Cave du Courset

Le Courset Bex Grand Cru Gamaret 2016

Gamaret, a rare grape from Switzerland🇨🇭 . A descendant of Gamay, it shares a certain lightness with it, and this peppery freshness. Here the color is dark ruby, dense. With a delicious acidity linked to the thermal amplitude, we have here notes of crunchy red / black fruits. Typical aging of Swiss wines: woody but not oak. Cloves, caramel, liquorice, Fruit / tannin balance. Pleasant with salads, vegetarian dishes, cheeses / cold cuts, fish, white meats. The only question remains the price which remains high compared to neighboring countries: Italy, France for this level of quality, (30/40% more expensive at least)

Dotée d’une acidité gourmande lié à l’amplitude thermique, on a ici des notes de fruits rouges/noirs croquants. Élevage typique des vins helvétiques: boisé mais pas Chêne. Girofle, caramel, réglisse, Équilibre fruit/tanins. Agréable sur des salades plats végétariens, fromages/charcuterie, poissons, viandes blanches. La seule question reste toujours le prix qui reste élevé comparé aux pays voisins : Italie, France pour ce niveau de qualité, (30/40% plus cher au moins)

Cave D'Occi

Sangiovese

Comes across as a Sangiovese rose with slight effervescence at the start. A mix of herbaceous, earthy notes along with a bit of light floral sweetness. Still on the dry side on the palate. Fun expression of Sangiovese in Japan. — 12 days ago

Eh. Lacking acidity. Bitter. Alcohol showing a touch high. Not particularly fresh. Decent. — 20 hours ago

Gigondas La Cave

Signature Gigondas Grenache Blend 2016

Deep, rich and balanced effort. Mocha, espresso, plum, dark chocolate, and tobacco. Dark cocoa, spice box, blackberry preserves, and plum carry through on the palate. Persistent, and remarkable length. Limestone, chalky tannins deliver the finish. 15% ABV is held in check. The amount of dark fruit and chocolate character is enjoyable, yet surprising based on the blend: 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre. — 20 days ago

Cave de Genouilly

Bourgogne Aligoté 2017

100% Aligote, pale lemons with aromas of stone and citrus fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of apple and lemon with some soft spice. Medium finish ending with fruit surrounded by gentle spice. Nice value! — 4 days ago

Jarvis Winery

Estate Grown Cave Fermented Lake William Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Celebrating 6 years of wonderful marriage with my beautiful bride, @Krystal Vento

This was my first good bottle of Jarvis and I was very impressed. It took about 1.5-2 hours to finally open up but once it did it was singing. Highly expressive notes of eucalyptus, juniper, sage, plums, blackberries, pipe tobacco, and boysenberries.

Try the Chardonnay’s from them. Especially if you enjoy an occasional new world chard.

One of my favorite producers, and a total must visit when in the valley. I agree with @David L about their Chardonnay (the unfiltered finch hollow is magical, but expensive). Their merlot may be my favorite in all of Napa.
