Point Barre Arbois Pupillin Ploussard 2013

Lucky to try the trousseau and ploussard one after the other. Very different wines the the trousseau light on this feet and this one needing a bit of time in a carafe to show a mix of red berries and spice. Tons of funk than needed to blow off as well. — 6 days ago

Rosso Fresco Red Blend 2017

76% Merlot, 11% Syrah, 8% Blaufrankish, 4% Cab Franc, 1% Teroldego.

My first East Coast red wine. Woot! Fantastic semi-uncomplicated (has some dark twist and turns) fruity and tasty Tuesday night pour. Table wine.

Plum, cherry, rose, hint of soil, vine and leaf (?Franc?) light-medium body, 12% ABV.

Reminds me of some young vine wines from the Escondido-Baja region. Happy to start seeing East Coast wines making their way to the West Coast. This is also my first encounter with Teroldego, which seems to be avoiding my orbit.

Good Job! More please!

Travessia

North Fork of Long Island Merlot 2014

Drinks more like a Cab., depth of body and taste. Barrel aging evident in its depth. Plenty of life left for a 2014 Merlot. Congratulations to a small producer. Keep it up! — 14 days ago

Southold Farm + Cellar

Trust The Pain Lagrein

Thanksgiving dinner in BK, first time ever without the full fam. Bought this at a wine shop in Providence about 18 months ago. 5 years of age has really done this wine well. Gave it a couple hours of air, needs decant (lotsa sediment) Nose: Serrano ham & cranberry, waxy cinnamon candies. Palette: herbaceous, savory & meaty with pleasant tartness. Shrubby woody greenness. Nice bright acidity. Not fruity. lil tobacco in there. — 6 days ago

Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Chardonnay 2016

Very good Chardonnay with vanilla notes and well-balanced set of flavors. I started drinking this after a Walter Scott Chardonnay which is a much better but more expensive wine, but this wine is really well-made and a great value. There is some buttery flavor but it is mild, bad the fruit really comes through. — 6 days ago

Sparkling Pointe

Brut North Fork Champagne Blend 2016

Thanksgiving 2020 Bubbly! Traditional “Champagne Style” Blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Aromas of apples, white flowers, brioche and minerals. Apple, pear and chalk flavors with hints of tropical fruits. Beautifully effervescent (lots of bubbles) with a creamy mousse. Mouth Watering acidity. Delicate, crisp and bright. — 6 days ago

Morgen Long

Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2018

Short notes tonight, post holiday dinner with our best buddy.

Total smoke show! Just a wicked smashing of flint, like non-stop, maybe a lemon snuck in there!

This is new world Meursault!

Castello di Borghese

Pinot Noir 2018

Intense, well-knit red fruit / baking spice, leather, some earth / an elegant, balanced, fully-realized pinot noir from the North Fork—definitely the best I’ve discovered so far. — 17 days ago
