    Italian! The wine screams from the first moment your nose picks up the cherries, soil, and leather.
    The palate follows the nose with cherries, earthy tones, and leathery finish. There is good acid upfront, followed by a high wall of tannins. Just a nice Nebbiolo that is approachable and tasty now, though time will soften the tannins likely add a bit more complexity.
    Great price performer if you want a nice wine that doesn't let you forget that it is Italian. Drink now with a short decant, or hold.

  • 2008 Elian Da Ros Vin de Table Français Sua Sponte

    Tasted over two days. Aromatically interesting. Made from grapes with botrytis, there's a funk on the nose, there's bitter, there's butter, and there's a salted fruit component to the nose as well.
    Texturally there's a richness upfront that highlights a very creamy mid-palate which then segues to a salty and acidic finish.
    Tastes like a salty and buttery pineapple creme brulee. Interesting wine that grows on me as it warms up in the glass. I'd drink it now, rather than hold. I think the intensity of flavor is where it's at and do not think the acid will carry it too much further.

  • 2004 Les Tourelles de Longueville

    A fairly expressive nose suggests dusty, and sun drenched, roadside blackberries, complete with herbal scents of grass, violets, cedar and juniper.
    Medium bodied juice slides over the palate, dark and dusty while still retaining bright acid and segueing into some finely textured and drying tannins.
    The palate is incredibly expressive, the blackberries, some earl grey tea, the cedar, and a bit of white pepper are all up front, then the mid palate herbal tones resolve into dusty spices on the way to a long drying finish.
    Still quite vibrant, this is a really pleasing wine that is in a great place and still has plenty of life to go. Drink or hold.
