Introduction

Low turnout as it the shoulder travel season.

Flight 1 (14 notes)

White
2016 Albert Boxler Edelzwicker Reserve France, Alsace
87 points
Always a good wine in the aromatic style with notes of ripe apricots, orange flowers, and apple. Very slightly off dry, the wine is balanced and complex, just a hint of tannins, moderate body, very supple and has a lingering fruit finish.
White
2017 La Marca di San Michele Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Capovolto Italy, Marche, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore
86 points
Uncomplicated nose of white clover, this wine is crisp and balanced and is wonderful in the finish. At $25 a bit overpriced for fresh sipper but if you are buying I'll drink it.
White
2017 Chateau Feuillet Valle d'Aosta Italy, Valle d'Aosta
Full and balanced the nose is marred by the use of an Altec cork. Despite this the ripe floral notes are there and the wine is full and supple. Pity about the cork.
White
2017 Deperu Holler Fria Colli del Limbara IGT Italy, Sardinia, Colli del Limbara IGT
flawed
An off character of menthol dominates this wine.
White
2017 Cantina Terlan Pinot Bianco Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige, Alto Adige - Südtirol
88 points
Balanced and full this is a lovely white, a note of yeast but mostly a rich citrus nose, without oak, a lovely stainless steel wine. Clean finish and good linger.
White
2017 Cantina Terlan Sauvignon Terlano Winkl Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige, Terlano
90 points
Someone did not like my use of the term cat pee but this wine is best described by saying it. Intense and supple this lovely wine is the essence of Sauvignon Blanc. Pricy but worth it.
Red
2016 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra Terra Alta Spain, Catalunya, Tarragona, Terra Alta
89 points
Moderate color with a spicy Grenache nose. A really lovely wine in the moderate style, supple and balanced with enough to stand anything but light enough to work with fish dishes. Great value
Red
2016 Valle Reale Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Italy, Abruzzi, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
84 points
The color was bright and purple, the nose developed but mostly indistinguishable, lots of drying tannins, acid balanced. $13 but there are more interesting wines around, this was not compelling.
Red
2017 Domaine Dupeuble Pere et Fils Beaujolais Kermit Lynch Selections Label France, Burgundy, Beaujolais
88 points
Fresh and lovely, classic Beaujolais. Great price I bought a case for the winter.
Red
2017 Quentin Harel Beaujolais-Villages Les Grandes Terres France, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Beaujolais-Villages
85 points
Nice but a bit minty and unfocused, not enough fruit and not clean enough for me to spend $22.
Red
2017 Domaine Chignard Fleurie Les Moriers France, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Fleurie
88 points
Rich but the flavors were still unfocused and I passed at $26. The wine was balanced and had a nice structure.
Red
2014 Domaine Blain Soeur et Frére Côte de Brouilly Pierre Bleue France, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Côte de Brouilly
flawed
Way too rustic stinky tonight. Reminds of a hair permanent, and sweaty horse. Opened two bottles both were similar.
Red
2017 Ferruccio Carlotto Schiava Vigneti delle Dolomiti Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige, Alto Adige - Südtirol
85 points
This was nice, a very light red that is spicy and well balanced. Similar to a full bodied rose, but at $27 I can have more fun with two better roses priced at $13.
Rosé
2017 Domaine Poli Patrimonio Clos Alivu Rosé France, Corsica, Patrimonio
88 points
Lovely rose, light salmon color, nice intensity of fruit and good structure, lovely balance. $14
