Old Cannery Row

Raymond Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Bright yellow gold. Nose of baked quince and light butterscotch. Echoed on the full-bodied palate with a good backbone of medium plus acidity wrapped up inside. A rare bird in California Chardonnays in that it gives body, fruit, oak, and food-friendly freshness without overloading in any of them. I’m not always a fan of Wagner family works, but this under-the-radar Chardonnay is actually a good representation of the style. Good enough at regular price, but a steal when it’s on sale. Drink now through 2021. — a month ago

Chateau Ste. Michelle

50th Anniversary Special Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

붉다기 보다는 엷은 보라색 내지는 브라운 색상을 띄는 미국산 카베르네 소비뇽. 그동안 먹었던 와인들 대비 탄닌이 매우 부드럽고 산미도 약한편이며 스모키함을 극단적으로 배제시킨것 같음. 오히려 그러한 방향성이 매우 독특하게 다가와서 신기하고 좋았다. 향기는 처음에는 약간 아쉬움이 남으나 인내심을 가지고 열어두면 그제서야 오크통과 바닐라향이 웃는 얼굴을 보여주는 느낌. 휴가중 편안하게 소파에서 누워 마시기 좋은 그런 와인. (전반적인 인상은 2015년 Raymond 카쇼를 연상시킴) — 15 days ago
