2010 Molino de Grace IGT Tuscanny (75% Sangiovese and 25% MERLOT.
This was a very funky, earthy, delicious plummy and did I say funky Italian blend from a historic property in the Chianti Classico. Delicious and cheap ($16)
2010 Fields Family Oak Knoll (Napa) Merlot.
Wow. A winner from Lodi's Fields Family. Deep plum fruit with nice acidity and fantastic earthy notes. Very polished and delicious.
