2011 Michel Gassier Costières-de-Nîmes Lou Coucardie

Red Rhone Blend more

Overripe, pruney fruit, and hot with a high alcohol content. Not for me.

2013 Di Majo Norante Sangiovese Terre degli Osci IGT

more

1/17/2016 - Al Ehrhardt wrote: NR

I have had this bottling in at lest a half dozen vintages. Was hoping something drinkable for mid week at $9. Way too spoofy with whatever they are using for oak flavors (saw dust, chips, etc). Would not buy again.

Cherries, violets, herbs, leather. Drying tannins. Picked one up on sale at $29. Would not have been happy to pay release prices.

There is a really strong green streak (dill, pine, green pepper) that for me, overpowers everything else. A disappointment, especially at the price.

Open, but still youthful. Black cherries, currants, earth, spice, anise, smoke. Very enjoyable.

2006 Ridge Monte Bello

Santa Cruz Mountains Red Bordeaux Blend more

10/31/2015 - Al Ehrhardt wrote: NR

Always a treat to crack a Monte Bello. Decanted, but probably should have done it a bit earlier. Currants, blackberries, tobacco, dark plums, and some spice. Intoxicating nose. Another winner.

Maybe a bit better than the last bottle, but same notes. Wish I bought more at this price, but I am gun shy on unknown wines from Jon after getting burned or unimpressed many times. I love carignan and this was a nice one.

This was the oldest bottle I have had, and maybe the best, not sure if it was just the vintage. Still very youthful, but mellowed and lost baby fat.

2008 Rivers-Marie Pinot Noir Old Vines Summa

Sonoma Coast more

6/21/2015 - Al Ehrhardt wrote: NR

Excellent, this is why I love Rivers-Marie pinots. Some are too big and chunky for my tastes, but I have just started with this vintage passing on those vineyards. Been on the list since the beginning. Love Summa, and especially the old vines. Delicious tart red fruits (pomegranate, cranberry, tart cherries), thyme, tarragon, earth, and minerals. Long finish. Beautiful on Fathers Day with wild halibut, roasted potatoes, and asparagus/rhubarb/Vidalia onion salad.

2004 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco

Nebbiolo more

6/19/2015 - Al Ehrhardt wrote: NR

I have had several and they have all been excellent. I bought quite a bit, but not nearly enough at $23 upon release, really screwed up. Young with a long life ahead, but delicious now. I rarely post multiple reviews on the same wine, but outstanding quality at this price. Would be happy to drink it once a month for I would predict many more years so this should have been a MULTIPLE case purchase. Don't get me wrong, this isn't complex, mind blowing Barbaresco, but it sure is enjoyable AND it was under $23.

1995 Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia

Nebbiolo more

5/31/2015 - Al Ehrhardt wrote: NR

Decanted about an hour prior to serving. Red fruits (strawberry, raspberry, cherries, red currants), mushroom/truffle, medicinal (menthol/camphor), minerals. Tannins are integrating very nicely. Lovely. Only one bottle left. I bought several many years ago, but of course wish I'd grabbed more.

2010 Tenuta di Valgiano Colline Lucchesi Palistorti

SuperTuscan Blend more

3/6/2015 - Al Ehrhardt wrote: NR

While the merlot and syrah are really pronounced and I usually don't like blends like this, I did really enjoy this wine. Lot's of fruit, but still earth, herbs. My mother grew up near Lucca and it is difficult to find wines from Lucca imported to the US. Will buy a few from future vintages since it is a decent value.

2011 Château d'Or et de Gueules Costières-de-Nîmes Les Cimels

Red Rhone Blend more

1/24/2015 - Al Ehrhardt wrote: NR

This years blend is 50% Syrah, 25% Carignan, and 25% Grenache. I have purchased this in other vintages over the years and also the higher end mourvedre, la Bolida. They are nice values.

Fairly big/rich, dark plums, black currants, black cherries, tobacco, garrique, spice, pepper, and earth. Nice with grilled grass-fed strip steaks.
