Blackbird Vineyards

Illustration Proprietary Merlot Blend 2010

Heady. Lusty. Posh wine with a few seductively abrasive nips. So many black currant jam tarts garnished with greens and someone was eating it while writing thrash poetry with a number two pencil nearby. Got it? — 2 years ago

Love the note. I usually don’t randomly throw our winery recommendations, but you should checkout Perliss and Wingspan. The wines are made by Aaron Pott and are exceptional. Anthony Perliss handles his family’s eponymous label, while his sister Tessa oversees their Wingspan label, which includes both a rosé and a red Zinfandel.

@Isaac Pirolo I’m always up for recommendations for good Zin and rosé!

Edition Limitee Cuvee Prestige Pays d'Oc Cabernet Sauvignon 99 Blend

Vintage 2018 | I am learned to be careful with wines and winelabels that pretend to be better than they actually are. This wine shows itself with a lot of qualifications: grand vin, vintage, cuvée prestige, Porte le nr, édition limitée. And I think there is nothing wrong with an honest Pays d’Oc. On the contrary. So I was not surprised to smell a nice spicyness, cedar, and to taste a comforting wine with a nice sweet in the aftertaste. The wine is over oaked in my opinion, still lovely to taste. Present of my brother in law. Paired with Lion’s Head Meatballs and rice. | Wednesday Meatballsday (17) a good effort that does not need to do posh — 5 months ago

That's indeed a lot of qualifications for a single wine. Glad you enjoyed it anyway!

Buccella

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

To ring in my 1,000th Delectable wine review I wanted to open up something particular posh and opulent. Needless to say, this 2009 Buccella is about as perfect as I expected. Sexy fine grain tannins, plush red/black fruits, baking spices, Christmas spice cake, traces of menthol, licorice, creme de cassis, all laced in suave new oak. This is an awesome wine. — 2 years ago

@Ken Z I certainly have. I’m a bit of stickler for stemware so I have a fleet of glassware I like to experiment with for a multitude of wine styles and varietals. I’m a firm believer that the proper glass can help make all the difference.

@Ken Z In addition (meant to say it in my last) I tried the Buccella in a Riedel Cab stem later last night after having initially tried it in the Zalto Burg. The aromatics certainly were different but I found the perfume to be more balanced in the Burg, interestingly enough.

I cant speak to the scent, but I generally find the tannins more pronounced, and the fruit less so when drinking cab from a Burgundy stem, although this probably would not matter as much with a California wine.

Petillant Natural Dabiki White Blend 2017

Israeli pet Nat with dabuki, an indigenous grape in the blend.

Had the 2016 vintage a while ago. Progress is here, this is 2017.
2018 was released but my wine shop still lives in the past...

11.5% ABV

Strong yellow with tiny tiny bubbles 👀

Started lemon-ish but as it got warmer it was more stinky cheese factory with a horse stable next door 👃

Medium body.
High acidity.

Tiny Bubbles attack then funkness with lemon and added grapefruit bitterness 👄

Light and pleasant 🎯 with creaminess lingering.

A very pleasant one!
Made better impression on guests than yesterday's posh old vintage sparkling rose...

Excellent vfm (69 nis).
Better then 2016 vintage. Need to check 2018 now.

paired lovely with bread, butter and stinky cheese plate.
And some hummus, tahini , tomato salsa and jahnun. Great with bold food...
