Nice nose of grapefruit and citrus peel. Medium weight. Tons of minerals. Pretty good wine, but nothing to get overly excited about. Needs to be serve chilled to keep the alcohol in check.

2005 Mitolo Shiraz G.A.M.

McLaren Vale more

3/9/2015 - ron m wrote: NR

Good for the style. Very rich, dark berry profile, yet nicely balanced. Some wild herbs add interest. Still tannic on day 1, and drank better on the second day when it showed more mellow.

Very nice. Minerals all day, pomelo, mouthwatering acidity. Nose and entry somewhat muddled but for a simple wine it delivers the goods.

Deep gold; floral nose showing apricots and lanolin; rich palate with stone fruits and tons of minerals; oxidative style; a little hot. Overall pretty good but the oxidative notes were a little on the strong side. Fantastic pairing to Skate Meuniere.

Thanksgiving 2014. This is in a great spot. One hour of air and it bursts out with cassis graphite and coffee. Waves of dark fruits on the palate. Wonderful finish. Winner.

Thanksgiving 2014. This went so fast that I had to ask my wife for a small taste from her glass. Highly enjoyable but very young. Sweet. Fruit profile dominates at this point. Crowd favorite.

Decent bottle. Red fruited, quite floral, a dash of minerals, low alcohol. Straightforward and mostly present on the front palate. Solid value.

2010 Cayuse Grenache God Only Knows

Walla Walla Valley more

7/9/2014 - ron m wrote: NR

First GOK. Drank very much like a young 2007 chateuneuf. Settled down after 3 hours. Young, fruity, kirschy, concentrated, exuberant. Light on the mid palate with good complexity. No funk. Day 2: mellowed down considerably, more civilized but lost some of its edge. Needs a few years, but didn't feel like a long ager. Overall, I was left undecided about this, and the wife liked it.

2011 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Red Rhone Blend more

6/11/2014 - ron m wrote: NR

Pretty good. Half the bottle decanted for 2 hours and opened up nicely, and the other half waited until day 2 where it showed up more subtle and less energetic. Classic grenache profile, kirsch, garrigue. Feels lighter than it really is. Overall well balanced, classic, but ultimately straightforward. Somewhat clipped finish. Drink over medium term.

Sangiovese more

6/8/2014 - ron m wrote: NR

Solid, classic, well made Brunello. Red fruited floral nose; palate shows cherries, licorice, Asian spice; well balanced, nicely integrated, good acidity, but not much complexity; plenty of fine grain tannin, and it was just as good in day 2: will improve for quite a few more years.

2008 Passopisciaro Sicilia Passopisciaro

Nerello Mascalese more

5/30/2014 - ron m wrote: NR

Very good wine, and an interesting one. I get the Chambolle references, though I found it somewhat of a stretch. Still, the wine does show some characteristics that are unusual for Sicilia. Cherry dominated, full bodied but constructed over a deceptively lighter mid palate and lifted by ample acidity. Finish is very good - long, bone dry, refreshingly acidic, and with plenty of fine grain tannin. This wine will keep developing for quite a while and has excellent potential. A winner.

5/31/2014 - ron m wrote: NR

Needed two hours to open up. Cherries and spice on the nose and on the palate; good acidity, medium bodied, still pretty firm but does not detract. some cherry cola. good concentration. Restrained style, as expected. Last glass was the best. Very enjoyable and perfect with the Copper River Salmon.

Solid. Dark crimson; spicy nose with a pleasant characteristic stink; mid weight, nice acidity, savory; medium finish. A bit rough, and without the punch of the best vintages, but charming nonetheless.

2010 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses

Chardonnay more

5/19/2014 - ron m wrote: NR

Excellent wine. Highly enjoyable now, and destined to be great in 10 years. Straw colored with a green tinge, lemon peel peaches and lanolin on the nose, peach citrus and slate on the palate. Intense, harmonious, and great density. Wonderful finish, long and dry with tons of minerals and some salinity. Even more seamless on day two.

2008 Sartarelli Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Balciana

more

5/17/2014 - ron m wrote: NR

This bottle was better than the first, partially because of a better food pairing (pasta con cavolfiore). Big aromatics leaning tropical, full bodied, a bit too sweet and a tad hot, long minerally finish. Not really my style, but as noted this worked quite well with the food.
