Skylark Red Belly 2015
WHOA! Porch-pounder alert of the highest level! Sommelier-made, 90-POINT red blend goodness in a rich Rhone style, priced to crush all competitors, of course. But what a complete joy to bang out a few of these on a Saturday afternoon in the rocking chair after a game of cornhole or mowing the lawn, or really….ANYTHING!! $15! Incredible!
Skylark is a project of two well-known sommeliers in San Francisco from the famed Boulevard restaurant. This hails from some of California’s finest North Coast vineyards and these two guys really nailed it on the winemaking side. The fact that we snagged some is kind of amazing considering how little there was to go around!!
Anyway, can you say deep, rich, black cherry and red currant basket? That’s what’s happening here, with very cool spicy secondary notes of pepper and cigar box, clove and earth...very complex for a wine priced like we have it and a JOY, pure, unfiltered JOY to drink! Utterly perfect right now, tonight, immediately, and so soft and supple-y drinkable as to put a bit of fear into you. In the BEST way!! So good --- the only bummer is, as you might imagine, these guys didn’t make a lot! Will go fast…
