Jalu Sparkling Apple Grape

Fable continues to impress me. So much funk. Tart apples, crabapple, wax, honey, melon, barnyard, hay, with a tart cherry candy finish. Changes over a few hours. Fascinating. — 11 days ago

Pierre Brisset

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018

Perfect Bourgogne rouge.

Nose is elegant. Some lilacs.

Palate is delicious fresh fruit. Good grip but not so much it’s annoying or making me want to age it. Fresh raspberry / light wild blackberry crushed in your hands with lilacs. Almost like a cote rotie thing going on.

Damn! Brisset. You are the magic man. Man. Wow.

What you want ina Bourgogne rouge. All I need is a bunch of French folk smoking in my house and some Saucison Lyon and lentils.

Billionaires should buy this and have it with proper roast chicken. No better wine on earth.

Drinking this wine is like viewing the best still life ever. Both are something every artist has to make. But the best version is still a thing of beauty even if it’s a dead rabbit , 4 carrots, a leek and a potato.

Landslide Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Had this in June 2021 and it was the showstopper. We did all the reserves, special lots, etc.. 2006 Landslide crushed them all. It has plenty of aging left to do, but don’t drink it too young. I see some other (older) reviews on here and I feel genuinely bad for those folk.

Incredible structure and power in the glass. A velvet hammer approach of cassis and blackberry, vanilla, with briar and chocolatey coating.

I even compared this next to a 2006 Alexander Valley Silver Oak and this won in a… wait for it… LANDSLIDE.
