E Prove Vin de Corse Calvi Nielluccio Blend 2016

After reading Eric Asimov’s article on the fallacy of “noble grapes” today, I ended up discussing lesser known regions & grapes with a friend. My love of Corsica was part of that discussion & that prompted me to grab this for tonight. Darker fruit, effortless palate weight & nuanced texture. Beautiful stuff. — 13 days ago

Frog's Leap

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The legendary John Williams and his team has put together a fantastic wine this vintage and as always a bargain considering the origin. Crafted as always in the classic style, yet no denying of its provenance. The 2017 Frog’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon walks the talk with a luxury appeal, a fashion model in an haute couture dress.
Ripe fruit with soft edges but with plenty of energy and nerve. Cassis, black plums, red strawberries and floral minty lift backed by a sweet spice, graphite, tobacco, pine wood and dusty rocks.
Refreshing acidity, pronounced but approachable tannins that is balanced by a soft and fruity texture. Dense and concentrated flavor profile with a fresh spine that permeates the palate. Strong mid palate and an evolving complexity through a solid finish.

83% Cabernet Sauvignon accompanied by Cab Franc and Merlot.
13.8% 20mths French oak

Cédric Bouchard

Roses de Jeanne La Haute Lemblé Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2008

Alder Yarrow

Thanksgiving, so decided to drink one of my better bottles of bubbly, this 2008 Cedric Bouchard “Le Haut-Lemblé” Blanc de Blancs. Like most of Bouchard’s work it is bottled at lower pressures which means very soft, fine bubbles on which ride flavors of kelp, seawater, roasted nuts and dried citrus rind. Gorgeously detailed and saline with mouthwatering clarity and depth. Delicious. — 6 days ago

Château Haute Vallée

Bordeaux Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Nice solid Bordeaux, overly complex but a tasty drop. Leaves the tongue a little dry, I like that, some don't. — 2 months ago
