Sequins & Sawdust

Meteor Vineyard

Perseid Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Red fruit, black fruit, cherry cola, sawdust. Stellar. — 7 days ago


Heurtebise Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

These are 2011 grapes, disg in March 2017 with 5 g/L dosage. The bubbles are strong to begin, so if I were to do this again, I would either give this a few years or a decant...or just let it sit for a while. Notes from 4 hrs open. On the nose: pure chalk, followed by lemon oil...slathered in minerality. With vigorous swirling, a touch of sawdust. On the palate, fantastic acidity paired with excellent depth: lemon oil, a suggestion of custard, good salinity and soft mousse lifts these flavors. A very nice, complex style. — a month ago

Earthy barn funk moss leather molasses cassis oak sawdust. Full bodied, good length, could have a touch more fullness but excellent. — 2 months ago

Domaine de la Chanteleuserie

Alouettes Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2016

Nose has recently crushed granite, grilled/warmed black cherry, dried citrus, (minor) moist cedar sawdust, licorice, red Twizzlers© candy and white pepper.

Palate has ripe cherry, dried cherry, fresh orange zest, dark chocolate shavings, dried blueberries, all very round and complete on the palate. Medium-short finish. Definite improvement with additional age!

About two years since our last bottle, doing quite well this evening, can hold another 4-6Y (2024-26) in proper storage.

Post Flirtation Red 2018

Nose has blackberry, moist sawdust, cut pomegranate, red vines candy, mashed raspberry and cold green herbs.

Palate has sweetened dried cherries, over-ripe strawberry, fresh blackberry, white pepper with mild tannins and refreshing acidity. So GD tasty! 90m decant, in the zone! I wish we had more than this bottle 🤦‍♂️.
