  • 2015 Flora Springs Trilogy

    Really nice wine. Very well made. Trilogy by Flora is always so well made, and this 15 is a powerhouse. Chalky black fruit with a hint of black cherry, vanilla, oatmeal cookie, clove, pie spice on the nose and palate. A hint of iodine to the finish. Good black pepper finish. Medium acidity and actually thought this was going to have an insane amount of tannin and oak astringency, basically rendering the finish very short, but this was anything but. Very impressed by the approachability of this wine for such a year that produced so many good, complex wines that need to lay down almost 10 years. This was served pop and pour and it did juuust fine.

  • 2018 McKahn Family Cellars Mourvèdre

    A lot of heat at initial cork pop. This wine is at present a bit out of balance. Very youthful and sweet fruit front which was maybe a little TOO disjointed. I actually let the remaining 650ml of this slow-ox for almost two days. Came back to show a much improved wine. Good acidity on the front. Mulberry and brambleberry fruit on the front. Purple fruit and black brambly fruit to the finish. This wine is just getting started. I really think this needs about 4 years of bottle age more than anything showing how balanced and soft it had become after 2 days. If you're going to drink this, slow-ox this for at least a day.

  • 2013 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

    Firing from all directions. Sat down with this beautiful wine served pop and pour. Poured a dark black cherry cola color. Nose actually has a lot of young black cherry and blackberry going on. Smells very new world-ish. The palate is classic Italian. Moderate acidity on the front. Dark cherry cola, fig, young tobacco. Gives way to an herbal finish with mostly stiff tannic influence but there's a hint of toast on the tannin. Thoroughly impressed with this wine in its youth, as I have always really wanted to hold these massive Brunellos at least 10 years to give them proper time to develop but I'm really happy with the way this expressed. I was hoping to give this one a few hours to develop but it was gone within an hour. Went impeccably well with Italian fare. Drink or hold this beast!

I've been to the winery a few times and really enjoy their wines, and the tasting experience. I wanted to mention that I just picked up several of the '12 Cabernet Sauvignon and '12 Cabernet Franc from wine.com for like $38 and $39 which is such a great price (I don't normally buy from wine.com as their prices are usually too high, but not in this case). I bought a few and tried both and then re-ordered more ;-) Anyways, just wanted to pass the tip on as there's nothing like getting a great price on the wines you love. Best, John
