Paragon Vineyard Grüner Veltliner 2014

Lemon and lime citrus and fresh green veggies on the nose, light body and tart acid on the palate, very green and clean! Perfect summer sipper. — 5 months ago

Le Cigare Blanc 2018

The 2018 Le Cigare Blanc was made from 54% Grenache Blanc grapes and 46% Vermentino from the Central Coast vineyards Cedar Lane, Paragon and Beeswax. I'll admit, I miss the Roussanne, which was jettisoned in favor of another grape. Fortunately, I love Vermentino, too, and it delivers enough salinity to be a worthy replacement. The nose threw me, because of its strong fruit’n’floral aromas. After a few minutes, the salinity came through and even more savory notes appeared on the nose. However, as with Le Cigare Volant, the Blanc is probably much more approachable in its new form. It doesn't mean I like it better. — a year ago

Winninger Brückstück Riesling 2016

Needs an hour decant at least at this point. My guess is it needs 2 years to really strut its stuff. A baby Hercules. Incredible coiled power at this point. You can feel it more than taste it. Incredible spice. Lemon pith. Mineral. Petrol. Really saturates the palate. Hints of green Apple but mere hints. Has a weight like Kellers hubacker but more restrained. Almost like really really great meursault. A new Star is born. Stock up. — 2 years ago

Paragon Vineyard Grüner Veltliner 2013

Only getting more refined with time this is showing beguiling complexity reminiscent of some good 1er chablis can’t quite define if that’s butter or silk or withering white flowers. Loving it. — 6 months ago

Hundsrück Trocken Spätburgunder ,,J" 2012

This is unknit right now. Baby Hercules. Nose is still a bit woody. But if you peer under the covers it has it all. Dense fruit. Spice. Acidity. Length. Clings to the palate. Awesome texture. A thing of beauty. This rating is a low end of what this should be. The freshness of this wine given the density is astounding. Crazy dense length. Like squint your eyes in disbelief length. It should be epic in 2-3 years. One if the great vineyards of Europe. Old school. Bought from fass selections. — 2 years ago

Paragon Vineyard Viognier 2015

Perfect hue for the Golden state. Nose is honey, cucumber and something funky. Maybe ‘pool toy’? Flavors are luscious. Streaks of acid and bitterness pair perfectly with the melon, apricots, yellow plums and honeysuckle. Pretty round in the mouth. It’s a fragrant and tasty CA Viognier. Hasn’t lost any freshness 5 years on. And it’s SIP Certified Sustainable to boot. — 5 months ago

Forster Pechstein GG Riesling 2014

Intensely mineral nose, like Hercules wrung our the rocks. Deep citrus pith and green apple fruit too. So intense and mineral in the mouth. Salty. Very little fruit, but still a friendly style. Gorgeous! Nice treat to have my bro open this after a hellish 9 hour trip from DC to West Hartford . — 2 years ago
