Noces D'Or Grande Champagne Cognac

Highly complex. The nose is rich and fruity with notes of toffee, plum, prune, raisin, and cigar box. On the palette, gingerbread, plum, raisin, violet, and cigar box. — 9 days ago

Clos du Val

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Opaque dark violet with clear meniscus.. couldn’t have told this is 12 yrs old looking at the wine in the glass. Medium viscosity. oak-spiced, red and blue fruit, chocolate, tobacco and floral pastille aromas.  Mocha and vanilla flourish. Plush, velvety and broad mouthfeel, it offers sweet cassis and blackberry flavors with a long spice and oak finish. Rich and energetic in style, medium acidity, resolved medium minus tannins and medium alcohol. Delicious expression of a high quality CA cab. I like this much better than bold and high ABV CA cabs. This was 14% ABV. — 9 days ago

Clos du Val

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Imo this has a way to go - it came across as tart and quite young, a bit surprising to me but I’ve not had a lot of clos du Val.

Villa Petrolo

Bòggina A Val d'Arno di Sopra Sangiovese 2016

Not your typical sangiovese. Instead of the herbs flavor it is replaced by a mineral driven flavor but the cherries are all here. Not sure how it will age kept 2 to see long term...not a sangio for a crowd used to italian wine very particular style — 3 days ago

La Pousse d'Or

"Clos Tavannes" Santenay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1999

Incredible color. Soaring nose. Fabulous sweetness after an hour or so (initially less extravagant than nose but far from mute)— blue fruit profile and pretty epic finish. Far prettier than what I usually want in Santenay— but more please.. — 2 days ago

Clos du Val

Carneros Chardonnay 2016

With grapes from Carneros, pale lemon with aromas of stone, citrus fruits and spice. The palate had flavors of apple, pear, peach, lemon zest and melon, complex, mineral tones with soft creamy oak and sweet spice. The wine was fresh, a bit creamy, with vibrant crisp acidity, well balanced on a long finish. Nice Chard with some mid-term aging potential. Outstanding! — 20 days ago
