Ca'del Baio

Autinbej Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2013

Hidden gem. Made with fruit from 3 hilltop vineyards. Raspberry jam, rose petal, leather. Beautiful tannins. Another one that delivers the next day. Perfect with Pastaria, while taking care of 3 kids, solo. — 2 days ago

California Chardonnay

Holy good golly this is amazing. Bright, citrusy with that vanilla hook - bold right off the bat. Tart, lingering finish. Bold Californian chard that brings it with a full body and mouth feel! Outstanding alone - take care to pair with something to compliment this big flavored. — a month ago

Château de Francs

Les Cerisiers Côtes de Francs Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

I normally don't buy Bordeau wines, but for a change. Deep dark wine red. Oaky with tannin, and dark fruit note. Decanting should make it better (I just don't care much...). Cericiers means cherry trees, according to google. Should have noticed the cherry. — 5 months ago

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

Just incredibly smooth and balanced. Blueberries, blackberries, cinnamon, and some notes of cedar. Probably would be better with time but babies don’t care about drinking windows. Welcome Rhys. — 7 months ago

Ontario Baco Noir 2020

This may be something of a guilty pleasure for me, as it seems that I am going decidedly against the grain by loving this one so much. I don't care though; this wine is just so soft and silky with a bounty of dark fruit, spice, and a bit of smoke. Just terrific. 100% Baco Noir. 6/5/22. — 2 months ago

Viña Ponte Cabaleiros

Rías Baixas Albariño 2019

Bright, deep gold. Nose is very shy, but gives tart yellow apple and butterscotch. Full palate echoes the nose with less butterscotch and a firm backbone of stony mineral-laden acidity. Finish is a bit short, but honestly you won't care after that mouthful of slate. If you drink Albariño as a sipper, this is your step up to Albariño as a dinner wine. Lemon salmon with four-cheese gnocchi is my pairing, and it will go equally well with similar hearty sea fare. Drink now through 2026. — 3 months ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

First off Merry Christmas and 4 plus years ago I had this wine so I felt it appropriate to reproduce my notes from then as this is exactly the same - loved this wine so here we go

maybe because I am drinking a well rested and well taken care bottle of wine or maybe because it is a Big Bold Beautiful Napa Cab or all of the above but

This wine is singing to me and I am singing back - "that's the way I like it"

Color is dark ruby thick as a meaty steak - the smell opens with a mild smoky oak and blueberry bouquet which I love the blue fruit - The taste on my palate is between a medium / big bodied taste with a balanced and very fruit forward mouth watering experience - it has
flavors of ripe blueberries and blackberries with I think includes raspberries as well - fruit loaded for sure The finish is loooong, smooth / dry and its mild fine tannins and flavors linger slightly but in harmony - best to
tame this with a Kobe steak but enjoy as a standalone - this is a relaxing wine - one that you have to relax as a storm approaches or to celebrate an awesome inspiring moment - "I'm a believer

Will last 10 years easy - all SMILES tonight

That is as retro as it gets for me - ALL SMILES

Last thing is be on the lookout as “we are getting the band back” and “we are on a mission from God” - can’t wait
@Bill Bender In San Diego - go Wolfpack - any others there for the East vs West coast event - reach out and will share some epic stuff I promise

“It’s spring and the little goat-footed balloonMan whistles far and wee.” - ee cummings. Far and wee indeed, with crisp saline citrus brightness mellowing with age (this is 2018 vintage). This ain’t your mama’s Muscadet, but Melon de Bourgogne it is, indeed and quite ready to embrace your oysters if you care to share. But there’s also some luxurious lemon curd coming into play here that pleases the balloonMan. — 4 months ago

9.2

Blend of Grenache Blanc & Chard which really works: straw colored w/hint of green sporting generous aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine - really floral along with cantaloupe & melon. Bit of musk & green citrus. On the palate it is big & silky, very suave with flavors of tangerine wrapped in white flowers. Great acidity vigor & balance here. At just over $10- QPR out the Wazoo! — 7 months ago
