Scuttlehole Long Island Chardonnay 2019

Best value chardonnay in America? This one continues to grow on me. Clean and precise, but no lack of a personality and point of view. — 4 days ago

Vice Versa

Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This bottle of 2016 Vice Versa “Dr. Crane Vineyard” (BBS) was generously provided by a friend who selected it from his cellar to share over dinner at V. Mertz. This is the BBS (Best Barrel Select) of the Dr. Crane Vineyard which, I guess, is deemed the best tasting barrel by the winemaking team. Popped and poured. No formal notes but I can state with absolutely certainly that the juice is well and truly special. The wine is still quite youthful but already very easy to love. Beautifully layered dark fruits with tobacco, cocoa, stone-like minerals and deftly integrated baking spices. The structure is firm, leaving little doubt about the long life yet ahead. That being said, everything is so well balanced. I have a very strong feeling this will be one of those wines that never really shuts down. While they are two very different wines from different parts of the world, I found this to be a very handsome compliment to the 2015 “Tintot” we drank just before. This was also very nice with the lamb chops we had for dinner. Drink now or through 2036.

Ramato Long Island Pinot Grigio 2021

Love love love Channing Daughters. This Ramato is less rosé, more orange wine, both in color and taste. It’s all wet rocks and incense, raspberries and nettles. Super complex and super tasty. — 18 days ago

California Growers Wine Co.

Red Blend 2019

Organic grapes! Not too fancy looking label. Dark as blood. Smells like fresh cut wood, a musty library and deep red-purple plum sauce. Flavors are balanced out with a bittersweet tannic edge to match the berry and lighter roast coffee flavors. Also has a fresh chocolate mint leaves meets fennel fronds thing in there. Easy drinking, but dense enough to drink with aged cheddar cheeses. This is a great deal, and example of the type of blend I love. And the icing on the carrot cake is the organic grapes. — 11 days ago

Was this a TJ’s wine?

I think it might have been. It’s also a lot like the organic reserve red blend they have there.

Just a favorite. Cool summer melon and grapefruit — 7 hours ago

Green Fin Winery

California Red Blend 2019

Nose of dark fruits like blackberries, vanilla, milky chocolate, a bit tobacco leaves, and some more cherry flavors. Taste follows the nose with good fruity notes plus a bit oaky feeling. Sweet, mouthful, low tannins, and a bit peppery. Aftertaste is also clean with some more grapes and bitter note. Consider the price, quite amazing. — 4 days ago

Pavette

Chardonnay

Lighter Chardonnay with a nose of crushed gravel, citrus blossom and Meyer lemon. The palate is restrained and not overly oaky with some bruised yellow apple and a slightly chalk like texture. Enjoyed! — 2 days ago
