First Tracks Syrah Blend 2012

2012 Vintage. 42% Syrah, 28% Petit Verdot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Grenache. Sounds like a strange blend, but man was this happening. Opened as our second 2012 for the Zoom tasting. Knocked our socks off! — 8 days ago

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru Chardonnay 1998

Wow! First experience with one of these aged burgundy wines. Still very lively and youthful for 22 yrs old. Subtle citrus and tropical flavors with almond and salinity that leaves a very enjoyable mouth watering finish. — 15 days ago

Blocks 7 & 22 Napa Valley Zinfandel 2014

Sweet strawberry, herbs, tobacco and black pepper on the nose, can smell the high alcohol. Straight black pepper on the tongue, as well as cigar wrapper, almost overpowers the fruit. High quality and fun. If you are looking for a wine that screams Zin, this is it. — 17 days ago

Fracture 22 Months Syrah 2016

Massive is an understatement. Lively red and black fruit, yet a subtle elegance behind the extraction. While still young, drinks quite well. Great Paso juice. Kudos to @bookervineyards — a month ago

Domaine Julien Cruchandeau

Les Valançons Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir 2016

It always surprises me when scents takes me back. This wine took me back to the Pinot Noir that got me obsessed with Pinot Noir: a 1978 Antonin Rodet Santenay, drunk in 1982 when I was 22.

Super sappy, rich, tangy dark cherry essence on the nose. A wee bit of wet earth, limestone, and spice. In the mouth it’s very tangy and minerally, with surprising acidity (which is unlike the Santenay I remembered). Not complex or deep, but, damn, this is a fun wine.

You can say you drank this at 20... Delectable, like Planet Fitness, is judgement free.
