In case you were wondering, THIS is the #wine that won the #pinotnoir #winetasting I posted a few days ago. A very elegant Pinot with delicate yet crunchy red fruit aromas that lie surrounded by dusty, earthy flavors and soft, hugging smoky vanilla undertones. Well done, @hobowinecompany for your #sonoma #centralcoast #pinot #2013 !

Pour ceux qui se demandaient quel vino s'était démarqué de la dégustation de pinot de cette semaine, ce #sonomacentralcoast Pinot Noir de chez Folk Machine/Hobo Wine Co. m'a énormément plus. Du beau fruit rouge croquant s'intégrant aux notes poussiéreuses et terreuses bien sérieuses, le tout se fondant ensuite dans de doux arômes fumés et réconfortants. Belle job!

"BAROLO CHINATO'
🏰 WINERY: CERETTO
📖HISTORY: Il Barolo chinato è un vino aromatizzato, prodotto per aggiunta al Barolo DOCG di zucchero ed alcol etilico nel quale precedentemente sono state poste in lenta macerazione a temperatura ambiente diverse spezie, tra cui la corteccia di China Calissaia, radice dirabarbaro e di genziana, e seme dicardamomo, onde estrarne le componenti aromatiche. All'aromatizzazione segue un affinamento in botte di circa un anno.
Nasce nella zona di produzione del Barolo, a Serralunga d'Alba, in Piemonte, alla fine dell'800, per opera del farmacista Giuseppe Cappellano.
Per la gradazione alcolica tra i 16 e i 17 gradi, il contenuto aromatico ed il gusto dolce-amaro oggi viene usato come elegante fine pasto e come vino da meditazione (in alternativa al Porto, al Marsala vergine o aivini liquorosi in genere). La sua persistenza aromatica si abbina ottimamente con il cioccolato amaro.(fonte Wikipedia)

St Joseph AOP is only few miles away from Lyon, where I grew up. It is usually a lighter and fruitier wine than other Northern Rhône. Up to 10% of Marsanne or Roussanne may be added to a dominant Syrah wine.
.
François Villard, a rising star in the region made this St Jo Reflet cuvée from 6 different parcels in St Joseph. The 2011 vintage has notes of red fruits, black pepper, grilled meat, leather, farmyard. The tannins are slightly stalky. This can easily age for another 5-7 years.
.
The wine is very good but lacks a bit of concentration and the body is a bit thin. Not enough intensity but very well balanced. Wine is retailed at just under £33 in the UK, not cheap. I’d personally prefer to pay less for a mid range or add more 💶💷and splash on a Hermitage for the real va va voom ✨🍷

The nosing of Redbreast whiskey is a first and key part of the overall tasting experience. And as you take a sniff – or three – try keeping your mouth open a little to truly savour the aroma. #redbreast #whiskey #irishwhiskey #nose #tastingnotes

We love this story!
We agree that our Emmolo Merlot is the perfect gift to bring to anyone's home... especially this holiday season. " @allie_regan : One year ago, @danieltcprshowed up on my front porch with a bottle of Merlot. Despite having been taught not to talk to strangers, I invited him in. I mean, who could resist a Merlot....I mean his smile "

#fridaytasting @ewinebc #riverdistrict with Jordan in the Vintage Room.
#winelog #tastingnotes
Featuring @croftport vintage 1994. Harvested from La Quinta da Roêda, in the flatter plains of Duoro Valley, surrounded by the steep hills, trapping in the heat thereby producing some powerful, ripe, fruity grapes.
Sooo delicious and what a surprise. Fruits are delicate with pronounced blueberries, fresh acidity and a spicy finish! Yum!!! Pair this with #cheesecake topped with a lemon glaze and you're on #cloud9. Robert Parker 95pts, Wine Spectator 97pts. 20% abv, $169.

Note: I'm not a big port drinker cuz generally I find it too sweet. But this one I LOVE.

We capped our #wsetlevel3 wine lover reunion @monvinic with these three sweeties:
1) Sígalas Oenopiia Vinsanto 2005 from Santorini // Assyrtiko grape: dried fruit, candied orange peel, full bodied, good acidity, long finish
2) Star of the show Swartland’s Lammershoek Cellar Foot the Straw 2010, Chenin Blanc which was a delicious apricot nectar in a glass-alongside honey and peach. Yum!
3) HM Borges 10-year Madeira. Classic profile with woody, toffee, dried fruits (apricot, fig), and almonds
I confess it all kind of blurs at some point - the good company, so many interesting wines, cozy table...so while it gets a bit hazy (#wineproblems), the Cellar Foot the Straw was the standout 😍👌🤷🏼‍♀️ #winetasting #tastingnotes #sweetwines #dessertwines #madeira #vinsanto #lammershoek #southafricanwine #greekwine #santoriniwine #assyrtiko #cheninblanc #sip #winelovers #monvinic

🍷 As soon as I opened the bottle, intriguing scents started to come out & my nose was allured into the glass.

While aromatic fruits of Luxardo cherries & wild strawberry jam played the principal role, earthly compositions of sandalwood, dried tobacco leaf & Assam black tea became supporting actors. Sweetness of dried apricots & raisins also peaked their heads as exotic spices created mythical air in the background.

Texture on the palate was light yet complex. Dried fruits of apricots, raisins & figs were cherished by warmth of honey, bee wax & juniper berries together with earthy tannins of black tea. Sweet & warm tastes lingered gracefully on the palate as a group of savory, meaty & umami quality showed up, adding wild personality with lasting impressions.

Sunny December Saturday lunch of smoked salmon pasta, with wine pairing recommendation from @drinksintube 😃☉ They recommended their Chablis Premier Cru for this dish, the citrus flavours cut through the creamy dish nicely for a well balanced and tasty match 👌

Chablis is in the northern-most part of Burgundy, and only Chardonnay can be grown. The Premier Cru sites, such as where this wine is from, are located on hillside sites where the soils are less prone to frost and have better drainage. The better aspect also means the wine has more body, and displays more citrus fruit characteristics as opposed to the usual green apple. This was the perfect measure before an afternoon of WSET study!

@blandfordcomptoir has the key to our hearts: a raging selection of Madeira, the iconic wine used to toast the United States Declaration of Independence.
If it's good enough for them...

Tradicional 'bodega' criada em 1910, a Marqués de Tomares está localizada em Fuenmayor, na região conhecida como Rioja Alta e atualmente é gerenciada pelos neto de seu fundador, Román Montaña. Utilizando uvas próprias e também adquiridas de terceiros, produz espumantes, vinhos brancos e, principalmente, tintos tendo como base a 'tempranillo'. No caso do rótulo aqui avaliado, o corte é formado por 90% 'tempranillo' e 10% 'graciano', que é um casta típica de La Rioja. Infelizmente, o vinho experimentado acabou decepcionando, mas a safra 2014, importado pela Porto a Porto, está à venda na Super Adega por R$ 45,10. #vinho #vinhotinto #marquésdetomares #espanha #larioja #rioja #graciano #tempranillo #tastingnotes @portoaporto @superadega.lojaonline @chez_fondue
"The finished bottle of wine, to us, becomes a constantly changing entity where the drinker brings his or her own set of experiences into that bottle like that of a conceptual piece of art. The driving force is to satisfy creative and experimental yearnings and be able to share that with others." John King - West of Temperance 🔸
Fascinating interview with @johnkingjuanrey and @brianojalvo from @westoftemperance winery. To read the full interview go to my blog. 🔸winesofnote.com🔸
