Slither Of Sun

La Follette

Sun Chase Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

This wine is still giving everything wonderful. No sign of any age. Full body. Complex. Lingering finish. I just love that it’s a $30something bottle that can stand next to much more expensive bottles. — 2 months ago

Domaine d'E Croce (Yves Leccia)

Ile de Beauté Red Wine 2019

Yves Leccia’s 2019 Île de Beauté IGP Rouge is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Niellucciu, hailing from the northerly appellation of Patrimonio, Corsica.

Île de Beauté – the namesake for many wines produced on the island – translates to ‘island of beauty’ in English.

This is a beautiful wine, indeed. It is medium ruby with ripe cherry, strawberry, and kirsch notes leaping out of the glass; it also offers licorice, fennel, violet, and subtle meaty characteristics. The fruit is unmistakably intense and concentrated. I suspect it’s a reflection of the dry, sun-soaked climate on this beautiful, mountainous Mediterranean Island.

This is such a versatile and food-friendly wine – it’s definitely worth a taste if you have the chance (preferably while gazing upon Corsica’s coastal seascapes). Cheers to the wines of Corsica!

Maximin Herrenberg GG Riesling 2017

Glowing liquid gold. No doubt, my favorite shade of riesling. We're in for some expression, maybe even a smile. Smells like can of Sprite and sticky Valencia orange slices, beads of juice crawling down your palms. Tastes like starfruit and lime-aid sherbert, bitter grapefruit, thyme, and honey. Pinnacle acid and mouth coating viscosity. Long as the summer sun. — 2 months ago

Tenuta Monolo

Riserva Bramaterra Nebbiolo Blend 1983

Nose is totally closed on open. Maybe a hint of tomato skin.

Palate is sort of stewed sweet tomato a bit. Some acidity.

Let’s see how this goes.

As this opens gunmetal smoke on the nose.

Palate is fresh. Fruit is smoked sun dried tomato. Lovely internal aromatics.

2 hours in. Nose is cherry with a hint of pleasant tomato skin. Deep. Dried red roses.

Palate is bright cherry. Savory tomato (good thing). Savory. Very interesting.

Day 2 nose is smoky. Deep. Hint of tomato skin. Palate is savory. Better yesterday. But not awful.
