Giant Steps

Applejack Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Destroyed this with pan seared duck breast in cherry sauce — random midweek home-cooked dinner — and it was delicious. Beautifully balanced, still with plenty of red fruit underlined by some cola and darker cherry. Seems to have a lot of life ahead of it. Could drink this all night. — 7 days ago

Little Giant Carneros Rosé of Pinot Noir 2018

Rosé of PN. Out-fucking-standing. Chris Dearden hits nothing but triples and HRs. Small production, some of the best wine values in America. — 19 days ago

Langhe Freisa 2014

The nose is a jolly green giant. Medium-firm tannins. Medium body. I thiiiink there are floral notes, but also we were drinking it on a patio surrounded by blooms so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Drank this babe with the most tender beef and it was splendid. Paired surprisingly well with asparagus, too.

Huge cherries. I mean Andre the Giant huge. Spice and licorice and lovely accessibly. So friendly. Red cherries. Amazing fruit. Sick nose. How is this so good? Palate is rich and ripe with wonderful structure and sappy black and red fruits and lovely hit of licorice. Spice on the finish as well. Terrific tannins and great acids. Good concentration. Terrific. — 15 days ago

Boich Family Cellar

Beckstoffer Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Wow!!! All I have to say is it is worth every penny!!!!The perfect opaque patina against the glass. The bouquet is exquisite. Lavendar and black licorice. The initial palate is delivering explosions of blackberry , dark currant, and black cherry. Just like the color of the wine. And my senses are going wild. Sight, smell, taste : this is a true indulgence. This is what I love about the St Helena area of California. In the middle comes the chocolate and the graphite soil not to mention tobacco and the sensation of brown moss on a giant oak. You can almost crunch this wine in your mouth. The finish is pure butter with a tingle on the tip of my tongue that makes me crazy for more. If you’re tired of the same old same old wine like I am, you must splurge for this amazing 2016, yes I said 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon from Boich family cellars. I promise it is worth every penny and you will not be disappointed. No, I have no affiliation with the winery but boy I wish I did! MASTERPIECE! Great job Boich family!!! I’m coming to California to visit your winery! — a month ago

@David L @Eric LaMasters @Carl Fischer : Jeff Ames is the winemaker here, I believe. I’ve heard good things about their wines.

Had the Chardonnay, wasn’t a fan. That’s why I asked. Thanks
