Vinca Minor Old Vine & Dry Farmed Mendocino Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Gorgeous wine. Palate coating seashore with lemon, good acid, excellent body, there’s a creaminess to it that I love. It is very well balanced. — a month ago

Quimera Mendoza Malbec Blend 2003

Such a delicious wine! Prior notes apply, this bottle still has years, if not a decade, in front. Wowie, wow! More chocolate and leather than our last bottle, abundant dark fruits, minor acidity, no tannins. Again, lots of sediment. Decanted 3H.

Paired to Allen Brothers Mangalitsa Pork, Secreto cut. The ultimate pork, very buttery and tasty, nothing compares. Grilled to perfection in a mere 5M.

Liaison Pinot Noir 2019

Tasting E&M since 2009 & visited a couple of times. 10 years later they are still at the top.
Challenging to taste and evaluate. This wine needs hours/days of air. Classic E&M perfume,
red currants, pine tree sap, white pepper on the nose. Looks like a light weight- Well? Underripe strawberries, later dark 🍒 , crushed marble, hint bitter, orange zest, prune skins, My suggestion pop drink for hours and listen to Vivaldi’s Spring Concerto in E-Minor - it is that good.

Bosché Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 1982

Prior notes still apply, this had slightly better fill than our prior, but far more stinky on the nose, palate suberb. 🤷‍♂️

Nose has over-ripe stinky cherry, dry leather, moist leather, old horse pasture, tomato leaf, blackberry, dried blueberry, dried mint, saturated oak and old cigar.

Palate has blackberry, partially dried cherry, dried raspberry, (minor) moist garden soil, wet raisins with soft tannins and a long finish.

Decanted 6H. High-shoulder fill on this particular bottle, one more bottle with minimal fill loss. Quite reminiscent of older Bordeaux in the nose/palate traits.

Paired alongside medium rare Delmonico cut steaks from our favorite local farm, Kinderhook Farm (Valatie NY). Perfection.

There is no comparison of a 92pt wine of this age and one that is still youthful

Domaines Brocard

Sainte Céline Chablis Chardonnay 2019

Look: light w/ minor green tint
Nose: Lemon, vegetal, orange
Taste: sweet, gentle and playful acid, round tannins, gentle alcohol, lemon comes through fully, other hints of citrus.

Maybe too citrusy, but a really outstanding wine for the price

Incredible stuff here: hardly showed any signs of age w/minor bricking on swirl but just stunning nose of black & blue fruits w/a fresh lift along w/cocoa, mocha, vanilla, licorice, spice, and a distinct vein of minerality. Just flat out badass. It’s in quite the sweet spot right now - acidity & tannins firing on all cylinders. Tasted this on release and really loved it and amazed at how it shows 20 years in — a month ago

Mules Mistake Grenache Blend 2019

828 cases made, 50/21/20 blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Sangiovese plus minor additions of Counoise, Petite Sirah and Barbera. Medium extracted pigment, very good clarity. Fruity nose, lightly tannic, cherryish flavors with notes of tangerine, mint, spearmint and white pepper. Pioneers of wine growing in Cochise County AZ. Paired it with grilled chicken and red mole, and also grilled salmon. Artisanal yet tasty — 2 months ago
