Les Jalets Crozes Hermitage Syrah 2016


Solid #syrah with #gamey touches and that sort of lavender black olive spice with potential for bottle aging. Very pleasant. #rhone #hermitage #crozeshermitage — 19 days ago

Tua Rita

Rosso dei Notri SuperTuscan Blend 2016

Greg Ballington

Reminiscing about this amazing value Super Tuscan we had at Officina last week during restaurant week in DC.
2016 Tua Rita Rosso dei Notri
Maremma, Tuscany, Italy
Restaurant week at Officina and a perfect wine for our three course meal. Thank you Natalie for the recommendation. Deep ruby red in appearance. Took some time to open up on the nose but showed layers of mocha, floral, touch of minerals, blue and black fruits and spices. Medium tannins (5.5/10) with balanced acidity and a medium plus body. Plush Merlot definitely comes through in the mid palate with black currants, black cherries, chocolate, espresso and a touch of earthiness. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2023.
Crazy good wine for only $60.00 on a wine list. Made up of 50% Sangiovese with the remainder made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, making this a true Super Tuscan Blend. All the Sangiovese is aged in stainless steel while the rest are aged in barriques. This wine is from an area in the southern part of Tuscany called Maremma, more specifically Upper Maremma in the Colline Metallifare zone. Need to find some more of this IGT. Label is designed by Raffaele De Rosa.

$ - Purchased off the wine list at Officina in DC for $60.00. Retail price is $17.99 at MacArthur’s Beverages.

Columbia Valley Syrah 2017

Nice #washingtonstate #syrah for the price. Give it a bit of time to let loose in the glass, some pepper, fruit-forward and just enough acidity and medium tannin structure. Good stuff for ~$12 at Total Wine. — a month ago

La Vialliere Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2015

Delicious, bramble fruit wave greets you up front but then you get that wet stone taste and a little bit of spice at the end; velvety tannins trail off for a while. Great #rhone #syrah wine but the 2015 bottle prices seem to be getting a little out of hand. This Syrah paired pretty well with a Lamb Souvlaki plate at a BYOB Greek restaurant - I have to say the wine outshone the kebabs, though. — 5 months ago

T'n'S Blocks Hudson Vineyard South Syrah 2015

I wanted to try another Hudson #syrah from the same vintage to contrast against the Keplinger. Similar fruit profiles, but very different winemaking. Where the Hangmans was rich, lush and open this is more tightly coiled. A little less alcohol, a touch more acidity, and a more savory wine with more meaty and iron notes. The Keplinger drinks great now but this wine should vastly improve and should really be something in about 10 more years. — a year ago

Cabeça de Toiro Reserva Touriga Nacional Castelão 2014

40/30/30 % blend of #touriganacional, #castelão and #syrah ; Fragrant with wild cherry, vanilla, touch of cola. Succulent acidity, tannins that enfold your mouth and plenty of length in the finish. #portugueseredblend — 2 months ago

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2015

Crú Flight N° 12: Tour De France 3 - Definitely the biggest of the three, concentrated black fruit, laid-back oak and some spice that starts to develop once it’s rested for a while. Tannins are muscular and bring a long finish. The style is more like a #newworld #syrah - think California or Australia. — 7 months ago
