Wildflower Monterey Valdiguié 2017

I quite like this wine… the color is exceptional, almost neon! It’s a fresh young wine, the epitome of glou glou. Think Gamay. The 2017 vintage is the shit. — a year ago

Valle de Uco Malbec 2016

Paired this with some sick ribeyes on the big green egg. Was expecting this wine to be bigger, but that’s ok. The tartness cut through the fatty chunks of the ribeye. Neon purple on the rim. Long finish. — 3 months ago

Juhfark 2013

Alder Yarrow
9.5

There is really only one grape variety that I know of in the world that deserves to always have an exclamation mark: Juhfark! Or as I like to shout, Juhfaaaaaaaark! (pronounced you-fark). Grown only on the tiny little hill of Somló, an ancient underwater volcano, in Southwestern Hungary, it is among my favorite grape varieties and simply one of the world’s coolest wines. @sap_somlo is one of the best producers of it, coaxing out its bee pollen and chamomile scents and electric neon lemon, citrus peel, and yellow herb flavors, all layered on top of the deep volcanic minerality. The longer you let these wines age, the more they taste like rocks. Tired of the same old flavors in your white wines? Get thee some Juhfark! — 8 months ago

Blind Justice Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

2018 vintage. More old-school styled for this vineyard and none of the flash, lowered, tricked out, neon and spinner rims in the tasting profile. Back (hopefully) to the future! — 2 months ago

DDHIPA The Full Nelson

Cloudy yellow of old bones crowns the roiling trove. This one came in costume, as a peel reveals the sour ‘neon shades’ of its former life. Nelson Sauvin, you rascal! Prickly pear flavor suspended in a mucilaginous grapefruit, pomegranate, and lemon oil jell-o. Thin skin orange with pith, salty lime, peppery green grapes, and pine. Can’t quite put a finger on what makes this so dang enjoyable, but there it is. Sparkly, minerally, for sure, but tropical with crystalline pineapple, like a rocky wood that ends on a tropical beach. Eco-dichotomy. .
