Kröver Kirchlay Spätlese Trocken Riesling ** 2016

Nose is pink grapefruit. Sweet minerals.

Palate is pink grapefruit. Gods lemon soda. Almost sweet. Delicious.

This is drinking more delicious than profound at this point. Nothing wrong with that.

As this opens just this candied river rock made from petrified grapefruit / mosel slate. Sheeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiit. So good. I fucking love Riesling.

Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Trocken 2017

Classic dry Riesling sourced from a minuscule plot (.8 ha) within an iconic vineyard. Serious weight on the palate with layers of green apple, honeyed apricots, and crushed stone. So much complexity and life in this $30 bottle. Certified biodynamic. — 11 days ago

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2018

For my palate this is a big QPR overachiever. Sleek and juicy, but poised to display richness with a wash of cinnamon over crystalline maraschino and a tangy pomegranate-laced bead of acid. I probably could have found a better pairing for boneless ribeye with shiitake and shallot pan sauce, though. 🤷🏻‍♂️ — 9 days ago

Cuvée Prestige Côtes du Rhône Villages Cairanne Red Rhône Blend 1999

Alex Lallos

Perfectly aged! Bramble and sauvage. Medium dark ruby red with no bricking. Aromas of iron, cracked pepper and smoked meats. Quite fruity on the palate with a long finish (dried herbs and dried red fruits). Really beautiful right now. No need to age any longer but it doesn’t seem like it’s going to die anytime soon either — 2 days ago

Synthesis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Smells lovely - finessed fruits

Classic Cali wine here - precise fruits, Cherry, raspberry, crab apple. Focused, with little (thankfully) of that new oak vanillin. Gripping tannins play well with the cran acidity. Lingers on for a loooong time.
11th anniversary wine for me, and the Mrs.

Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay 2013

First time with this wine coming from Bald Mountain Vineyard, aged 14 months 40% new French Oak. Local grocery wine department was giving these away at $10 per bottle; given the age and 13.5 alc. I decided to try it!

Not disappointed; presents with golden apples, pear, guava, honey, toasted almonds, chamomile tea, cheese rind, lemon balm and very soft oak.
I imagine in its youth this wine might have been more buttery but with a few years it has evolved nicely! Consider QPR I would pick up a few more of these....just for fun!

Jessie James Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Lyle Fass

This is such a ridiculous wine. Nose is so high toned and also luxurious. Beautiful herbals, high toned sour cherry, cherry flower and mid season cherry. Floral, some terrific spice. This has greatly improved on PNP aromatically at this point. Gorgeous, clear, precise and super focused nose. Just the most stunning complex spices imaginable. Really impressed. Palate is tight as expected but it’s like 10% more open than it was earlier this year. But it is all there perfect harmony. Amazing fruit and density yet elegant and light on its feet. Big, noble tannins, so so precise and fine with just unreal clear and focused cherry fruit of the mid season and sour kind. Needs mega air but man will this go places. I’ll be back. As this slowly opens the fruit sweetens. The nose gets more floral and much more harmonious. Awesome inner mouth aromas and terrific spice and energy. Now we are taking. — a month ago
