Crianza Tempranillo

Reminds me of the first Ribera del Duero I tasted. It has spice and fruit. The tannins are soft but it has structure. The finish is not long. — 8 months ago

Stone Hill Winery

Chambourcin 2017

Taking a cue from @Severn Goodwin I’m drinking some MO wine, which is made just a few hours from where I live. I had never had anything by Stone Hill prior to this, assuming it wasn’t very good, but I was wrong. This is a great light bodied red and was great with a slight chill. Black and blue fruits, forest floor, and a mineral streak combine with medium + acid and light tannins for an easy drinking, dry, fresh red. I bought a few of this producer’s wines and look forward to trying the others. A pleasant surprise! — a year ago

Nice, not had this one yet. Last time I had a Chambourcin it was from PA.


Alma Riesling Amphora 2018

Wow. What a bouquet. Even surrounded by the fragrance of lilies, I can just smell the essence of lavender, honey, meadowy grass, slight slight saffron. Wonderful.

This is a sipping wine. Almost a shame to waste it on poker night, since I won’t be able to give it, its full attention.

Slight bubbles, but I wouldn’t really want anymore. The acidity hits its note right on cue, balancing nicely with its off-dry quality. Definitely a bit of that petrol afternote. It works here, though, playing nicely off the backdrop of the after-the-rain dewy fields and mango/lavender note.

A symphony in the forest.

Terre de Maimbray Sancerre Pinot Noir Rosé 2021

🎸Just what I needed 🎸 (cue The Cars)

Sometimes a wine just hits the spot. Elegant and refreshing. Smells like fresh nectarine and limestone. Tastes like chalk and stones with hints of barely ripe red fruit (strawberry, watermelon). Acid for days. Divine with cucumber salad.

That’s a lot of dressing, is it KETO friendly?

@Paul T- Huntington Beach ha. the Tzisziki sauce is the best part & probably not KETO friendly, but few good things are.

Herdade do Mouchão

Vinho Regional Alicante Bouschet 2011

Everything about this wine screams uncool in our industry in the present era: high alcohol (14%), heavy extraction, generous use of new oak (presumably), ripe + chewy tannins, flavors that shout rather than whisper and high praise from Robert Parker (cue Elaine or Carlton Banks’ dance moves). Maybe it’s my 90’s nostalgia or maybe I’ve been drinking too much vintage port these days 🤷🏻‍♀️ but it all works beautifully here: intense aromas of licorice, pepper, cedar, black plum, wet tar, dried tobacco, cranberries, cassis, dried violets. And this is only the beginning... A blast of macerated red and black berries on the palate, held together by a solid acid backbone, followed by a long finish laced with black olive, dried tobacco, mocha and mineral. Hedonistic. Three cheers for Alicante Bouschet! — 3 years ago

👏 buttoned up Carlton drinking vintage port! Can’t think of a more stuffy formal wine.
