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. — 2 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! — 2 months ago

Big call, but here's to Kumeu River Maté's Vineyard being one of the best #chardonnay in the world! What a #wine! Bright, tight & focused at 8 years of age, with apple blossoms & cinnamon stick followed up by flinty, gun smoke, sun drenched slate tiles, & the faintest whisper of lemon curd on the nose, carrying me away to memories of my youth. Once upon the palate, it boogies to an electrophoretic humming of liquid energy, bringing life, happiness & joy with it. Sapid, sexy acids whirl about playfully, skipping to an extended denouement, combining its components into one, luxuriously wondrous whole. Love it so! — 3 months ago
