Absolutely delicious. Drank it chilled. Very light, bitter cherry taste. — 23 days ago

Bodega El Esteco

Don David Reserve Malbec 2018

I don’t drink many purple wines these days in fact if any, but this was a gift from a colleague & supervisee so I felt a certain obligation. Not a bad one: new oak obvious, still has some lift and floral notes through that blueberry/ blueberry pie palate. You could do a lot worse, and Frederick Wildman thought enough of it to import. Still, caveat is that not my taste but some may be wild over it ( a 92 from J Suckling?! My lord, he does score high). — 19 days ago

Yeah, JS is generous IMO.

I do appreciate his enthusiasm but his scores are predictably 2-3 above others. There does seem to be a strategy (colluding/identifying with wine makers?) but not sure what it is.....@Severn Goodwin

Haven’t seen much meat on a rose before. I’m intrigued.

David Hill Vineyard Silvaner 2019

Keeping Portland in my ❤️ right now and this sylvaner (not to mention sylvaner in general) kicks ass. Uniquely refreshing and secretly complex: kiwi, green apple and pear with a twist of lime zest and chamomile. Tart with just the right amount of RS. — 19 days ago

Sébastien Cuscusa

Domaine La Consonnière 2016

2016. Decanted 3+ hours. Solid low/mid-range CDP with classic purple plum fruit without being too sappy or fleshy. Missing some barnyard funk and a longer finish that could make it more memorable, but well-made and should get more complex over time. $36 at Vine Republic. — 22 days ago

Chablis Chardonnay 2018

Lyle Fass
9.2

Lovely nose. Classic Fabien. Saline and seashells galore. High toned and focused. Lime pith but massively mineral. Palate is so pure, so loaded with fresh mineral and seashells it almost comes across as dry Riesling! Palate is super pure, sappy and clean with a lovely compact quality and terrific intensity. Finishes elegant and mineral. A smokeshow as always. — 6 days ago

Domaine Etienne et Sébastien Riffault

Les Quarterons Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

I’ve heard for years about the wildly extroverted and extra-ordinary Sancerre wines from Sebastien Riffault. His wines are an outlier of ripeness in a sea of lean high acid chalky juice. Rich with an amber glow.

He picks his Sauvignon Blanc at the last minute to reach a level of ripeness you’d never expect could come from the tiny cold pocket of the Loire.

Now I like both styles, but this is super fun and something completely new to me.

Think juicy peach, fresh apricot, and bright yellow pineapple. But still with high acid - nothing flabby.

@Jay Kline yes it’s a must. Reminds me of the bow and arrow Sauvignon Blanc if you’ve ever tried
