2011 Felsina Chianti Classico

In Chianti Classico on September 17, 2014 at 12:12 pm

felsinaAromas of blackberries, black cherries and Tuscan spices combine on the palate with an utterly sexy, Brunello-like, melted-white-chocolate sensuality.  The Chianti Classico tannins are firm yet lusciously integrated.  Again, the best comparison would be Brunello – layers upon layers of fruit build to a huge, explosively powerful finish.  The wine gives incredible drinking right now, but I have tasted  vintages back to 24 years old –and I can tell you there is no rush with this beautiful wine.  (So be sure to tuck some extra  bottles into your cellar!)

I have to tell you, I love selling this wine.

I was at Berardenga earlier this year, eating at a small café and drinking with several local vintners.  Chianti is an extremely competitive wine region, yet the one wine which all of the vintners could agree on admiring was Felsina.

2007 Sineann Lazare Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet

In Cabernet on September 9, 2014 at 12:31 pm

sineannBeautiful, stunning Napa Cabernet that drinks PERFECTLY and DELICIOUSLY right now.  Yeah, that’s right, crack this baby open NOW.  The good people at Sineann have been aging it for you.  Rarely do many of us get the chance to taste perfectly aged Cabernet: one that is right in the pocket of its most expressive, hedonistic and powerfully fruit-driven evolution.  Here is your chance.

The 2007 Lazare Vineyard opens with a bold expression of pure Napa: Aromas  of crème de cassis, blackberry, wood smoke, vanilla bean  and crushed rocks erupt from the glass.  The broad and expansive mouthfeel gives this well-endowed Cabernet its compelling, yet approachable, power, culminating in a lingering finish of raspberries and ripe Bing cherries with voluptuous texture.  It’s delightfully drinkable now, but cellar-worthy for 10 more years.  There were only 150 cases produced – don’t miss yours!
