This was the wine I should have served a week ago. Delicious vibrant nose, you smell the alcohol but it burns off. Amazing that this was a 'reject' wine since it wasn't up to standard for the Rosso. This is delicious with orange and cranberry on the first sip and then a beam of cherry coated with clove and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is thick, very mouthcoating and creamy with subtle vanilla. Came across very different than last weekend's Tuderi. Very good!
Baldacci Family - Pinot Noir Elizabeth's
Here's your crowd pleaser - silky smooth and rich Pinot Noir made in a very extracted style, but it did not come across as flabby or out of place. Vibrant acid, very floral, there was sediment in the neck which was interesting - there was plum, pomegranate, and in a great place now. It may become more elegant in a few years but to me there was no reason to wait to drink this.
Dettori - Tuderi
Yeah this is some funky stuff, extremely light colored grenache my wife's call on "acetone" nose was pretty right on in the aggregate. It took a leap of faith to serve this, especially after a crowd pleasing pinot noir. Had some herbal components and candied fruit but overall as not sure if/when this will come together, hard to evaluate if it was too young, or just naturally a bit disjoint. Kind of fun to drink but my guess is not everyone knew what to make of it. Oh well.
Stefano Amerighi - Syrah Cortona
Woah this is not ready - this is a rich, meaty Syrah that's not really showing its fruit, I get chalk, grilled meat, maybe some plum if anything, but this will turn into something better, but very full bodied and very tannic. Give this 2 more years at least.
Ferrari-Carano - Tresor (Reserve)
Classic Cal-Meritage profile, but actually very smooth and not so tannic as I was expecting but at the same time rich, black and blueberries, some oak. Very consistent with the Parker review in retrospect. Either this is peaking or will be soon.
