Hokkaido Sparkling White Blend 2022

Light white wine from Japan from Hokkaido, the bouquet is citrus, green grapes skins. The pallet is citrus ponzu, and grape pulp forward, yet light and delicate. Well balance acidity. El — a month ago

Otokoyama Tokubetsu Junmai Sake

Mountain river fresh. Quite juicy and clean.

Smooth, not sharp. Rounded and creamy in the mid palate.

Tropical fruits galore. Good smooth, casual drinking.

Pietra Marina Etna Bianco Superiore Carricante 2017

Great sea spray salinity with a bit of bite at first. Leaving the bottle to warm up and take some air gave it a rounder edge. Enjoyed with Hokkaido scallop and osetra caviar, and then a Cesar with boquerones. Tasty! — 5 months ago

Nana-Tsu-Mori Pinot Noir 2021

Believe the hype. A big sweaty vegetal savory note- celery?? chartreuse?? - cloaked in velvet. Something Burgundian yet totally sui generis. Fabulous texture, seductive nose. Thanks to @Geoff Franz — 5 months ago
