Primus Veramonte 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red. Aromas of rich chocolate, coffee, and cassis with notes of mixed dark fruit and raspberry. Extraordinarily rich and mouth-filling, with flavors of cassis, coffee and toasted oak that grace a well-structured body, full of texture with ripe, supple tannins on the lingering finish.

45% syrah, 40% carignan, 15% grenache. The nose starts with a strong hit of dirt then manure, but with juicy blackberries underneath. The flavor doesn't have the fruit, but is an interesting combination of olive and fennel seeds. Next to no finish.

BBQ potentie. Licht geur, prettige schoenenzweet. Drinkbaar, sappig, voor niet roodwijn liefhebbers prima. Paul van Kats wijn

Artisan juni proeverij - De smaak is opvallend zacht en soepel. De hinten van sappige bessen en de zachte zuren geven de wijn zijn elegante karakter. Lichte tonen van vanille in de afdronk

Aromas of mocha, coffee and black cherry are compelling from the start. Upon tasting, flavors of ripe blackberries and red currant abound with a hint of leather. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has firm tannins that give a nice lingering finish. Therersquo;s nothing like a well-made Cabernet from Napa Valley!

A clean, dry white made from the Jacquère grape variety. With tangy, chalky minerals and floral fruit flavors, it is a natural match for shellfish.

Trockener, aromatischer Weisswein mit intensiven Aromen nach frischen Haselnüssen und Butter. Im Gaumen weist er eine angenehme Säure auf, ist rassig und gut strukturiert. Ein reicher und komplexer Wein.

The 2008 La Mano Mencia Roble spent 6 months in oak. It is a glass-coating opaque purple color with an alluring perfume of mineral, spice box, cedar, boysenberry, and black cherry. Sweetly fruited, savory, and built for pleasure, it finishes with no hard edges. This lengthy effort is a great value that over-delivers in a big way. It is a splendid introduction to the Mencia grape. ** SOLD OUT **

The 2008 Barolo Vigneto La Villa emerges from the glass with generous dark red fruit, flowers, menthol, pine and licorice, all supported by firm, massive tannins. French oak gives the wine volume and textural depth, but without being intrusive. A plush, authoritative finish rounds out this stylish, totally fabulous Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. ** Only 6 in Stock **

Smooth red currant flavors come up against meatier aspects to the tannins, where the wine feels a little rough and vegetal. A grilled steak will cancel out those tannins and bring the juicier flavors forward.
