Rock Island Red Columbia Valley Merlot Blend 2016

The trick here is to decant the crap out of this wine. Right now, straight out of the bottle this is tight, bright, and tart. But a double decant plus an hour of open time and its a very decent wine. Ripe cherry notes, raspberry jam, and cola notes make for a pleasant and tasty food wine. — 19 days ago

Terroir de la Chapelle Chablis Chardonnay 2018

Excellent young Chablis packed with minerality, squashed lemons, rich, oily lemon zest and an appetising salinity. — 6 days ago

Les Forêts Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

After a very disappointing 2014 Les Preuses for lunch wanted to make sure I hadn’t lost faith in Piuze. So tried this for dinner and this time from a perfect wine cellar 😀. This a quite a different bottle, saline, pear, flint and medium weight. The 2014 was a fluke😀 — 24 days ago

Ryan Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007

After leaving it about 4 hours open... This wine gave me a flashback. Way back in school while backpacking Europe, I bee-lined to the hospices de beaune. Armed with the supplied tastevin, I remember having the ‘78 Echezeaux. And being floored. I said to the old guy there... “wow... this is way better than Bordeaux!!!” He laughed something in French which I took as “you betcha”. — a month ago

Mark Ryan Winery

Columbia Valley Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The 2017 ‘Old Vines’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a sinfully good new wine by Mark Ryan. Aromatically intense, the wine has sagebrush, mocha and tar tones that are woven together with deep dark fruits and shades of pipe tobacco that all sing in unison in the glass. The weight and balance of the wine is downright awesome, as the pillowy, soft texture entices. While this provides plenty of appeal in its youth, the 2017 ‘Old Vines’ Cabernet Sauvignon will have a long life ahead of it. Be sure to give this at least a one hour decant if enjoying in its nascent phase. Drink 2020-2033- 93 — 13 days ago

Terroir de Chablis Chardonnay 2018

Are you kidding me for $24?!? Excellent QPR.
Pears, peach skin, melon rind, wet stones, and marzipan.

One of the best producers from entry level to luxury.
