No. 81 Sonoma Collection Chardonnay 2016

Was expecting heavy metal given the gigantic bottle and got completely the opposite - elegant if a bit thin but with no edge on the finish....very nice — a month ago

Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Black currant, cedar, tar, cigar box, coffee, vanilla. Quite a complex nose. The palate is very concentrated with a strong acid backbone, and some dark and dense matter with black currant and somehow dusty tannins that kick everything up. The finish is very long and very wide with some bitterness popping up, black currant, and a pinch of salt. We paired this baby with a gigantic beef T-bone. Perfect pairing. It's still very young and needs time. Not a 9 because it's still too young — a year ago

If they are as concentrated as this one (which they might be) they can rest for a good 20 years without any problem.

Bodegas Atalaya

Alaya Tierra Garnacha Tintorera 2013

Popped and poured. It should probably be said that I’m typically not attracted to this style of wine (nearly 16% ABV) but this was undeniably fun and surprisingly interesting to drink. This was a gigantic wine; a veritable shipping container of blue and red fruits, a flash of scorched earth, baking spices, and licorice. Still tannic and the acid is somewhat hidden but present. Long finish. This has been drinking consistently well over the last two years and should continue to do so for the next few years. — 3 years ago

Jacques Selosse

Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Dsgd 12/1/17 - how does one put this wine into words... it’s sheer complexity and unrivaled structural perfection. Its nose has caramel, mahogany, citrus, berries, flowers all packed into so many layers. The wine changes with air and temperature revealing all things interesting. They attack is so well balanced, as is the entire wine. It’s a black LBD of a wine with sequins all over. Not gigantic but also fully expressive, it sits on a throne of champagne royalty. — 8 months ago

Harris Bridge Vineyard

Sweet Vermouth

I am a gigantic new fan of Harris Bridge near Wren, Or. It’s pretty bold to make only apertifs, vermouths, and stickies in this Pinot driven market. They do it so well. The base wine and brandy is all from their own vineyard and still. All blended with botanicals from their property and elsewhere. The Reverie has primary notes of orange zest, chamomile and cardamom, finishing with melony herbaceous note that I can’t quite wrap my head around. — 2 years ago

La Champine Syrah 2015

Big, smoky and meaty. Gigantic and mouth-coating. Again, a wonderful value for around $20 at retail. — 3 years ago

Brunier & Lynch

Racines Grenache Blend

What a crazy surprise this wine was. I was thinking it would be typical Grenache dominated Rhône wine that was light and fruity..not all the case!! What I got was powerhouse gigantic wine of incredible depth... love the grippy structure, just so many layers of strawberry jam, raspberry preserve , black olives and balsamic peppercorns...this is one of my favorites wines I’ve tried in awhile & it’s def not because of its smoothness. — 9 months ago

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Fontalloro Toscana Sangiovese 2013

Upgrade to 9.2 after one year. Gigantic evolution between uncorking and pouring the last drop (+/- 5 hours). Everything is getting clear. So probably in one year just perfect. And guess what: as always it will be my last bottle...🤦‍♂️ — 2 years ago

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

One of the most intensely concentrated Napa Cabs I have ever tasted. From the BEST parcel of To Kalon up against the hillside (Mondavi has been buying the family fruit for years). Gigantic old narled Cabernet vines....a true Napa treasure. — 2 years ago
