Hyde Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Enticing Pinot. Intense burgundy color with baked red cherries and leather notes on the nose. The pallet has soft fruit, bright acidity which is beautifully balanced with earthyness that just keeps you salivating way beyond the finish. Slight hints of cocoa and oak of the mid pallet as well. Quintessential Carneros Pinot, but then again, I’ve loved most Hyde Vineyard wines I’ve tasted. — 10 days ago

Le Tertre du Bosquet Sauternes White Bordeaux Blend 2019

Very nice Sauternes with delightful balance of fruit, flowers, sweetness and unctuousness, plus sufficient acids to bring it all together. Quite a delicious sipper. This was the very last bottle of Sauternes I could find at my local BevMo in Santa Monica, and it was just a half bottle at that. I should really go back to the Wine House or Wally’s for my wine purchases but this tells me how under appreciated Sauternes is in the U.S. A pity.
I enjoyed the 2019 vintage with homemade chicken liver pâté on toasted brioche.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Very wrongful but very necessary pairing. Paul Hobbs Napa Cab with “on the fly” turkey avocado sandwich. Intense ruby color with cocoa, oak, tabaco, dark fruit, cassis and leather on the nose. The pallet is full bodied and dry with medium high tannings, medium acidity and high alcohol. It feels like simple elegance: naked fruit with only the basic oak cloak, and a hint of dark chocolate to accentuate it all. What can I say? This is drinking, necessarily, on point. — 21 days ago
