Freestone Vineyards Pinot Noir 2018

Sourced mostly from estate grown vineyards, this bright ruby wine has aromas of red fruits and sweet spices. On the palate flavors of cherry, plum and raspberry with underlying crispness, adding in some citrus and vanilla, rich in the mouth. Fine tannins, long finish, well balanced complex ending. Very Nice! — 16 days ago

"Les Oliviers" Saint-Joseph Marsanne-Roussanne Blend 2016

Stupendous, maybe the best Rhône white I’ve ever had. Pale gold, smells like tiny white spring blossoms, baked apple and Meyer lemon. Viscous, oily mouthfeel with more lemon and flowers, peaches, melon, honey, tea and marzipan, a little smoky on the back, somehow maintains great freshness through all of that. The Gonon St Joseph rouge is probably overrated at this point (I wouldn’t know, it’s been a while and it’s too expensive) but this might be underrated — a day ago

WOTN - I was impressed - besides always being a crowd pleaser this wine always acts like the postman and always delivers

1 hour decant - was not planning to open but we drank the other bottles like thirsty sailors after 90 days on the boat - color has not changed - the smell has gotten even better - the finish was spot on and the taste was impeccable- remarkable- memorable- a true stunner - blue fruits dancing with black and reds fruits - tobacco cassis sweetness from caramel- tamed but striking how this baby keeps growing - drink now if you want but I will not try again for 5 years or more - this Napa cult classic will last 10 years plus and seems to find a way to get better - bravo

Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1981

Definitely showing it’s age but still lively after 39 years! Fruits were muted but loads of green pepper and mint. — 23 days ago

9.3

A great vintage to drink now. Nose of olive, pepper, grilled meats, floral, granite and red berry fruit. Showing so well. Palate is easy like Sunday morning. Silky and ripe wirh outstanding balance and purity. Loads of berry fruit and ample freshness. So pure and sappy. Peppery finish and lovey granite and earth tones. No rush but this is in a great place now.

After air, more aromatic with blackberry, violets, olive and game, herbs, granite. So good. 9.2 to 9.3. Gains more elegance on the palate and really brings the fruit and refined tannin.

Innisfree Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Je m’attendais à un bombe sucré et sans intérêt. Mais non, pas trop d’élevage, pas trop sucré, les quelques années en cabe lui ont fait grand bien. Beau fruits, tannins présent sans être désagréable. Finale moyenne. — 21 days ago

Nice partner to lamb shank, though a young and fresh pairing for my tastes. — 5 days ago

La Combe Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017

@Delectable this is the Bourgogne rouge. Although it’s styled in the way of the blanc they are known for. Crackling with energy bouncing down the entire length of the palate. The light but persistent fruit is present but in a supporting role. — 7 days ago
