Over the long weekend:

2016 Produttori Langhe Neb - good stuff

2015 Venus Universal Dido red - good stuff

2014 Sybille Kuntz Kabinett trocken - more trocken than kabinett, good dose of petrol, tons of acidity

2008 Quinta do Vallado Touriga Nacional - was unimpressed with these in their youth, but they're starting to come around.  Big.  

2013 Mure Clos Saint Landelin Riesling - very good grand cru alsatian.  lots of tropical fruit, good texture, bone dry.

2004 Qunitarelli Valopolicella - Awesome.  Great bottle.

2016 Luis Seabra Xisto Cru Branco - Awesome.  like 1er chablis, but even more minerality and acid.  Cant waite to revisit again this evening.

2016 Luis Seabra Indie Xisto - Awesome.   These two wines were a great intro to Seabra's wines for me and will definetly be seeking out more.


Interesting note on the Xisto Branco. All three bottles of my 2015 were corked and I haven't bothered with anything from them since. It was quite disappointing.

You had mentioned this to me not long ago and it had me nervous opening it.  Our experience with the wine couldnt have been more different.

Over the long weekend

2015 Valle dell'Acate Vittoria Il Frappato 
2015 COS Cerasuolo - solid
2017 COS Rami - first time i didn't enjoy this wine
2018 Tornatore Etna Bianco - solid
2006 Baracchi Ardito Toscana IGT 
1998 Domaine Weinbach Riesling Schlossberg Grand cru Cuvée Ste. Catherine L'Inédit! - meh
1997 Lisini BDM Ugolia - stunning

2015 Valle dell'Acate Vittoria Il Frappato

Can’t deny it’s a well-made wine. It’s just not my style. Candied fruit and savoury notes competing with each other.

I had one last week and felt the same way.  I've really ejoyed previous vintages as lithe elegant expressions of frappato but this one saw too much heat.  I couldnt get over the jolly rancher.

Last night before seeing Gemini Man with a friend.  Both from 375:

2014 Louis Michel Montée de Tonnerre - still young, but lovely.

2009 Lous Michel Vaudesir - mildly oxidized, but drinkable.

After the movie, also from 375:

2000  Léoville Poyferré -  Best showing for this bottling in my experience.  Delicious.  Right in the zone.
