"J" Centgrafenberg Trocken Spätburgunder 2006

One bottle was unfortunately cooked but the second was spot on, with elegant and spiced red fruit and floral nuances, full midpalate and good length with some firmness to the tannins on the finish. Lovely wine and one of the best Spatburgunderen I’ve had — 15 days ago

Collection Val de Loire Red Blend 2015

Took a chance on this unusual red from Loire: unique varietal composition & bottle format, but delicious nonetheless! Fairly dark inky richly extracted w/concentrated aromas of red fruit literally up & down the spectrum: tart cherry, cranberry, ripe bing cherry (and sour cherry), some raspberry couli all mingled with white pepper, clay & subtle vein of minerality. I found it very complex & engaging if a bit disjointed when looking at interplay of acidity & tannins... — 8 days ago

Wednesday Wine Committee. Great hosting by Gavin. 1 sparkler, 4 whites, 4 reds and 2 dessert wines. All served blind as usual.

Roasted chestnuts, cinnamon, old raspberry fig and a surprising amount of heat on the nose and palate. Shocked the alcohol is that prevalent at this age! Mellowed a bit slightly in the glass, and the added notes of graham cracker and potpourri became noticeable. I called this 40yr port.

@Hugh O'Riordan @David T : This was very enjoyable, but the alcohol was still quite noticeable...in fact, it almost dominated the wine! Not sure time will erase a lot of it, but there was good dark fruits and graham cracker still lingering here.

Thirst quenching and mouth watering. At the end of the bottle I always feel like Jack Sparrow asking why the rum is always gone. — 3 months ago

Finest Reserve Porto Port Blend

This Port's nose carries plenty of big red and black fruit, with the characteristic notes of brown sugar, caramel and earth. The palate is fruit forward with a zingy acidity and firm structure.

So far after some years, this is my favorite sub-$20 Cab. Smooth with a nice finish. — 4 days ago

Strata Pinot Noir 2016

I contain multitudes and so does J. Especially the STRATA a wine as layered as the soil it comes from but way more elegant than dirt. It’s more like one of those patterned sand gardens someone raked. Berry rich but light, fills your mouth without coating it. Finish goes onnnnn. Also pairs with a certain favorite layered food tbd. — 2 days ago

Rioja Tempranillo 2008

Leather, violets and earth on the nose. Dark cherry, tobacco and mushroom on the pallet. Soft tannins and long finish. Better the second day. Great QPR ($30), especially for a Gran Reserva Rioja and an over ten year old vintage. Just picked this one up a few weeks ago. — 8 days ago
