Blanc Fumé de Pouilly Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Чуть закрыто. Намного более строгое чем 2014. Мусс из яблок на лимонной пенке, в венке из свежескошенной травы, присыпанный крошкой из камней возле стремительного ручья. Очень японский сдержанный формат в духе ваби-саби. — a month ago

Qué Bonito Cacareaba Rioja White Blend 2014

Named after a Spanish rooster, this wine is a highly compelling blend of wine is composed of 50% Garnacha Blanca, 35% Malvasía, and 15% Viura sourced from head-trained vines gown in a mix of alluvial and calcareous soil from the municipalities of San Vicente de la Sonsierra and Briones with Rioja Alta. The three different grape varieties, harvested at different dates according to ripeness, come from the Leza, Ariasabal, Murmurón, El Sauco, El Bombón y Las and Tasugueras Vineyards. The wine was aged in 225 L New French oak barrels for eight months of lees aging and battonage. This wine opens with bright aromas of lemongrass, lychee, nectarine and star jasmine. Aromatically gratifying and compelling the wine constantly brings you back to the glass for more enjoyment. The unctuous texture entices as the silky wine glides along the mid-palate. Orange rind, Meyer lemon, Gravenstein apple pie and white rose flavors come to mind. This is an absolutely stunning bottling by the talented hands of Benjamin Romeo.

Macan Muestra Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Enjoying a very nice Rioja tonight. Deep ruby color. Medium intensity nose with notes of red plums, coffee and a little bit of road tar. Great flavors of dark fruit, chocolate covered cherries, cola, and a hint of licorice. Medium acidity and medium tannins. Very nicely integrated and a very nice finish with a very slight hint of mint. — a month ago

Jarvis Winery

Estate Grown Cave Fermented Finch Hollow Vineyard Chardonnay 2011

Monthly WTF group recap. Theme this month was “bring something special”. Normally we taste all of the wines blind, but we decided to do a relaxed night with amazing wines at a great restaurant. Spectacular evening!

Ben and I wanted to do a flight of Jarvis chards, so he brought the ‘11 Finch Hollow. The color difference against my ‘14 Unfiltered Finch Hollow was drastic! Much more amber in color, as though it had been oxidized a bit. It has an amazingly sweet nose...someone mentioned it was slightly reminiscent of botrytis. Lots of honey and marshmallow cream aromatics. It tastes like Werther’s Butterscotch, candied ginger and baked marzipan. You gotta love the style. Delicious. Thanks
