Saint-Joseph Syrah 2018

2018 vintage. Initial nose with a trace fecal component that blew off 2-3 mins after opening. Heavy metal body. Nose reformed to feature grounding/hot Szechuan pepper, traces of fresh ginger, heaps of bramble fruit and watercress. Lengthy, astringent, iodine-laced and plummy. chocolate, kirschy finish. Almost imperceptible cedar and tobacco hovering about that may gain more prominence in the coming years but for now, they’re on the back burner. Sounds totally disjointed and wild but it works. Last tasted 4.8.22. — a month ago

Le Puits Sec Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

Medium garnet color, no trace of oxidation. Cherry, sulfur and oak on the nose. Closed but opening to subtle red fruitiness and hints of black raspberry. Based on first few gulps, I’ll drink the remaining bottles this summer. Probably paid a fraction of current market so very happy to enjoy these — a month ago

Hyland Vineyard Riesling 2017

Decanted 3 hrs/Chilled 45min.
N: Dried honey,Apples, pears, butterscotch, pink grapefruit, mineral, Big nose that jumps out of the glass.
P: completely dry but tangy as all get out. Lots of grapefruit surrounded by rocks, prickly. mouth filling at the same time. Impression of fatness. Green, very refreshing. If one had the patience to lay some down….oh my. Raised at least partly in native Oregonian oak, that Martin Woods coopers. Not a trace on the wine.
Thanks

Cuvée Rubis 1er Cru Brut Champagne Blend

Another rendition of one of my favorite wines, a most sensual and erotic wine. An alluring deep salmon rose color in the glass with nice effervescence of small bubbles. The nose immediately shows as sweet, sweeter than I would expect but that soon dissipates. Strawberries up front with red cherries and a touch of apple. Crushed herbs and mild spice after some time. There’s a floral aspect here that’s outstanding, as well.

So many rosé champagnes are so similar in ambition and execution that it’s nice to find something that’s a marked step above. 90/10 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay and disgorged in October of 2019 with a dosage of 9 g/l. Nervy and thrilling, it’s an exciting champagne that doesn’t skimp on power. Good balance and structure with a vinous nature. Playful and teasing, without a trace of austerity.

Pure sex in the mouth with candied raspberries and more wild strawberries. Blood orange, grapefruit, and passion for days. Peaches, melons, and romance. A little chalk, a little lust. One of my favorites, year in year out.

Les Favières Marsannay Pinot Noir 2017

Can’t believe how good this is for the (restaurant) price. Milan Kundera would say, This one’s as light as a feather on the palate but leaves an unmistakeable trace of longing — 3 months ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Outstanding wine, artfully balanced, jammy beginning but there isn’t a trace afterwards; rich intensity. The complexity comes in a “slow mo” kinda way on the palate due the hefty velvety feel but it is there, and the long tannic vanillish finish is, closure. — 15 days ago

Love this wine!

Domaine Tinel-Blondelet

Arelles Pouilly Fumé Sauvignon 2020

I had and loved the ‘19 a few months ago and the ‘20 is just as good. When you want to show a wine newbie what a classic Pouilly-Fume is, this 50-year old vine cuvée is your example. So many examples are over-the-top lean and so herbie/grassy, but this one’s nose has ripe apple and gooseberry, loads of flinty minerality, and just a touch of freshly picked green herbies. So fresh and inviting. Mouthfilling and zesty, so minerally on the palate. Again, just the barest trace of green herbs. — a month ago

Bechthold Vineyard Cinsault 2020

@Delectable Wine oddly enough this is a Blanc de Cinsault, one of the silver linings of 2020.

When the fires hit early in harvest 2020, Will and Karen hedged their bets by pressing some of the 100+ year old vine Cinsault from the legendary Bechtold Vineyard immediately, and the result is a joy: pear, pomello, white grapefruit, some pith and white pepper on the finish. Fragrant and light.

In good news, the regular Cinsault from the vintage also turned out beautifully and isn’t showing a trace of smoke taint—or at least when I tried it a few months back.
