Bought this knowing nothing about the wine on recommendation of my Delectable friend Anthony Lombardi, whom I have actually never met (one of the many things I love about this app). My initial reaction to the color and nose was WTF, not having any experience with these wines, but then I got it. Orange rind, over ripe peach, nectarine, apricot, orangina, capers, lemons, spice, sand, bunch of other stuff, all coming from a cloudy, orangish, smoky liquid that resembled what I understood to be wine, and I can’t say there was a finish because I kept tasting it long after it was done. Oh and it changed a lot over several hours. Felt archaic, organic, creative, weird, and natural. Thanks Anthony. — 2 months ago
Piggybacking on @Anthony Lombardi ‘s music/wine combinations, this Pfalz Riesling is gorgeous, a perfect accompaniment to ghosht kari, along with Sade’s masterpiece song suite Love Deluxe. White peach, bracing acidity, petrol, salinity, extraordinarily bright golden hue...amazing QPR. — 3 years ago
My favorite Sancerre in a long while. Pear. Bright. Mineral. Middle mouth feel. Both you and Liz liked this quite a bit. — 2 months ago
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay.
Dosage = 6 g/l
Initially a bit muted on the palate but opens up nicely with some air.
Not really a bargain at $40 which I guess is why you can now find it at Grocery Outlet (Napa) for $17.99.
@Anthony Lombardi Any association? 😁 — 2 years ago
To borrow a page from @Anthony Lombardi postings, today Eddie Money passed away @ 70 years of age. Too soon!
So many childhood memories to his music. Was he the GOAT of Rock N Roll? Not exactly. But, he left his mark none the less. I find it’s memories that make music & wine greater.
So Eddie took his “Ticket to Paradise” and got himself “Home Tonight!” For all the great music and memories, I raise a glass of this appropriately choicen Champagne because of its bottling designation and say, cheers to Eddie Money. RIP Eddie. 💰 🎷 🎸 🎶🥂 — a year ago
Mencia is still unusual territory to me! But I would like to play more on its playground. @Anthony Lombardi I think you recommended this one! It hit my nose with leather but over the next hour or so unfolded: I got blackberries and flowers and dried savory herbs and then the green pepper came out to play, but just a bit. Mild in the acid, alcohol and body but still interesting. I would like to explore more Mencia! — 3 years ago
