Lady Of The Mandrake

Zeitgeist Cellars

Sleeping Lady Vineyard Cabernet Franc

Dark ruby color with a nose of blackberries, cassis, potpourri, a touch of strawberries, leather, vanilla, and an interesting sea air freshness. Full-bodied wine with amazing fruit. The tannins are definitely there, but not so overwhelming as to close the wine and kill the fruit. Finish is long and pleasant at over a minute. This is my type of wine! Celebrating my 20th wedding anniversary with this. Couldn’t have made a better choice. — 7 days ago

Grand Cru Brut Champagne Blend

Popped and poured after the Gonet-Medeville BdN 1er. This is also mostly Pinot Noir however with 20% Chardonnay. Comparatively, this pours a more pale color, again with a persistent mousse. Aromas of white flowers (specifically citrus blossom), white peach, and ever so lightly toasted brioche. On the palate, white peach, pink lady apple, lemon and minerals. Good acid. Long finish. Lovely texture. This came across as a noticeably more rich, refined, and elegant Champagne and it made a beautiful pairing with my selection of Mussels Dijonnaise. Disgorged August 21, 2018

Lovely Sauvignon Blanc. More mineral than fruit, with a nice lemony tartness. Well made and interesting. — 4 days ago

Marchesi Antinori

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2007

This is a “Tig” in it’s prime, wel aged and a real charmeur! De lady of this house loved it and that’s always a good sign. Nice developed tannins with some silky chocolate and mokka, dark ripe forest fruit and some classic dried herbs like rosemary and thyme. You can easily drink a bottle but I keep a half for later. — 3 months ago

What a lucky man I am - married to this beautiful lady for 30 years - this wine was a gift from my great friend @David L

Such an amazing wine - 30 years old and I promise this wine could go another 30 years

Incredible structure - color was a deep garnet - I know that sounds crazy but it was / tannins were silky and refined - the acidity and weight was medium and really balanced with tertiary notes all over it / just say them and they were present - one of most special Napa wine ever

Thank you again

Lady May Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2013

Olive tapenade and star anise on the nose. Nicely balanced, medium-bodied. Not a ton of fruit, but maybe I'm just too accustomed to Napa cabs. Recommend decanting as there was some sediment. — 4 months ago
