Complex and multi-layered. Lots of fruit — 2 months ago
18’ Fulldraw Drift- Grapefruit￼, lime, white peach, floral, fennel, medium acidity & minerality ,medium-bodied. Drinking perfect!
Paired nicely with crab cakes. Simple that good. Edit- Stood it up for 1/2 day. Drinking better as the night went on. Needed to warm up. A few great years in it. — 5 months ago
Maybe the pettiest white wine in the glass I've seen, hauntingly pale. It's got great acid, lots of tart peach, beautiful texture -- feels like it keeps changing long after a sip. I'd lodge where this Naomi lodges, if you catch my drift. #oldtestamentjoke — a year ago
Выпито 21.02.21 поздно вечером за ужином японской кухни. Этот немецкий рислинг урожая 2018 года прекрасно оттеняет суши и сашими. Сегодня я сделал 2 ночных дайва подряд и думаю завтра сдам экзамены на night and drift diver. — 3 months ago
Nose has ripe plum, mashed blackberries, dark chocolate powder, strawberry jam on leather, molasses, molasses cookies, wet soil, nutmeg and vanilla bean.
Palate has blackberry compote, black cherry reduction, partially dried plum, wet baking spice, wet+dry leather, dark chocolate shavings, (light) oak/vanilla influence remains. Extended finish, really starting to pick up incredibly at 3-4H in the decanter.
Paired with Allen Bros. ribcap (USDA Prime version) tonight, unfortunately our grill has a 4ft. snow drift in front presently so the best I can muster was a super hot cast iron pan from the oven, then onto stove with lots of butter and in 7m total we had beef to die for...Which I had some competition for dining this evening.
This bottle was a very generous gift from my West Coast brother @David T from earlier in the year. My work travel schedule was hectic and never found a good time to settle in on a weekend with the wine or pairing, until now. (I've lost track of the amount of COVID tests I've done in the past 5M, but all have been negative 🙏 to date.) A fabulous gift to enjoy now that I'm hopefully relaxing for the next 2w...
Happy Holidays to everyone.🎄 — 5 months ago
This Super Tuscan blend includes Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The bouquet is intense but you know it’s going to be terrific. Long legs drift slowly down the glass. This Tuscan sourced red has flavors of blackberry and spice, and the finish is the real reward. Fantastic!! — 3 months ago
Bought this on sale at our store and it is a wonderful blend. — 7 months ago
Pearly spicy pear... so fresh and so clean clean. Dry with just enough sweet bite. Clearly I don’t know how to speak wine notes but you get my drift... 😂🙏👏 — a year ago
This is the drift rows single vineyard cab (oakville 88 vineyard). Virtual tasting with Justin and Andrew. They made this different than the typical hunnicutt big and rich style. They picked a little earlier for a more ageworthy balanced wine. Nice minerality and dark cherry. 93-94+. Would like to see this in 10 years but you can drink it now with a decant. — a year ago
