Nose has dried cranberry, ripe cherry, red currant jelly, dried roses and old oak bark
Palate has dried tart cherry, dried cranberries, chalk dust, over-ripe strawberry with medium, but fine tannins. Doing quite well tonight; Slow oxidation for 2H then decanted 3H.
Pre-birthday dinner for our dear COVID bubble friend; we've only allowed one of our close friends into the house for almost the past year, tonight we're celebrating that he's one year older than me. 😉 — 23 days ago
Opened at 3pm, capped until 8pm. What was tightly wound upon original taste, unfurled beautifully to show explosive aromatics of intense high toned red fruit, exotic spices, fresh violets and just a touch of woodsmoke that’s followed by a cool mineral infusion with fine grained tannins.
The wine shows such class, focus and vibrancy, and I love the elegance of the vintage in combination with the vineyard. Takes it to another level, and it’s only going to get better. I’m definitely a big fan of Petits Monts. Along with Malconsorts, it’s hard to contest that there’s no better premier cru in Vosne Romanée than those two, located spitting distance from Richebourg and La Tâche, respectively. — a month ago
Deep Ruby with aromas of black berry fruits, herb, earthy spice and flinty notes. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry and black cherry with notes of black pepper, earthy herbs and tobacco. Fine tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit and mineral character. — 3 days ago
Joseph Jewell Rosé of Pinot Noir 2019: Dry. Crisp. Refreshing. Gorgeous pink salmon color with a mouth-watering, fruity taste of strawberry, watermelon & grapefruit. No better way to celebrate California’s reopening (No mask requirement!) but with this perfectly balanced, small production Rosé of Pinot Noir! Cheers to pure summer in your glass & cheers to a new day🍷 — 6 days ago
Выпито у Вадима Гитлина вечером 06.06.21 после визита в Пильницу семьи Ботеновских. Дома выпили 3 бутылки разных новозеландских совиньон бланов , а затем я рванул в гости к Вадиму. Ему этот молодой пино нуар 2019 года весьма понравился - видимо , это вообще его сорт винограда. Мне - спокойно. Очень хорошо поговорили по бизнесу. — 15 days ago
A last minute PnP. I have not opened many ‘05’s￼￼ given my experience early on. You could tell there was great material but they were not providing drinking pleasure. A nose of black cherry with some spice hits your nose immediately. In the mouth a silky combo of of black and red fruit, spice and smooth but present tannins. Upside with time, for now I will stick to opening my ‘05 Village wines . — 25 days ago
