Embruix Priorat Grenache Blend 2017

Dark and squishy, like that one girl who turned into a blueberry in Willy Wonka — 2 years ago

Linne Calodo

"The Martian" Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

All you need in life is weed whiskey and willy, but this bottle of linne isn’t a bad addition to the list.... fresh red fruits but a solid hit of minerals to keep things from being fruity. Great all around drinker, any/every occasion — 4 years ago

Poiré Authentique

New Years part 1: still, the winner of the New Years populist vote, even over a Lafite-is this baby. Has levels, is dry, & evokes pear memories like Willy Wonka — 5 years ago

Vlahiko Dry Red Blend 2016

I love Greek wine. They really get the idea. Light bodied, could be chilled. Like eating a eating a blueberry tart and drink a lambic with salt water riding up against the bottle. but Willy wonka style - so it’s all in this wine — 2 years ago


Estate Bottled Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

A fun blast to the past with this ‘01. Smooth tannins, bing cherry, black fruit. A roll of your tongue kind of experience. A Willy Wonka ticket for the holidays. — 4 years ago

Iron Horse Vineyards

Estate Chardonnay 2012

2012 Napa/Sonoma closeout Chardonnay face-off. If you were going to make a movie theater popcorn flavor of chewing gum, you’d want to drink the William Hill before you started just to make sure you got it right. It’s a Willy Wonka expression of malolactic fermentation. The Iron Horse brings more precision along with more restraint. Focused stone fruit infused with lemongrass and lychee lead the way to a lime and mineral driven finish. — 5 years ago

Thörnicher Ritsch Spätlese Riesling 1994

Thornicher ritsch SPATLESE (Caps not needed).

Old school aged mosel Riesling. Some petrol on the nose. Green apple skin. Palate is green apples. But a hint of green apple jolly rancher a la willy Schaefer. Still beautifully vibrant. Complex. Wow.

I’m writing this on day 3. Needs a decant to hit peak Amazing.

Bought from fass selections.

Complices de Loire Chenin Blanc 2013

Very nice chenin blanc. Zippy and bright but also medium body, as it opens up tastes a bit like gruyere cheese and lemon and smells like what the candied daffodils in Willy Wonka I imagine would smell/taste like. Also has a nice touch of a bitter finish. Pairs great with citrus and tahini. — 5 years ago

Opus One

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1998

Drinking the 2 decade old product of the masterful collaboration of the new world (order's) master, Robert Mondavi, and the old world's (puppet) master, Baron Philippe Rothschild was a dream cum. True, I may be biased, but after recently tasting the 1996 and 1997 vintages of Robert Mondavi's Napa Can, I can see how much RM benefitted from Rothschild's involvement in the 1998 Opus One. He must have felt like the Cleveland Orchestra in Michael Jackson's Will You Be There (Free Willy Song). Really good, aged, mellow cherry juice. This one has quite a few years of life left in it. Mmmmmm. — 5 years ago
