Spinetta - Il Gentile di Casanova
this is developing into a Tuscan masterpiece. scents and flavors of dark cherries, spice, tobacco and leather combine with wonderful minerality that goes wonderfully with food and meld into a long smooth creamy finish. plenty of ripeness but not overdone, it is perfectly balanced and drinking beautifully right now.
I have had this wine many times and it is sometimes tighter than it should be. now--actually drinking better than ever--finally opening up into a full blown fine wine
still drinking very well. balanced and nuanced.
Conn Valley - Eloge
a magnificent bordeaux style blend in a Napa wine. complex-- with notes of cedar, spice, black fruit, truffle and leather but with plenty of fruit, a big body and smooth tannins. hugely fine on the finish.
Sierra Salinas - Casa Mira Alicante
this is a huge, bold Spanish beauty. great with cheese, or barbecue, or any kind of grilled meat, it is not subtle but very enjoyable if you love the big ones like I do. showing no signs of age.
