Hope Family Wines

Treana Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

Tried this with no expectations and it knocked my socks off. Dark fruits on the nose followed by a burst of coffee, chocolate, berries, and spice on the palate. Texture was velvety but not overly tannic or acidic. Definitely a favorite! — 10 days ago

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rosé Blend 2020

A rosé that will rock your socks off from the legendary producer Domaine Tempier,
Brilliant wine from start to finish. Vivid nose with fresh red berries and a zesty, grape-like bitterness, orange blossom and a whole bunch of fresh herbs over a canvas of wet stones.
Fresh and bright palate with a stoney , mineral nerve that cuts through the pronounced fruit concetration and the slight creamy viscosotiy, a layered complexity through a long stimulating finish.
As good as the legend goes, unfortunaltely a challenge to get your hands on.

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Cerasuolo 2010

Alder Yarrow

Undisputedly one of the world’s greatest rosés, this wine has levels of complexity most pink wines can only dream of. And with age? Kill me now. 10 years on this wine smells of potpourri and dirty socks, orange peel and dried herbs. In the mouth, dried exotic citrus flavors and dried strawberries are carried across the palate in a silky mountain stream of minerality as dried flowers and a tiny hint of pink peppercorns linger in the finish. Gorgeous, layered and constantly evolving this is a wine of meditation if there ever was one. — 4 months ago

Azienda Agricola Quazzolo

Cole Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2017

This is the barbaresco cole.

Nose is cherry flower with some spice. Expansive. Beautiful perfume. As it opens the nose gets a bit darker. Deep Lilacs?

Palate has that quazzolo just grab you by your socks better than fruit fruit. Some spice. A hint of cherry licorice. Super fresh. As it opens a bit Plummer but still fresh.

Bought from fass selections

Chemin de Reims Extra Brut Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2013

Wow, this one knocked my socks off. Such an interesting beeswax character, powerful flavor yet elegant. Pricey but worth it, definitely something to seek out. Best champagne I’ve had in a long time and I’m lucky to drink it often! — 3 months ago

Baron Philippe de Rothschild

Château Mouton Rothschild Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Deep, dark reddish tawny center, showing very little age in the rims. Classic, older Bordeaux nose. Notes of cedar, tobacco and cut cigar, red fruits, wet forest floor, old saddle leather, some cassis and some crushed walnuts. Complex and took its time to unwind. Decanted for 8 hours before taking to dinner, and then consumed over 3+ hours. Still present acidity. This comes across as a young Bordeaux, with the quality of the juice very evident. It didn't blow our socks off tonight, but the quality and pedigree of this is easily identifiable. — 5 months ago

Good to know on the 8 hour decant and subsequent performance.
