Borne Of Fire

Pyramid Valley Vineyards

Field of Fire Chardonnay 2015

This is wonderful. Full and round. Mouth filling with great body and length. I note it is now quite expensive which is no surprise. Last of the 2015 in my cellar. — 24 days ago

Cantina Priorino

Viola Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2013

Straight fire. It’s been a few years since I have had this and once again this doesn’t disappoint. Real Italian river rock acidity with elegant cherries and red fruit. Lots of the acidity on this. Some definite natural figs after it sat for a bit. Highly highly recommended especially for the price point. — 15 days ago

As it aired out, the fig became dominant and the red fruit passed eventually. It was open for a long while and it’s structure fell apart (bit a big deal for an older wine). Interesting to note though. Right when I opened it up there wasn’t any of that fig but mostly red fruit and screaming acidity. Still love the wine especially for the price point!

Gun Metal Riesling 2019

That’s some apropos naming right there. You got some green apple rounded out with pears and like a squeeze of pomelo. Take all that and dunk slab of metal and a granite flint with just the right touch of petrol to fire off those taste buds. I imagine this would taste amazing as a an accompaniment to shrooms. I mean I wouldn’t know... — 2 months ago

Domaine Roulot

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2010

Wonderful. Salty. Concentrated.

Nose is that epic lemon flower. A kiss of smoke from a lemon fire. Jesus Elite level mineral lemon fresh stream. Fuuuuuuuuuuck.

Palate is amazing. Mineral. Lemon essence. Wow.

Ridiculous! It might be the best taste of Spanish wine I’ve ever had. Zesty, fire inducing, red berry banga! Buying a bunch more of this — a month ago

Vini Viti Vinci

Bourgogne Aligoté 2018

Aligote in a sundress. Tropical music and live fire dances. Like reduced clementine syrup with pulp of green mango. Also hot flint, smokey peach and green papaya. Explosive fruit flavors flipping little light switches in your head - sour apricot, syrupy canned peaches, and sweet clementine. — 11 days ago

G.D. Vajra

Kyè Langhe Freisa 2013

My wife wanted to buy me an interesting wine as a Valentine’s Day gift and chose the 2013 G.D. Vajra Kye Freisa. I’ve tasted a lot of the Piedmontese grape varietals, but never Freisa until tonight.

After a decent decant, the Kye, being a dark ruby color, was a deep, rich wine with notes of roasted strawberry, wild blueberry, black plum skin, rolled tobacco, white pepper, blood orange, dried herbs and hot asphalt. The wine initially seemed a little wild, earthy and gamey, but that blew off after a bit. Structurally, the Kye was medium plus body, medium plus tannin, high acid, and had a fairly long finish. Delicious wine that paired well with a fire roasted tomato bolognese with rotini.

R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

The wines from Maria Lopez de Heredia are Riojan by the instruction manual and are also completely saturated with the soul of a little fire cracker of a woman so lovable I just want to be friends with her. Can we be friends?

My 2006 is a blend of elegantly restrained moderately extracted Tempranillo, Garnacha, and treated oak - flavors and aromas you can start to connect across the LDH portfolio.

Cherries and dried strawberries, a bed of mint and basil. On the palette, a drawback from fruit to high acid mineral salts. Then into darker cherries, prune, rosemary, mint, and saddle leather. Bravo.
