La Combe Verte Chardonnay 2019

Super reductive. Nutty, tight, flinty. Needs a long decant at this point. Day 2 turns into something quite special for the price point. Saltywaxy citrusy Oregon meets Chablis meets Jura. — 7 days ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Normally I’m wary of NZ Sauv Blancs; the typical punch-you-in-the-face-with-grapefruit-and-grass style had never really been to my taste. But this one is very interesting, with lemon and grapefruit, tart tropicals like passion fruit and pomegranate, a little pineapple and lychee, and accented with hints of ginger, gardenia, and that trademark grassiness on the nose. Riper fruits peach and mango show up as it warms up such as. The palate has some mellow citrus with lemon and grapefruit, white peach, a touch of lemongrass and ginger on the nose with a medium long finish. Very very good, interesting Sauv Blanc and white wine in general, yet relaxed and refreshing enough to pair with food (like green salad, oysters, and dishes with citrus-led sauces). — 21 days ago

The Rock Salt Chardonnay 2019

Quite reductive. Citrus/mineral nose. Saline, lemon-lime/mineral accord. Great texture. Long finish. This really blossomed over 5 hours. First bottle from this producer. Lovely work. — 2 months ago

Freedom Hill Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

9.4

I get used to Rombauer as my chardonnay baseline. This held up and then some. It’s not quite as oaky and mouth-filling, but it’s still terrific. The main note of difference I got was tobacco, and I really enjoyed that. — 7 days ago

D122 Pinot Noir 2013

Wow, the six years since my last btl have really been generous to this wine. Absolutely lovely light-styled PN now. On the nose: perfumed red fruit, loads of stony minerality, soft rose hips, a hint of blood orange..fantastic aromatic complexity and still rather primary. On the palate: excellent density, very nice acidity and weight, with more spicy red fruit and lots of stony notes. Lovely soft spice and very soft tannin on the elegant finish. This is fantastic now, and seems like it will age very gracefully, if this btl is representative. Yum! — 3 days ago

Château Duhart Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

9.3

It has gotten to the point I need two wines with the Allen Brothers sampler of Ribcap & Wagyu Ribeye w/ my Roasted Rosemary Potatoes & Christina’s tasty glazed carrots.

The 02 DuHart over achieving the vintage.

The 12 Lutum Durell Vineyard hugs the Rosemary Potato’s & Glazed Cooked Carrots.

The DuHart is dark fruit currants, smoke, tobacco, pronounced lead pencil, clay, river stone, limestone, dark spice, dry& fresh herbs, eucalyptus/mint, dry twig, crushed dry rocks, forest floor and dark wilted flowers with nice acidity & polish & elegance for days.
