Nose full of brett. The orange to end all oranges. They were worried it’d be too funky for us! — 11 days ago

12 Linajes Reserva Tempranillo 2012

This is excellent! It's nice to be able to buy a well-cellared wine. Cedar, spice, clove, and cherry tobacco nose. Medium weight, perfect medium acidity, medium plus alcohol. Spearmint starts to emerge at the end. Cherry dominates the finish which is long and well balanced with soft fully resolved tannins. The wine is ready now. Drink up and enjoy.

Nice development since I tasted more than 2 years ago. The nose is still very clean and fresh, but with noticeable dried orchid fruits. Crisp acidity. Suggestion of sweetness but dry, showcasing the ripeness of the fruits from the superlative 13’ vintage. Light oak that’s well integrated.
Peak, but no need to rush.

Seven Springs Vineyard Gamay Noir 2019

At first it taste like any other higher end natty red wine. I would have believed it was Carignan or Pais no problem. But with air things came together and it’s started to actually taste like Gamay, with sweet red berries, pink peppercorn, and woodsy earth. High acid, long finish. Good, but not great. — 11 days ago

Santenay Beauregard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Very enjoyable. Nose has vibrant, sappy dark cherry juice, a bit of sweet spice, and warm, crushed-rock infused minerality and a little teeny bit of cow pasture. Savory, with nice flavor concentration in the mouth, nice minerality and zingy acids at the tail end of the finish. Whispy tannins. So drinkable now, but will be better in 2-4. — 13 days ago
