La Sirena

Amador County Rosato 2019

La Sirena Rosato 2019: Medium-light bodied. Well balanced. Light acidity. Nice minerality. Strawberry & citrus flavors with a bright & clean finish. Made from Primitivo grapes sourced from Amador County in the foothills of California, this is the perfect “fun to drink” or “easy to love” rosé wine. Let’s not forget this rosé comes from the talented winemaking skills of Heidi Peterson Barrett 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 All in all, a perfect selection as schools out & summer’s here! Let the summer camps & play dates begin! Make it a unique & magical day! Cheers ☀️🧜‍♀️🍷 — 15 days ago

Upper Hemel en Aarde Valley Chardonnay 2015

9.3

We are stopping for a glass at the Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town after a day touring the nicer parts of coastal Cape Town as shown in the photos. It’s beautiful but, can’t wait to get to Stellenbosch tomorrow.

Newton Johnson is one of good SA producers in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley in Hermanus, which is SE about an hour and forty minutes from Cape Town.

The nose reminds me of Sonoma Chardonnay without being hammered by new oak. Green apple, lime edging towards candy, pineapple, green melon, blended tropical fruit mix, white peach, butter but, not overdone, honeysuckle, light herbaceous notes, touch of saline, beautiful soft chalkiness, limestone minerals, fruit blossoms, yellow lilies & spring flowers.

The body is full, heavy and waxy. It’s rich. It also has a sense of tannins. The fruits are nicely ripened. Green apple, lime edging towards candy, pineapple, green melon, blended tropical fruit mix, white peach, vanilla, butter but, not overdone, honeysuckle, light herbaceous notes, touch of saline, beautiful soft chalkiness, palate penetrating volcanic minerals, limestone, some flinty notes, fruit blossoms, yellow lilies & spring flowers. The acidity is quite perfect. The finish is the definition of; rich, lush, elegant and well balanced. It’s persists for two to three minutes. Really nice! Also, appreciate the 13% ABV.

I heard that was a beautiful place!

Fantinel

Extra Dry Prosecco

This wine makes pretty bubbles which don’t last too long, so enjoy them while they are here. The very pale sparkler offers a nose which carries floral notes along with citrus and minerals. The palate is very dry and loaded with minerality and lemon-lime fruit flavors. It comes off more like a “serious” sparkling wine than a “fun” Prosecco, but there is plenty there to please both camps. — 2 months ago

Long Haul Red Mountain Merlot Blend 2015

Beautiful, if young. Classic right bank rendition that has one foot in both camps. Polished, but clearly red fruit Merlot driven. — 5 years ago

Gran Reserva de la Familia Brut Nature Cava Macabeo-Xarel-lo-Parellada

Actually one of the really good tasting champagnes that isn’t too dry or sweet. Great combo of both. Recommended by guy at Cambridge Wine and Spirits. — 6 months ago

Pax Mahle Wines

Griffin's Lair Sonoma Coast Syrah 2004

14.8% alc. 446 cases produced.

From the good ol' (gutsy) days of Pax.
There's always been a lot of talk about IPOB vs. Big/Bold and I've never really understood it....

My own cellar is quite "deep" and able to fit different moods.

This specific wine is high alc, ripe while well balanced and just tasting amazing at age 12...so why choose to be only in one of the camps?
