Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Tried twice! Blend of 93.3% Cab Sauv, 3.8% Petit Verdot, 2.3% Cab Franc, 0.5% Merlot & 0.1% Malbec, aged for 17 months in French oak, 65% new, deep dark Ruby with elegant pronounced aromas of ripe dark fruits, cedar and floral spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry and currants with notes of mushroom, herbs, pepper spice and earthy notes. Fine big sweet tannins, long finish ending with cacao, smoky oak, vanilla, fruit and mineral tang. Very nice, aging well, but time will reward! — 9 days ago

@Ira Schwartz 2017! Had the Lagrein Riserva as well (pic lost) — younger still!

Domaine Le Soula

Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Grenache Blend 2016

Been waiting for years to get back to London and bring this home as it’s only available at Berry Bros. & Rudd as far as I know. Remarkable mineral and acidic cut for a southern French white, like a Loire chenin but with a bit more heft and roundness. Green mango, bitter grapefruit, honey, pear, smoke and spice on the finish. Worth checking a bag for! — 3 days ago

Cave Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Drinking the 2013 in 2022. Wonderful big bouquet. Rich oak notes and deep dark fruit. Smooth flavor from start to finish! Well balanced flavors. Slightly earthy with oaky notes. Tart cherry and dark ripe fruit to start with a very smooth finish. Love it!!!! — 6 days ago

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2000

Stunning bottle! Far less dark and brooding than 2006, the uber rare 2000 Montepulciano is elegant, seamless and impeccably detailed. It’s layered with crazy depth of aromatics that soar flaunting BBQ spice, espresso, dried flowers and red fruit. It has off the charts complexity and a wild untamed nature to its expression that is as intriguing as it comes. The palate is precise, pure and balanced with a stunningly elegant texture and incredible length. Masterful wine. — 6 days ago

Pascal Jolivet

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2015

At nearly 7 years old, the 2015 Pascal Jolivet Sancerre pours a golden color. On the nose, notes of bruised apple, ripened pear, honey and pineapple upside down cake. On the palate, bruised red apple, Bartlett pear, honey and clove. Decent acid. Long finish. I don’t usually age Sancerre…but I dig the expression that some age has brought. I paired very well with chicken fried rice. Drink now…unless you want to see how far it goes, you know, for science. — 7 days ago
