Grand Terroir Les Aspres Red Rhone Blend 2016

‘Grand Terroir’ on label in cursive. That’s setting yourself up eh? Great blend though. One of my favorites. SMG (think GSM is more common here on the West Coast). Dark brooding, berry color. Aroma blends wet soil and river banks with some gunpowder and cherry jelly. Maybe toasted sweet bread as well. And a sage-oregano-basil thing. Flavors are full, strange in a good way, and complex. Minerality of the nose comes. Also has toasty side. Grilled pork chops over a campfire with plum relish? (That would sure pair well). Finish has the licorice/anise and herbal liquor thing in there with the ‘cherry pit’ (I read that about this wine, I think in Wine Advocate). This is lovely wine of Southern France that was such a great deal at Grocery Outlet ($5.50 at the 20% off sale I believe) that I bought 3-4 bottles to have on hand. — 24 days ago

Domaine du Vissoux / Pierre-Marie Chermette

Origine Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais 2021

Got that Nouveau + Cru Beaujolais nose (pepper, cranberry, blackberry, red & black currant, violets, and a little bit o’ granite), but super light, tart, juicy and straightforward on the palate. This basic wine b!tch loves her Nouveau in fall and will convince you that there’s nothing better that $30 can buy than a bottle of this stuff and spicy hand pulled sesame noodles from Shandong. A day late, but happy Beaujolais day nonetheless! — 11 days ago

Domaine de Chevalier

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Decent nose but super tight currently and loathe to name names and drop specifics. Great (9.6) body tho. Will pick up more and definitely decant and wait hand and foot on the current remaining bottle when opened in the next few months. — 21 days ago

Libera Estate

Melnik 55

This wine is actually the Melnik 55
made from 100% Melnik grapes.

Smells like walking through a cherry orchard, with a mug of coffee in hand.

Mulberry, touches of vanilla, Italian coffee, the wine is of a hefty medium bodied well made wine, with a cocoa tannin overture, and pinch of acidity. A solid wine,

Martin Woods

Jessie James Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

Lyle Fass
9.6

The grand cru at Martin Woods and the 19 is a benchmark wine. Nose has dizzying spice and sour cherries. Gorgeous mineral tones. Layers of honey. Fields. Scenes in nature. Late spring it smells like. A stunning aroma. The palate is ridiculous. Pure velvet. But bright, tart and tangy but in such an off hand way. Wow this is juicy and so refined. There is the tiniest hit of opulence which really brings this home. Right at the beginning of the midpalate. Wonderful texture and oh so nimble. A fine line of structure ensures a long life. — a month ago

La Montesa Alfaro Rioja Baja Tempranillo Blend 2015

$15.00 whats not to like, nothing complicated, pop pour Tuesday
Parker 92 review as follows

Always a sure value, the 2015 La Montesa, has been increasing the amount of Garnacha in its blend, and here it reached 92% with the remaining 8% being Tempranillo. La Montesa is the name of a large estate where different lieux-dits, or "parajes" in Spanish, contribute to the blend of Valtomelloso, Valfrio and Valviejo. The grapes were hand-picked throughout October, then destemmed, crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats, with remontage, where it also underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine matured in barrel for 12 months before being bottled. There is a big jump from La Vendimia to La Montesa in finesse, freshness and subtleness. The tannins are ultrafine, and the flavors are intense and deep, with some spicy undertones and a very tasty finish. Amazingly good. A whopping 650,000 bottles and some other formats produced. The quality is amazing for the volume, and it's also a good value.

Domaine A. et P. de Villaine

La Digoine Côte Chalonnaise Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018

I had the Villaine Chalonnaise Chardonnay years ago, and I finally got a hand on the Pinot Noir. Once again, the Chalonnaise delivers exceptional value packed with approachable flavors of red fruit, leather, spices, tinges of peppercorn, and clay. One of the easiest drinking Burgundies I've ever had, too. Lacks a bit of complexity in the finish, but nonetheless, outstanding wine. — 24 days ago

El Pintor

Joven Tequila

Fantastic bottle, smooth without being filled with fake sweeteners Store & Distillery notes as follows A True Joven with 3-4 yr aged anejo. Aromas of sweet tropical fruit, sweet veggies, pepper, pineapple and coconut. The palate brings a salt hit with Caspian, corn husk. No diffusion, clean texture. D&M Tasting Notes

A craft sipping tequila hand blended by certified Master Tequilero Guillermo Barroso Arnaud. The Master Tequilero certification is similar to a master Sommelier, but with the additional depth of expertise in distillation and chemistry to develop a specific style. There are currently only nine Master Tequilero's in the world.

Every step in the production process is very deliberate and selected for a specific reason in the art of the blend and balance of this true Joven. The bright agave flavor should be just as recognizable as the extra anejo tequila.

Single Estate Highland Agave, twice copper pot distilled, and blended with a 3-4yr extra anejo from ex bourbon barrels.

A light Crystalline filtration system is used to keep as much of the terroir and organoleptic properties as possible.

No diffusers, no added sugar, single estate agave only, and a very meticulous distillation process.

Tasting Notes: vanilla, sherry, oak at the front of palate, green tea and d’anjou pear on the finish, nice acidity. Blanco notes of agave still palatable in tandem with the barrel notes of the extra anejo. Distillery Notes
