Educated Guess North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Almost purple. Rich. Smooth. Almost a dusty kind of dryness. Probably great with the cattiness of meat or pasta. — a month ago

Leeuwin Estate

Art Series Margaret River Riesling

Missing bae today, she’s in Chicago. Work travel is back I guess. Reading a little Calvino, watching a little Westworld and sipping on some Riesling.

Blades of grass, a cool day on a hike, the breeze that passed through a distant waterfall seen from atop the destined viewpoint.

A silk shawl draping the tongue in stone fruit, river water. Peaches and apples and fronds of supple leaves.

A bit of effervescence, a bit of acidity, a bit of petrol. Leads to a balance straddling dry and sweet at once.

Don’t really understand the underrated quality on the reviews, must be something I’m missing 🤷🏽‍♂️

I’ll go contrarian.

Chablis Chardonnay 2019

Nose is quite dense. Blind I might guess California.

Big fruit for a Chablis. Tropical. Minerality is an after thought. Very delicious.

Poor typicity. Delicious .

Ried Schütt Durnsteiner Smaragd Riesling 2013

If Kellerberg is aromatic Schutt is definitely pristine minerality
Searing and tingling
In such great shape
This wine can be enjoyed now or in long time too is my guess
From fresh grape to kiwi and persimmon
A bit gingery, lemongrass, marzipan and a river bed of stones.. and freshness that keeps coming back
And so much fun going on
A winter riesling in a way
Extremely long

Tour Rain Cabernet Franc - Gamay Blend 2018

40 gamay / 60 cab franc. A little savage / rustic / disjointed. Comes together and much more balanced on day 2. Really nice. Dark, medium body, smooth, a little spice. If I tasted this this blind i might guess Cru Bojo. Does a decent Touraine/Saumur impression too. Nailed it, I’d say — 10 hours ago

Bright expression. Agreed it’s got decades in front of it. Just don’t see it getting any better. @Mike R

@Mike R Love the Angus Barn. I’m originally from the RDU area. My folks still live there. Do you live in that area? If so, maybe we can have a glass sometime when I’m in town.

Yep I’m in the RDU area and of course will share a glass or two - just need a little time to plan it as I travel a lot
