borderline corked, not what you would expect.
Ama - Chianti Classico San Lorenzo
Bit early, needs several more years. Tannin. Cassis, liquorice in the finish.
Louis Guntrum Niersteiner Bergkirche Riesling Kabinett
Great with curry/chicken/mango/cashew dish. Just enough acidity to stand up to the sweetness in the dish and the possible cloyness in the wine. Melon, honey, lycÃ©e, pear and citrus. Great mouthfeel makes you want to take another swag. Yummy.
Pio Cesare - Barolo
Soft integrated tannins, hot nose, red fruit, little austere, okay but not great
Turley - Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard
Perfect to celebrate America's Indepenence with this gem and a big, charbroiled, juicy burger. This wine is at its top, displaying big red fruit, integrated tannins, typical nose. I'd give it a 94!
