There's nothing like a good bottle of wine, in a good place, with good company. TWP - Wine Manager - Total Wine & More Preston Village, Plano, TX.
I thoroughly enjoy this. It's simple, with a three dimensional feel - pink Himalayan sea salt, red apple skin, under ripe strawberry, dried herb, and tangelo peel. Juicy acidity, pretty orange salmon color, and a very aromatic bouquet. This has to be one of my favorite rosé wines in a long time. This one also happens to be a pretty good worthy rosé, due to its acidity. 60% Niellucciu (Sangiovese) and 40% Sciaccarellu from Corsica - absolutely delicious. — a day ago
Yes, I have Hirsch San Andreas Fault Pinot in the glass, which was part of a 3 year blind tasting event for Coravin. The objective was to see if you could actually guess how many of the 4 samples were Coravin accessed 3 years ago, and how many were freshly poured that evening. Could not tell what do ever. Gotta love Coravin - owner Greg Lambrecht in the photo - the guy is awesome, and insanely knowledgeable about wine.
About Hirsch - absolutely gorgeous, dried herbs, anise, cranberry, raspberry, allspice, and balanced acidity. 2010 had so much youth in it that it still needs several more years in my opinion. Not classic to the full level of fruit forward Cali can deliver - even a little tightly wound. What a treat! — 5 days ago
