Les Sorbets Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

John Howard
9.2

Cherry trees and bark, high altitude forest, raspberry coulis, white pepper, herbs, lightly floral. Again, agree with @Geoff Troup, more of a Rhône profile. — 7 months ago

Liquid Farm

SBC Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

Exactly what I want when I want a Pinot. Light and complex, with notes of red fruit and a lingering taste on the backend I can’t identify.
Drank with Frank, Betty, Geoff, and the most glorious San Clemente sunset.

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2009

Wellll this is my second favorite of the Champagnes I just got schooled in as part of the effervescence LA event I’m lucky enough to be attending for @Delectable Wine ! It is also Geoff Kruth’s first pick. What can I say... it is classic. Elegant. Toast and almost caramel on the nose. It reminds me of a toasty communion bread dipped in perfect church grape juice and I know that sounds basic but this is like...magical communion. I’d commune with it all day. — 2 years ago

Agro de Bazán

Granbazan Etiqueta Ambar Rías Baixas Albariño

Got this instead of txakoli and very happy about it! Tart, acidic, a bit of effervescence. Geoff likes it too! Pairing with Fri-Thai - beau Thai chicken and drunken noodles 💛

Geoff’s thoughts: like it, kinda tart and bubbly. Acidic and effervescent just like Linny!

Last one with Geoff was rather oxidized but this one is spot on. Like a vintage Champagne (ok stated like SG) and actually went very well with hot pot for year of the Pig. 2/5/19. Still good day after. A bargain. — a year ago
