Pine Ridge Vineyards

Napa Valley Petit Verdot 2012

Wine #3 of the night. Probably the surprise of the night and a wonderful one at that. Big dark nose of cocoa and black fruits led to a deep, lush palate perfectly balancing mocha, black plum, cherry, oak and baking spices — 6 days ago

Domaine Ilarria

Irouléguy Gros Manseng-Petit Manseng Blend 2017

This is a beautiful wine. If only I hadn’t been such a knucklehead and put it in the freezer four nights ago only to forget about it. Huge surprise that after such abuse it was delicious and seemed no worse for wear. Replete with notes of honey, toast, bay and mint, with a rich and luscious mouthfeel and a pleasing streak of acidity. Texturally and aromatically, like a bright and tart Rhone white. — 4 days ago

@Eric @Dawn E. Lol. Let’s chalk it up to science. Turns out a little dip below freezing is not the end of the world for a still white wine.

If this is petit, they’re Gran Crus will be off the hook. Like Le mensil, lemons, stones, a little bit of candy on the finish mixed with salinity. Pith. — 3 days ago

Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Drinking very nice right now. Lots of dark cherries 🍒 on this one. Spice has petered on this one. Nice wine. Wouldn’t hold too much longer. — 3 days ago

Petit Verdot 2014


This is a very enjoyable Petit Verdot from Israel.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, vanilla, licorice, vinaigrette, cloves, bitter herbs, spices, earth, wood, wet leaves, dark chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and herbs.

Good right out of the bottle, but has a great nose after 3 hours of airtime.

Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. This Single Vineyard has a nice grip on the mouthfeel, which is very enjoyable.

Still drinking nicely, but showing the beginning of the end, so drink up.

100% Petit Verdot grapes from the Judean Hills. Kosher and not Mevushal.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Château Chasse-Spleen

Moulis en Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Tar, cedar, black currant and maybe a little bit of red currant too. It's a very nice, noble nose. The palate is well designed. A strong acid drive, a good width with a nice matter on the side, a bit of a grain which expands in the rear to create a nice wall of tannins which are now well integrated. The finish shows a nice blossoming fruit, these fine tannins too, creating some asperities, a nice, noble bitter note appears at the very end. It's a bit under the 2 previous vintages I tasted but it's a very good wine for the vintage. — 15 hours ago
