It’s been a long day…couple of days actually. I’ve been lucky to get some buffalo loin and this beautiful wine from Colgin to pair. Deep dark fruits, dark chocolate and espresso. The winemaker describes the 2017 vintage as having a sense of clarity and purity, something we could all use a little more of these days. — 15 days ago
Annata Biondi-Santi. This is absolutely delicious. Always special from this producer. Love the color. Classic Sangiovese. Orange rimmed next to the pale red. Balanced between some grippy but delicate tannins and approachable fruit. The nose has some spice and some earth but they don’t bring a kick so much as depth. The bottom line is you can tell it’s great because the wine drinks so fast! — 15 days ago
This is a very tasty Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley.
Lighter on the nose and dry on the palate, with medium plus acidity.
Showing limes, citrus, green apples, grapefruits, light earth and white pepper.
Showing nice complexity with a soft mouthfeel. Juicy and entertaining.
Better on the palate and simpler the nose.
Nicely balanced, crisp and refreshing, and good by itself or with food. A good party wine too.
I paired it with fresh oysters.
12.5% alcohol by volume.

Color of dark purple, look dense. Nose of ripe dark fruits, some milky chocolate, some aldehyde, some spice, some more blackberry and cherry jam, and a bit oaky. Nose is pretty good. Taste follows the nose, with dominant currant and ripe grapes, plus oak, refined tannins, and subtle acidity, a bit peppery spice, lots of flavors and tasty. Aftertaste is also quite long and clean. Just a bit too sweet for me. But a good one. — 15 days ago
