Good drinking vino. Nothing to get gooey about. — 5 days ago
2007 Clos Rougeard "Les Poyeux" & grilled Aussie lamb. A intensely not intense #wine. Sweet bliss of memory evoking scents flow from the glass, spinning my mind into a time slip rush of olfactory teleportation, remembering farm life, tilled soil, horses, real pencils made of cedar & graphite, picking blackberries with my grandmother, & rain on hot asphalt shingles. The flavours are less visceral, but none the less emotively pleasing, with savouriness, zippy acidity & life. — 5 months ago
This 2011 Napa Valley, Carneros #pinotnoir from the Beau Terroir Vineyard expresses its cool vintage & earthly lineage beautifully, with notes of briars, strawberries, & breakfast tea on a nose tethered to a palate that is enticingly textural, endowed with the satiny, sapid acidity of strawberries finishing long, with a fun flourish of dark chocolate, thoroughly complimenting those strawberry characters. Fun vino! — 5 months ago
Slutty, easy "slamable" Bourgogne. Nothing deep yet eminently doable. — 5 months ago
