Sherlock’s Wine Merchant Buckhead

 
 2006 Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino
Tuscany – Italy

Wine Advocate 96 Points The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a striking wine blessed with gorgeous clarity and precision in an effortless, weightless style. Dark cherries, tobacco, incense, dried flowers and minerals come together beautifully in the glass in this sensual, understated wine. Tobacco, licorice, menthol and an assortment of other balsamic aromas and flavors add complexity and character to the vivid, textured finish. This is a fabulous effort from proprietor Andrea Cortonesi. 

I would be hard-pressed to name another grower who has made such huge strides in recent years as has Andrea Cortonesi. The artisan tradition of Montalcino is alive and well in this small, no-frills winery, while the wines have never been better bottling.     

 
2009 Twomey Pinot Noir
Anderson Valley – California
   

Winery Notes Our 2009 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir has a bright ruby-red color and a complex, evolving nose of wild strawberries, black plums, fresh rose petals and wild mushrooms with hints of cinnamon and spearmint. On the palate, the wine begins with a fruit-sweet attack quickly followed by notes of baking spices, blood orange and berries and finishes with notes of bittersweet chocolate and black cherry framed by fine-grained tannins. This wine has perfect acid balance and the notions of forest fruit linger for minutes on the palate.  From the family of Silver Oak Cellars.  

   

 
2010 Man O’War Sauvignon Blanc
Waiheke Island – New Zealand

Winery Notes With exotic tropical fruit, fresh herbs and citrus notes this vintage of Sauvignon Blanc displays characters found right across the ripening spectrum for Sauvignon and is balanced by fresh vibrant acidity and wonderful concentration.  This Sauvignon made exclusively from our Waiheke vineyards displays both classic notes with the excitement of showcasing regional diversity in New Zealand’s best known grape variety.
