Torrione Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2004

Nose has dried blackberry, ripe blackberry, dried black currant, old leather, roses, dry potting soil and cut strawberry.

Palate has ripe blackberry, black cherry, cigar, dried cherry, dark chocolate powder with a long finish. Fine tannins still make themselves known, noting the potential of longevity. Exceptional.

Our last bottle on this vintage, it had been a good run, but quite likely this bottle will continue to evolve thru 2024+. 100% Sangiovese.

Pulled the cork, 6h of breathing, then 90m of decant before dinner. Paired to a slowly cooked Bolognese sauce, as expected they worked well. It was a cool and breezy day today, highs in the low 60's (F). The end of May is going out like early May came in, chilly. We got back into the 40's last night, but at least no snow like the first weekend!

One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer (GT&TD) Spätburgunder 2016

9.5

Now the high end Jurgen wines. Sick nose. Incredible. The next cult German Pinot. It’s so obvious. Nose of intense black cherries, mid season best of bunch red cherries, some cooling blueberry that echoes Cecile Tremblay. Loads of spice and earth. But so so so refined. Delicate yet intense nose. Superb. Beguiling. Huge minerality. Smells like red rocks. You sniff for 10 minutes before you sip as it is so good and keeps changing. After 10 minutes there is massive complex aromas. Palate has insane inner mouth perfume and massive elegance. Incredible palate. Mega juicy and so complex. So pure and clean. Lithe and elegant but intensely flavored with bursting mid season red and black cherries. Incredible energy and sweetness of fruit and man it is so so elegant. Pure as the driven snow. This is mega elite. The intensity combined with delicacy is incredible. Masterful balance and top of the line purity. Delicate and powder tannins with perfect ethereal ripeness. 9.5 for now. But I see this going higher. Insanely long finish. — a month ago

What's with the very non-traditional naming here? Needing something to catch your attention on that label...?

Fresh and vibrant. That prickle of false effervescence. Stone fruit and melon rind with that unmistakable Gruner viscosity. White pepper. Snow peas. It’s good, but tough to justify above $30. — a month ago

Bourgogne Cote d'Or Pinot Noir 2017

Prior notes still apply, no new notes, pop & pour format today to see performance under non-decant setting. All good. 👍

Used for keeping the chef hydrated this afternoon while crafting today's batch of Peach jam. Fruits are coming in early this year, so I'm about three weeks ahead of most years. Yesterday was Apricot/Red Currant jam and Red Currant/Black Currant/Raspberry jam. Last weekend was a big batch of Red Currant jam. If you're a gardener, learn how to preserve your harvest into future years. Home canning will bring you great satisfaction to open a jar of something that'll remind you of warm weather when the snow is flying and piling up.

Pro tip for 🍑 jam, don't blanche all your skins off, they impart flavor and help add nice red-ish color to the finished product. (10, 8oz jars today)
