Domaine Xavier Besson

Le Petit Prétan Givry 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Zwart rijp fruit in de neus met op de achtergrond wat potgrond. Fluweelzachte smaak van bramen en zoetzure rode bessen. Mooie zuren en best aanwezige tannines. Lange fruitige afdronk met een vleugje groene kruiden en kaneel. Lovely! — 4 years ago

That is pretty damn sensational. I have never rode up Mount Ventoux. But now I have at least drank the wines of the surrounding vineyards. Thanks for the taste famalie Brunier. — 4 years ago

Sine Qua Non

The Hoodoo Man Chardonnay Blend 2006

2006 Sine Qua Non "The Hoodoo Man" White Blend
39% Roussanne, 31% Viognier and 30% Chardonnay. 15.8% alcohol. “There ain’t a horse that can’t be rode, there ain’t a man that can’t be throw’d” Yet another of my Sine Qua Non guilty pleasures. Similar to the 2009 “The Thrill Of Stamp Collecting” and the 2011 “Patine,” this is one of those Sine Qua Non wines that I find to be a might more compelling than the expert reviews. I can’t quite put my finger on exactly why, but this one has always sort of tickled my fancy, and never fails to please. Ive always been rather fond of the perhaps Grant Wood, American Gothic inspired label. Now, some 12 years down the road, as with most of Manfred’s whites, the extra cellar time has just added nuance to this sexy effort. Lustrous, radiant gold in the stem, with a stunning bouquet of smoky, nutty peach cobbler with hints of white flowers lurking in the background. Tropical fruits and orange marmalade with a toasty, butterscotchy finish of substantial length. Absolutely wonderful acidity. Unctuous, oily texture that I treasure. Powerful and intense. Great balance. I like to taste great whites slightly warmer than cellar temperature, but I would say this one just got better and better with more air and as it warmed. Just beautiful. “Salud, chindon Mr. Krankl!”

Jonata Winery

Todos Santa Ynez Valley Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

This bottle rode out to California with me a few years back and then flew back with me on Friday. The 2006 Todos from Jonata is a blend of 39% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Sangiovese, and the rest Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Viognier. It’s an ideal match for Texas BBQ with its rich fruit, but bone dry finish, and a mix of herbs and spices in between. — 4 years ago

@TheSkip LOL @Isaac Pirolo yet another great photo puts mine to shame - had the ‘12 Todos last night - 2x the syrah in that one. Nice note!

@TheSkip In some respects, I understand where you’re coming from, and this was probably just such the perfect wine for it that I had to mention. Also Texas BBQ has less sweetness to it, probably making it a little easier to pair than some of the more Deep South styles. And thanks @Kirk Feyereisen it’s all in the lights.
