Louis Jadot

Domaine Gagey Les Boudots Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Just what one would expect from a Domaine Gagey Louis Jadot. Not super exciting but extremely competent wine making. Nice fruits, cherry and raspberry. Still shows some of the more tannic qualities of a Nuits Saint George. Enjoyed with a pheasant boudin blanc. — 7 months ago

Harris Kratka Vineyard Zinfandel 2005

JKT
9.0

A rich but now well balanced Zin in that ripe style that I’d likely not have been too fond of when it was younger. Bottle coated with sediment and oak is prominent in how it’s resolved with plummy berry vanilla notes. Back label says a field blend of Zin Carignane and Petit Sirah, Alexander Valley vineyard, vines cultivated on St. George rootstock grafted onto a 75 year old clone of Zin. — a year ago

Notes from Mia Klein:
The 2005 vintage gave ample rain in the winter, charging up the soil water profile for a very nice growing season. Temperatures were moderate and consistent from early spring through October. Both the mature, established Cabernet Sauvignon vines and the now five year old Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot vines produced some wonderful juice.

Me either. From the Abbaye St. Vivant vineyard in the Hautes-Cotes. Aubert de Villaine is leading a project to restore the Abbaye.

Buffalo Trace Distillery

Sazerac Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

How does anyone not hoard (regular) Sazerac at ~$25?!
Incredibly smooth, great sweet note to the finish. Again, why haven't I not been buying this for years...?

(BTW Kirkland Bourbon at $30 is worth the price of admission, earthy oak note on the palate is quite similar to Buffalo Trace.)

Counter-Clockwise from top left:
Buffalo Trace (single-barrel selection), Jefferson's Reserve Very Old/Very Small Batch, Knob Creek (9yo), Kirkland Bourbon (7yo), St George single-malt (SM 015), Hillrock (Ancram NY, solera aged, Barrel No. 174), Berkshire Mountain Distillers Shay's Rebellion and Wild Turkey Master's Keep (Batch 0001, 17yo).

Raspberry Aqua Perfecta (Rasberry Liqueur)

Dark as night. Crushed raspberry nose. Pretty sweet. Very raspberry flavored. But cooked down. Like an alcoholic raspberry syrup. Pure. Might be best in a mixed drink. — 7 months ago

Haynes Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

Reminds me of a Bacigalupi Chard 👍🏼
Coombsville's beloved Haynes Vineyard was planted upon beds of rich, volcanic alluvial soils in back in the late 1960s, making it one of the oldest Chardonnay vineyards within the Napa Valley. Old Wente clones have been grafted upon St. George rootstock. After harvest, the grapes are fermented with native yeast, which follows with full malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 11 months sur lies in 15% new French oak, 20% concrete egg, and 10% stainless steel.
