Rancho Chimiles Vineyard Pétillant Naturel Valdiguié

Pretty much a perfect pet nat.
Light salmon pink hue
Aromas of dried roses, strawberries, and watermelon that also come through in the palate — with yeasty, earthy effervescence.
I drank this 2 years ago and still think about it…

Rorick Vineyard Chardonnay

Such a favourite- flinty, great acid and balance — a year ago


Dealcoholized Wine Premium Sparkling White Blend

One of the best N/A wine offerings of any kind. With great taste, persistent bubbles, and natural acidity it can serve as the starter for everyone drinking or not. Only problem: I sucked it down way too fast! Not a bad problem to have. — 5 months ago

Tradition Sparkling Chardonnay - Pinot Noir Blend 2019

2019 NV. Super interesting stuff. Finesse and complexity of well made traditional method but completely distinct in style. Traditional citrus is mixed with slightly oxidative honey and tree sap, with a grippy, refreshing phenolic touch and an orange bitters complexity on the palate. Autolytic profile is not front and center, supports the forest-like freshness. Dosage is zero but you wouldn’t guess it, it’s in balance, not just trendy — 5 months ago

Château d'Issan

Margaux Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot Blend 2012

I know that 2012 wasn’t a perfect year but this still underperformed. Have a lot of nostalgia for D’Issan after Emmanuel Cruse (the proprietor) oversaw the Bordeaux tasting competition where my wife and I met. Very little fruit on the mid palate. Bit thin on the finish. Definitely left bank - the nose is very nice. Good pairing with beef tenderloin slow roasted but still a smidge below what I hoped. — 4 months ago
