This is an AMAZING dessert wine. It's fruity and citrusy and sweet (but not sticky sweet), and it has a nice undertone of vanilla that comes through. — 2 months ago
Black fruits, Fresh cherries, medium to higher tannin, nice finish, round, dry Cabernet Franc. — 2 months ago
The 2019 vintage is perfection! It's partially oaked, so you get that buttery warmth, but it has the refreshing edge from the stainless steel. — 2 months ago
High acidity, crisp finish, slight floral on the nose. One of my top favorite Albariños. — 2 months ago
Similar to their standard Friulano, but slightly sweeter and more refined. Better at a warmer temperature. House white for this Spring. — 3 months ago
One of the birthday bottles I opened for my 33rd. Aubert chardonnays, for me, are the total package. Aside from Marcassin (and even then, it’s not fair because the 2013 hasn’t been officially released yet), there is no other new world producer of Chardonnay I’d rather have. I opened this Eastside because it was in the home cellar and I didn’t feel like traveling to storage...good and bad scenario!
Opening their single vineyard chards this young (aside from Hudson), is normally a crime, but I read a lot of reviews of how good this was young and WOW are they right. Aromatically it sports Aubert’s signature lemon cream, ginger, honey roasted cashews and a slight reductive note. The palate shows plenty of lemon cream, marzipan, smoked lemon, and stone fruit like guava...what makes this a standout (like other Aubert chards), is the acidity and structure. Normally this would make a chard flabby or over the top, but it wears this profile so well. I could have polished this off with a straw.

Natural Southwest French white blend for under 15$-Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, semillion & Chenin Blanc. I don’t like Alsatian blends but this I do: like a rich Muscadet. Floral but not heavy on the Sauvignon Blanc, balanced. Celebration of lifting of Covid restrictions in New York State, with friends on the Hudson — 8 days ago
