Boundary Breaks Vineyard

Methode Champenoise Brut New York Sparkling Blend 2012

Nose has lemon juice/zest on sourdough bread, peeled green apple, sugar cubeb and lemon peel.

Palate has salted green apple slices, oxidized yellow apple, yellow cherry, minor oak notes and crusty bread.

Initially my prior notes assumed this might be Chardonnay based, but a few years on, I'm thinking no...my goal for this week is to get the actual blend out of Bruce Murray, and I'll report back.

This has a long window, future bottles can be 2028-2034. (Note to future self, move to cold cellar.)

Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Famiglia Gattavecchi Sangiovese 2012

I think we had this at Bruce and Kathy's - one of their favorites. Very good as I recall. — a year ago

Two Shepherds

Saarloos Vineyard Grenache Blanc 2030

Every time I drink a Two Shepherds wine I wish I had more in my cellar. A true “Rhône ranger” producing some of the best rhône-style wines in California. We all need to drink more Two Shepherds and support innovative winemakers who think about product quality before profit and ratings. Thanks to my dear friend Bruce for introducing me to Two Shepherds and supplying me! — 2 months ago
