Reminiscing about this amazing value Super Tuscan we had at Officina last week during restaurant week in DC.

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.

2009 Duckhorn Three Palms Vineyard Merlot


Medium body. Not as structured, firm as I expected. Soft and approachable. A pleasant wine.


ミディアムボディ。思っていたよりも硬さはなくて、アプローチし易いワインでした。非常に心地よい飲み口で安定の1本。

Rochioli

Estate Grown Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2012

2012 Rochioli Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

A great combination of bright red fruit and spice notes. Vibrant, classy California Russian Valley pinot noir. Went well with Japanese sukiyaki.

カリピノらしい果実感と様々なスパイスが絶妙なコンビネーションで味わえるピノノワールでした。果実感の強いカリピノとすき焼きとの相性も抜群でした。

Teaderman Vineyards

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Still has everything it needs to age further! Toasty, herbaceous nose of baker’s chocolate, rosemary, oregano, dried black currant, graphite-infused plum bordering on prune, dried blackberry, Madura tobacco, licorice and dark cedar notes. Elegant mouthfeel with chewy tannins, tarragon, cigar, black currant, bramble, graphite shades, dark minerality, blackberry. Cinnamon bark, black cherry, figs, and more for a long and satisfyingly complex finish.#Teaderman #Napa #NapaCab #cab #oakville #TeadermanVineyards #wine #napawine #finesse #depth — 5 months ago
