Collection Val de Loire Rosé Blend 2020

Nose has crushed cherries & raspberries, ripe summer watermelon, steely notes and faint moist chalk.

Palate has tart raspberry, watermelon rind and fresh cherries. Nice acidity.

A fun wine for an almost 80°F day in the Berkshires, atypical for early April. I believe this to be our first 2020 vintage wine.

A blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc & Négrette. $12!

Nomine Amoris Santa Maria Valley Pinot Gris 2020

Central coast summers in a bottle! Strawberry rhubarb pie, complete with crust! Hint of vanilla and blood orange! Probably one of the best natural rosés I’ve had! — 4 days ago

Solid. Even keel with a very clean finish. Great “house” Champagne to have on hand. — 10 days ago

"J" Centgrafenberg Trocken Spätburgunder 2010

Unscrew and pour. Super savory: black cherry, coffee, earth, damp leaf. singed herbs. I tried to entice my in-laws with this (and it was a good pairing for dinner, I swear) but it stood next to a Clos Vougeot, which although from '11 was more forward. Oh well, I enjoyed this. On the palate: loam and black cherry and coffee toast with a soft tannic finish. — 16 days ago

J. Schram Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2011

Last of my cellars club high quality shipments, end of an era. Really going to miss wines like this one. 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir. Drank the whole bottle in one sitting with a bag of Boom Chicka Pop because that was the best tip I’ve received in the caves. — 7 days ago

Centgrafenberg Frühburgunder "J" Trocken 2007

Nose has ripe black cherry, blackberry, spring violets, vanilla, melted bittersweet chocolate and dry earth.

Palate has dried black cherry, ripe black currant, ripe plum, wet tree bark, molasses bread and under-ripe cherry, slightly tart with medium tannins.

Bottled under Stelvin closure, opened for slow oxidation 6H, then decanted 2H, more time appreciated. Notes to be updated.

24H Update:
Nose exudes ripe, sappy dark red fruits, just overrunning the Gabriel Glas, light (warm) molasses, brown bread dough and black cherry syrup reduction. Palate is crazy, all prior traits but with a sweet reduction and the acidity actually picked up. Moving this score from 9.4 to 9.5, likely one of the finest red German wines I've ever tasted. An equal to finely aged Burgundy wine.

Walter needs age then he can compete against everybody. But the age is critical.

SLY Tempranillo Blend 2017

Dang, love wines from Paso. They are so creative and have such talented winemakers. This is from Dusi family taking a nice spin on GSM but with Tempranillo, Grenache and Syrah. Super earthy and all kinds of delicious fruit. The balance and silk on the finish...mmm! — 17 days ago
