Love that color.

Château Pavie Macquin

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

2017 vintage. Oh. Wow. Blue/black fruit, dusty cedar and rhubarb in the nose. Silky medium body. The cedar (and a bit of oak) galloping through on a body thinning finish that ends up supremely dry after collecting zinc, orange peel and sea salt. This baby needs some TLC in the cellar and will grow up to be an absolute monster. — 8 days ago

Johann Donabaum

Limitierte Edition Smaragd Riesling 2018

Vintage 2018 | Grand grüner veltliner, minerality, freshness. I find this a difficult grape. But my goodness what a joy if you taste a ‘Grand’ grüner veltliner. A bit, a little bit, sweetness, awesome balance. I have got no GV in the cellar, but must reconsider this.. for sure | paired with red mullet | at Monarh — 10 hours ago

John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

I knew this would be a good wine, but it exceeded my expectations. The 2018s still need time in the cellar and I was surprised how approachable this is today. Dark berries, vanilla and tobacco. Should have bought more at $74. — 10 days ago

Pierre Moncuit

Cuvée Nicole Moncuit Vieille Vigne Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut Champagne Chardonnay 1996

Brought from my cellar to a special edition of Tasting Group in celebration of one of the member’s turning 40. On this night, the theme was sparkling wines, served blind. Poured a deep, golden color; bubbles still going strong. On the nose, oxidative notes of almonds accompanied by bruised apple and a touch of Greek yogurt. On the palate, this is rich and opulent, again with the apples with lemon. Crazy acidity with a finish lasting for well over a minute; it seems to build the longer it sits! A mature Champagne with many years of life left. Gorgeous. — a day ago

Cuvée Jadis Extra Brut Premier Cru Champagne Blend 2008

Just another outstanding bottle! All the rest of these 2008's are safely in storage, this was our last in the home cellar. Future sampling 2028+.

Prior notes apply:
Nose has effervescent limestone water, crusty sourdough bread, excessively zested lemon and lemon creme pie.
Palate has saline lemon juice, lemon slice peel, an amazing level of acidity but equally balanced; what a finish!

Château Les Bertrands

Nectar des Bertrands Côtes de Blaye Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

I found this little gem in the back of my cellar. I thought I drank it years ago but alas it’s been there for the past 17 years without being touched. Absolutely gorgeous 2000 vintage at its peak All the hard edges have faded into history leaving a gorgeous graphite laden claret that is soft as silk. I can’t stop drinking this wine! FYI, Delectable says it’s cab sav but it’s cab franc blend. Thanks again JR. you blew me away — 5 days ago

Robert Mondavi Winery

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Reached back in the cellar for this one. The cork was totally saturated - was really nervous that the wine was dead - but it was spectacular. Could not believe how well this was drinking at 30 years. And it persisted for the entire time we enjoyed this on Friday night (along with a killer grilled flat iron steak). Totally old-school Napa…and it was fantastic! — 6 days ago
