Value Bordeaux is surely all about vintage. The 2016s, even at this low a price range, are ripe, concentrated and characteristic wines that hit the spot for the money. It’s been a while since I had BDX of any sort, and for a quick roast dinner tonight this really scratched that itch.
The nose opens with blackberry, cranberry, dried cherry and cedar all in quite pleasing balance - even a hint of menthol. The palate is less concentrated and more supple in feel, with gentle tannins, good acidity and great ripeness to the fruit, and the finish very satisfying. All in all a terrific value Bordeaux from this bountiful year. — a month ago

2016 Sparkling Pinot Gris orange wine.
Ryan, yes, more please and thank you!
A fan of the orange Pinot Gris, geeked to of received an email regarding the release of a personal winemaker stash of sparkling orange Pinot Gris.
“To quickly explain, an “orange wine” is made from white grapes, but instead of pressing the white grapes and discarding the skins like normal white wine production, they are kept in contact (just like red wine production) with the juice for 21 days extracting the orange of color. For fun, I produced a small personal batch that was made like a traditional method champagne. Perhaps the only one of its kind.
I hope you enjoy!
Perfect amount of bubbles, lightly carbonated, any more and it would of been a bit rough.
