Clos du Joncuas

Gigondas Rosé Grenache Blend

Light brite. Bright and not ever so light! It has that Grenache hit that makes this fun and not just another white wine masquerading as a rosé as it is the salmon color that says it is serious. the lime, tangerine, shell, wetted (in your luxe shower) pumice stone and custard bits take me home. Literally and figuratively I’d come home to this wine. I’d take it home and bed it on the regular — 20 days ago

Wait they make rose? Must try. Love the rouge despite the label looking like Donald Trump’s powder room

@Matt Perlman hahaha it is very much powder room un-chic. I’ve had the rouge too, good stuff!

Torial

Sonoma County Red Blend 2016

Deep ruby. Nose of red fruits and oaky berries. Full bodied palate yields dark red fruits and a bit of plum. Medium tannins. Medium acidity. Structured well enough for food. Maybe good for a sipper as well. A very well made reb blend (Zinfandel, Grenache, Carignan) from the Wagner family. Drink now. — 12 days ago

Calcaires Grenache-Cinsault Blend 2017

L’Anglore lite!! All juice! Fresh cherries and crunchy red fruit. Couldn’t have paired it better with spicy tomato tripe pasta and burrata. Great find of a wine. — 2 days ago

So....@India Okoh wants to get all the labels and model them in SA. I’m down.

Deep purplish red. Fruit forward nose with some violets, baking spices and blackberries. Full bodied with medium tannins (6/10). Great earthiness on the palate with black and blue fruits, spices and a little herbal. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2026.

Grenache-Syrah Blend 2007

9.2

Dinner at RARE Steakhouse.

Deep garnet red in appearance. Well rounded nose with layers of spices, red currants, reductive blackberries, a little funky, black olives and damp leaves. Medium tannins (6/10) and medium plus bodied. Rich palate coated with a tomato undertone. Attack of anise, tapenade, black currants and a touch of black pepper. Long and structured finish. Drink till 2021.

First Kongsgaard wine, was hoping for the Hudson Syrah but still very excited to try this out. Made up of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah. Thank you Chris for helping us through the wines!

$$$$ - Purchased at RARE Steakhouse in Washington, DC for 50% off bottle night (every Sunday) for $127.50. Average retail is around $112.00.

Château de Trinquevedel

Tavel Rosé Grenache

And I shall continue to sing Trinquvedel’s praises. Zingier than the last vintage or so but still with that underlying richness and pavement of smooth river-washed stone. My gosh, Tavel. You should marry Trinquevedel. — 4 days ago

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum : I haven’t had Top or Fulldraw. I’m assuming you think they are comparable to Booker while also not requiring a minimum purchase/membership?

Well you can get Booker anytime on the secondary market for less or at Release price. Top & Fulldraw are up & coming so I like to get in at the beginning,
