Southing Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir

Prefer 10 but this delivery was sooner. Still love. Rather drink this and have frozen pizza than go out and have marked up wine. Beautiful Pinot noir. Soft cherry flowers. Not tart. Enjoyed. — 16 hours ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

Delectable Wine

This bottle of 1983 Pichon-Lalande (I really can't be bothered to type out its full name) is the best of many encountered over the years. This offers gorgeous melted red fruit, woodbines, smoke and cigar humidor scents that could only come from Pauillac. Hints of black truffle and morels follow after about an hour in the glass. The palate displays lovely balance, poised and fresh, perhaps more vigor than I ever expected, with just a hint of dried blood on the finish. Impeccable provenance played a role here, but it is still a 1983 that should not be underestimated. Tasted blind at Pichon-Lalande. (Neal Martin, Vinous, August 2023)

Sea Smoke

Ten Estate Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

Lovely! Light tobacco on the nose. Strawberries on the front — medium tannic structure that’s silky into the finish — a light toasting with mineral high notes that completes with slightly sour zing on the finish to knock us out of our complacency. — 23 days ago

Cornas Reynard (R) Syrah 2010

This had a silky, finessed, elegant mouthfeel showing black cherry, dark berry fruits, smoke, graphite, mineral that is inky on the palate with licorice, spice & violets. — 2 months ago

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Medium deep ruby core , pretty narrow garnet rim , youthful and bright . Slightly funky at first but this blows off to release concentrated spicy cassis , blackberry, red currant , cigar box , wood smoke , truffle. On the palate very rounded with fresh dark blackcurrant and red currant fruits , well balanced acidity. Rounded but quite noticeable tannins. Long sweet red fruit finish with touches of charcoal, grafite and a saline nuance. This is lovely now, and maintained well in the decanter for 5 hours , and will surely last on this high plateau for another decade at least as it appears so young, plump and fruit driven. — 2 months ago

Sea Slopes Fort Ross Vineyard Pinot Noir

I really liked this wine. It might be a little pricey for a basic but good Pinot Noir but I thought it had a good balance of fruit and it was a pleasure to drink — 4 months ago
