  • I posted this question because someone on another thread referred to Merlots as "tannic" and I don't think of them that way.  But I also realize I am less sensitive to tannins than to, for example, acidity.  I have to stop and think about whether tannins are high or medium, although I can kind of quantify them if I stop and think.I think of tann...

  • Mastroberardino Taurasi Riserva 1977

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was amazingly young, vibrant and constantly changing. It opened up with aromas of cherry pip smoke, sweet cream and floral notes. As time passed it started to take on notes of dried coca and classic fruitcake. On the palate, it was silky and refined with intense blackberry fruits, tart plum and minerals. Tart red fruits and blackberry l... Read More

  • Aglianico del Vulture DOC Likos

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent example of the Aglianico grape from the volcanic soils of Rapolla in the Vulture zone of Basilicata. Giuseppe Mastrodomenico and his father are working hard in the vineyard to make high quality wine. The 2007 Likos shows a complex bouquet, is richly textured with a firm tannic structure. On the palate there is an intense feeling of che... Read More

  • Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley. Funny how Dunn was ... Read More
