Escherndorfer Lump Silvaner 2015

Erste Lage Silvaner from Franken, Oily texture and phenolic bitterness suggests some moderate skin contact. A delight with white peach, plums, and kumquat. — 22 days ago

'Mon Plaisir' Chardonnay 2016

Shay A

Got to pop some special bottles when my good friend Shawn came in to town!

My second bottle to pop of the evening. In my experience with PM, this seems to be the most elegant/finesse bottle I’ve had. Of guessing blind, I think I would have gone to burgundy. And it has sub 14 ABV! I always assume PM is ripe, rich and full bodied but this was restrained. On the nose it was very tropical showing stone fruits, mango, sugar crusted guava and ginger shavings. Reminiscent of Aubert’s Larry Hyde & Sons Chardonnay on the palate as the acidity is really energetic. Crushed limestone, powdered lemon bar and a cotton candy like sweetness toward the finish. No problem popping these now.

Lovely, minerally Chardonnay. Who knew VA could do this?! We had it with a Spanish fish stew with a touch of Harissa, and it was perfect. Purchased at Cork and Fork in Logan Circle. — 22 days ago

Hi Amy, I am a collector of Michael’s older (an newer) work. I also gather anything made from Williams Gap fruit. My question: did you just recently buy this or has someone been cellaring it since finding at Cork&Fork?

Freakshow Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Trying out my new Zalto Bordeaux glasses with Cali cab. This wine is easy peasy. It will not challenge you but sometimes that’s okay. Very ripe tannins and purpley fruit and there is a whiff of pepper to give a little edge. I have a feeling this may be a highly engineered act but I guess that’s why it’s a Freakshow. — 10 days ago

The blend Freakshow is better than the Cabernet Freakshow, so at least you picked the right one. The Freakshow Zin isn’t bad either.
The Earthquake series is a step up though for only a few dollars more
