@delectable this is actually chapitre III Cabernet franc. 2007 has held up beautifully. Turning a bit terschisry but in all the good ways. Still bares some weight and ripe fruit but hints of leather and hoisin emerge. Really nice stuff overall. Way to go Damien Georis of Carmel valley game — 3 years ago
Ah. Domaine St Damien. Can they go wrong. Silky and smoother than their flagship. — 5 years ago

Great nose. Mid red.
Love the fruit confit taste. A bit of pear and apple. — 4 years ago
In his private cellar Damien shared this treasure. Stunning acidity still present. Secondary dried red fruit flavors. Slightly sweet. — 5 years ago

2017 La Staffa Verdicchio with pesto pasta & veggies. Pretty much perfection in dinner right there. This was a little shy on the nose, but is opening up beautifully. This is a nuanced, beautiful wine that I’m fighting a battle not to to drink too quickly as I want to savor & enjoy it. The record finds Damien Jurado delivering some of his finest work. He tells great stories in his songs, but the arrangements are irresistible that accompany his brilliant words. Hope everyone’s Saturday is ending as nicely as ours. — 3 years ago
