Four Vines Anarchy ZSM 2007, Red wine Wine

Four Vines Anarchy ZSM 2007, Red wine Wine

Origin: USA California
Characteristics: 31% Syrah, 31% Zinfandel, 38% Mourvedre. 15% alc. A west coast take on the classic GSM Rhone blend, this wine might be as well be called a ZSM for the California substitute of Zinfandel. If you did not think the Rhone wines could get any bigger, allow me to introduce you to a 600 pound gorilla that got loose in an orchard at harvest and has had his way with the ripest fruit. Aromas of brown sugar, rendered plums and heady vanilla lead you quickly to a smooth palate with a mild acidity, polished tannins and rich, ripe fruit that linger and last. This is not about nuance or patience. This is animal, shocking and satisfying. Living proof that wine should not always be about subtleties, Anarchy presents a dose of welcomed chaos. Next time you look for that winter warmer for the fireside or a bear hug in a bottle, look no further. Tasting review by Nicholas Livingston, October 2, 2009

2007 "Anarchy", Paso Robles, Unconventional Rhone (Syrah, Mourvedre, Zinfandel)
"I give you ANARCHY... I wanted to think outside the box and create an unconventional Rhone Blend. The blend is based on Syrah for that velvet mouthfeel and rich fruit, Old Vine Zin for spice and that brambly backbone, and Mourvedre provides some anise and makes the whole blend resonate. If you like the Rhone this wine will blow you away!"

Aia Vecchia Lagone IGT 2010 
Characteristics: On the same hill as Sassicaia just below, this red is a stunning value –STUNNING! Spicy and woodsy brambly fruit tug on the palate in a nervy tension of juicy acids and fine knit tannins. Big without over extraction, expansive without any doughnut holes, this is a complete Super Tuscan for a song considering its premier quality.

Aldo Conterno Barolo Romirasco 2004 
Characteristics: SPECIES OF VINE: Nebbiolo, Michet and Lampia varieties.
VINEYARD: “Romirasco” vineyard, in Bussia (Monforte d'Alba)
HARVEST: manual, with grapes selection in the vineyard.
TIME OF HARVEST: mid-October.
VINIFICATION: red, with skin soaking inside stainless steel vats.
VINIFICATION TIME: the must stays on contact with the skins for 15 days: during this time the alcoholic VINIFICATION usually gets fully complete, and the wine is then drawn off.
VINIFICATION TEMPERATURES: changeable, with highest peaks of 32 degrees centigrades.
CELLAR REFINING: the new wine remains inside stainless steel vats for 3 to 5 months, and it is periodically transferred before being put into big Slavonian oak barrels, where it is left ageing for 28 to 30 months; then, it will be bottled.
NOTES: the vineyard “Romirasco” is about 50-55 years old and its vines are replanted from time to time. The main variety of Nebbiolo is Lampia and its rootstock is Rupestris du Lot.

Angel's Secret Petite Sirah 2010 
Characteristics: This wine shows all the characteristics of great Petite Sirah. Lush dark berries, balanced fruit and complex yet mild tannins. The addition of merlot adds a soft component to the wine and lends to a smooth supple finish.
