"La Rouge" Poulsard Arbois 2018

Now we’re talkin— must have had at least 3 or 4 bottles prior to this, & they were all mute. Completely expressive now. Light sunshine vermillion color in glass. Wild red raspberries, fine tannins, medium, soft acidity. Floral & those fruits on nose. From a producer I hold complete faith in, happy the reward came ( his Chardonnay is my catnip). I did not decant. The question remains: were they bad bottles or just in a ‘dumb’ phase? — 5 days ago

L'Aventure

Estate Paso Robles Rosé Blend 2019

Last three years this had been my fav domestic rose. Light salmon pink... but nice Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre blend. Nice weight on the palate... strawberry, rhubarb, cranberry, watermelon bites... juicy, dry, balanced. I have been pretty well over rose the past couple years... but I really find this one head and shoulders above most. Bravo Stephen Assao...I value your wines, your vision, your passion. — 6 days ago

Quintessa

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Celebrating getting back together with friends after shelter at home with a 1997 Quintessa cab. Cork was spongy, but the Durand was able to pull in one piece. On open, I was sure the wine was done as was quite reddish brown and it smelled a bit vinegary. About 40 minutes of air was all it needed to open up. Soft fruit nose with a savory mid-palate of tobacco and leather. Nice finish. #quintessa — 8 days ago
