Schramsberg Vineyards

J. Schram Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2000

Vibrant acidity, still crazy after all these years. Apricots and peanut butter notes all day. Sickness. — 2 months ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

This is based on day 3. Fair amount of fruit and easy tannins. I can see this aging easily another 10+yrs. — 5 months ago

Ridge Vineyards

Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend 2016

Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs 2016: Full-bodied. Great balance. Medium acidity & soft tannins. Dark fruits. Plum. Leather. Oak. Spice. Long finish. Consisting of 69% Zinfandel, 23% Petite Sirah, 6% Carignane & 2% Mataro (Mourvèdre), this red blend has always been a long-standing favorite of mine: Smooth & complex, rich & juicy. Always delivers time & time again. Whenever I see it on a menu, the decision is made easy. All in all, a more than impressive Zinfandel blend; a fantastic wine selection. Great day to all! Cheers🍷 — 8 months ago

Silver Oak

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This wine is drinking great. Silver Oak can be pretty tannic, especially the Alexander Valley. 10 years in, that has mellowed and you’re getting some nice fruit and secondary flavors. Chloe V-Day gift. — 3 days ago

The SO Alexanders all need a mandatory, 10 year cooling-off period. After a decade, the ridiculous oak has faded and you're left with an integrated Cabernet that I'd blind taste against anything...ANYTHING from California or Bordeaux. Might not come in first but it will be accounted for. Before that mandatory 10-spot, it's coming in last every single time. Just sayin.'

Marchesi Antinori

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2000

Popped and poured; consumed over three days. The first half of the bottle was enjoyed on Day 1 and the second half was enjoyed on Day 3. Best on day three when it freshened up and had time to stretch its legs. The 2000 Tignanello pours a deep garnet color with a slight orange-ish rim; slightly turbid with an opaque core. Medium+ viscosity with moderate staining of the tears. On the nose, deep ripe, black cherry fruit with leather, pipe tobacco, teriyaki, espresso, and earth. On the palate the fruit and non-fruit characteristics are confirmed. The wine is dry with medium+ tannin (which has all but integrated) and medium acid. Finish is medium+. A lovely 23 year old Tig that, remarkably, benefits from a good breather to get its best. Drink now with an extended decant but will continue to hold for at least another 5-10 years given good cellar conditions. — 3 months ago

Dom Pérignon

Brut Champagne Blend 2002

Extremely fine mousse, possibly the finest I’ve ever seen. Aromas of lemon, lime and honey. Amazingly fresh and vibrant for a 21 year old wine. On the palate medium plus intensity. Notes of over ripe mouldy apple. Jancis gave this 20/20 which is Off the Charts for her. She said that they started to measure glycerol levels from 2001, and 2002 has been the highest glycerol Dom P ‘by a mile’. An interesting comment. Were they only comparing to 2001? The following day the Lime and Honey dominated still. It would be interesting to taste this next to the 2002 P2. The latter probably fresher still and more mineral. — 2 months ago

I remember frenzy when this 2002 was released, people would buy the more they could.
I recall a small producer wondering how DP could make a million or more bottles of such extraordinary Champagne.

Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 1996

One of the best bottles of champagne I’ve ever had. Annual one for Valentine’s Day - 2 left from a case we bought years ago. Getting better each year. Has a bit of a caramel apple mixed with lemon curd thing developing now. Very fine bubbles. Just fantastic. — 4 months ago

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1966

Tasted blind. Dark tawny color, totally opaque. Odd nose that has everyone shrugging what this could be. Notes of black fruit, spice, roses, some tar. I'm in Italy and drag a few others into similar guesses as my 89 Giacosa Falleto Riserva. Lot's of "wows" when it's revealed this is old Pauliac. This performed well through the day, it's in solid shape. The Bordeaux descriptors are easier to figure out once the label was revealed. — 7 months ago
