Day 4 in Napa in the books! Running a day behind on notes...Napa time runs slow AND fast!

Incredible stuff and a treat to try next to the ‘09. This has turned more honeyed and savory...hazelnut, baked bread, honeycomb, roasted macadamias with great depth and acidity.

@jesus g : Couldn’t agree more. Best domestic sparkler I’ve had to date. Thank you again.

@Hugh O'Riordan : This is outstanding. If you are curious to try, I suggest you jump on some!

Paso Robles Highlands District Lagrein 2016

Brambly cherry pie that still maintains high acidity with an earthy astringent finish. Big old world style wine that is uncompromised by new oak. — 3 days ago

Another year, another insane meet up with
@jesus g ! We had the pleasure of hanging out with him twice this time, once at the Davies tasting room and a second time when he gave us an awesome private, VIP like experience at the Schramsberg caves!

This ‘09 JSchram, which is their more Blanc de Blanc style, is young bit delicious. Lemon bar, apple crisp, cashew, meringue and and just beginning to show some honeycomb/honeyed melon notes. I decided I like the JSchram with more age and enjoy the Reserve at a younger age.

Alto Adige-Südtirol Gewürztraminer

Very refreshing and fruity. A bit fizzy. Very nice at an Italian restaurant In Tokyo after a week of no white wine! — 12 hours ago
