Folk Machine Suisun Valley Charbono 2018

I really liked this. And I am a fan of the obscure charbono grape. Starts out tough and rough but interesting. With a lot of air (I tasted over a few days)... the tough dissipates but all the interesting bits linger. If you imagine what that label taste like... you got it. — 14 days ago

Fleurie Gamay 2018

Insane spices on the nose. Confectionery cherry fruit. Smells like a Gamay cotton candy machine. Palate is ripe and explosive. Shows some of the 18 “lack of focus” but is pure and linear as well. Was more focused in 17 and I presume 19. Juicy and clean. Doesn’t quite have that ethereal, compact quality it usually has. Also a hint of funk/barnyard on the nose. Showing a tiny bit of heat as well . — 2 months ago

Arroyo Grande Valley Chardonnay 2018

Creamed apple, peach, candied lemon on the nose. white flowers and honeysuckle and a little smoke. All of these come back on the palate with a little vanilla and cream.

Nicely balanced and good with chicken pot pie.

"A Red Herring Afternoon" Dry Muscat 2018

Loved this wine. Super floral, so pretty. Had a touch of RS, which was absolutely perfect with Mexican. This wine would pair well with a lot of different types of cuisine, and the price is right. Pairs like Riesling. — 3 months ago

Cornas Syrah 2015

The. Real. Deal. Very firm tannin, as expected. Fine grained and supple. Such a fantastic nose, it certainly delivered all that is promised. If only my time machine was working today I’d have gone forward ten years for a taste... — 2 months ago

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling #18 2017

Lyle Fass

Just a sick wine. What a nose. Confectionary green apple. Tree bark. Slate. So complex and alluring. Some light spice and such intense minerality. Some gorgeous vulcanized rubber, insane apple juice, like God’s apple juice. Palate is a dream. Sappy, complex and concentrated and the key is these are more akin to the Spatlese of 25-35 years ago than today’s sugar bombs. It finished dry and almost with some foie gras. Tingling and electric acids and such a brilliant, complex crescendo of a finish. And it finishes DRY. But it’s so obviously a Spatlese. Hot Tub Spatlese Time Machine. Amazingly clean wine. Palate is 2/3 minerals and 1/3 fruit. The balance is superb. The whole thing is just beautiful.

Wow acid and structure after many hours open and length increases. So so good. What a pure, slapping WSS. Genius.
