K Vintners

The Cattle King Upland Vineyard Syrah 2013

First time having K Vintners. Incredibly ripe with a strong backbone. Youthful. Reminds me of Paso Syrah. — 5 days ago

Carignan with plenty of garrigue and tannic backbone, needed the decant to settle — 2 days ago

Wasenhaus

Baden Gutedel

After an extended maternity break from wine, WE ARE BACK! And this one is delicious. Solid backbone and smooth blend. — a day ago

Bodegas Borsao

Cabriola Grenache Blend 2016

Wow what a nose! Intense blackberry jam and licorice. Very pretty. The palate is very well designed and quite a powerhouse : a monster of an acid backbone, a superlative width, a superb mouthfeel with a grain, a nice matter, an enormous mid palate with a tannic cannon made of grain and some dust, a very long finish with fruit and a bit of a tangy note. This is a powerhouse and a delight. — 5 days ago

Hirsch Vineyards

The Bohan-Dillon Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2013

Perfect New Year’s Day Wine to hopefully herald a better year... I love this wine it has such profound prettiness to it on the nose and on the palate! Flowers, cherries, and just enough earthy backbone ❤️ — 13 days ago

François Chidaine

Les Bournais Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2003

Intensity of dried peaches and nectarines. Has a gasoline type spectrum of aromatics. I even related it for a while to mezcal type intensity and character. Very deep and rich while brooding with mineral backbone bringing forth the fruit. Excellent — 14 days ago

Domaine Sylvain Langoureau

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

I should have waited a lot longer to open this. But have to say I wouldn’t buy another 2019. There was a lack of backbone on this wine. Hopefully just a bad bottle. — 3 days ago

Suavia

Soave Classico Garganega 2017

ESF
9.0

One of the nicer efforts in Soave showing ripe nectarine, white peach, beeswax, lanolin, citrus aromas and a strong vein of minerality mixed with crushed stones. Silky mouthfeel w/firm acidic backbone. — 12 days ago

Domaine Roulot

Les Meix Chavaux Meursault Chardonnay 2015

From the always lovely lieu-dit Meix Chavaux. There is a ripe opulence that is seamlessly balanced by signature Roulot kinetic energy and drive. Ripe orchard fruit, lemon verbena, flinty minerals, saline and matchstick reduction that blows off with a sufficient decant. There is great cut and delineation even in the ripe vintage. But we should expect nothing less from the great Jean Marc Roulot. Finishes long and intense strutting its mineral backbone and impressive focus. — 8 days ago
