Shabbat Teperberg lunch: 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, lovely as ever, and 2009 Malbec, simply delicious. I found the malbec more balanced, with notable but restrained fruit, when compared with the 2009 Tishbi. It might be that the Teperberg finished its development and is at the top, whereas the Tishbi still has some develolpment in front of it. I leave it to the experts to weigh in on the matter.

Anyone with "dead" bottles in need of exorcism, can happily ship them to me and I will pay for the shipping!

Falesco, Montiano Lazio IGT 2006: This Merlot knocked me out! Are you kidding me?! HOLLY WOW! It rested for about 4 weeks in my cellar after its short 4hr flight from Geneva to Jerusalem, purchased 3 bottles with the help of some buddy of mine from my friend fellow forumite David O (hasn't posted anything in a while, David! Where are you?!) at the very reasonable cost of $39. Pinchas L this message is for you: If there's not enough acid for your taste in this wine, then you're a lost case my friend! I will for once not use my Rogov-ish style of tasting note and will try to describe this wine in a more 'Gary Vaynerchuck' manner. First of all the color: Deep, almost impenetrable royal purple as some concentrated, freshly-squeezed plum juice. Then the nose: Take a raw cedar wood box with one or two fresh cigars inside, throw it in a wood oven for a few seconds and then take it out half-burnt and smoking, open it and throw in some handful of juicy ripe raspberries and a few pieces of lamb bacon and licorice. Close the wood box, shake it then open it and stick your nose inside: THAT is what this wine smells like... After some time in the glass, the fruit moves a bit more up to the front in an almost jammy way. Now the mouth: Full-bodied with ripe raspberries, layers and layers and layers of crushed red fruit, tobacco, red currants jam, spices, thyme, roasted meat, bracing acid all the way, backer's chocolate and with tannins coating, drying out the mouth on the very long finish that makes you ask for more and more. Powerful, rich and complex, without a doubt the very best Merlot I've had in my entire life. Still young and with all the needed attributes to age gracefully for quite a few more years. BRAVISSIMO! For once, I'll give it a score, à la Pinchas and Elie: A to A+/***
What did you think of the 2009 Petita?
