Presqu'ile Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

Ron R
9.1

Purchased without my usual research, and that may have been an error.
The finish departs off on a tangent, leaving your palate with a slight bitter note. All other elements are fine. Wifey likes it more than I do.

Day 2 and I need to consume a small portion of humble pie. Increased my score from 89 to 91. Much better today. Now warm, soft and very approachable. It’s a buy 😉

Vanilla forward, lots of tobacco, slight dark fruit later on the palate. Consistently tangent with white cheeses. — 6 years ago

Paragon Vineyard Viognier 2015

Perfect hue for the Golden state. Nose is honey, cucumber and something funky. Maybe ‘pool toy’? Flavors are luscious. Streaks of acid and bitterness pair perfectly with the melon, apricots, yellow plums and honeysuckle. Pretty round in the mouth. It’s a fragrant and tasty CA Viognier. Hasn’t lost any freshness 5 years on. And it’s SIP Certified Sustainable to boot. — 2 years ago

Lovely textures of spice and apricots. But fresh. Another Emilia is genius. Sad you don’t see these wines at more shops in NY. But that’s another tangent... — 3 years ago

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi

Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2014

Despite the cagily not helpful nature of the tech sheet which would not give me the percentages of cab s, Merlot, cab f and sangiovese in this I’m not mad at it. Juicy with good acid and I love a bit of acid. More red fruit than black, and lots of baking spices that have been socializing with olives. I hate olives but these olives had enough character to liven up the mix without being an overwhelming note. What I’m saying is these are the only olives I will ever associate with. Sorry that was a tangent this wine is yummy and on the lighter side of cab blends. — 4 years ago

So does no olives = no northern Rhône? Because that would be ☹️

@Matt Perlman you know, I’ve never had a problem with it in N Rhône! I think it’s just actual olives I hate—maybe more a textural thing than a flavor thing. Cause I do love a good Cornas...so maybe I misspoke about this being the only olive thing I’ll associate with🤔hmmm
