Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 1980

Well that was delightful. Wish I hadn’t have cooked with the other half of the bottle....

Opened a lesser bottle I usually like after and seems like I can’t taste it at all...

Altum Villare Brut Champagne 2010

Tastes like a vintage, is awesome. But have had other vintages of similar age with equal taste at half the price, just much harder to find cause of smaller houses. — a month ago

Half of us loved this, the other half not so much. Count me in the first group. Pours a deep yellow, a bit cloudy. Quite rich yet also tense and tight, lemon focused with some yeasty grip. Some orchard fruit shows with time. This has some heft, with a grippy, yeasty finish. Needed a decant. Super complex. Striking and unique. Need more... — a month ago

Really surprised here. Two hours in and this is singing. This is my favorite single vineyard from SG so far. Layered and expressive, but not overblown. Some of their other single vineyard wines have been overly restrained, sometimes muddy - I feel.

Nose is berry, light cigar box. Palate is cherry cola, Hershey chocolate, molasses, spicy oak, and sparkling tannins throughout that lead to grippy finish. Better half helped with some of the descriptions there.
93-94 really good vino. Interesting 🧐 I’m trying to figure out fruit and can’t. Kind of similar to other SG single vineyards.
Side note. Listening to Beatles tonight and loving the experience. Cheers!

@Ron R I joined SG club from an online offer. I had their Napa cab before and thought some vintages were pretty good for the price. Their location is amazing so I thought it was worth a shot. This was offered as part of their club. Other than this, I haven’t been blown away by quality. To be honest I wasn’t going to continue. This wine is pretty great. I need to understand more about location and vineyard.

Thanks, @Paul K. Yes, I agree with your thoughts. I’ve had some good wines from here, but it tends to be a feast or famine.

Rosé Champagne Pinot Noir

A delicate copper color with a more than adequate amount of minuscule bubbles. It’s very lively with the creaminess coming later. The nose is subdued at first showing red cherries and yeast but after around half an hour you’ll start to get fresh roses and tangerine. Composed of Grand Cru grapes from Verzenay, the blend is 65/35 PN/CH with 15% of the Pinot coming from still wine.

The longer you spend with this sexy minx of a champagne, the more you’ll fall in love. Still displaying those strong Pinot characteristics hours later, it has settled into a state of approachable elegance. That’s what using up to 60% reserve wines will do for you. A multitude of red berries and tasty pastries absolutely sing. Exquisite minerality runs throughout. A long finish with more citrus and acid. Comparing this to other, larger Champagne houses does a disservice because this easily blows them away.
