Very tart apricots. Not a lot of juice but very sour. Some vanilla but man this is just tart apricots for days. Really nice in the fall/winter. — 6 days ago
First time trying Assyrtiko from Santorini, Greece, and what a beauty it is to pair with food!
From the mouth-watering acidity to the salinity and tart, youthful citrus, lemon peel, peach, apricot, wet slate, and white blossom florals, it makes for a lovely, culinary complement.
I just wish I had held on for further aging. Ah, patience! I’ll have to invest in a few more.

As far as Chardonnay’s go, this is a lovely example, not too much oak for me. — 11 days ago
Celebrating another trip around the sun. This Piper Rare is medium straw in colour. Masses of ultra fine bubbles ( fine persistent mousse). Complex toasty aromas with a touch of gun smoke and flinty notes. On the palate Complex, Intense and Refreshing all at once. Chalky minerality with a saline note. Yellow fruits with creamy notes starting to take over the acid at 18 years. A blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. An outstanding Champagne from a great year where the contents more than lives up to the bling of the packaging. Tempted to make a statement and give it 98 points. — 6 days ago
Lean, mean, crisp apple and lemon oil, fresh herbs, intensely marine-influenced minerality and salinity. Lovely Chenin-like wooliness and energizing acid on the palate. Bravo to my friend @Erik Longabardi on this profound expression of Long Island history and terroir. — 15 days ago
Raspberry jam but very tart with some raw cocoa. Insane amount of flavor packed into this one. — a day ago
