Monthly WTF wine night with a theme of “something to impress”. As always, wines were tasted blind.

This was so young, but it was great to get a feel for where this is going...could be stellar in 5-7yrs. Cardamom, black tea, Dusty and underripe raspberries on the nose. High acid, black cherries, tar and rose petals round out the palate. Needs lots of time. I called this Cabernet Franc from right bank.

Dark and brooding. Approachable for a Valdicava.

Happy days, nose like being locked in stables with black foot prosciutto, mouth all softly drying tannins and sweetly savouried loveliness.

Great Wines of Italy SFO. The official 2019 guidebook online at www.jamessuckling.com/event/great-wines-italy-usa-2019-guidebook . Not rating since I’m using one glass and most of these wines were only open for a little bit before tasting. Super fun night. Incredible wine. One of the best of the night.
