Hong Kong wine enthusiast by route of New York City and SF Bay area. Big fan Russian River Valley Pinot and German Riesling.
Starts out with zingy sunshine over flower bed earth. After a few hours this comes together beautifully. Lavender, hazelnuts, potting soil, smell of a spring garden... and all sorts of other good stuff you would expect if Provence were jammed in a bottle! — 5 days ago
Ravenswood single vineyard efforts always deliver beyond expectations. and it’s a great value drinking at half the price of something comparable. I think the Ravenswood mass produced stuff subsidizes their good stuff. $19 at K&L SF on their old and interesting wall to the far left when you go in. — 19 days ago
After leaving it about 4 hours open... This wine gave me a flashback. Way back in school while backpacking Europe, I bee-lined to the hospices de beaune. Armed with the supplied tastevin, I remember having the ‘78 Echezeaux. And being floored. I said to the old guy there... “wow... this is way better than Bordeaux!!!” He laughed something in French which I took as “you betcha”. — a month ago
