Detta questa str...ata vediamo Wine Spectator chi piazza la numero 5 della graduatoria.

Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

Inizialmente, dal nome, pensavo fosse un pugliese ed invece è un bel cabernottone della Napa Valley che tanto piace agli Ammericani

A profound effort, offering wonderful purity of flavor, with tiers of anise and black licorice, generous yet structured and elegant. This shows both power and finesse, ending with a wonderful burst of dark berry fruit. Best from 2012 through 2024. 3,000 cases made. –JL

 Al numero 4, e quindi ai piedi del podio, troviamooooooooooo

Rullo di tamburi

Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena 2007


Altro cabernottone made in California

Aromas of roasted herb, red pepper and sage are complex, elegant and spicy, joined by ripe currant, plum and black cherry fruit, but this is at its best on the full-bodied palate, where the texture is supple, graceful and polished. Drink now through 2020. 2,000 cases made. –JL

Sul podio, al numero 3, in quella che sembra ormai una classifica a stelle e strisce troviamo.....
Peter Michael 
Chardonnay Sonoma County Ma Belle-Fille 2008

This is a tremendous Chardonnay, intense, pure, ripe and complex, with concentrated pear, apple, fig and melon flavors that are elegant and refined. Well-defined and long on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 2,100 cases made. –JL

Uno chardonnay tremendo??? Ah ah ah

Al numero 2.................

Two Hands 
Shiraz Barossa Valley Bella’s Garden 2008

Mi mancava l'Australiano!! 

Dark and dense, but emerges with vivid color and bright flavors of raspberry, black cherry and a hint of peach, beautifully tinged with cocoa, licorice and mineral notes as the finish sails on impressively. Drink now through 2018. 2,400 cases made. –HS

E al numero 1, signore e signori, vi presento l'unico, inimitabile, eccezionale, incontrastabile, prezioso...........

James Berry Vineyard Paso Robles 2007

In 1998, when 28-year-old Justin Smith started making wine in Paso Robles, it was a sleepy Central Coast area. Now the wine region is one of California’s fastest-growing. West Paso has a magical combination of rocky limestone soils, rolling hillsides and a not-too-cool climate that gives red Rhône varieties a firm structure to frame their rich, dark berry flavors.
Smith, who owns the 3,000-case Saxum winery with his wife, Heather, creates wines of distinctive character, depth and personality. In 2007, a near-perfect vintage, Saxum’s wines reached new heights. The 2007 James Berry Vineyard Paso Robles is a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah from a vineyard named after Smith’s father. The three varieties are aged 20 months in new and used barriques and large puncheons, to emphasize fruit purity. With its classic quality and reasonable price, this wine is a testament that Paso Robles has earned its place on the world stage.

An amazing wine, dense, rich and layered, offering a mix of power and finesse, with concentrated dark berry fruit, mineral, sage, herb and cedar notes that are pure, intense, focused and persistent. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Drink now through 2018. 950 cases made.

Correte a comprarlo!!!!
