Armando Parusso - Barolo Mariondino
There is a very distinct "ripe peach" aroma on the nose! Mouth-watering and luscious, nice balance with velvety tannins, and a smooth finish. Very unexpected for a Barolo - in a blind tasting, no one guessed that's what it was.
Vientos - Alcyone
A surprising treasure from Uruguay, this tannat is unbelievably velvety and rich - almost like a chocolate syrup.
Tournelle - L'Uva Arbosiana
Strong, earthy nose; looks like a dark rose, but there are some medium tannins on the palate. A strange yet pleasant wine.
Jayer-Gilles - Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Beaune Blanc
Comte Lafond - Sancerre
Tried this wine during the appetizer portion of dinner - paired with amuse bouche of creamy goat cheese crostini. Bright and cheerful, less fruity on the nose than many Sauvignon Blancs. Very pleasant.
