Barone Ricasoli

Brolio Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2019

2019, good solid Chianti, a little alcoholic burn to it, more on the rustic side but overall very pleasant. Sharp tart cherry mid palate with lots of other herbs and fruits with a hint of smoke and leather way ion the background. — a year ago

Domaine Isabel Ferrando

Colombis Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

Amazing purchase after a day of riding the Rhône Valley wine region. Stopped at the Chateau and Cave for a last tasting. We were so impressed with the diversity of the wine and the Blends that we bought a bottle and enjoyed it ion the hotel terrace. What a treat! Beautiful spice and fruit flavors with that mineral earth taste. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for the perfect blend with a full body taste!! — 2 years ago

Clos Saint-Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera

Toscana Sangiovese 2013

Imperial Treasure Teochew Ion with Andrew Dutton. Barnyard nose. Smooth and silky tannins. Guessed young Barolo or Barbaresco.

Powerfully heady nose of sottobosco and dead leaves. On the palate it's as fresh as fresh veg – massive freshness after an initial impression of prunes. Extremely subtle and only medium weight. JR18, issued June 2018

Ion Irpinia Campi Taurasini Aglianico 2016

Great wine, surely better than expected. But then I think I’d rather a proper taurasi. Trying a touch too hard to approach new age palate. — 4 years ago

Domaine Maume

Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Gorgeous, flinty nose with hint of barnyard. Grippy tannins. Hint of coffee and soy sauce after 3 hours. Almost Valentini Cerasuolo-ish. Imperial Treasure Teochew Ion with Andrew Dutton.

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There I was suggesting that Maume's Mazis-Chambertin 2011 was clearly not the pick from the domaine this vintage and lo and behold, it trumps all in a blind tasting. It has quite an earthy note on the nose with mint-tinged red fruit and black plum unfurling at its own leisurely pace in the glass. Later, this is joined by fennel and rosemary scents, creating an intriguing aromatics profile. The palate is medium-bodied, a touch foursquare on the entry, but with good substance, the texture grainy and quite peppery toward the finish. There is a lot going on in this grand cru and it will be fascinating to see how it develops and if it maintains this stellar quality. RP95, 2011, issued Nov 2014

Reserve Burgenland Blaufränkisch 2016

Wonderful dinner with Alex, Esma, Alex’s parents Andrew and Sylvia and Kris at Mott 32. Started with the char siu and we worried it was not going to be enough food but thanks to Kris’s expert ordering, we were fully satisfied. Slight hiccup with our hairy crab dumping order but we had it and enjoyed it. Everyone loved the fried black cod, pea shoots, and short rib. The wine was light enough to carry a diversity of flavors but with enough flavor to stand ion it’s own. The wine ordering system was amusing (p.6 #4) — 2 years ago

Copperpoint Brewing

A-10 Hop Hog Red IPA

Brilliant and red-amber come in at just-translucent showing slightly piebald broiled beef fat foam and eyebrow-expressive, graphic lacing. Woody, with elm and holly and cherry wood, blood orange and ruby grapefruit too, a peppery, meaty complexity. This beer really reminds me of some British ale that I can’t quite pinpoint. Nuttiness. Shelled pecans and dusty walnut, roasted hazelnut, and cigarette paper. Bitterness ion bits defining turn that smacks of savory, chestnut, dry cigar, weak coffee, cinnamon. Interesting twists here, and low fruit and malt reliance. .
