Plumpjack

Napa Valley Merlot 2018

I don’t inhale (didn’t Bill Clinton absolve himself with that line at some point)?
Anyway, when your crew are floating around, you need to play high post. A benchmark Cuban gets the job done.
Plumpjack Merlot rarely falls short, and this is no exception. Cedar notes combine with exotic spices, particularly nutmeg. Fig paste and bitter cocoa give way to expresso notes and judicious sweetness. Excellent presentation, just requires a touch more density. Otherwise, rock n roll right here.

Home Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Very good, rich PN of CO. Deep dark red fruits n a some tannins. Very good body but might lack a little acididi. Debelops nicely in glass from tight black currant to ripe strawberry n a stone minerality. — a year ago

Domaine du Clos de l'Elu

Bastingage Anjou Chenin Blanc

A great, yet kinda simple CB. My kind w the tropix but also wool n almost waxiness. Demands a little air but saved us from a corked Joly (1996). — 6 months ago
