Perennial Vintners

Domaine Monier Perréol

Terre Blanche St. Joseph Syrah 2014

9.0

A perennial favorite and can be poped and poured with some bottle age. Dark fruit, bacon, pepper and spices. Robust fruit on the palate but balanced finish. Hard to stop drinking. — 21 days ago

The Rare Barrel

West of the MIssissippi Golden Sour Beer

The Rare Barrel and perennial colab. West of the Mississippi. Saison, limes, and greatness. I love these 2 breweries and this beer does not disappoint. The saison and funky Brett are awesome, then your palate is exploding with lime and tropical fruit. Finish is minutes long. I could smell this beer all night. — 9 months ago

Domaine Roulot

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2016

Perennial favorite. This one seemed a bit oxidized. More golden in color. Same notes of lemon zest and almond. A bit off. Still good. — 10 months ago

Arianna Occhipinti

SP68 Terre Siciliane Nero d'Avola Frappato 2018

A perennial favorite, lighthearted and fresh, juicy fruits with a grounding weightiness. Cherries and dark plums. — 5 months ago

Turley

Ueberroth Vineyard Zinfandel 2011

One of my perennial favorites and very sad to hear 2018 is the last vintage of it. First time I’ve drank with this much age and wow. Worthy the wait. Fruit is less jammy and more well integrated. — 6 months ago

Kosta Browne

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2011

Perennial favorite! Fruit forward. Smooth. Totally awesome! — 10 months ago

I haven’t enjoyed a dolcetto yet. It appears this could be the one to turn that streak around.

The Hilt

The Vanguard Chardonnay 2015

9.2

Re-committing to my long review backlog. This one is a perennial favorite for me, and Wayne does a great job from year to year with this central coast chard. More on the honey/peach side of the spectrum, with a light amount of oak and butter. Definitely one (like Aubert) that benefits from a bit of time in the glass and approaching room temp. — a year ago

Domaine Lafage

Tessellae Côtes du Roussillon Vieilles Vignes Grenache Blend 2015

Lafage was recommended in Food and Wine magazine as a perennial go-to for wines. Tesseallae is the Latin word for mosaic. This delicious red has a blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 15% Mourverdre and 5% Grenache Gris (a rare white grape.) The wine is aged for 12 months in concrete tanks and bottled unfiltered It’s round and velvety with a complex bouquet and flavors of strawberries, dark fruits laced with pretty floral and earth notes. Fruit flavors are lush and the finish is seamless. This beautiful wine has the ability to pair well with meats, charcuterie, lamb, duck, or rich stews. Robert Parker rates at 93 points. – Derek Brammer, Surdyk’s
