2016 Domaine de Cabasse Gigondas Red Rhone Blend

Nice forest floor on the nose - very easy wine to introduce French wines to a customer
Lighter than I would have thought in the glass very bright ruby colors as well
Tannins half way through the palate that give way to fruit and vanilla
2 or 3 year old barrels but used for white wines previously
Slight white pepper as well- I think the Mourvèdre really adds a lot to the wine
Need to open up. PNP is completely different on the nose. Definitely more fruit forward- it may need a good hour but worth it

    I did taste it with the owner in the room
    2013 is a great vintage as well

2013 Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

85 points
PNP with aeration
Hints of Oak and slight pepper
Almost a dark ruby red color in a glass
Classic California cab smell
Flat up front with a tannic overtone that dries out the mouth
Might need a steak with this but the transitions are fast and not smooth
Leaves a little bit of grit on the teeth

2014 Masi Campofiorin Veronese IGT Corvina Blend, Corvina

This anniversary 50 Years Campofiorin is a special version. Has grapes from all MASI vineyards. That by default makes this wine so unique. Purple to Garnet color, bright clear nectar in the glass. Nose gives red forest fruits, not aggressive but with depth that will disclose more as Ypourgio drink along. Palate has even more depth. Cherry, dry fruits some spices at the finish. Tannins are present with acidity that rounds the wine up. Be sure to decant 1 hr before and you will enjoy it. It's a very young wine, promising to give much more when cellared for 5-10 yrs. Score 91 will rise I believe with age......

    May was really raining here in DFW area
    I was in Venice when we had this one. It was ok - 88 or 87 is about right. I would not purchase a case - I would invest in a better Barolo
    Pallidino suits my taste buds better. This is just my personal opinion
