Saint Joseph Marsanne Roussanne 2015

White pepper, citrus rind, pineapple, wildflower honey on the nose. Palate concentration is very good with good acid and minerality. Almost great. Still, to my palate this succumbs to the ripeness of the vintage on the finish… a little cloying. — 16 hours ago

Sainte-Épine Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

This needed air to really reveal itself. I should have decanted. I waited a day to try again and was rewarded. Complex and beautiful. Cured meats, black fruit, spice, licorice, limestone, plus a finish that just lingers. I am guessing this will improve with a couple more years of age. — 13 days ago

La Ferme des Sept Lunes Syrah 2020

Early greedy syrah. Superbe mesmerising nose made of floral fragrances, violette flower forward, touch of pepper. A primeur wine full of charm.

Syrah primeur, gourmande. Superbe nez enivrant sur des fragrances florales violette en avant, touche poivrée. Vin primeur plein de charme.

Beeswax baby on top of a soil and petrol nose.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

The legendary 07 vintage. Wine candy with & after Wagyu ribcap.

It’s on its 3-5 year peak cycle.

Candied & just a touch stewed; blackberries, blueberries, dry, dark cherries, creamy raspberries, bramble, pine syrup sap, melted caramel w/ nuts, dark chocolate, mocha powder, eucalyptus, mint, sage, bay leaf, splash of oregano, dark spice w/ some mid heat, dry top soil, rich forest floor, fresh & withering dark florals, lavender, violets, beautiful acidity with fine length, balance & elegantly polished.

Yeah, the zucchini & sugar snaps peas are cut from my garden the end of this week. If you haven’t had sugar snaps peas out of the garden, you are missing veggie candy. Both crazy good w/ the snap peas taking the tape.

Clos des Chênes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2002

Nose has dried cranberry, ripe cherry, red currant jelly, dried roses and old oak bark

Palate has dried tart cherry, dried cranberries, chalk dust, over-ripe strawberry with medium, but fine tannins. Doing quite well tonight; Slow oxidation for 2H then decanted 3H.

Pre-birthday dinner for our dear COVID bubble friend; we've only allowed one of our close friends into the house for almost the past year, tonight we're celebrating that he's one year older than me. 😉
