Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

Concentrated and powerful. Also a very clean, fruity (ripe fruits of the forest) and classy wine. Underbrush. All kinds of herbs (like laurel and thyme). Went well with confit de canard, Belgian fries and lentils with fennel, and after that it stood its ground pretty solid. Great with food. Compelling food for thought when drunk on it’s own. — 9 months ago

Oak Farm Vineyards

Lodi Barbera 2017

This is an interesting red wine from California. Showing tangy red and black fruits, vanilla, light wood, spices, dark chocolates, tobacco leaf, herbs, earth and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Nice length on the finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (30 minutes).

This Barbera is easy drinking with a strong nose and a soft mouthfeel.

Fruit forward and balanced. Would be interesting to taste this in 3 years.

I've had it before, and this time I gave it a light chill. A nice porch wine, and very tasty.

At this point, the alcohol is nicely integrated, although pretty high, so watch out as it is very easy to drink.

I paired it with a burger and fries.

15% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Manzanilla Deliciosa En Rama Saca de Primavera Palomino Fino

I smell apricots, honeysuckle and a touch of a wood refinishing shop where an old man has been rubbing turpentine onto ancient woods. The smell of this Manzanilla makes my mouth water and I didn't want to take my nose out of the glass.
On first taste it has a bit of an 'Uh oh what have so gotten myself into' kick in the pants of your pallete. As the sherry warms in your mouth let it explore of the crevices and you will find flavors in corners of your mouth that I you have not encountered before in any bottle of non fortified white wine.
The freshness of this when served chilled and the amazingly long aftertaste make it one of the few wines that I prefer to drink on their own but it pairs great with simple salty food like premium organic fries tossed sea salt!
A steal at $16 for a half bottle at Little Death. (I've paid $13 for a three ounce pour of this at a tapas joint)

Abraxas Scintilla Sonoma Vineyard White Blend 2018

Tremendous acidity - paired with fava beans and a lamb gyro and French fries. Would this pair with anything? Maybe! — 2 years ago

Super smooth, not acidic at all. Loved it with a burger and fries :) — 2 years ago

Scarpa (Antica Casa Vinicola Scarpa)

I Bricchi Barbera d'Asti 2007

French fries, umami savory on the nose. Followed by good amount of acidity. Surprising this is 2007 vintage for this amount of acidity. Still delicious, interesting wine. — 3 years ago


Brut Champagne Blend

Smells cidery, mouth watering, creamy...(still processing). Eating duck fat fries with champagne aioli. Yum and yum. — 4 years ago
