Originally fell in love with this back in college after tasting it at BH. I bought a few bottles I could find around town to save for an important day. — 13 days ago

If you tasted me blind and told me this was a villages Nuits or Vosne, I’d go along with that. This incredibly fine and detailed Pinot starts out with aromas of blackcherries and boysenberry, then follows with a classic Burgundian “hard candy” palate of identical flavors. What it doesn’t do is turn broad, coarse and balsamic in the way so many Hautes Côtes reds do. Sensational. — 10 days ago
Rhone blend Grenache 60%, Syrah 20%, Mourvedre 20%.
Deep red color, silky, medium to bold body. A bit fruit forward, hints of chocolate, finishing with mandarin. — 16 days ago
Hierbas (“yeerbass”) is a balearic tradition. Herbal liqueur, usually served over an ice cube or two after dinner. In many restaurants it was complimentary, and Ibicencos were delighted if you expressed interest. Some restaurants on Ibiza and Formentera produce their own. This was one of our favorites—not as sugary as the more commercial varieties with amazing aromas of thyme and rosemary. A great liqueur. — 20 days ago
Birth year wine for my birthday. Always a roll of the dice with wines this old but this one was really good. Opened up nicely with a little time in the glass. Surprised at the clarity and minimal oxidation. Still had red tones not overly orange on the edges. Classic Bordeaux nose. Leather on the finish. Not a ton going on mid plate (more soft and subtle fruit). Overall very pleasing wine. I wish I was aging as gracefully as this! — 11 days ago
