@Paul T- Huntington Beach Great bottle of wine. Didn’t show as well as it did a few months back. Thinking it starting to slowly decline.

@Mike R I’ve got some other vintages. Will have to open one.

Clos Santa Ana

Sirios Valle de Colchagua Red Blend 2016

A fascinating new project in Chile that has been years in the making. This blend of young Carmenérè, Cabernet Franc and some Malbec comes mostly from a 1.3ha vineyard that is as wild as the day is long. In fact, the estate is known for its rescue animals which freely roam about the land. Some of the fruit is still purchased until the vineyard fully matured. The wines are spontaneously fermented and aged for 18mos in a combination of old Chilean oak foudre and amphora. The wine has no SO2 added and is bottles unfiltered. It presents a brilliant garnet color that’s slightly hazy. The nose is remarkably fresh flowers, tobacco leaf, fresh herbs, and dark berries. Some VA for sure...but that relaxes after an hour of air. On the palate, it’s bright, crunchy dark fruits with a bit of earth and finishes long with smacking acid. The wine is rustic for sure but also remarkably fresh. Definitely own for the natural wine crowd and eschews the typical New World approach towards more international styled wines. This is definitely a project to follow. — 2 months ago

Chateau Lichten Cornalin Blend 2018

This is not a straight Cornalin, it is an assemblage. « Assemblage de cépages nobles, Elevé en foudre de chêne suisse» and in Swiss oak rather than French. The Cornalin and Humane Rouge blend well with the Syrah. There is a spicyness that leads to a soft but medium long finish. — 2 months ago

Cuvée Classique Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2015

Quel beau vin! Réussi la difficile tâche d'allier richesse et fraîcheur. Absolument aucune lourdeur. La structure est là, mais se boit facilement sans nourriture malgré sa relative jeunesse. Et quelle classe! Coup de coeur pour cette bouteille. — 2 months ago

16.5/20 (90/100) Спелый яблоки и груша, слива, сдоба. Заметная сладость, высокая кислотность. Фруктовое во вкусе. Приятное во всех отношениях шампанское. — 16 days ago

One Sixteen Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2017

Tried this twice. Pale golden color, complex aging, 34% new French oak-15 months, 30% stainless-4 months; 18% in Foudre for 9 months; rest concrete egg for 14 months. Aromas of stone fruits, oak, nuts, floral and spice. On the palate flavors of peach and pear with honeysuckle, integrated toasty oak and nice citrus tang. Long finish, ending with a wet stone mineral character. Outstanding! Will age well! — 8 hours ago

Medium bodied but full of dark flavors. Anise, almost barnyard. Impressive. — 2 months ago

Mont de Milieu Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Wow...a coup de coeur. For a 1er cru it has the stuffing of a grand cru. Very long aftertaste with all the power upfront. — 2 months ago
