VGW Chardonnay 2017

Read @Aravind A review from 2/25/21 below. If blinded on this wine I would have said PM at 1er level or above from a notable producer. I’ve not had a better Chardonnay from OR. — 8 days ago

Force de Fleurs White Rhone Blend 2021

Ming L
8.9

The best bottling of this white Rhone blend I’ve tasted yet, the 21’ gets the Templeton Gap designation and no longer has Picpoul Blanc which was blended in the previous 2 vintages.
Aromatic floral nose. Palate remains textured like previous vintages but with much crisper acidity.

Cannonball Red Blend 2021

2021. From the D&G website “The base is Testa Carignane (62%) and Rava Grüner Veltliner (21%) and the spice is a mix of Fenaughty Grenache Blanc (6%) & Vermentino (6%) and Cloud Chardonnay (5%).”
Their tasting notes are spot on, especially the fruit rollup 😄
“Delightful tart notes of Bing cherry, cranberry and red raspberry spill forward on the palette along with the zing of chewy fruit-rollups. Deeper in, a flinty, volcanic minerality balances and grounds this high-energy wine, while a creamy mouthfeel completes the enchantment.”

Il Conte Villa Prandone

Rosso Piceno Uvaggio Montepulciano Sangiovese 2017

Excellent. Medium-plus in body and nicely structured, this wine was saturated with flavors of boysenberry, pomegranate, and black licorice. Nice finish, too! 70% Montepulciano, 30% Sangiovese. 5/21/22. — 2 months ago

Sous Le Chateau Saint-Romain Chardonnay 2014

2022/5/20-21, alongside the 2014 Perrieres VV. Compared to the Perrieres, this has a thicker honeyed character, with a bit of tropical fruit (though not excessive). There’s more sweet fruit vs. acid, though again, overall it’s still very well balanced. — 7 days ago

Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten Kabinett Riesling 2001

21 year old Kabinett. Some might say that this is past it’s peak, but I love Kabinetts with age on them. Beautiful amber color. Peach or apricot ok the nose. On the palate vibrant acidity. This doesn’t have a lot of life left but still so good right now. — 23 days ago

Ulysses Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Third bottle, last one was in August 21. Blue and black fruit forward. Floral in the nose. Thick mouthfeel. Still requires a decant. Tannins well integrated. Nice finish. Great wine that can go many more years. Too bad this was my last bottle. — 19 days ago

Saint-Romain La Perriere Les Vieilles Vignes 2014

2022/5/20-21. We had this alongside the Sous le Château from the same vintage. Rich yellow. This is the leaner, stonier of the two, with a nice sour-sweet citrus profile. There’s a subtle honied creaminess hiding in the background - less prominent than with the Château, but clearly there, suggesting this is in its prime drinking window. — 7 days ago
