Pali Wine Co.

Charm Acres Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2018

Dang good Chard, not super complex but very drinkable. Been open sitting in my fridge for 3 weeks or more. Must’ve sprayed it. Every time I think I’m over Pali drinkers they pull me back in. — 5 months ago

Vigneti Massa

Derthona Colli Tortonesi Timorasso 2021

I remember falling in love with Timorasso the first time I tried it a few years ago, and the story behind it. How the producer had grubbed out some acres of Cortese which makes the ubiquitous Gavi to produce the luscious, delicious, complex Timorasso. Pear being the overriding descriptor. Good value as well, when bought in Italy. — 3 months ago

Mount Pleasant Wines

Eight Acres Sémillon 2014

Lanolin, citrus and citric acid. Only 11.5% ABV. From the excellent 2014 vintage in the Hunter Valley. A good Hunter Semillon without the intensity of their premium Semillon Cuvée, Lovedale. Very clean and fresh. I think its best days are in front of it when it should develop more complexity - toast and honey. Many recommended drinking windows are too short now that I’ve tasted it. — 3 months ago
