Vin Santo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2004

Nice bottle to finish the weekend. Killing it, but still too young. Next bottles should be post 2020. Great leather and toasty notes, mild oxidation, great balance. Color is like a light tawny port, but more red, still translucent, and an intriguing come hither vibe... We drink Vin Santo so infrequently, but wow do I miss this bottle, this producer is a star.

Getting back to this bottle after a seven day delay...Wow! Somehow it picked up more acid, fruit and the tawny port-like nose is awesome. Glad we still have a few bottles in hiding.

Contra Costa County Red Table Wine 2017

Alder Yarrow

There’s this expression that has arisen in the wine industry in the past decade - “crushable” or “smashable” wines, wines that All but demand you drink another glass and another until you realize sadly that you’ve drunk the entire bottle and you desperately want another. I’ve had my share of such wines, but this is my new favorite “gimme the whole bottle” font of deliciousness. @ownrooted has hit it out of the park with this mixed-black field blend of 1920’s-planted vines in decomposed granite sand. Berries, herbs, earth and an incredible saline kick gives this wine mouthwatering “come hither” appeal. I wish I had 24 more bottles. — 7 months ago

"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2015

Big Bojo. Yeah fruit. Come hither Cali Can drinkers. Come swinging out of the gate (maybe a wee touch of VA?) but settled down and came together after a few hours in the decanter. Does not make me want to start opening my 14s. — 4 years ago


Schlossberg Erste Lage Grüner Veltliner 2012

Alder Yarrow

About tine to open this up and drink it, having picked it up on my visit to the estate about 7 years ago. Starting to go to that place that Grüner goes with time, putting on heft and a touch of sweetness as butterscotch pudding and creme anglaise meet candied lemon peel, roiboos and jackfruit (flavor, not smell) in a creamy silky package that says, “come hither.” — 4 months ago

I was looking forward to this and it let me down. #fruitbomb Lacks subtlety to me. Too "in your face" for me. I need more "come hither" than this. Don't give it up so easily. — 4 years ago
