X Saxa Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Aligote 2020

Very light lemon yellow color. Tight and shy on first sniff….then high bright lemon/ lime and tart Granny Smith aromas. Crisp, mineral, unoaked, light in weight, a hint reductive initially; then opening up with zingy acidity that tiptoes across the palate. The wine opens beautifully as it warms and works well with yellowfin crudo and Chicken breast Romesco. The low ABV and lively acid make for a long, interesting finish. By far my best Aligote ever. — 6 days ago

Bates Ranch Vineyard Rosé of Grenache 2021

Lovely medium pink in the glass…cranberry, tart pie cherry, watermelon notes but wonderfully dry and savory with hints of rosemary and mint. Leaning well towards the dry and savory side, this wine rocks with food (on this occasion very good quality Indian). Who would match Grenache rose with Lamb Rogan Josh? But it works so well and the long, savory finish is memorable. I positively love wines from Santa Cruz Mountain … this tiny winery rocks it with Chardonnay, Cabernet, and Rose. I’m thinking I should keep this on the downlow… Nevermind…nothing to see here. — a month ago

Vare Vineyard Ribolla Gialla 2020

Vintage after vintage… I love this wine… crisp, low ABV, always acid-driven… wonderful floral notes… but real acid grip to drive the weight on the palate snd the amazing long tart peachy finish. This wine works so well with all types of Mediterranean cuisine… tonight with simple Greek lemon chicken and Beets with heaps of garlic driven Skordalia. Opa! — a month ago

Spätburgunder 2016

With 6y of age this has nicely mellow and shows savoury, moist undergrowth, fresh mushrooms, shy dark fruit,
On the palate this is really polished & peaking. Light bodied, the tannins polished, juicy, perfectly integrated. Nice purity and precision. Great flow & good length. Wild strawberries, wet moss, a hint of cream. So food friendly, works amazingly week with Cantonese food.
Really good stuff!

9.0

Very rare grape - native to Cyprus. On the nose, almonds candy and honeysuckle. Wet rocks. In the mouth dense and thick, strong minerality and broad acidity. The age shows with some distinct secondary characteristics. Quite good and interesting. Of interest - this winery only works with native Cypriot varieties. — a month ago

Eastside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2017

Absolutely delicious and hitting at perfection. A nose of raspberry, plum and ripe rich fruits, hints of smoking rich wood, with a menthol like undertones, this wine is special. Strawberry, plum, mint, bubble gum, the works with a fresh, chalky and somehow powdery finish that lingers long after the first sip and silky smoooth tannins that leave the mouth feeling somehow both cool and fresh. — 15 days ago

Cuvée Les Equinces Bourgogne White Blend 2017

9.4

Lovely nose of lemon pepper, mild oak, superb expressive minerals and salt. Herbs as well. So clean and elegant. Refined. Chewy and dense but also refined with an elegant sweetness that is more wood and sweet ripe apples but finishes with a bit of opulence and some terrific cleansing acidity. So well made you are blown away that is is Bourgogne. Wonderful loose texture and just perfect balance. Opulence works in this wine’s favor. Such a long finish. Clean and elite winemaking. — a month ago

Domaine Jean-Claude Marsanne

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2018

2018 vintage. Initial nose with a trace fecal component that blew off 2-3 mins after opening. Heavy metal body. Nose reformed to feature grounding/hot Szechuan pepper, traces of fresh ginger, heaps of bramble fruit and watercress. Lengthy, astringent, iodine-laced and plummy. chocolate, kirschy finish. Almost imperceptible cedar and tobacco hovering about that may gain more prominence in the coming years but for now, they’re on the back burner. Sounds totally disjointed and wild but it works. Last tasted 4.8.22. — a month ago
