Howard Park

Great Southern Riesling 2009

Aromatics of Talc, white flowers a little peach and grapefruit. On the palate citrus and peach with diminishing acid. Just a fabulous mature Riesling with just a hint of petro chemical developing in the form of paraffin. It stamps the Great Southern in Western Australia as one of the premium Riesling districts in Australia. One of the 1001 wines and deserves to be. James Halliday wrote “year in, year out, one of Australia’s best Rieslings”. — 2 years ago

Château de Fargues

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2006

Initial aromas of apricot and a petro chemical smell (in a good way) and orange peel. Dubbed somewhat cruelly “Poor mans d’Yquem”. A delicious Sauternes from a producer who does not get a lot of publicity. With time it opened up with a palate of profound intensity showing Apricots, Cumquat jam, burnt toffee, and barley sugar. One of the 1001 wines to drink before you die. — 3 years ago

Barrel X Saar Riesling 2014


Last of three bottles for Leila’s friends Deb/Evan who have such EtOH tolerance and desire! 7/11/22 late after dinner drink. A classic Riesling nose of slate petro white fruits goodness with complex acidic balance and long finish. Too bad I only had a taste. May be only bottle. — a year ago

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

15’ Château Pepe Clement. Should’ve decanted this for sometime. 15 needs a few more years in bottle. That being said… Petro soon opens up to this magnificent bottling. Orange blossom, pineapple, Honeysuckle. Zesty acidity. All spring out of the glass. — 2 years ago

Smith Madrone

Estate Bottled Napa Valley Riesling 2014


Surprised by the quality and varietal signatures of this NAPA Riesling! Could easily confuse it for a good dry German Riesling. That oily petro white stone flowers and complexity carrying over to a good balanced palate and finish. Impressed. — 3 years ago


Garuma Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Lime , grapefruit & guava fruit dominate this wine. Splash of watermelon & petro , wrapped in light acidity. Lingering citrusy finish. Fantastic! Edit- Don’t know if SB would’ve been my first guess blind🤷🏻‍♂️ — 5 years ago
