MSG Chalone Mourvedre Blend 2018

Rock n Roll Star by Oasis in a bottle. What a beautiful, pure taste of what real wine making is all about. Regret not buying more. — 4 months ago

Loire Valley Cabernet Franc 2015

What can you even say about a wine like this? You see Loire Valley Cabernet Franc and you get an idea of what’s coming. But this is a little different and it definitely ain’t for everyone. Right out of the gate, noting but straight up funk. I often say that I like my wines a bit funky but good gracious, this baby exceeds that. Moist earth, green peppers, sweaty undergarments, olive tapenade, and smoke on the absolutely insane nose. It’s so beautiful. In the mouth, slightly bitter fruit immediately reinforces the nose. Really nice cherry streak throughout the mid palate. As expected, this is medium bodied and dry. Elegant, it ain’t. It’s just not that kind of wine. She chose the dirty funk life a long time ago and is going to ride it out. Newports, smoked meat, black pepper, and herbs on the palate.
This is a terrific wine, one of the best representations of the varietal that I’ve ever had. And most people are going to hate it. It’s just too much for them. But you and I are different, aren’t we? Nothing fancy here. Nothing too deep. This is simple, stunning, dirty, and pure beauty in a bottle.

Robert Craig Winery

Affinity Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Sex in a bottle. The good kind. Everyone has their own favorite California winery, but for me there’s no doubt. It’s Robert Craig. Deep purple with cherry red undertones in the glass. How about this nose? It starts with ripe red fruit up top. Cherries and raspberries and fresh strawberries oh my! Warm spices and créme de cassis follow that up. The barest hint of vanilla tops it all off.

I love the funk. I live for the funk, I die for the funk. But that’s not the water that Robert Craig swims in. Completely eschewing dirty funk, this is a profoundly clean and immediate wine. Full bodied but with none of the seemingly innate flabbiness of other Cabernet dominated blends. Pure sexy sleekness instead here.

Chenin Blanc 2019

Fresh off the FedEx...laser focused, pure pleasure... imagine forgetting to sugar your fresh squeezed lemon/lime juice...then adding 50% of your usual. Pucker up and embrace the vibrant acidity, the lip-smacking medium weight, the 12% ABV, and the long 30 second finish. Not a great wine, but so much pure fun... and it “tastes so frigging good.” Bravo Hardy et al! — 3 months ago

Ok... maybe I wrote too soon. Some of the bright Lemonhead flavor shades into slutty, cheesy, mushroomy Funk...92-94.

Crozes-Hermitage Red Rhone Blend 2017

9.3

@Delectable Wine this is the red Crozes. Thanks!

Gorgeous nose on this new project from the Gauthier Brothere. Lovely, lurid, gamey, peppery, white pepper, cracked black pepper, huge granite, such complexity, really refined and well made. You can tell from first sniff there is a high degree of winemaking skill here. The nose is terrific. 9.3/9.4 verging. I love well made Crozes. Palate is a delight, superb purity and freshness and densely fruited but also dense minerals. So sappy and pure. Blackberry fruit, red berry fruit, sappy spices and gaminess. Bacon even. This is so well fruited and balanced between sauvage/game and pure unreal fruit on a granite background. Just so impressive. After air impressive sweetness and energy abound. Really terrific balance and finish.

Antle Vineyard Mourvedre 2016

Impromptu Mourvèdre face-off. Super crunchy red fruits with the classic D&R spice/incense. Pure and joyful but, incredibly, lost the battle on this night. — a year ago
