This ups the nerdiness of my German wine section to an 11. Texture - weight - minerality - orange zest - peach - salinity.
Wow. This was a wine for the intelligentsia. Delicious fruit, flint, smokiness, and a ton of minerality. At $35, it might seem steep, but this is a lesson in what wine can do.
Shipping Free Today, 91 points wine spectator, bright and juicy, with a brambly frame around a core of energetic cherry and raspberry fruit. Tobacco, licorice root and singed alder notes hang in the background for now but should meld with the core over time. Solid. Best from 2015 through 2025. 3,000 cases made
Another delicious treat that I look forward to. It's $18 a bottle, but it delivers so much more than most other peers at the price point.
Such a delicious wine and so worth the $60 price. Almost like a fantasy blend between Nebbiolo and Sangiovese (although it's really Sangiovese & Malvasia Nera). Very young now, but I'd love to see this evolve in 5-10 years.
Stunning old vine Carignan/Grenache blend from the South of France. Best part is...it's $15.
This is the Ultimate $10 wine and the Ultimate Pinterest wine because at $10 it is not only a deal that most can afford but it is a FANTASTIC WINE and has a radical label for art purposes. This lovely wine from Portugal is an amazing Douro wine that is loaded with dark, dark flavors and the ripe cherry, peppercorn, cinnamon, plum, and plum fruit dance around the silky almost silk sheets like texture. The olives, tar and black currant on the long finish put the exclamation point on this wine.
