Domaine Jean Grivot

Échezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016


A little closed at the moment but the aromas are strong with musk, unripe raspberries, underbrush, pepper, cherries and a hint of Asian spice. The texture and body demand time with tannin that still feels a little unruly. Great stuff, needs time. — 9 days ago

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah

Superb. Needed something to stand up to a bone in rib eye as well as an unruly 1 year old. Deep garnet color. Lot of berries on the nose with hints of smoke and bacon fat. Beautiful long tannic finish. — 3 years ago

Piancarda Montepulciano 2017

Made some homemade sausage and some greens. Grilled it and opened this for a Marchegiani dinner. Not as unruly as a few vintages I be had, but very good. Rosso conero is the DOC. All montepulciano. — 4 years ago

Ridge Vineyards

Three Valleys Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2017


Not sure if Draper is still making these wines, but Ridge has been so consistent & solid over the years... and this affordable kitchen sink blend is delicious: dark & rich, big extraction here w/mouth coating tannins and gobs of brambly red & black berry fruit. Def some oak in this bad boy, hi ABV as well. Bit unruly right now - probably needs a nap for a few years. — 3 years ago

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

White Horse Red Blend 2015

Very small production NY Lake District red blend of 80% cab franc & 20% merlot. Nothing broad here. Fine wild blackberries & eucalyptus, untamed & unruly. Truly intriguing & delicious—& at 20$, a steal. 2nd bottle. — 4 years ago

Blew my mind. Restrained but powerful Bordeaux blend.. Sleek and penetrating with fruit that rides an acidic racehorse. A true thoroughbred.

Glad you enjoyed so much! Though no Bordeaux blends with that much cab franc-unless we talk Cheval Blanc, which is usually a 55/40/5 or so blend.


Cuvée Rare Champagne Blend 2008

Decidedly less brioche than a recent 06, more lemon rind. Less unruly / youthfully exuberant vs. others in class of 08. Developed nicely over the duration of dinner. — 2 years ago

Horton Vineyards

The Tower Series Norton 2018


Man I just love Norton - it is such a fun, expressive wine. It’s loud & boisterous and downright unruly, but it’s uniquely American. Inky and brimming with black fruit galore & then menthol, medicinal, licorice, forest floor, squirrely spice just pour out of the glass. So expressive. On the palate it is voluptuous w/plenty of acidity & tannins, it’s just a bit clumsy, but it means well. Black fruit compote with kitchen sink spices envelope the palate. Decent finish. Don’t know what the hell you’re supposed to eat with this stuff but it’s a lot of fun. — 2 years ago

Norton grape is fantastic!

Colline Lucchesi Calafata

Majulina Red Blend

Wonderful unruly and spicy, but lightly flattering and later somewhat creamy. Makes you dream sitting in Tuscan vineyards in evening sun. 700 Celsius grilled Flank steak of “werdenfelser weiderind” - violett asparagus in rosemary butter - “Haferwurz”, hazelnut oil - bob dylan on vinyl, make wine not war- a perfect wine now — 4 years ago
