Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

I had somehow overlooked this 14 at the back of the cellar! Drinking amazingly well. Tannins have beautifully integrated. Deep concentration without heft. A great job yet again @Mike Smith — 10 days ago

Ungeheuer Riesling 2015

Been about a year. Lovely, expressive nose, citrus, tangerine, pink grapefruit, salty minerals, an airiness, class and depth. Chewy, textured and super mineral. Wow. Awesome concentration and purity. Deep, mouth coating and very elite. Really expansive and pure. This has picked up weight and depth in a year. Chewy, dense and structured with lovely minerality and a playful citrus core. So so long. Fantastic. — 10 days ago

This El Cel is now awesome!! The nose in intriguing and the mouthfeel is my cup of tea. Lovely soft tannins, lots of concentration of dark fruit. Some cacao and coffee. A lot is happening in my glass, love it! — 5 days ago

Loibenberg Riesling 2013

This is a terrific Austrian Riesling. Age has helped it develop some complexity in the nose, where it shows deep ripe apples, some petrol notes, warm earth and mineral notes. Flavors are very deep, with dark-mineral infused deep and ripe fruit, very good concentration and acids. — 7 days ago

9.1

Bouquet of white peach and citrus with calcite minerals. A bit effervescent, and that signature northern Spanish acidity so beautifully balanced by a fruity sweetness; great concentration for a txakoli. A whole lot of pleasure for the money. — 16 days ago
