Kit's Coty Blanc de Blancs 2014

Pale, medium effervescence. Less prominent Apple palate than I’d remembered but still there with coaxing. Balanced and drinkable. — 11 days ago

North Coast Pinot Noir 2017

Medium bodied, soft flavors. Goes down easy! Nice with some gruyere or manchego. Not big enough to go with steak — 4 days ago

Williams Selyem

Eastside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir

‘14 Coravin pour. Baking spice, cherry cobbler, good acidity. Bigger styled Pinot than I usually drink but it’s Williams Selyem so I can def get down with this. — a day ago

WS pinots can be pretty magical when they get close to the decade mark

Fontanafredda

Serralunga d'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

First and foremost, these are my all time favorite labels. Deep clear ruby color, almost Tawny. Little violet specks throughout. Traditional and classic to its core. Black truffles and moist earth initially on the nose with the customary dried cherries showing up. Menthol, dried herbs, and black tea.

Stylish and refined, as all Barolo should be. Tight at first but opens up very nicely after an hour. Bright acidity and ripe tannins. A staple of these Fontanafredda wines. A touch of old leather to go with the cherries and blackberries. More beautiful herbs on the palate to go with the star anise and cigar box. As wonderful as it is today, it’s fun thinking about what it can be down the road.

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Just at its peak. Equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with just a touch of Cabernet Franc. Concentrated and dried cherry, blueberry and prune aromas with hints of mushroom, Forrest Floor and purple flowers. Same fruits on the pallet with a beautiful viscous texture and a touch of smoke on the finish. Dense and Full! What a treat! Thanks Kasey and Pete! — 3 days ago

Alta Colina

GSM Estate Paso Robles Red Rhone Blend 2014

9.3

Surprising. Deep brooding color. Intense aromas of deep, ripe bramble and hints of peppery spice. A touch of VA on the nose. On the palate the fruit is ripe and slightly chewy and the acidity balances out the ripe fruit. I’m very surprised by the alcohol level. Only 13.4%!!! This is one is by no means watered down? It’s pure and intense, and there’s no green underripe fruit here? #pasorobles #gsmblend #gsm — 25 days ago
