #beaujolaiscru — 2 years ago

La Fortuna

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2007

Well-aged #brunello, drinking nicely with #chocolate and plummy notes, undertones of #spice. Semi-translucent ruby color tinged with gold around the edges, medium body. — 4 years ago

Ghost Pines

Winemaker's Blend Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Starts out smoothly and finishes with a good bit of #spice. If you like a little bite on the back end - this red will satisfy! Def worth $25 — 5 years ago

In case the balloons go up tonight, this was a good one to go out with. Regardless of outcome, I reckon I will probably be putting on my trousers in the am. Animal spices and crazy intensity. #election2016 #rhoneinpa #spice — 3 years ago

Whoa! Extremely surprised by the #spice and boldness of This #zin. Wow! Love it! I think it was $19 here but totally worth it. I opened it and instantly thought maybe I should go back and buy a case. I think it had a 92 rating in the store. — 5 years ago
