Domaine de Trévallon

Alpilles Cabernet Syrah 2013

We loved this wine. Opened it and the St Patrice Chat du Pape as an experiment. Had FFT porterhouse one night and homemade pizzas the second. Best description - St Patrice is your wife, comfortable and loving and smooth, and Trevallon is your mistress, sexy and edgy and delicious. — 7 months ago

Domaine Carneros (Taittinger)

Cuvée de la Pompadour Brut Pinot Noir Chardonnay Rosé Blend

Pompadour Brut Rosé celebrates the life and times of Madame de Pompadour (mistress of Louis XV) credited with introducing Champagne to the court. Blend of 58% Pinot Noir, 42% Chardonnay, aromas of floral strawberry scents with yeasty notes on good mousse and bubble flow. On the palate raspberry and strawberry flavors with round yeasty tones adding bits of vanilla. Well balanced, lingering ending in true brut style, dry with yeasty mineral character. A joy to drink. — a year ago

La Rioja Alta

Viña Ardanza Reserva Especial Tempranillo Blend 2010

Delectable is fickle at times. Writing a review and somehow doesn’t store and save it. So second attempt a day later. Vibrant pie cherry notes up front, integrated oak tannins with strong vanilla notes (American oak?!) gave it good balance and a lingering finish. Limited depth. — 2 months ago

Château Beauchêne

Côtes du Rhône Viognier 2018

Viognier, harvested as it’s barely ripe and still pear-like. Excellent acidity and zip...features sorely lacking in many tired, hot and treacly southern Rhône bottlings based on this fickle grape. Ridiculous quality for the price. — a year ago

Luna Matta Vineyard Greanache Blanc 2016

Palmer Emmitt

Oxidative, which can happen quickly with Grenache Blanc whether or not it’s the intended style, but full of character and texture after three years in the bottle. Nose is rich with marzipan and cantaloupe and the palate is weighty (14.5% alc.) but nicely balanced with enough acid to freshen it up and keep me reaching for another glass. I would love to have tasted this wine when young for comparison - GB is such a fickle little grape. — 5 months ago
