Hong Kong wine enthusiast by route of New York City and SF Bay area. Big fan Russian River Valley Pinot and German Riesling.
Wait for it... the second day this showed well, and finally started to open with some forest and Burgundian notes. The first day was tight and sharp. ... I don’t agree with some of the sky high magazine reviews, perhaps projecting potential like an over valued dot com. — 2 months ago
Classic Napa comfort food. After hours of heavy traffic driving into the western sun and over the bay bridge... I picked up this old friend at Safeway with dinner. A bit of vanilla, oak, cocoa powder, dark cherry, smooth tannins... and I am recovered! (Substitute Rutherford dust for the cocoa). — a month ago
Graillot is one of my all time favorites. I bought one ‘17 to test and see how much more of the ‘17 I want to buy. And not much. It’s delicious... but the last few years seem to be evolving away from the unique Alain Graillot style I remember from years past. Still can’t get the ‘95 out of my head... it ruined me. — 2 months ago
