Wine biz in NYC in 80s. Sucked at sales. Since 1990, a lawyer. Pretty good at that, thankfully. Since 2000, sick of wines 15% and higher.
Still young and needs lots of air. But then displays classic scents of yellow orchard fruit, waxy notes, and liquid minerals. Very minerally in the mouth. Nice persistence and the texture is a bit fat, as Roussanne can be, but not too much, and there’s also pretty decent acidity. A little bitterish note emerges in the long finish — 2 days ago
This Nebbiolo emphasizes terroir rather than fruit. The nose is showing secondary notes that lead with intense crushed-rock laden gravel and old mahogany furniture scents, with only a wee bit of cherry fruit peeking through. Intense and very minerally in the mouth, this still has some tannin to burn. The finish is remarkably long and a tad bitter. Quite unique and atypical but still very good. Needs rich, rustic food. — 7 days ago
I love this wine. So fragrant, with crushed minerally gravel and ripe but tart cherry, and resiny spice. A bit broader and more savory in the mouth than the nose would suggest, but still in total equilibrium. Full, but with enough acidity to enliven it. Perfect accompaniment to Peposo (look it up). — 9 days ago
Very elegant and complex. So fragrant with warm gravel, cigar box, macerated ripe cherry, and sweet spice. Beautifully balanced in the mouth with medium-full body, ripe fruit, and loads of savory minerality. A little less acidity than traditional, but still so great with my red sauce with meatballs. , — 10 days ago
