Dom Pérignon

Brut Champagne Blend 1996

POV: you’ve been asking your dad for 15 years when we can drink this wine and he finally opens it to celebrate your wedding weekend. Golden hue. Lemon, bruised apple, brioche. Soft moussey bubbles, dry and velvety on the tongue. Absolutely AMAZING to drink. — 3 days ago

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

Go easy with air. After an hour decant, I found this underwhelming. It was open and soft, but with the air it lacked complexity and depth. My bad for not tasting prior to the decant. — a month ago

Château Palmer

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

At age 22, Palmer 2000 is finally in a great spot and unquestionably accessible, really popping after an hour in the decanter. It has an explosive nose showing layers of intense blackberry fruit, mocha, cigar box and a kiss of cedar and soil tones. The palate, while still showing some ripe tannins, is velvety and seductive with tremendous depth, balanced acids and massive length. Many fabulous years ahead for this beauty. — a month ago

Allagash Brewing Company

Curieux Belgian-Style Golden Ale

A nice summer brew with 10.2 abv. We’re not in Mexico anymore Toto!
Even though I do enjoy a nice Modelo during the heat, but it’s just not very strong or flavorful compared to a bourbon barrel aged beer

Love Allagash. Drank a good bit when up in Maine years ago.

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Celebrating with a couple of nice bottles tonight

2.5 hour decant(lots of chunky/fine/cloudy sediment). An astonishing dark purplish magenta color. On the nose: expressive notes of plum, cedar, worn leather, musky earth, floral, and smokey vanilla. Taste: smooth, creamy, rich wine with plum, cedar, tobacco wrapper, burnt earth, and a white pepper- strawberry-graphite long finish. YUM!! Comfortably in its drinking window(with decant) and more years to go.

Realm Cellars

The Bard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

My first bottle of the 18s. Consistently excellent. Nice floral nose. Inky dark dark red. Black fruit, chalky tannins, great mouthfeel. Nice finish. Clearly will improve in a few years but it’s drinking great now. Give it an hour decant at least. — a month ago

Bonneau du Martray

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2006

Celebrating my b-day today with this beautiful Golden hay Chardonnay and sushi! Yummy!!! Nose is subtle but complex. Initially, Apple-pear and coconut dominate the senses followed by lemon zest, baked apple and sandalwood. Taste - white peach, apricot fruits and floral are soft on the palate, but the texture of a chalky oil feel coat the entire mouth and secondary notes of orange rind, lemon, green melon and minerals give this wine its long finish. A great evening of celebration and gratitude! — 13 days ago
