Campo Delle Piane

La Meridiana Boca 1984

That color 😍 Initial stank quickly faded into sweet red berries and florals (transporting me to dewy orchards, images of raindrops on roses and more of my favorite things, etc). The potent acidity keeps the fruit surprisingly fresh and vibrant for its age - yes there’s loads stewed black cherry in there, but also some underripe red berries and tamarind paste, finishing with tarragon and a long chalky/mineral-laced finish. Elegant and tight
-lipped. If this is what 36 can be, bring on 2021!

La Sœur Cadette Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2017

Pleasant and simple. Chardonnay of the most commons - white flowers, orchards, some nice notes of tarragon and smokey tropical. Texture of sour cream and a squeeze of lemon. — a year ago

Smells of ripe peach orchards

A lovely flavor profile of peaches, pepper, honeyed cashew, apricot Close to the pit. The minerality pushes its way from beginning to end, then past that.
A delicious Vinho Verde, with unique flavor, personality, and one that I need to return to. Excuse me.

Morning Dew Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Anderson Valley in a glass: vineyards shrouded in coastal fog, redwood groves, overgrown apple orchards (wildflowers, moss, lichen, tall grass, mushrooms, etc). Tension and purity. Pretty cranberry, spice and citrus on the finish. Third time I’ve had this wine and it still proves to be one of the best (balanced, complete, memorable) Pinots I’ve had all year. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 — 3 years ago

I only drink Pinot if there’s both moss AND lichen in it

Pegasus Bay

Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2019

F-ing delightful, Pegasus, take me away. Well first let the Pegasus catch its breath (aka let the vino breath), then hop on. Smells a little earthy as a winged horse is want to be, but take sip and the steed takes flight. Fly through hella raspberry…orchards? Descend enough to grab those and some cherries fresh off the tree then accelerate through a tunnel of (politefully chill) oak barrels and chill. Oh! But this flight didn’t have turbulence rather (abandoning metaphor) it is supes silky but while it punches with fruit and pepper it then smooths itself across your tongue like a lace tablecloth. Aka achieves smoothness with texture and the flavors and sensations seem to pop all over my tongue prior to my hopping on my metaphorical pegasus who is (describing the finish) descending into a cherry orchard (not just cause I’m doing a stage reading of Chekhov’s “Cherry Orchard” soon) and lovingly (as lovingly as a creature with wings and hooves can) sending me to find my way back through the barrels to who knows? It’s like I’m Alice in Wrinkle in Time-land. Cool Pinot from NZ I’d like to take another flight on a different Pegasus Air line. Just to see. — 7 months ago

Give Peach a Chance Peach Wine

One of my favorite wines. Very fruity. Kinda of sweet with a nice punch! Actually discovered at the actual winery Auburn orchards. My husband and I went for an anniversary. A great night, great wine! Was a really good time! — 2 years ago
