Alder Yarrow

Older bottles of Chianti are some of the wine world’s unknown treasures. Everyone is happy to age Brunello but you don’t see many people putting away Chianti in the cellar. And they’re missing out. If you can find old bottles you can sometimes get them for a song, as I did a bunch of these from @garagiste_wine. You want to talk about punching above your weight?!? These suckers are classy AF. Dark fruit with leather, a touch of graphite and earth. Great acidity still, decant and watch them shine. 1996 Terreno “Riserva” Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy. ⁣ — 3 months ago

She Can

Californie Rosé Blend

I’m always up for testing out cans in the name of eco-friendliness (lighter shipping weight n all). This one is surprisingly impressive for a can, with grapefruit, white peach, golden cranberry, and freshly baked shortbread cookies on the nose. The palate is ripe and round with peach liqueur, Mirabelle, grape, lychee, and mango on the palate. Refreshing and interesting and not too stiff on the alcohol like many available affordable pinks. — 8 months ago

DDHIPA The Full Nelson

Cloudy yellow of old bones crowns the roiling trove. This one came in costume, as a peel reveals the sour ‘neon shades’ of its former life. Nelson Sauvin, you rascal! Prickly pear flavor suspended in a mucilaginous grapefruit, pomegranate, and lemon oil jell-o. Thin skin orange with pith, salty lime, peppery green grapes, and pine. Can’t quite put a finger on what makes this so dang enjoyable, but there it is. Sparkly, minerally, for sure, but tropical with crystalline pineapple, like a rocky wood that ends on a tropical beach. Eco-dichotomy. .
