Hundred Acre Vineyard

Kayli Morgan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

The deep garnet colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard gives up a beautiful savory/meatiness with a core of blackcurrant cordial, red currant jelly, Black Forest cake and chargrill with touches of Indian spices, star anise, cast iron pan and mossy bark with a waft of yeast extract. The palate is full-bodied with a beautiful fine-grained texture and wonderful harmony even at this relatively youthful stage, with loads of layers and a perfumed finish. @Tiffani Thiessen @Paul T- Huntington Beach — 2 days ago

Balcombe Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2018

Generous pinot fruited nose. Herbal, perfumed. On the palate sweet, delicate red fruit layer over deep acid and tannins. Really pretty if not top level clarity. — 11 hours ago

Nackenheim Trocken Riesling 2020

9.4

Nose is slamming. Gorgeous and pure with honeyed apricots and ginger. Even a hint of herbals. Maybe sage? Insane spices. This is wide open. So good. Tree bark, orange rind, so much complexity. Gorgeous, juicy, elegant and wide open. Crystalline purity and texture. This is awesome. Pink grapefruit and blackberries. Tart but has insane balance. Fruit cake on the nose. Aggressive but caressing minerality. Not punishing at all. Really wonderful. I’m not sure why this isn’t a 9.5. — 7 days ago

Wow. The KG “Molsheim.” Just a stunning nose of lime zest, white pepper, herbs, some complex citrus, herbs again but more pronounced. Just awesome palate. Amazing texture and grace. Such amazing spread on the palate. Nose now getting gingerbread, spice, pound cake, but the ginger is out of hand. Stunning. Deep, ripe, complex and concentrated. Seems a bit closed though initially and I know it has more to say. Finish is long and clings to the palate. Great acidity and it is caressing. Glorious purity and depth — 7 days ago

Vigna'ngena Vermentino Di Gallura 2020

A superbly-crafted multi-layered Vermentino with great intensity and striking character. Slightly bracing stone fruit, balanced by a second layer of subtle tropical notes and followed by very herbaceous finish. Mint, ginger and white pepper linger very persistently. Great tension of firm minerality and rounded mid palate. This is just about the finest expression of Vermentino I’ve had. Not the greatest value at $40, so I reserve my recommendations for serious lovers of this variety and of more esoteric Mediterranean whites. — 18 days ago

Champans Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2019

Lyle Fass
9.6

Huge ebullient nose of black and red cherries. Gorgeous spice, blackberry and licorice. Lovely Stoney minerality. So Volnay. Stunningly sweet fruit. Unreal purity and freshness and so so young. Sappy and dense but also light on its feet. Raspberry cake, raspberry coulis. Good extract, purity and freshness but as this is a barrel sample it’s maybe lost a little bit. Nose is showing huge minerality and earthiness. Palate is more engaging with air. It’s more precise and juicy. Very gamey. Nose is super sick now with air. Cherry liquor. Very fresh. Palate is elegant and fresh. This is a wine for laying down. So much potential. — 7 days ago
