Domaine Du Grand Tinel

J. A. Balistreri Vineyards

American Carignan 2018

This is a nice red wine from Colorado. Showing red fruits with light wood, Mediterranean spices, peppercorn, cumin, herbs and earth.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Needs an hour to open up properly, so be patient. Showing a great nose, once it opens up.

Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.

Tangy and spicy. A good quality wine and very interesting.

A good food wine that I paired with Brie cheese.

15% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$38.

Eichberg Grand Cru Riesling 1997

At 23 years of age, this wine sings with a voice of tropical notes, yet never strays too far into the realm of cloyingly annoying thanks to high notes of tongue lashing acidity. Absolutely gorgeous. Lengthier than the administration of tRump and finishing with so much more grace. — 12 days ago

Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Tonight I have opened the 2016 Château Rauzan-Ségla. A beautiful left bank Bordeaux from Margaux made up of a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot.

On the nose there is black cherry, raspberry, plum, black currant, chocolate, herbs, violets, graphite and wet rich earth.

On the palate I am getting cherry, raspberry, red plum, green bell pepper, cassis, herbs, graphite and earth.

This beautifully complex full bodied wine has a smooth satin mouthfeel with medium + acidity and medium + fine grained tannins that seamlessly moves to a long good fruit/graphite finish. This is one wine you can get very excited about and enjoy having on any occasion and for many years to come. Have a great rest of your weekend and be safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷

Domaine Anne Gros

Richebourg Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Could not resist opening a second bottle. Drinks beautifully now, all fruit (raspberries, plums, cherries) with complex and meaty finish. All about power for now but will be tremendous in 10 years. At this rate I won’t have any left. — 9 days ago

Grand cru vintage Champagne Blend

Grand cru - vintage - yum.

Smells of fresh corn biscuits with a lot of yeast.
Granny Smith - classic, tangerine acidity. Tight and lengthy bubbles.
Citrusy finish and lengthy.. happily lost in thought..

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! 🍁 🦃 🍽 🎃

On Thanksgiving Eve, I bake the Pumpkin Pie. Mine is done with clove which gives it better complexity and a deeper flavor. It’s the only one I’ll eat now.

Turkey is busy soaking in brine.

Beautiful nose of bruised apple and yeastiness.

The mousse is gorgeous with micro oxygenation. Bruised apple/Bosc pair, sea spray, beautiful mid volcanics, powdery chalkiness with amazing lively acidity & smartly polished.

Over delivers its price point of $39.99.
