Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2017

The unicorn Rosé from Valentini! I’m not really a fan of still Rosé generally, other than Prieure Roch, Lillian and now this one! Deep, intense and complex with wonderful texture and density. Some reduction. Crushed cherries, blood orange, red roses, smoked herbs and wet stones. Finishes with very good length, precision and energy. — 10 months ago

White Hawk Vineyard Syrah 2016

This is the gold series #5 White Hawk. Instead of combining White Hawk and Bien Nacido like in the past they decided to make single vineyard bottling of White Hawk and Bien Nacido. It was pretty tight even with some air and more southern Rhône in style than the Bien Nacido. This wine is going to be great with some time. — 2 years ago

La Paciencia Vineyard Grenache 2013

Shay A

My contribution for a massive Grenache theme wine tasting (being as socially distanced as possible). This was alongside Cayuse God Only Knows, a 2011 No Girls Grenache, SQN Female, Saxum Terry Hogue, Lillian Grenache, 06 and 07 Beaucastel, and others.

Broken record, I know, but these wines are insanely delicious and so well crafted. Very much in the “love it or hate it” style, as typical with Cayuse wines. Much more spice and herbal lift here compared to the 2011. Stemmy, black peppercorn dusted rhubarb, olive, and smoked cherry jerky aromatics. Vibrant, almost nervy, on the palate with beautiful acidity. On the palate, it’s a back and forth between saline, iron driven savory notes and underripe fleshy red fruits. Compared to their Syrah, this is always a bit lighter and more bright. Seems to be drinking at peak.

@Joseph Barsky : There were so many it was hard to focus on them all, but I did write down the following: 2016 Lillian! So much lifted fruit in an elegant profile. Reminded me of Andremily’s Syrah. 2011 God Only Knows showed more depth than the 2011 No Girls. 2013 Saxum Terry Hogue was VERY good...lots of spice and grilled dark fruits. 2013 SQN Female was hedonistic...all encompassing style. 2006 Chateau de Beaucastel was nowhere near as good as the 2007.

California Roussanne 2014

Also from a number of days ago. The worst thing about this wine is that it was our last one. Another awesome wine from Maggie Harrison...and it’s drinking perfectly right now. — 9 months ago

Antikythera Pinot Noir 2014

Antica Terra and Lillian wine event

This was probably my favorite Pinot of the evening. I do think it will even get better.
