Paul Jaboulet Aîné

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2006

This cork challenged my ah so skills but I prevailed. Slow clap 👏🏽 for me. Decanted for 6 hours and it was in a really nice place. Dark dark fruits, smokey game meats, cloves, herbs and white pepper. Still quite young and on the ascension. — 4 years ago

It survived @TheSkip it's always an adventure. My place has 35ft redwood beams supporting the structure and keeping it from falling down the canyon.

Realm Cellars

Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

These recent vintage Realm wines from Benoit just are just incredibly full throttle, profound and lush. There's an extra layer of complexity here that is so impressive. I've been on the allocation list since the beginning and I've enjoyed watching the ascension. This is undoubtedly a Napa first growth estate now. There are few if any North Coast wineries who are as dependably brilliant as Realm is at this point in time. De-Lish. — 3 years ago

Estancia

Monterey County Chardonnay 2015

Like the 1920s Yekaterinburg ballet portraying an airy, gravity-free choreography, while unsupressably bound by the tethers of the Bolshevik revolution. Yearning to soar, yet their ascension be grounded by relentless snowstorms, breezing across the tarmac upon which your vessel must remain.
Tastes like buttered toast with honeyed apricot jam displayed on a woolen table cloth.
