Red
2018 Dirty and Rowdy Mourvèdre Rodnick Farm Chalone
Had with turkey day dinner. So fresh and so clean! Plenty of red brambles, lush green herbs, with a bright acidity- getting notes of red vines and pomegranate as well. A match made in heaven with dark meat turkey and cranberry sauce.

Red
2014 Azienda Agricola San Giuseppe Rosso di Montalcino Stella di Campalto Sangiovese

Good vintage with excellent pure Sangiovese character (red fruit, spice and dusty earth). Elegant and light on its feet too with little wood detectable. Certainly better (and more consistent with my own style preferences) than most Brunello, but not sure this is worth the hefty tarrif. I’d be a buyer at $50.

Red
1994 Château Beau-Séjour Bécot St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend

Popped and poured. Light to medium garnet color. Nose of dried red berry fruits, mushroom, wet earth and a little tobacco. Similar flavors on the palate along with red plum and cedar cigar box. Medium acidity, tannins mostly fully resolved, medium body. Sweet red fruit note on the finish. Very nicely aged mature Bordeaux. Not sure what else you can ask for. Have 1 bottle left that I will drink in the next year or so.

    1/23/18, 2:54 PM - I know your note is positive, but I think I liked this bottle more than you did. (Thanks for sharing it!) I thought it was just a lovely wine in a perfect place in its evolution. The mouthfeel, soft and rounded, was lovely, and there was not a hint of surmaturite, oak flavors, or anything overdone. I thought this was way more enjoyable to drink last night than the 2000 Lynch Bages we had next to it (which will probably make older bones but is still years away from being something I could really enjoy).
