Gamble Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Unique in many ways. Aromatics and acidity were upfront with a mouth coating wave of wet stone and white flowers. This wine was so rich and balanced- you could drink glass after glass and not be bored. A true joy to drink and share. Very well made. — 2 months ago

Château Siran

Saint-Jacques de Siran Bordeaux Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Occasionally, I gamble on 2nd, 3rd wines or even a Bordeaux Superior in grand Bordeaux vintages. Sometimes you find wines that out shine their price point. This is a bit less than I hoped for, yet still a nice wine at this age.

The Roasted, Rosemary Potatoes were best with Burgundy and the AB Ribcover best with the Bordeaux.

Always have two wines for your entree & sides . It’s always paid dividends for us.

Sonoma County Merlot 2011

Deep butter, boysenberry, and blackberries on the nose. Right on the cusp of maturity in my humble opinion but absolutely wonderful. Full body of dark purple jams very little tannins. I took a gamble hoping that age would beautify this wine and I suspect that’s the case. Yum! — 7 months ago

Holus Bolus Sta. Rita Hills Syrah 2017

Really dig all of their Syrahs I’ve tried. Felt like a gamble buying a bunch of wine based on a podcast ad but this one paid off. — 2 days ago

Azienda Agricola Roberto Voerzio

Disanfrancesco Langhe Nebbiolo 2018

Really liked this. Took a chance because the cost was right up there with the more affordable Barolos but thought that might have made it a good gamble. I’ve had a Barbera by Voerzio that I enjoyed. Classic beautiful Nebbiolo colour, most prominent on the nose for me was wood - cedar I’d say. Tasting strawberry - fruity for sure but with great structure to support it. Having said that, I didn’t find it to be overly aggressive on acid or tannins. I dig! — 3 days ago

Hugel et Fils

Gentil Alsace Sylvaner Blend 2018

I was looking for a wine that would pair with Indian curries and took a gamble on this Alsacian white. It paid off. I think Guy Ritchie was describing this when he wrote, “You’re fat, and look as though you should be, but you’re not.” Smells sweet, comes from a bottle that looks like it will be, but is surprisingly dry. — 6 months ago
