9.5

Wow!! Insane nose. Big and I mean massive caramel and intermingled with dead leaves. Gorgeous spice. Wowza spice. Man this is an aroma to be reckoned with. So deep and so expansive and explosive. Apricot. Fresh yet deep and big time hedonistic. Wow, what viscosity. OMG this is so rich and yet so fresh. This has Bergman “scenes from a marriage” tension! Wow. This is tense! So long, exotic and opulent. What a finish. This is a joy to drink. Stunning. Crazy. Just crazy. — 7 hours ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Ridge California Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

From a mini vertical of Monte Bello at a friend’s house. This 08 is easily the most concentrated of the 06, 07, 08. A bit of lemony oak is still yet to integrate on the nose, but all the components are there. Best concentration of the bunch. The fruit is rich and pure and the tannins and acids are really in nice balance. Give this 5 more years. — 9 days ago

Special Club Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2008

Pop and pour. It was a rough day, so perhaps take this note with a grain of salt, but...my wife says this is the best champagne we've had in recent memory, and I would describe this as Chevalier Montrachet with bubbles. On the nose: rich creamy vanilla lemon chiffon, soft honey, hazelnut, perfectly balanced richness and fruit. On the palate: soft mousse, fantastic acidity and richness, lemon, grilled nuts, fantastic density, and a soft, dark, finish. Wow, absolutely spectacular. — 3 days ago

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

For me it feels like it is closed. At least it is withholding a lot what was there a few years ago. I will keep other bottles. — 11 days ago

Turley

Hayne Vineyard Petite Syrah 2008

At PnP, the wine as a deep dark garnet. Tasted of dark cherries and plum, a touch cocoa or dark chocolate then white pepper and some tannins. After 2 hrs open, the very front had a touch of drag blueberry and the pepper had become more spicy like a black pepper. The oak notes emerged snd the tannic structure was revealed to be long & dense, which I have found to be delicious. A real great wine which I’m glad to have held onto. — a day ago

@Severn Goodwin Absolutely. Figured I’d crack this one out to enjoy on Father’s Day with my wife. I definitely need more Turley in my life!

For sure, we're holding this bottle '05-07, no '08 in the cellar, but was a great CA vintage 👍

A big boned, dark and serious traditional Barolo. May turn out to be immortal. No better way to celebrate Stuart Lane’s incredible Piedmont cuisine at Spinasse. 5* — 4 days ago
