Jacky scored this wine: 89/100

Heady aromas of prune, macerated cherry, sweet spice, and tobacco feature on the nose. The palate is full-bodied, broad, and velvety in texture. Rich, sweet fruit abounds on the mid-palate, lingering through to the off-dry finish. This sumptious red has just enough freshness for balance.

Jacky scored this wine: 90/100

Wonderfully fragrant, floral nose, underscored by notes of black cherry, blueberry, earthy hints and subtle spice. Very elegant and silky on the palate, with lovely freshness, full-body, and a concentrated fruity core. Ripe, powdery tannins linger long on the dry finish. Very polished Valpolicella!

Jacky scored this wine: 87/100

Bordeaux-like on the nose, with cedar, balsamic, dark fruits and hints of eucalyptus on the nose. Fresh acidity lifts the firm, linear palate structure nicely. Tannins are ripe and broad. Well-crafted, as always for Masi, but lacking a little generosity on the mid-palate.

Jacky scored this wine: 88/100

A robust offering, with a deep purple hue and medium body. Aromas of wild blueberry, candied cherry, and balsamic hints reveal themselves upon aeration. This fresh, delicately sparkling – secco style red- has soft tannins, and a bright, fruity finish (10g/L residual sugar).

Intense aromas of lemon curd, quince, and baked red apple feature on the nose. Racy acidity ably balances the sweet finish on this medium bodied, zesty, honeyed dessert white wine. A perfect partner for lemon meringue pie!

Memorable Wine

Domaine Leflaive Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet 2004


First Wine

Hard to recall... probably a drop of Champagne just after I was born.


Unusual Wine Experience

Almost falling off the top off a slippery 20ft. tall stainless steel tank while doing a punch down. Yikes!


Current Fav Wine

Mt. Riley Pinot Noir from Marlborough, NZ is a fantastic every day red.
