Golan Heights Winery

Yarden Galilee Chardonnay 2017

In my quest to compare old v new world kicking it off with olld world. I was worried this would be an oak bomb based on some previous vintages but there is restraint here. Golden vanilla and somehow green on the nose. The palate is bordering on rich but not. Cool climate fun that is balanced by baking spice and sass. I like this. If you want kosher for Passover (albeit not mevushal) this is for you. I’m neither of those things but finding it a pleasant Chard that flirts with oak just enough to keep enjoying. — 3 years ago

Menuts

Bordeaux Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Nose is floral with violets and a bit of mineral oil/camphor. Flavors are smooth and balanced. Some juicy fruit of the bramble. Also classic cassis. Bitter finish completes the French Bordeaux-ness. A nice deep red with some sass. — 4 years ago

Ochota Barrels

a forest Pinot Noir 2017

I’m a big huge mega fan of Ochota. This wine has attitude and sass and carries it all off like...I don’t know maybe it’s the “the forest” name but it is like if goth-punk-pop went royal. All the red things: cherry compote rhubarb stew and some cracked peppercorn and dried branches and bramble and a texture of earth. Love it. — 2 years ago

@Ellen Clifford Interesting story a few years the Rolling Stones visited Ochota Barrels from Adelaide. As Taras Ochota tells the story 3 black 7 series BMWs came up his driveway. They stayed for lunch and had a singalong on his old piano. I

@Bob McDonald amazing! That sounds about right...

Umberto Cesari

Liano Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon

Bought in Bologne. Very smooth medium body wine. It’s non offensive and has body.
If you’re looking for a red wine with sass, this may not be for you. This is like meeting someone new for the first time, and you like them immediately and have good conversation with and they are nice but they don’t make you laugh out loud or have characteristics that are distinctive. Like I said no offensive, but robust enough that goes with most things.

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Clos des Myglands Mercurey 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Quaranwine if the day. Looks like I may have been exposed so expect ever so many quaranwines. Ps I feel great but I am doing my part and chilling indoors next two weeks. If I don’t die from lack of hugs, I shall live to drink more more more Burgundy. Especially the sometimes overlooked Cote Chalonnaise. This is ever so exuberant. It just leaps out of the glass at you. Or maybe I’m projecting how I’m gonna be in a coupe weeks. Anyway. Ripe frisky fruits, spice, sass, with this one odd footnote that says raspberry vinegar and herbs. Keeping us thoroughly en France. — 2 years ago

@Ellen Clifford about a month and a half ago they had a burgundy sale and that was one of the ones I picked up. I just assumed that is where you got it!
