2010 St Anne - Cotes du Rhone Villages Cuvee Saint Gervais
A really excellent wine that was great on pop and pour and then evolved over the next two hours. First flavors were primal - mushroom, earthy, thick and rich and then the vibrancy emerged with strawberry and raspberry. Later came the thyme, rosemary and garrique flavors. Very impressive for the price and was perfect for root vegetables and braises. Looking forward to finishing the bottle, and to the next one!

2010 St Anne - Cotes du Rhone Villages Cuvee Notre Dame des Cellettes
Relatively light bodied CdR, bitter cranberry, but light on its feet, deceptively easy to drink. Had Pinot Noir texture but vastly different flavors. Certainly some brush, light chocolate flavors, herbs, well structured but lacking on the finish...maybe this will be remedied by air. Drink up.

2011 Rigatteri - Graffiante
Medicinal, nose, musty like balsamic vinegar with a dryness recalling the sun-drenched fields of Sardinia. Garnet colored, meat blood, lots of dusty tannins, some cherry under there, but otherwise either needs lots of air still or just going to be perpetually funky, not sure which. Structure it certainly has, but was hoping for more - still worked well as a pizza wine. The 2008 seemed better to me. Will revisit tomorrow.

2007 Krupp Brothers - Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard
Gorgeous, beautiful aromas explode from the glass right on pop and pour - fruit forward but round and plush Cabernet, with black current, dusty tannins, herbs and a beautiful pairing for our prime rib. Really just what the doctor ordered. Dark purple, slow, medium legs, few hard edges if any. Not sure why this was only getting 90-91? Just because it was so elegant and not flabby? Please.

2010 Vitalonga - Terra di Confine
I guess this is coming into its own and rounding out...makes for a nice daily drinker with plus black fruits with Merlot providing a nice structure. As others have said, the best of the 3 bottles I've had. A bit of a green bell pepper undertone, but not unpleasant. Great with red sauces or with dark chocolate.
