La Corvée de Villy Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir 2017

I am biased here but I love what Thibault does with grapes. I have had several different wines of his and they have all been very enjoyable. This one is no different. Ripe red fruit just bursting with flavor. A bit of cola. A pinch of earth. Right up my alley. — 18 days ago

Reynvaan Family Vineyards

Stonessence Estate Syrah 2012

9.4

I’ve been a fan of Reynvaan wines for a few years now, but this is the first time I’ve had their Stonessence. Their “In The Rocks” bottle has been a favorite and while there are a lot of similarities between the two, I found this to have a more powerful profile, albeit a touch less funk driven aromatically. If you haven’t tried these wines but love Cayuse, these are up your alley.

Pop and pour. Compared to their other offerings, this is 100% Syrah, so nothing is co-fermented. That’s fairly apparent on the nose as it doesn’t have that intensely lifted profile...it still sports classic “Rocks” funk with peppered salami, potpourri, black olive and dark coffee grounds. This comes across darker and more black fruit driven than their other wines, lending more notes of scorched black cherries, teriyaki jerky, iron, and tar on the palate. Great use of stems/whole clusters. I followed this over two days and it was just as gorgeous on day two. Very nicely integrated. Likely in a peak drinking window where it should reside for a few more years easily.

Lucien Le Moine

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

2005. Opened with a strongly aged nose and felt a little beyond it years on first approach but after a few hrs in the decanter it balanced out and showed us some velvet and silk. Thank you Mounir! — 8 days ago

Great Walla Walla producer.

The Hess Collection

The Lioness Napa Valley Chardonnay 2017

Smooth as silk and beautifully buttery. I added a dash of this to a scampi and I propelled it to heightened levels. Just a dash and then drink the rest of the bottle. — 22 days ago

Ronchi di Cialla

Colli Orientali del Friuli Schioppettino di Cialla 2009

Velvet, crushed rose petals, blackberries, pine with frost upon it. What a rockstar bouquet.

Wow. Right up my alley. Well balanced. Fruit forward, sure, but the emphasis here is that undercurrent spice kick of star anise, black peppercorn, and nutmeg. All the right feels here. A brush of acidity, and just the right dryness to make you lick your lips.
