Watervale Clare Valley Riesling 2010

Another banger from my parents poorly kept wine cabinet. At 9 years of age showing strong Clare Valley kerosene notes with strong acid backbone and light citrus tones. — 10 days ago

It was ugly, but it was a win! Great night at Staples & great wine at the Palms at L.A Live

Johnnie Walker

Double Black Blended Scotch Whiskey

In the JW lineup, this is now my entry point. I've always found the Red a little harsh (I enjoy everything neat), and maybe it's my advancing age, while I used to really like Black but now think it's too smokey. Palate evolution I guess...

Mellow peat, perfect barrel char, light honey, distant campfire smoke. Perfect just by itself and a cold whiskey stone.

I remember a day when my parents and or their friends pulled out the JWB, that was like whoa...the good stuff.

Firestone Walker Brewing Company

Union Jack West Coast Style IPA

Very drinkable IPA in a restrained style. As the name implies it’s more like an English IPA so it’s not super bitter. Well balanced all around. Perfect with a Ploughman’s with god quality cheese or fish and chips. I’m hungry now. — a month ago

Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2002


Thanksgiving lunch with full clan arriving. Really an excellent Cali Chard that’s like a grand cru white Burg. Complex nose. Great texture on palate. Long texture. What a buy. — 15 days ago


Cuvée Cinema Pinot Noir 2018

16.5/20 (91/100) Аромат уходит в чёрные ягоды: черешню и ежевики, есть ноты копченостей и ментола. Довольно высокая кислотность и мягкие, обволакивающие танины. Этот винтаж мне нравится меньше, чем 2016 и 2017, хотя чувствуется Единая стилистика, 2018 очень напоминает Германию. — a month ago

Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir

Big, broad, brooding style. Masses of red fruit, with strong savoury/mushroom/meaty notes. The palate is bursting with cherry and strawberry, but in a big style. Not shy. Earthy. Burgundian structure with real depth and earthy appeal. — 2 months ago

Tesselaarsdal Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir 2016

This wine is now starting to hit its stride and show some nice secondary flavours. Beautiful texture and very refined. Very Burgundian in style. Think Vosne. Love it. — 2 months ago
