Just a delicious mountain zin. Wonderfully fresh and generous, plum, pan forte and church incense and candied violets. Minerals, black pepper and black fruited palate. Youthful, balanced and perfectly integrated front to back. Well done Skyla! — a month ago

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Lovely aged classic claret. Perfect Christmas drink. Angels singing, upon a midnight, the stars in the bright sky. Hark, hark, hark. — 25 days ago

Sky Pinot Noir 2013

This was quite good - and better than the 2013 Moon, which I’m pretty sure received a higher rating. Probably just past peak, however, so I wouldn’t advise hanging on to this one much longer. — 2 months ago

Quabbin Sky Vineyard

Cooleyville Vignole White 2015

Fruity, with a taste of Pseudocydonia sinensis, or Chinese quince. The bottle says pineapple flavor, but is more citrus. Golden orange color. Got this some time ago at a Massachusetts local winery, near Amherst. Very nice wine! — 8 days ago

Grande Cuveé 166ÈME Édition Brut Champagne Blend

Delicate, clean mushroom initially, turns slowly to brioche and pastry, with zinnia and magnolia-ocean and a delicate mushroom sauté. Deep lemon-lime instantly purifies and reveals layers of sublimely thin croissant flake. Lime zest and tart lemon lift airily from the glass while the biscuity elements complete the perfect cross-section of earthy root, mushroom, flower and alpine sky. Ethereal. #happynewyear #caviar #newyear #osetra #russianosetra #champagne #krug #krug166theditionbrut #kruggrandcuvée #bubbles #champagnedreams #chamagneandcaviar #2021 — 19 days ago

'S' Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut Chardonnay 1996

My third and last bottle. The previous bottle was enjoyed in 2015 at which point it still had a laser-focused precision with sky-high acids and pumping energy. Now, the wine was more rounded and developed; the nose highly mineral, smokey, and with vanillin, citrus, and liquorice notes; the mousse was creamy and still vibrant but clearly less than in -15; taste was fruit forward with citrus, peach, and apples, and with brioche and some tertiary flavours like trouffles and green herbs. Very elegant and the best I’ve had to date. Happy New Year. — 13 days ago

Blanc de Noirs Champagne Chardonnay

December 2020. Last Bottle. 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir. Grower/producer champagne. Beautiful color, soft bubbles. Lemon/citrus flavor. No toasty notes which is just fine with me. Toasting an old mentor/friend who I just learned died of COVID. 😢 This bottle was perfect, under a clear desert sky, in front of a fire. Rest In Peace, my friend. — a month ago
