Dried persimmon, dark rolls, browned butter, pepitas, white pepper, dried pineapple, tangerine, dried lemon peel aromas waft pungent from the antique golden nectar. Tangerine and itspith, Meyer lemon peel, baked apple, pineapple in lemon oil, lime zest and a touch of biscuit on a clean, if ridiculously complex finish boasting oceanic notes of brine and shell. #Champagne #bubbles #champagneandcaviar #champagnedreams #nationalcaviarday #moutard #6cepages #luxury #champagnetoujours — 6 days ago
Gorgeous garnet exhibiting classic orange notes and the tiniest tinges of age, but the aromas of cut cherry and citrus jump from the glass! Blood orange thyme and watermelon on a grill with red currant and just a touch of cranberry and holly to keep it festive. The tar is a hovering ethereal addition that would be a side note, but it hovers like a smoky cloud that adds a dark spirit to the whole, though it feels bright and fresh. A dichotomy, but one that seems an integral part of the whole. Every sip sends your tastebuds racing in a wash of intense red raspberry, plum, violet, thyme, racy citrus and grainy cedar, silky tannin, an unobtrusive touch of vanilla and sweet tobacco! Finesse and sophistication from entry to satisfying finish. An amazing wine with endless subtleties, physically pulling you in with its seductive structure. #cascinachicco #singlevineyard #barolo #ginestra #ethereal #nebbiololife #nebbiololover #nebbioli #nebbiyolo #piedmont #piedmontwines #piemonte — 14 days ago
Tar, blackberry, gum Arabic, dark rye loaf with caraway, cedar wrapped tobaccos, baked artichoke, baked black currant, mussel shells in beef broth, broken pencils and rosemary sprig. Really a steak bouquet beckoning. Chocolate-y palate with graphite on aged parchment, seared thyme, baked cassis, warm black and blue berries, burnt black currant and black poppyseed. I like this. I knew going in it was going to be round and full, but it contained just enough herbaceous character to keep my brain in the glass. #napacab #mtveeder #cab #cawine #mountainwine #mountveederwinery — 6 days ago
Oceanic agar suspends a muted, pickled peach and matches with fruit bat guano, pine chips, coffee, cardamom and white pepper aromas. Underripe bing cherries, toasty apricot, clove, scorched lemon, blood orange, underripe tangerine, grapefruit and kumquat: a particularly sour, yellow one. Decidedly different than the one I had last year; better perhaps! #boulevardbrewing #sourale #sourbeer #sourbeers #lovechild #numberfive #dankbeer — 17 days ago
Warm baguette with whipped butter and lemon. Artichoke, green tomato, grilled pineapple, smoky hog jowl on greens, pretzel dough, basil and capers are bursting from the glass in gaseous form. Medium mouthfeel, buttery and olive-briny, white mushroom, flat-citric lemon oil bordering on curd, and yellow wax beans with water chestnuts and almonds. Nice acidity keeps tho one from becoming sluggish. A full, round mouthful, with plenty to contemplate. Persistent and palate-coating. #CDP #chateauneufdupapeblanc #blanc #frenchwine #popewine #domainedessénéchaux #rhonewine — 12 days ago
Liquid obsidian. Fine pepper and sparkler smoke encircle dense raspberry and sloe reductions with dried, black plum skins, a solid, semi-sweet bakers chocolate cake, madura cigar, flint and smoldering willow plaited sinewously! Medium heavy mouthfeel, green-pointed and obstructively tannic til open, but emerged rippling and pleasant with graphite, vine charcoal, powdered cadmium, raisined red currant and cassis. Rustic Power!! #tenutacavalierpepe #taurasi #Aglianico #Luogosano #SantAngeloallEsca #italianwines #docg — 14 days ago
