Vice Versa Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

A classic VV from Patrice and co, with lots of tannic structure and smooth notes of pack and dark fruit. I intentionally opened this bottle VERY young but enjoyed it with friends all the same! — a month ago

Viñedo Chadwick Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

Its not that often that wine and food really elevate each other but this Chadwick 2008 and Beef with home made Stroganoff was a match made in heaven.
The pepper and sweets in the wine pushed the sauce next level and vice versa.

Weingut Roterfaden

Württemberg Trocken Lemberger 2018

Wine 5/12 (Lemberger vice versa Blaufränkisch)

Nose has under-ripe black cherry, moist Granitic soil, cherry reduction sauce and wood smoke

Palate has plum skin, tart blueberry, blackberry with minor minerality, light acidity, medium tannins and a medium finish.

Best Lemberger I've had, a very nice effort!

Once again it is notable that I have made one full trip around the Sun earlier this week. We had our small, social bubble team to the house for celebrating my getting older and somewhat less flexible in advancing age...Whatever will be done when I creast 50? Well, at least it's several years until needing manage that concern.

We enjoyed well-salted Ribeyes (Kinderhook Farm - Valatie, NY, prepared 48h in advance), turning to a beautiful medium-rare after a mere 12m of grill time and smashed, small red potatoes with capers (yeah try it, don't judge me yet). None of the bottles were particularly planned as 'steak wines'; we didn't care as it really was a wine nerd-fest of grapes/regions, from Burgenland, Austria to Brittany, France. Wine and food were on individual plateaux today. This was the vom Boden Spring Experience case, expertly curated by Stephen Bitterolf, and well received by our tasting crew.

I know the area but really never warmed up to that Grape we will see what the future brings when I can get back and visit.

Le Petit Vice Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Short Rib wine. 👍🏼
Winery notes,

Unique circumstances helped create the monumentally impressive 2013 Le Petit Vice. Proprietor Patrice Breton worked with Paul Hobbs and Mike Smith in the beginning, and finished the wine with the help of Philippe Melka, and Shawn Johnson… Four of Napa Valley’s most accomplished winemakers.

Aged for 22 months in Taransaud and Marques French oak barrels,

2-3 minute sear on each side at 500-550. Perfect 👌

Prime cut makes a difference. Not a chew fest like supermarket meat.

I have never heard of Taransaud or Marques French barrels but if I go after a master of wine probably should know all the barrels 🤔 any which way sounds like it was a good wine 🍷

Vertus Coeur du Terroir 1er Cru Champagne Blend 1999

Honey nut cheerios, juicy apple, sweet herbs, dough, chalk. There’s a honeyed note to it all and a nice chewy texture. It finishes short, but the snapshot of an aged champagne is there. I liked the strong autolytic components. Thought the dosage seemed about right, curious if less would bring more length or vice versa. Bottles 4/2000; 7/2018 disgorgement: 3.5 g/l dosage — 4 months ago

Rinomata Cantina Tombacco

Riserva Rosso Biferno Montepulciano 2014

White chocolate macadamia lingonberry on the nose, mint chocolate chip, cranberry compote, unwhipped heavy cream on the palate. Strong tannins, velvety texture, super balanced, everything works in harmony. Showcases the flavors in a diversity of food beautifully and vice-versa. Having with nettle pesto chicken and kebab shrimp. — 9 months ago
