chris berry palm bay and glazers

Callia Torrontes San Juan Argentina 2009  typical nose of floral pretty but on the palate. missing something. blunt pineapple? tropical fruit that sat out too long?

Planeta LaSegreta Blanc Sicily 2009  greccanico, chard and others.. yellowish lemon.. lush and a nice touch of minerality..good weight to it without being sweet

120 Santa Rita Carmenere Chile 2008  I have to say that the last few Carmenere I have tasted have been surprising me with lushness anda  not a lot of the herbal green that I have had in the past. a little burnt coffee on the finish and relatively light body but for the money a good bottle

Callia Malbec Argentina 2009 tight nose but some body on the palate.. not a lot of flaver.. very subtle and uninteresting for the money

La Segretta Planeta Red Sicily  nero d'avola the predominate grape of Sicily and here 50% dusty and smoky on the nose, dark red fruits.. good food wine.. lots of action on the end of the palate..
