Gamble Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2022

This wine is a party animal if like me your version of party is delicious food and drink but also maybe a fun dress and the part is gonna end up being 8 hours long because the music and company you cannot part from. Went to one of those this weekend that also involved a boat but lacked the wine element. Wish I’d had this.
It’s the perfect balance of funfunfun tropical/sweet grapefruit vibes with impressively poised acidity and a bit of salinity bringing the sophistication. Juicy too. Makes you thirsty for more. Party on.

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. — 3 years ago

Volnay Santenots-du-Milieu 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1986

Wow. Premiere Cru Volnay from 1986! A gamble if a purchase and boy oh boy was it singing. Really pretty with character without some of the negative decay aspects. Beautiful color and weight. Smiles all around. With 4HHM for Sunday gravy. — 10 months ago

Red Rock Terrace Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

I can count the number of 2000 vintage bottles I’ve had on one hand, avoided like the 98’s.
Great cork for 20 year Napa,, juice isn’t too shabby either. But definitely not a top vintage. Parker 87 back in the day.
Worth the gamble at $100.00

Exactly why I skipped it, I have 1 more 2000 experiment left, Chappellet Pritchard hill then I’ll decide whether to venture back to 2000 again.
