Patience Vin de France Gamay

Amazing low intervention Gamay. Crazy complexity of spice notes, slate earthiness, and mellow sweet cream finish. Nose has more spice notes. Super cool. Let it decant. — 9 days ago

Les Vins Pirouettes Pinot Noir 2018

Funky super natty Pinot noir from Alsace. Violets sour cherry and amaro Montenegro. — 20 days ago

Château Côte Puyblanquet Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Nose: earth, earthworm, alcohol, old wood, mulberry, nettle. Subtle savoury herbs. A dash of calendula. Beef.

Taste: savory, soup (herbs), toasty on the finish. Fruit quite restrained. I am not convinced it has aged well, but I do enjoy it. Makes me want to eat beef stew. 89-90. EDIT: a little more (red) fruit emerges with air and improves it.

Tschida Non-Tradition Grüner Veltliner

This was Minute Maid lemonade mix, violets, and the smell of freshly sanded wood. Really fine acidity and surprising depth. I could sniff these for hours. I kinda did. I think @Carla Hine thought I was weird for doing so. — a month ago

@Carla Hine Has a good palate and nose. But I agree, some wines I only want to smell...

@Doctor No @Severn Goodwin hahahaha. I didn’t think it was weird. We were all trying to puzzle through it, while also trying to come up with the most obnoxious/twee aromatic note we could. I think I settled on acacia resin. 😆 It was a great bottle that kept me coming back for more.

I once sniffed an oil can at the edge of the Black Sea for months only to realize my true love contained nothing but the mysteries of Caspian Sea foam. The answer is never what it seems.

Himmelauf Erden Zweigelt Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 drinking great in 2022, had time to settle down and still show zing and fruit. Outstanding effort from a really good winemaker and pioneer. — 22 days ago
