Valdespino

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)

Scarpa (Antica Casa Vinicola Scarpa)

Tettimorra Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Absolutely a knockout. Last had almost 2 years ago and the time has been good. Decanted 1.5 hours, still fairly primary - would be a delicious one to age more, but so it goes. Aromatically incredible. So deep on the palate with that perfect refreshing note on the finish. Excellent pairing with fennel rubbed roast chicken, mushrooms cooked in the chicken fat, and oven fries with a tarragon aioli. — 7 months ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

On to the 2012 Pontet-Canet from Paulliac paired with grilled lamb chops and made from scratch boulonese sauce. Fantastic. The wine expressed it selves very well after a good hour and half of decanting at about 60 F. The earthy umami flavors of the food propelled the wine above its weight. But the absolute best ever tasting quartered, seasoned potato wedges/fries from our guests brought the wine into outer orbit. The duck fat tasting fries revealed herbaceous floral notes on the mid palet and created a soothing long finish. With smooth fine grained tannins. — 2 years ago

Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne Chardonnay

Best. Brut. Bubbles. Expensive but worth it. Some dry earth but lots of apple and pear. Everything has to compete with this. Serve with cheeseburgers and fries!!! — 2 years ago

Robert Sinskey Vineyards

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 :) — 3 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. — 4 years ago
