Wine of the Day: Jean Leon 3055 Merlot

Let us share with you the story behind this legend Jean Leon. Jean Leon, a young idealist who broke new ground in difficult times and saw his dreams come true from creating the most prestigious restaurant in Hollywood, La Scala to the famous Jean Leon 3055. Today, the memory of that great man and his singular adventure comes to mind every time we uncork the wine that bears his name: Jean Leon. Wonder what 3055 stand for?

Is this spam or is the poster paying for this ad?

No, this is not a spam. Do you have to pay in order to post pictures of products?

Wine of the Day: The Other
« Reply #7 on: January 30, 2014, 10:09:10 AM »
The Other is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Syrah.  The Peirano vineyard had a unique way to make wines. They make sure their vines struggle a little bit, through techniques like deficit irrigation, to help concentrate the fruit flavors. Tasting notes, vibrant color and aromas of blackberry and plums are complimented by spice, toasty oak and cedar notes. A wave of black cherries and a hint of smoky dark oak lead to a long seductive finish.

Wine of the Day: Fattoria Victiccio Toscana Bere 2011.
Bere is from Tuscany, Italy. Is a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet, and 25% Merlot, making this wine a “Super Tuscan”. The term “Super Tuscan” describes any Tuscan red wine that does not adhere to traditional blending laws for the region. Super Tuscans often use other grapes, especially Cabernet, making them ineligible for DOC(G) classification.This wine has a beautiful nose of ripe red fruit – cherry and strawberry. The full palate has loads of lush fruit – black raspberry and cherry. The tannins are mild and well integrated. This wine makes a lovely match with pan-roasted filet mignon with mushroom and red wine sauce.

Every Wine has a story, but many are forgotten fast or shall never be mentioned. This one stuck with me. We in general are intrinsically curious. We alwyays ask why? We are driven to the point that we seek to explain the unexplainable, going as far as placing huge mirrors in the universe to look even deeper into the dark. One of these mirrors is called the Hubble telescope, and is best accessed from an observatory on top of the Andes Cordilleras named Tololo.Famous for its uniquely crisp and clear, unpolluted night skies, here at the grand junction between man, curiosity and the surrounding universe, here at the Earth’s opposite side of Lhasa, the Himalaya’s spiritual center, where tales of indigenous people report of similar powers, no grapes are grown, here is where ideas are.  And as every wine is not only the result of nature’s own doing but also an expression of man’s confrontation with nature, Tololo stands for exactly this: Curiosity.
The label on the bottle is a simple representation of the above idea, he who is curious is looking up into the night sky: the observatory (open dot) connects the Hubble (blue star) with the Sun (golden sun), Moon and stars (red point), and we watch from below.
Tasting notes: Pretty mixture of boysenberry, blackberry and cherry fruit notes, mid palate of noble tannins leading into a slightly peppered finish.
