One of the nicest wines we've had all summer. Bold, complex, full of fruit and well balanced with outstanding tannins and a long finish.

2009 Mazzoni Piemonte Barbera

Piemonte DOC more

Very nice Barbera. Smokey spice and dried fruit overtones on the nose echo even stronger on the palette with rich well balanced complexity. Super long finish dark fruits, black cherries, tobacco, rich Italian soil and a strong sense of history.

One of the most enjoyable whites we've had in a while. Typical of Italian whites it's not fruity but dry and refreshing. Mostly it said "more......" so we have to find it again.

We seldom pour out a bottle that isn't spoiled. But then again we seldom both taste a Spanish Red and say "It's sweet!" in unison. What a disappointment.

2009 Bodegas Alejandro Fernández Ribera del Duero Tinto Pesquera

Tempranillo more

7/28/2013 - Sniktaw Likes this wine: 90 points

We agree with all the positive feedback that precedes us. Great nose and seems atypical of Spanish wines to us in that it has much more upfront fruits and isn't not overly dry. It was wonderful with stuffed Pablano peppers. We also greatly enjoyed slow sipping throughout the evening and found perfect with a bit finishing chocolate. We'll definately buy more and also try the reserve and grand reserve.

Santa Barbara County more

7/25/2013 - Sniktaw Likes this wine: 95 points

Outstanding Syrah! Best of this variety we've had. Big bold, complex and very interesting. Our first impression was a fascinating smokiness after breathing a wonderful dry fruitiness came forward. Great nose and super long finish. This is a great stand alone wine.

Totally Spanish with no fruitiness but lots of interesting minerals and very dry. Nice everyday drinker for $10. Would pair great with spicy food or old cheese.
