Sainte Céline Chablis Chardonnay 2019

Look: light w/ minor green tint
Nose: Lemon, vegetal, orange
Taste: sweet, gentle and playful acid, round tannins, gentle alcohol, lemon comes through fully, other hints of citrus.

Maybe too citrusy, but a really outstanding wine for the price

Vinca Minor Old Vine & Dry Farmed Mendocino Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Gorgeous wine. Palate coating seashore with lemon, good acid, excellent body, there’s a creaminess to it that I love. It is very well balanced. — a month ago

Liaison Pinot Noir 2019

Tasting E&M since 2009 & visited a couple of times. 10 years later they are still at the top.
Challenging to taste and evaluate. This wine needs hours/days of air. Classic E&M perfume,
red currants, pine tree sap, white pepper on the nose. Looks like a light weight- Well? Underripe strawberries, later dark 🍒 , crushed marble, hint bitter, orange zest, prune skins, My suggestion pop drink for hours and listen to Vivaldi’s Spring Concerto in E-Minor - it is that good.

Our final bottle of the 2017 vintage.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, without orchestra or conductor 😉. Three humble souls playing an all BEETHOVEN program (Piano Trio No. 3 in C minor (Opus 1, No. 3) and Symphony No. 2 in D (Opus 36, arr. for piano trio by Beethoven)) with a few of the best players of instruments containing strings, Yo-Yo Ma (cello), Leonidas Kavakos (violin) and Emanuel Ax (piano). A true delight for lovers of Classical music this evening!

Balcombe Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2008

Beautiful showing of a mature, classically styled Pinot Noir. Pretty garnet color, slight bricking at the rim. Bottle funk at first, which blew off within 15 min. A somewhat reduced nose remained until day two. Apart from that, forest floor, a little leather and spice. Savory, cherry on the palate, bright acidity brings liveliness. The smooth tannins are less prominent, but still present. Cork was in perfect shape, only minor penetration. Considerable amount of fine sediment, definitely needs careful decanting. — 7 days ago

Quimera Mendoza Malbec Blend 2003

Such a delicious wine! Prior notes apply, this bottle still has years, if not a decade, in front. Wowie, wow! More chocolate and leather than our last bottle, abundant dark fruits, minor acidity, no tannins. Again, lots of sediment. Decanted 3H.

Paired to Allen Brothers Mangalitsa Pork, Secreto cut. The ultimate pork, very buttery and tasty, nothing compares. Grilled to perfection in a mere 5M.

Kabinett Trocken Weißer Burgunder 2017

Prior notes still mostly apply, decanted +3H. Lighter acidity (👍) and a touch more neutral-ish oak notes, showing beautiful tonight!

Nose has green apple slice, under-ripe pear, garden fresh string beans, cold butter and fresh green apple peel.
Palate has baked green apple with sprinkle of sugar, lemon pith, river stones, lemon zest with medium acidity and a long finish.

That’s great news! Also, is that a beaker used a decanter? Love it

@Sean Smith yep 1000ml decanters are great for tasting nights with a bunch of wines or just a Tuesday and don’t want to hassle with cleaning fancy decanters. Cheap on Amazon too! Cheers!

Incredible stuff here: hardly showed any signs of age w/minor bricking on swirl but just stunning nose of black & blue fruits w/a fresh lift along w/cocoa, mocha, vanilla, licorice, spice, and a distinct vein of minerality. Just flat out badass. It’s in quite the sweet spot right now - acidity & tannins firing on all cylinders. Tasted this on release and really loved it and amazed at how it shows 20 years in — a month ago
