Finally made my Quarantine Ragu for bae. Experimented with Brussels sprouts today and ended making a peach and red pepper dressing with an Aleppo pepper sauce. Not too shabby.
Grassy, the freshness of raw parsley and chives.
Primary note of pears. Solid brightness and sweetness flirt with each other at the right levels.
Rewatching La La Land with bae, and it’s just as good the second time around. — 2 years ago
Lovely wine that needs time to breathe before drinking. Open 1-2 days before you want to imbibe. — 5 years ago
Such incredible Eola-Amity Hills Riesling. Bill has some serious talent. Such finesse, nimbleness, and purity coexisting with dense concentration. Perfect balance of RS in this homage to the Spätlese Prädikatswein Rieslings of Germany. Honestly rivals some pretty stellar German examples, IMO. Pours a pale to medium (-) intensity straw hue. Medium (+) concentration of aromatics of ripe white peach, pure wet slate minerality, Thai basil, cardamom, a slight sesame oil savoriness, some slight lees influence, and jasmine and honeysuckle floral notes. On the palate, there's more ripe stone fruit, an extra jolt of pure slate mineral freshness, cardamom, honeycomb, and jasmine floral tones. High acid, moderate RS (~35g/l), light to medium (-) body with great supple texture from lees and RS. Alcohol is decently low and refreshing at 10%. Impeccable balance, great length and complexity. Seriously killer stuff. — 5 years ago

Alsace in style. Great mid palette and strong finish — 5 years ago
Really wonderful, full off dry Riesling. Roasted pineapple and spice flavors, a honey-like sweetness and great acidity, and a sort of nutty or seedy quality I can't put my finger on. — 5 years ago
