Kungfu Girl Washington State Riesling 2019

This is a nice and easy drinking Riesling from Columbia Valley.

Showing citrus, limes, lemons, spices, light diesel and minerals.

Medium bodied with high acidity. Well balanced, crisp and refreshing.

Dry to off dry on the palate with a tangy finish and better when properly chilled.

Good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with spicy food.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Vin de Savoie Rosé

Perfect rosé! Dry, nice melon and pale raspberry flavors with an acidity that zips it up. Good value!

Les Petites Roches Chinon Cabernet Franc 2015

A little high octane for my liking but perfect structure to soak up some duck fat and plenty of pretty dark fruit — 16 days ago

This is the 2012 Late Disgorged Blanc de Noir.

Having been a long time fan of Michael Cruse and his Ultramarine wines, I was excited to try my first late disgorged offering. Michael recommended at least 6 months post disgorgement before opening…this was disgorged Nov 2020, so I was able to give this 8 months.

Compared to the regular Blanc de noir, I didn’t get that cream soda type note on the nose upon opening, but a lot of this was similar to its regular sibling. Definitely a core of oxidized Apple, with notes of Apple strudel, Bosc pear, and a Carmex note I get with a lot of zero dosage grower champagnes. On the palate it was more full bodied and rich, with a very vinous profile. Closer to high quality white wine than it was sparkler. Bubbles weren’t aggressive. Fruit was mainly Granny Smith Apple with lime stone, and sea salted grilled lemon. Not yeasty. Tasty, as expected!
