Giovanni Rosso Barolo Serralunga d’Alba 2013
Barolo before noon.. that’s a thing, right?
Black truffles and rose petals, underscored by licorice, prosciutto, carried on lilting notes of caramel and sandalwood. Medium bodied: sour cherries and raspberries, leather and orange peel, coalescing in a soft crescendo, veiled in lingering, lace-like tannins.

I have to say this is one of the first red wines I was actually able to enjoy in a long time.
I sold wine for the past 5yrs until a recent career change into the medical industry. Every time I drank wine I had a million questions running through my head 'Who would buy this?' 'How do I sell this?' 'Who is the wine maker?' 'Whats tje oak treatment?' 'What would this retail for?' 'Which buyer can afford this on their list this week?' 'How do I sell against this?' I can't remember the last time I just stopped and drank wine to enjoy it. Just because something is your passion doesn't mean it needs to be a career. My career took sucked out the passion and love of my favorite hobby......wine. Cheers to being back to enjoy it once again!
This guy and sunshine, two of my favorite things. 😍

2006 was a challenging vintage in Bordeaux and certainly overshadowed by the ‘05s and later the ‘09s and ‘10s. Periods of very hot weather interspersed with untimely rainfall and humid conditions kept vignerons on their toes. Despite this, some Chateaux made very good wine and Vieux Chateau Certan is considered one the great successes of the vintage so I was excited to try it.
Deep purple in color. Aromas of crushed purple flowers and dark fruit flavors are augmented with attractive oak influenced notes of vanilla, spice and toast. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied and richly textured with dark plums, currants and black cherries dipped in chocolate. The wine unfolds with baritone earthy notes emerging to embrace the fruit.
This is one gorgeous, mouth-filling and surprisingly unctuous Pomerol given the vintage. I would not hesitate to grab more and try them in increments of 20, 25 and 30 years of age. Utterly delicious, I have to go now and have a bit more!
Swim with sharks but drink like a fish. Spring into summer with this beautiful rosé. The 2016 Esprit Gassier from Cote De Provence, France is generously full of flavor. It boasts a very clear rose color with touches of peach. A white and yellow fruit (dried apricot, elberta peach, green pear) on the 👃sniffy sniff and some floral. The flavors on the 👅👄 are delicate white peach, Mandarin, and some grapefruit nuances. -
Medium-full bodied Rosé with a soft refreshing finish. Enjoy with smoked gouda shrimp quesadillas and grilled asparagus wrapped with Parma Prosciutto. We give this rose 🐠🐠🐠 1/2🐠 out of 5🐠. 92 Points from International Wine Report

While some people obsess over various shades of gray (ahem)...we're a lot more interested in those shades of red...red wine, that is!
Every shade of color hints at a particular feature of a wine: origin, climate, grape, tanning levels and age, to name a few. But what's the right way of classifying all those shades? Here's a quick guide to visualize the major color families:
Purple - very young wines
Ruby - young wines
Garnet - old wines
Tawny - very old wines
Extra Tip: a wine's color is best seen against a white background, with the wine glass tilted forward 45 degrees, towards the edge of the glass. Go ahead, have some fun - explore all shades of red!
