Collio Sauvignon Blanc 2019

This Sauvignon is tinted a very light gold, almost clear. The nose gives aromas more common to New World Sauvignon Blancs - grass, herbs, salinity. The grassiness is not, however, on par with, say, a New Zealand SB. It’s a little more restrained than that. On the palate, citrus minerality is the rule, with an extremely fresh acidity. The lemon-lime flavor comes back on the lengthy finish. Fish is a great pairing for this wine, something along the lines of a tuna salad or nicoise would be ideal.

Domaine Alain Burguet

Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2008

A rich cardinal in colour. Red fruits - mainly cherry with sappiness and Sous Bois. Quite fruit driven on the medium plus bodied palate - sweetish - delicious. Finishing with fine savoury tannins. Inherent power which will see the last one consumed in a few years. I don’t drink Grand Crus on a regular basis but it’s nice to see the step up in quality when one does. Wonderful balance with wonderful persistence and longevity. — 9 months ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Well hello there, it’s been awhile you sneaky vinegary bastard, this bottle is fucking corked. Giving it the community rating because this shit does happen and it’s not the winemakers fault. My rule for corked bottles no matter the occasion is to immediately switch to bourbon so cheers 🥃 — 5 months ago

J. Lohr Cardinal Classic Pinot Noir 2013

This was SO good. Decanted for about an hour but so complex, nice fruit but still dry, really nice aftertaste. I would SO buy this! This is cabernet sauvignon, stanford cardinal rule, governor's selection. — 7 months ago

I tend to agree with my buddy Matt Kramer who maintains that the single most reliably tasty wine in the world is New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. What that means to me is if you buy a bottle for $15 - $25 you almost always are going to get something that a) tastes like you expect it to and b) is delicious (assuming you like the way that NZ Savvy tastes). This here bottle is no exception to that rule with its passionfruit, green apple, and cut grass aromas and more of the same delicious green fruit flavors on the palate. The finish is all kiwi fruit and green apple and the acidity bright and mouthwatering. This was a press sample. — 8 months ago
