Estate Grown Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Pinot Noir Estate is a very pretty, delicate wine. Lifted aromatics, bright red berry fruit and mid-weight structure make for a tasty, Russian River Pinot that will drink well right out of the gate. This is an especially floral, silky style. A dollop of whole clusters (12%) is not especially evident. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2021)

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Delectable Wine

The 2005 Cheval Blanc has been nothing less than magical on two separate occasions. A wine of breathtaking nuance and sophistication, the 2005 Cheval dazzles right out of the gate. With a few hours of aeration the aromatics blossom and the wine is explosive in every dimension. Espresso, rose petal, mint, blood orange and incense all open as the 2005 shows off its magnificence and pedigree. Bright saline underpinnings convey energy, tension and brilliance. Cheval Blanc is perhaps not as immediately seductive as some of the other top 2005s, but its all there. In spades. I would give it a few more years to unwind. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2021)

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 1997

Nice little find at Wine & Co in Charleston. Lives up to the high standard of a very nice Tuscan vintage. Nice straight out of gate but I shall add more when I give the next bottle time to breathe. — 3 days ago

Zeppwingert Alte Reben Trocken Riesling 2019

This is excellent riesling for the price. Unscrew and pour. A touch overly leesy out of the gate, but much better with a couple of hours open. On the nose: pure lemon, lime, peach, soft yeast and some black pepper. On the palate: fantastic acidity, lemon, stone, peach pit, grapefruit, black pepper and nice density on the mid and finish. — a month ago
