Dusty Lane Sonoma Coast Syrah 2013

A Memorial Day BBQ wine, this was fantastic especially considering its youth. White pepper, plum and cassis, decent acidity, great body and length. I love R-C mostly for their Pinot, but they make a couple Syrah cuvées that rock (Cherry Camp is the other). — 3 years ago

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 2006

Old School Spanish Blanco

So spectacular b/c it’s many flavors of fruit, herbs and minerality fade in/out with each sniff/sip. Complex & ephemeral
Not everyone likes the oxidative notes and savory elements

DAY1
Served with Vinloq System and immediate fireworks
👃Honey, wax, and herbs like dill etc
👅Citrus, pear, with nuttiness. Flavors are dynamic and varied

Stored in fridge under Vinloq Preservation
Forgot about it actually…

DAY24
Outstanding again
The leading flavors of lemon, honey with that nice nuttiness are there again. So is the prominent waxiness that shrouds those ghost-like flavors
No signs of deterioration as the fruit and intensity of the flavors are still there in spades
Beautiful 💕

Domaine Jamet

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2019

Fourth MS serving…this is awesome and a revelation bc I haven’t had luck with C-R. Aroma is fascinating, on the palate far more tannic than the Barolo just now - blackberries, pepper, bacon - a great red meat wine. A French napa cab. KLWM — a year ago

Received as a gift from R & C. Excellent taste. Very smooth. — 3 years ago

Maryline et Christophe Billon

Les Elotins Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2015

Have not had a young C/R in a long time. This was like seeing a two year old thoroughbred race horse and thinking sure he’s not going to win the Kentucky Derby but this is a very good horse.
Lots of all the good things; fruit, acid and tannin and most importantly minimal alcohol influence in a warm vintage . Very pure , one can drink now but you will be missing out on even greater enjoyment in the future.
