Cuvée Didascalie Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie Melon de Bourgogne 2017

Quarantine Day 10: I enjoyed this muscadet. Would pair so well with oysters or a grilled fish. High acidity and salinity really pierce the pallet. The nose is tough on this one. Maybe some green apple? Some pear? And maybe even some kind of flinty matchbook smell. It’s good. — 6 months ago

La Montagne Sauvage Syrah Grenache 2013

Previously drank 15' and 14' sequentially and with slight yet pronounced acute differences due to vintage in the fruit, all varietals are pronounced and none overpowers the other. They seem to be adjusted to give the best presentation accordingly. The 13' had lesser vaccuum in bottling but did not sacrifice potential during storage as it fruit is still suddenly vibrant with syrah a top note. Tannins pierce the tip of the tongue and gradually roll to backside of the palate with pleasant ripened red cherries and red plums exclusively, slight smoke from surely light and medium toast from what seems to be American and French oak casks. This surely keeps a nice bouquet of spice lingering. Properly stored this production could poor well through 2025 where the plums might supersede the cherries, which might be more sophisticated. Either way all have been well built for the long haul and will eventually have a following for the experienced. Kudos to those who design wines and not just produce. — 7 months ago

Van Horn Vineyard Riesling 2018

New vintage, boutique winery, personable female winemaker-owner, superior product. Seek this out if you love Riesling. Light yellow, excellent clarity. White floral notes in nose. Almost dry. Crisp with tangerine flavor and finish with length, mineral and lactic character on finish. Fresh grape pulp character at the heart of this, but bright acidity as well. I’d drink this any time but this should be a winner with food. Good complexity and winemaking here, folks; drink it up. The winery is in Salem OR but grapes are from Columbia Gorge AVA — 5 months ago
