TODAY'S FEATURED WINE
Lewis Perdue's Rating of Inizi Wines: Charbono/Bonarda: Calistoga - Napa Valley - California: : 2012: United States
Call this "the taming of the wild Charbono."
Usually used as a blending wine for its dark color and prominent spicy berry flavor, this 100% edition from Inizi is more restrained and elegant than many but still retains the typical blueberry/pumpkin spice tones.
Inizi is a small Sonoma County winery co-founded by one of the better students in my Wine MBA class, AJ Filipelli (along with his wife Jen and another couple, John and Kirsti Harley).
They made 225 cases of this and sold it all out at $32. I tasted the 2013 which ... which will be equally outstanding given a few more months on the bottle.
Charbono is known as Bonarda in Argentina.
Lew is sick of wasting most of his wine dollars on stuff he pours down the drain.
Will Buy No Wine Before He's Tried 'Em
So, for now on, Lew is not going to buy anything he has not tasted first.
Lew doesn't get many tasting samples, so this new direction means that you will see an increase in the number of different wines he buys from a single winery.

The old review policy still holds -- For winery tasting samples, gifts from friends or family or samplings at a party or event, review it truthfully, but only if I like it. If I have paid my own very-hard-earned money on a bottle, the gloves are off and it gets what it deserves ... whether perfect or puerile.
