Anthill Farms

Campbell Ranch Vineyard Syrah 2018

More of a tannic backbone than the Peter’s Vineyard from this same vintage. Red fruited with a touch of graphite. To me, it definitely has new world fruit, but it’s not overdone by any means. — 15 days ago

Earthy, subtle tart cherry. Good backbone. — 10 days ago

Château des Laurets

Puisseguin St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Juicy, ripe fruit from the merlot works well with the herbal dark backbone of Can Franc. Layered, well built wine. — 2 days ago

Domaine Robert Groffier

Les Hauts-Doix Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Smooth and delicious with dark cherry and tabun on the finish. A great and sophisticated wine with a strong backbone. — 7 days ago

Domaine Bernard Moreau & Fils

Les Chenevottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

This was a stunner but I was the least impressed. Fleshy and forward with a bunch of oak but some great mineral structure that gave it a backbone. Definitely became more expressive with air. — 2 days ago

La Closerie Fac-simile Extra Brut Pinot Meunier Rosé Champagne 2015

Enjoyed it a ton but was expecting more because of all the hype. Great texture on the palate with plush red fruit. Good acidity as a backbone with hints of nuttiness as well. Still an absolutely beautiful champagne! — 15 hours ago

@Shay A This was v good but may prefer La Closerie, but this is all personal preference at this point.

Bodega Septima

Mendoza Malbec 2018

There is a mineral thing there, like pencil lead along with a bright black fruit like blackberry. The palate is very joyful. A strong acid backbone, a nice blackberry fruit all along, blossoming all the way, a spherical mid palate with a little bit of a grain. Long fruity finish. Wow this is simple but so good! — 4 days ago
