Professional wine monkey. Goofball.
Rounded plum and hints of blackberry on the nose leads to an evolving-by-the-moment palate that softens and deepens with every sip. It grows on you like a newly-favorite song, revealing better thing by the moment. CANNOT recommend this enough.

This wine is actually produced with fruit that is sourced JUST outside of Chablis. I’ve always been a fan of the producer- and this one caught me off guard because of the traces of oak that line the canvas of a beautiful wine. Particularly for its price.

Been saving this one & it is in the sweet-spot of its prime. Never forget the first time I had it at the Wine Spectator, Grand Event “Tasting of the Ages” Thing at the Marriot Marquis back in 2014. In the highest of company it beautifully defined itself as more than just a “competitor” with some the most sought-after Cabs in the world- it was in a Leauge of its own. Good chance it’s my favorite Cab of all time.

This is a delight. A light strawberry hue leads to a nose of robust red fruits. As it warms of course it comes to life and expresses deeper flavors of cherries and even a bit, I THINK, of some lightly fleshy tobiko. Think that’s how you spell it. It’s opening beautifully, evolving into a richer/smoother, more lush display across the palate. Pick it up and try it if you can find it- in more ways than one, it’s in its own league. — 2 months ago
