Firriato - Chiaramonte
Excellent example of Sicilian Nero d'Avola. Very pleasant dark berries and pomegranate in the nose and a medium-body, luscious and complex taste. Mild tannins and a long finish. A crowd pleaser.
Quite unimpressive for a Haut-Medoc. Very deep purple color which was promising but failed to deliver. Not enough structure and depth. Very mild tannins. It leaves you thinking "the must be more to it" but there isn't.
Jayson - Red
A powerful, yet balanced, example of Cab, nice tannins and dark cherries and berries in the nose. Overall a very good choice for somebody looking for a classic California Cab.
Gainey - Red Table Wine Patrick's Vineyard
If you like luscious,fruit-forward cabs you will certainly like this "Bordeaux blend". Mature dark berries and cherries in the nose and a jammy, yet complex and pleasant taste. Very mild tannins.
Cuvee du Vatican - Chateauneuf du Pape
Chateauneuf du Pape is probably my favorite French wine. Vatican is not a top producer but I enjoyed this bottle with a few friends. Typical intense color and sweet aroma, medium body and a lovely complexity.
