La Rioja Alta

Centenario Rioja Tempranillo 1973

Highlight wine at Old Rioja Wine Dinner. Little history on the bottle: it's part of a special lot that was to be released on the 100th anniversary of La Rioja Alta and a blend of 85% Tempranillo with some Mazuelo, Graciano and Viura. It was aged for twenty four months in large oak vats, then for ten years in 18-20 year old barriques and finally bottled in 1986 to be released in 1990… Forty eight years after harvest the wine is pure pleasure. Beautiful brownish/reddish color with scents of rose petals, boysenberry, musk, forest floor, mushroom and old leather on the nose. On the pallet, the oak, tannings and fruit are completely integrated; very docile yet seductive. A true gem and one of the most interesting wines I've ever tasted. — a month ago

Tasca D'Almerita

Tenuta Regaleali Nozze D'Oro Contea di Sclafani Inzolia 2012

Developed by Winery founder, Giuseppe Tasca to honor his wife on their golden wedding anniversary. Primarily Inzolia with a bit of Sauvignon Tasca blended in. Beautiful straw gold color. Aromas and flavors of yellow apple, peaches, white flowers and honey. Quite expressive with a bit of heft which allows it to stand up to many different foods. Touch of wet stones on the long finish. Excellent balance. Thank You Ron B! — 13 days ago

Ron Rubin

Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2018

2018 vintage Smooth and Buttery. Toasty oak and notes of apple. Served with Chicken Piccata! Delicious and good price! Will buy again! — a month ago

Château Mont-Redon

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

Copying @Ron R ...

Funky open with a bite.
Calmed to a cranberry, white pepper, with some herbal notes- dill? Spice and pepper persists on the palate with tangy cranberry and and orange rind. Tannins need a bit more softening. But overall, quite fine.

Sierra Norte

Temperamento Utiel-Requena Bobal 2011

Extremely funky (barnyard) aromas with hints of dark berries, vanilla and pepper spice. Dark berry fruit flavors with notes of milk chocolate, tobacco and oak. Hint of smoke on the finish. Very interesting. Appreciate you bringing this one, Ron B. — a month ago

@M. Christopher Roebuck, I’m very sound my friend. Healthy, happy and broke because of my love for wine! And you?

Barone Pizzini

Animante Franciacorta White Blend

Runner-up for Wine Of The Night but definitely the pleasant surprise of the night. Little funky nose and not particularly effervescent for a sparkler. Acidity is muted and feels like a “real wine” as opposed to those chemically enhanced science experiments that pass for luxury wine life in some quarters. Definitely would serve this to my most discerning guests like @Sam Shepard @Brendan Devine and if I could be so blessed, the GOATs of the wine world like @Ron R @Mike R @Willie Carter, a little something off the beaten path. — 2 days ago

Nice words, @Kevin Løk. I’ll certainly seek this out. The truth be known, the likes of @Mike R, @David L, @Joe Lucca and @Bill Bender throw me some big bones. Without those, I’d be wallowing in the bargain-basement 🙂
