Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Rock solid vintage. If you want a wonderful dark fruit 2018 entry cab, get this. If you want red fruit, get the scarlett. — a month ago

De Loach Vineyards

Private Collection California Chardonnay 2019

Although not my favorite white, it was fresh, citrusy and had the minerality of a French Chardonnay. It was goid with baked cod and a delicious gouda mac and cheese. — 5 months ago

Dominio del Plata (Susana Balbo)

Crios Torrontes 2011

A solid version of this new grape type I'm trying. Bought at Total wine and a good weeknight wine that went well with Mac and cheese and roasted chicken. — 5 days ago

Roots Run Deep Winery

Reserve Educated Guess Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

An excellent Cabernet from Napa. It pours a deep purple red. It has a smooth refined texture and body that I usually encounter in somewhat older wines. Flavors of blueberries and boysenberries, some vanilla, and oak. It went perfectly with prime New York steak and truffle Mac and cheese we paired it with. This was an extraordinary deal at Costco - only $20, marked down from $40. MSRP is $50. I have a second bottle that we’ll revisit in a year or so. — a month ago

Woori Yallock Chardonnay 2016

Wonderful wonderful expression of Chardonnay from Mac Forbes clearly on a great site and judicious winemaking. Wish I’d decanted for longer as the flavours just kept developing... — 5 months ago

Azienda Agricola Il Tufiello

Montemattina Campania Fiano 2015

With pasta con le sarde and pistachio-orange blossom cake at home. Fantastic bottle, loads of depth and utterly drinkable. 60 day mac. Spiced orange, cardamom, apricot fruit leather, ginger with nice zesty tannins. Fennel in wine and in dish were bang on, and great pairing with the saffron + texture of the breadcrumbs. Sultanas in pasta with wine — knockout. — 20 days ago

Jacquesson & Fils

Cuvée N° 743 Extra Brut Champagne Blend

I feel like Stefan on SNL weekend update, but this wine has it all:
- complexity ✔️
The descriptors keep coming to me... the wine is showing a good deal of development (‘15 base, extended lees aging in neutral oak, some reserve wine; disgorged 11/19) Aromas of flaky, buttery, just-out-of-the-oven croissant; pomello, vanilla bean/ creme brûlée with a hint of lemon zest; subtle coconut/Shea butter (meunièr maybe?), apricot (fresh and dried), dried red apple, ginger, saffron.
- elegance and finesse ✔️
Lacy and delicate mousse. So weightless on the palate, but so decadent in flavor that it feels like a magic trick.
- a long, flavorful finish ✔️
No dosage and none needed; unfined and unfiltered.
Pairs best with 100% COVID immunity (and Stouffer’s Mac and Cheese from the corner bodega). Salud!
