Rivesaltes 1979

Shay A
9.2

One of the wines I opened for my annual WWC hosting.

Very unique. Mostly Grenache based. Came across as a tawny port and Sherry combo. Fairly light ruby in the glass, with a whiff of Sherry/oxidized notes right off the bat. Lots of old fig, graham cracker, cinnamon and crème brûlée. Not heavy or rich on the palate…there is a floral aspect to it, with candied red fruits too. Doesn’t have the depth or complexity of a great vintage port, but it showed extremely well for its age and still paired well with Stilton cheese and candied oranges!

@Shay A I assume this is a fortified style Shay?

Stilton. Yuk. I can’t handle it.

Bambule! Burgenland Pinot Noir

Bright crisp light bodied chillable red with loads of tart red berry notes. The longer it’s opened the funkier it gets. — 25 days ago

Cuvée Les Equinces Bourgogne White Blend 2018

In some ways White Burgundy chose the tough life where success is measured against expert oak integration and that 'aint an easy thing to do well.

Les Equinces uses oak in the right amounts creating an upfront spiced vanilla lemon profile for first impressions.

But it's a wine that's good beyond oak influence. Personality hides for a bit, but let this decant and warm and sharp points resolve to soft textures. Vanilla lemon turns to Kentucky bourbon and cinnamon spiked graham cracker, fragrant white flowers.

@Ely Cohn 18 white burg is a vintage that a lot of people like to criticize, but all my people killed it.

Robert Biale Vineyards

Old Kraft Vineyard Zinfandel 2019

Inviting perfume, warm plum and black cherry, graham cracker, sweet spice, pepper and a touch of herbs. Tannins and acidity are detailed, just enough flesh, tastes like west side St Helena for sure. — 3 months ago

Koreaa Grüner Veltliner Blend 2021

A Gemischter Satz from Burgenland, slightly naturalistic, a bit funky, highly drinkable.
A flowery nose with some ripe pear, apple, summer meadow but also a salty, herby note adding an interesting edge.
On the palate this is vibrant, energetic, juicy. There’s a bit of grip, a beautiful mouthfeel, nice mid palate presence. Yellow fruit, ripe & a bit bruised, with great juiciness and an underlying salty minerality.
This has character, interesting edges and good depth. And disappears in a blink.
Lobe the label, too!

Nadia Vintner's Collection Pinot Noir

Really nice find by @Caroline Graham. Nose felt a little sacramental initially but it opened up well. Red fruits just on the underripe/ripe edge, ashen earth. — 3 months ago
