San Felice 2015 Chianti Classico (DOCG)






San Felice 2015 Chianti Classico (DOCG), $12.99-$15.99, 88 points, poured a deep ruby red with a broad clear rim and very heavy legs.
Soft aromas of cherry fruit with hints of sea mist, a floral vibe, and chocolate were pleasant.
Medium-bodied with good acidity and easy, but supportive, grainy tannins carried a fruity flavor profile steeping with a finish of brisket, plum, tobacco, and black tea.
The 13% alcohol was totally appropriate.
Paired perfectly with my spiced New Zealand rib chops.

Anne Amie Vineyards Cuvée A Amrita 2015 White Wine





Anne Amie Vineyards Cuvée A Amrita 2015 White Wine, $11.04-$14.99, 91 points, poured a very light gold color grading clear at the glass shallows.
Aromas of pome blossoms and honey were soft and pleasant.
Loverly light white wine with good acidity managed a medley of flavors: apricot, honey, citrus and hazel-nutty nicely blended.
Finished well on the trailing palate, barley, ginger, and an unobtrusive 12.6% alcohol.
Varietals were 30.6% Riesling, 23.6% Muller-Thurgau, 23.4% Pinot Blanc, 16.7% Viognier, 4.6% Gewürztraminer, and 1.1% Chardonnay.
Paired fine with our fried chicken.

Château Larose-Trintaudon Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine





Château Larose-Trintaudon Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine, $23.99-$27.99, 89 points, poured core black grading redder than purple toward the thin bleeding wine ring and moderately leggy glass wall.
Aromas of black currants, fennel, cocoa, and a hint of leather were good.
Rather dry red wine, full-bodied, appropriately acidic, between wooly and worn-out tannins with still plenty of red fruit and plum flavors nuanced by translated aromas onto the palate and trailing deep into the finish marked by easy pepper spice and the 13.7% alcohol.
Varietals were 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot.
Paired well with my beef stew.
