Hidden Treasures: Two Wine Titans Create Affordable Tuscan Gem

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate  92 pts

The 2015 Maremma Toscana Le Sughere di Frassinello is a great value blend of 50% Sangioveto, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon (aged in French oak for one year). This wine boasts a proven track record for its consistent value and accessibility and can be counted on for both. It releases a steady flow of dark fruit and spice aromas that build in momentum. The mouthfeel is generous and softly velvety in texture, especially in this warm vintage.

Famille Brunier in the Southern Rhône - A Sendoff Tuesday Night Tasting for Emily Barkelew

If you've been into Murphy's Wine Shop recently, or joined us for one of our Tuesday Night Tastings in the past month or so, then you already know that I, Emily Barkelew, am about to leave and embark on a grand adventure in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and the Southern Rhône with the great Brunier Family, who own Vieux Télégraphe, among others. It's a huge honor to be able to go and work with this family, and I'm so thrilled to be flying out in one week to go work with and learn from them. But before I go, I want to share their wines with you, my Tuesday Night family, to give you a better idea of the wine I'm going to help to make this Fall.
