Added Sep 3 at 6:43pmFairly simple but decent enough for a North Carolina red blend. Not much in the way of aromatics with just a hint of astringent earthiness. On the tongue there's some ripe black cherry, pencil lead and a touch of that same earth. Medium acid, fairly light on the tannins and a short finish.

Added Sep 2 at 5:58pmExcellent zin from Mauritson's Rockpile vineyard. The nose is full of dark ripe berries and ripe plum. The palate is also loaded with ripe blackberry, black cherry, a touch of prune, just a hint of spicy smoke, nice acidity, finely grained tannins and a medium long finish.

Added Sep 1 at 7:14pmFairly generic and mundane sangio. Not a lot going on with this Rosso di Montalcino, some subtle black cherry on the nose, a bit black cherry and a touch of leather on the palate with some scratchy tannins, medium (-) acidity and a short finish.

Added Aug 27 at 6:27pmReally nice Cotes Du Roussillon blend of grenache blanc and marsanne. The nose has ripe apricot, a bit of flint and some yeast. On the tongue is fig, golden delicious apple, a touch of salinity, nice acidity and a medium finish.

Added Aug 25 at 7:06pmThis Virginia red blend started off half way decent but faded fast. A blend of 38% Merlot, 27% Cab Franc, 14% Malbec, 11% Cab Sauv and 10% Petit Verdot, initial impression came across with some red berries, a touch of earth and a hint of oak. All of this dissipated fairly quickly leaving a hint of fruit, slightly chalky tannins and medium short finish.

Added Aug 22 at 8:48pmExcellent Petite Sirah from the CA North Coast. Loads of ripe blackberry, black cherry and just a hint of tar and smoke. Nicely balanced with well resolved tannins, medium acidity and a fairly long unctuous finish. This paired perfectly with grilled marinated london broil.

Added Aug 20 at 7:03pmInteresting Greek white made from the Moschofilero grape. This pours out with a very light pink color and has a subtle nose of lemon pith. There is a combination of citrus, stone fruit and minerality, slightly reminding me of a simple chablis.

Added Aug 19 at 7:40pmReally nice chablis. Plenty of lemon cream, green pear, decent acidity and a bit of salinity on the medium to medium-long finish. I like this wine but it seems to be just a touch flat, may need some more time in bottle to bring out some complexity.

Vetriccie Rosé 2014Compare and Buy
Average Price: $15.00
Added Aug 16 at 4:33pmNice, simple, refreshing French rose. Citrus nose with a hint of fresh orange. On the tongue this tart and nicely acidic with some strawberry, kiwi, lemon and lime. This has a nice pale salmon color and is hitting the spot on this 90+ degree North Carolina afternoon.

Added Aug 15 at 10:49amAnother really nice zin from Valdez. Not as concentrated or complex as some of their other offerings but there is plenty of red fruit, blackberry, medium body, medium to light tannins and a medium finish. This went well with BBQ pork chops on a Friday night.
