Domaine de Chevalier

Grand Cru Classe De Graves Pessac Leognan Red Blend 2018

2018 vintage. This is the red. Bright cherry and menthol in the nose. Light medium bod. Cocoa powder makes a cameo appearance early in the closing palate but that menthol is the stuff of good, classic horror movies. Chock full of pursuit und relentless. Best showing/vintage of the respective decade for this juice and that's saying something. — 3 months ago

Blithering Idiot Barleywine Ale

Medjool date color of reddish brown verging on ebon. Brief, solid, fluffy headmaster cameo, beige. Bowing slowly with brevity, leaving only a dark, inscrutable surface. Ripe bananas, and Ethiopian coffee, grilled and roasted beef, marinated in Port with edges of cracked black pepper. Fennel, rosemary and cocoa, raisins, cloves, ginger snaps all stirred in cast iron over slow flames of acanthus to make this dark story thick with candied deceits, smelling of dark chocolate delights. This one has sharp, sugary teeth of cubed ginger candy, lips of gingerbread, a tongue of dark brown sugar, caramel-chocolate, dark rum cake, eucalyptus, coffee liqueur, and sweet barbecue sauce before finishing with figgy treacle. Smooth and brooding; your destiny implied by its name. — 3 years ago

Heirloom Cameo Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2014

9.2

Limpid yellow. Ripe pear, Meyer lemon, vanilla and smoky minerals on the deeply perfumed nose, along with hints of jasmine and candied ginger that build in the background. Supple and well-concentrated, offering expansive citrus and orchard fruit flavors complemented by brioche and toasty lees nuances. The floral note repeats emphatically on the very long, supple finish, which is energized by a jolt of zesty acidity. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Feb 2018)

Vinyes Velles Priorat Garnacha Carignan 2009

Opened tight and funky-- like the bass in the Cameo hit "Word Up". After 40 min, it's mellowed and relaxed akin to "Always and Forever", or something else from Heatwave. Cinnamon, white pepper, mild anise on the nose, carrying forward to the palate. It's still tart, but probably best enjoyed now. Nice round mouthfeel, medium plus alcohol, very supple tannins. I've had this before, but this is perhaps the best thus far. Love it!!! 1 more bottle.

Ps there is even a milk chocolate note on the very back that resembles a Brunello of comparable age. I'm adding the +

Palmer & Co

Brut Champagne Blend

Briny lemon, dried apricot and hints of dried pineapple are eclipsed by ginkgo and light rye bread, cantaloupe and lime; Gardenia and white pepper with lillies. Exquisite mouthfeel, of tangerine, clementine, orange blossom, ripe lemon, creamy lemon panna cotta, white pomegranate seeds, olive cameo that dissipates into a sea spray and Northwest oyster with briny sweetness. #HappyNewYear #Champagne #growerschampagne #growersblend #bubbles #Palmerandcompany #Reims #brutréserve #brut #palmer #sparkler #frenchwines #france — 3 years ago

Cloudy and grey to red-brown Amber through the pour. Leesy-teasy. This voluminous lady sprung a shock white, unexpectedly pure pate. Cinnamon baked apple and caramel are soft suggestions initially. Barley and malt cameo as themselves with a whole jar of raw honey and ginger snap crumbles. These aromas are deceptive. She’s not that sweet, really. She snaps between a mineral texture and a pretzel bun with a Hawaiian bread middle. There is lingering almond butter after a briny lemon and a citrus tea that drags it all back. There is a decidedly German depth to the beer, which embraces a baked bread quality, but this is lean and sleek, sidestepping the heartburn of some styles. Hazelnut oil, almond flower, pecan, and sunflower seed persist in a lees-y postlude. #brauereimaxliebinger #unfiltered #zeppelin #germanbeerday #deutschland #Deutschebier #bier #beer #lees #strangebrew #gettheLedout #Hindenbeerg — 4 years ago

Dogfish Head Brewery

Oak Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout

Low-action top, and black black. Mocha coffee with a caramel creaminess, and a vanilla shot. Licorice, cocoa nibs, a motor oil sweetness with banana leaf, rosemary, s’mores, and burnt brownie. Here comes the vanilla as advertised, bordering on extract, with a licorice cameo, molasses, brown sugar syrup, heavy tobacco chaw/plug, into an exquisite date reduction. This one plays games with your mouth, plunging suddenly into darkness with feigned, scraping reluctance then rebounds into jimmying oak, giving it super strength. And a fiery melted candy house. — 3 years ago

Mineral Springs Ranch Pinot Noir 2016

Delectable Wine
9.4

Glistening magenta. Displays expansive, spice- and mineral-accented red/dark berry preserve scents that take on incense and lavender flourishes with air. Juicy, seamless and energetic on the palate, offering densely packed black raspberry, cherry liqueur and exotic spice flavors that show sharp delineation and back-end thrust. Finishes impressively long and smooth, with resonating red fruit, floral notes and velvety, harmonious tannins that make a cameo appearance. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2019) — 3 years ago
