"J" Centgrafenberg Trocken Spätburgunder 2008

9.2

Nose has aged character of deep woodsy soil tones, dead leaves, spice and a hint of framing oak. Tree bark, flaming embers, dark cherry, brooding and layered. Palate is gorgeous. Juicy and complex with a firm mineral spine but gets more plush after 45 minutes. 08 is a firm vintage as it is but I still love this wine in this vintage. It’s firm yet focused and so fresh and energetic. — 9 days ago

J. Schram Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2007

9.5

This 50-year anniversary special bottling of 07’ is hands down the best sparkling not named Champagne that I’ve tasted.
The nose reminisces a great BdB with pear, green apple, citrus (mainly lime) peel, white flower, brioche, and hint of seashell. Initial taste follows the nose, then come grapefruits, ginger spice, pie crust, and chalky minerals. The palate is broad, savory yet refreshing, with creamy mousse playing nicely with penetrating acidity.
A really profound bottle.

La Belle Rêveuse Alamo Creek Vineyard Syrah 2018

So good. This taste like a quality Saint Joseph combined with a top notch sour beer. Snappy red and blue fruit, purple flowers, soil, cured meat, and botanicals. Crisp acidity, and easy but noticeable tannins. A cloudy ruby red/magenta in the glass. Delightfully funky and wild. — 13 days ago

Lumière Unfiltered Pinot Noir 2016

Purple-red, moderately extracted pigment, good clarity with minor residue (it is unfiltered). Hints of butter, wood and cola in nose. Bright acidity, a touch of soy-umami in the flavors. Slightly gritty aftertaste on initial pour (it’s unfiltered!) Still assessing as it opens up... Cola flavor emerges after ten minutes, barrel tar aroma after thirty. — 23 days ago

Cornas Syrah 2016

9.3

Just pulled this off the shelf in the cellar. Don’t even remember buying it. Meant to pull another Cornas. With it being on the younger side I was afraid it wouldn’t really show well. Wrong. Initially hit with some black olives but as it opened up black cherry started to appear. Smoky but not overwhelming. Tons of sediment and kinda bummed I didn’t put it through some cheese cloth. Very nice and would definitely buy more. — 19 days ago
