Many social platforms today use the term "social" (as an adjective) to describe the value they would like their platforms to provide. I feel many fall short. You have loads of friends on the other platforms; yet, they are friends of nobody, really. I consider Delectable to be different. @Bill Bender spoke of this so eloquently a while back. My prose in no way could ever rival a Cambridge Don, but I'd like to tip my hat to the points that he made. First, I have made many close friends here; you know who you are. I can't say that for LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, et al? Wine is sometimes considered an odd, and somewhat obscure passion. But I find clarity amongst this obscurity, because of your posts and scores that you share. But I always find gems, such as this one shared by Paul T. $5 from K&L, its criminal! Most of the peeps I follow share great tips, like this one! So for this reason, I thank Delectable for providing the opportunity to expand my true network of friends, and grow my knowledge of fine wines. Renovation update - second staircase has been removed. Additional framing has been installed to support the sheetrock behind the 2nd staircase. With any luck the second staircase will be installed just before thanksgiving. — 12 days ago
Overall, this presents clean and laser-focused. Minerality such as rocks and stones frame what is a textbook Montrachet clone. Citrus fruits are front and center in this example - a super effort from Cali.
Thanks again to @Paul T- Huntington Beach for a great reco! — 7 days ago
Again, excellent. I detect a hint of greenness in this vintage. Displays the gnarly Paso signature, but with grace and poise. However, the 16 vintage was slightly better.
Day 2 and the greeness has evaporated. This implies that cellaring could be its friend. — 4 days ago
Our first time tasting this. This is a great blend, but Venge Silencieux (for example) represents a much better value. Ontogeny presents layers, depth and texture, But we feel there are many examples of similar quality at half the price on the market. — 4 days ago
Purchased from Wine Library many years ago. At a time when they were at the top of their game - alas, no more.
This is past its prime, but still somewhat enjoyable. Visual bricking with notes of sage and tobacco on the palate. Air is its friend. — 14 days ago
