Hölle Riesling 2018

Freshly exploded river rocks on the nose. Some petrified green apple. White flowers. Almost stinging in its intensity.

Palate is so fresh. Mineral. Green apple. Lovely grip. Great density. This hidden richness.

Finish is green apple. Long. Almost succulent.

Jaspis Baden Alte Reben Spätburgunder 2011

I thought that this vintage had peaked but this is still going strong

Needs an hour to open.

Nose is plum with a hint of cranberry.

Palate is deep. Dark plum. Some spice. Quite delicious. Rich but in an elegant way. Great texture. Clingy but not thick. Terrific density.

Long dense spicy rich finish. Wow.

Côte-Brune Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2015

Nose has that old burgundy water on hot brick aromatic. Deep really dense violets. Complex. Wow. Stunningly aromatic.

Palate is sweet succulent fruit. Sweet cherries. Incredible. So juicy. A hint of cherry licorice. A hint of balsamic but not unpleasant. Lovely old classy richness. Tastes old and expensive.

Montmains Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Chablisien profile but very rich.

Nose is rich. Almost buttery. Not oaky. Perfumed though in a lovely way. Really pretty.

Palate has green apple. But almost like it’s baked. Some minerality. But not a screamer. Really delicious. Rich on the palate.

A very enjoyable wine if a bit atypical.

As this opens its spectacular. I shouldnt really go crazy on it bc the vintage is so reviled. But it’s amazing. Rich yet elegant. Aromatic. Complex. Wow.

Kami Brut Nature Greco di Tufo

A lot like champagne aromatically, but on the austere side. So mineral! A strong suggestion of crushed granite and rocks, with just a modicum of green apple and brioche. Really lovely. Even better with air. Killer value. Thankful for my first Fass Selections shipment. — 2 days ago

@Josh Morgenthau Spring ship is light for me; I'm just hoping not to get kicked out of the house when she sees the truckload coming home sometime in Dec.

Riserva Cilento Aglianico 2012

@delectable cilento aglianico riserva

Nose is blueberry spice and blackberry. Elegant. Very integrated. Deep. A subtle richness. A hint of old school well made California cab. Very deep. Sensual. Some porcini. A ray of lilac shining through a window.

Palate is so elegant in fitting with the house style. Just pumps juiciness. Elegant blackberries. So silky. So juicy. A hint of spice but it’s more in the background. Some blackberry licorice. Maximally delicious. I can’t believe this is Aglianico. Wow. Stunning.

Finish has this palate coating freeze dried blackberry thing. So juicy and long. Like the flavors somehow self replicate.

On day 2 elegant plum flower on the nose. Really pretty.
