Keep Wines

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

For me it feels like it is closed. At least it is withholding a lot what was there a few years ago. I will keep other bottles. — 3 days ago

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

Filled with a panoply of white fruit flavors. The flavors just keep changing from start to finish. A great wine. — 7 days ago

St. Bernardus Brouwerij

Watou Abt 12 Belgian Abbey Ale

ESF
9.6

Just decadent, rich intense, chocolate malt, nutty caramel, dulce de leche, s’mores, etc. have to keep this away from kids. Hi-octane but ALC doesn’t show - extremely well done w/certain subtle acidic/yeasty tang which offsets all sweet notes... we have glasses for this specific beer which enhances the experience. — 13 days ago

Hofer Vineyard Grenache 2020

I finally found a delicious grenache rose for summer. I just hope my wine shop can keep it in stock! — 2 months ago

Weingut Friedrich Becker

Becker Family Pinot Gris 2018

Skin contact Pinot Gris from the Pfalz. First for me, and one of the best skin contact whites I have ever had. Orange blossoms, tangerine, pear, peach, and white tea. Wonderful round structure that has enough acid to keep it interesting, plus a very subtle tannic grip. Excellent bottle. — 10 days ago

Booker Vineyard

Vertigo Red Blend 2010

This is why I keep a wine cellar. Opening these aged beauties is such a treat. Silky smooth, concentrated fruit. Fantastic. — 10 days ago

Prosper Maufoux

Domaine Vigne Au Roy Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir 2017

Lead, canned cranberry on the nose. Chalk, blueberry, moss. A hint of funk that will age well. Light mineral on the palate. At first seems simple, but you keep going back for more and getting more. Green raspberry. Bourbon-orange. — 14 days ago

Château Grandis

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1997

9.1

So, the owner of K&L Wine Merchants - Clyde Beffa has made a living finding good 1997 Bordeaux’s after the fact in a difficult vintage. It is these kinds of buys ($17.99) that have keep me from opening other more prestigious wines too early in my early years of collecting. He still bats 1000.

If you always open your wines too early, let this be an opportunity to try wines on their longer evolution. You won’t be sorry.

Snap peas & zucchini from the garden this week.

Excellent with the rib covers steak.

You simply cannot equate a 9.1 24 years old Bordeaux to a 9.1 Bordeaux to a young one. The complexity, integration & nuances take precedent. Not a fair race.
