Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.

The Fantesca property on Spring Mtn is gorgeous, and their tasting room at the winery is stunning. Really enjoyed getting to try more of their wines.

Our visit ended with our wonderful hostess giving us a bottle of champagne to take to dinner. A very enjoyable and easy drinking rosé that has a little bit of all your looking for...strawberries, gummy red fruits, chalk, limestone, toasted scone with black cherry spread a touch of sweetness toward the finish. A perfect pairing with Bistro Jeanty’s puff pastry topped tomato soup! One of our favorite restaurants in the valley!

Bonneau du Martray

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 1996

Out of magnum. Medium gold and notably darker than the 96 Raveneau I had the previous night. Earthy sweet nose. Notes of apricot, tan spice, a little ginger. Rich in the mouth. Sneaky acidity. Gave it lots of air. This was a tad bit off in terms of its presence and performance, but I wouldn’t call it premox given its 24 year old age. — 8 days ago

Caymus Vineyards

Suisun Valley Grand Durif 2017

Doing a wine pairing at Carrabbas with Caymus wines. This one is a bit spicy for me especially with Italian sausage and rigatoni, would be much better without a spicy pairing. — 12 days ago

Domaine Coche-Dury (J.F. Coche Dury)

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2006

Very pure and intense at the front. Piercing spearmint, slatey minerality and punchy lemon notes. Restrained still but incredibly focused and delineated. Still quite tight but sheer class. Masculine, refined and sophisticated. — 8 days ago

Domaine François Raveneau

Valmur Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2008

A gorgeous nose. All oyster shells, limestone, salinity, hints of lime, greengages, peter. Very poised, saline and cool-blooded. On the palate it is super sophisticated. Very precise floral notes. Rockpool, mellow citrus with super fine balancing acidity. This is deep and profound but pretty light on its feet. A beautiful calm vintage. — 7 days ago

That was our experience. Kind of phoning it in.

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2013

A really big and tropical nose. Loads of zesty and punchy citrus with hints of pineapple and passion fruit. Explosive mid palate of dense and tense fruit with great acidity. Very big and action-packed for a 2013. A long way ahead and a lot of fun — a day ago
