The Foreign Affair

Dream Abbraccio Merlot Blend

I just want to hug this bottle! (See what I did there?) Solid wine, especially since it's from the great white north. Tastes like it's from the motherland... Italy, not Brooklyn. The cork reads 'Dream and the world will conspire to make it so.' Brilliant. — 4 years ago

Burn Cottage

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

The flagship wine from Burn Cottage, a Central Otago, New Zealand producer focused on Pinot Noir. Husband and wife owners Dianne & Marquis Sauvage sought out Ted Lemon of Littorai, and SF Chronicle's winemaker of the year for 2010 (Jon Bonné: "The simple version of Ted Lemon's story: Young American goes to Burgundy. Becomes first American to run a Burgundian wine estate. Comes back and stays true to Pinot's motherland."). Lemon oversaw the planting of the vineyards, along with all aspects of vineyard management and winemaking, chief of which being Biodynamic from inception. The label is a derivative of a 1795 fairy tale called “The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily” which represents the ideal intersection of people and the land reflected in Biodynamics. Black cherry, citrus, and lavender pastille, with some secondary loam and herbs. — 3 years ago

@Shay Aldriedge @Eric S I had seen this a couple times and when I found out that Ted Lemon was behind it, I had to try. The label really makes me want to like this more than I do, but it is very good.

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2012

Warming up the palette for the trip to the motherland this week...more fruit than savory but man, without the shipping costs, the price is right #qprpiemonte — 4 years ago

Pelletiere-Luna Matta Vineyards Nebbiolo 2015

Well damn, this is a pretty convincing impression of the the paisano wines from the motherland. Has the pure cherry fruit and bloody/iron-tinged earth thing going on, as well as some dried floral character. Nice ripeness and grip, maybe only lacking a bit of acid (compared to Piedmont or Tuscany) but this was a pretty all-star pairing with a reverse-seared NY strip frites. Decanted for an hour or two, threw a ton of sediment and floaters. Bravo to Mr. Harrington. — a year ago

La Côte aux Enfants Coteaux Champenois Pinot Noir 2012

This was harder to source, but what a treat! I've become obsessed with Coteaux Champenoise after my trip to the motherland of Champagne and ever since has been trying to get my hands on all Coteaux that are being imported to tr states. Cold cold pinot noir with immense minerality and concentrated cranberry and red cherry aromas. So good! — 4 years ago
