banfi with christine hodgens/ glazer

San Angelo Pinot Grigio 2013... round smooth and pinot grigio.

PacRim Gruner Veltliner Yakima Valley 2013  a slight sweetness on an othewise dry wine... pleasant acidity... austrian its not but still interesting

PacRim Chenin blanc 2012 Hahn Hills slight banana on the nose, much more rustic in style than I was expecting

Chateau Tanunda Grand Barossa Cabernet 2010 no typicity here. earthy and dry tannins.. slight cassis on the finish but way more old world in style

Banfi Chianti Classico Reserva 2011 this one not typical either.. not the italian stink on it and fresh red berry fruit... not a problem for me  just surprised

Banfi Brunello de Montelcino 2008  dry grippy tannins with the italian aromas.. good fruit structure.. may be aging just a bit

Le Poiane Valpolicella Ripasso 2011  a ripasso is usually a good price alternative to Amarone.. this one is missing the fruit though texture is there but wheres the beef

Sartori Amarone 2010  a more elegant soft style without the overbearing raisony, good depth on the palate.. slight earthiness and saddleleather.
