Grand Cru Imperial Sour Blonde Ale 2016

Imperial Sour Blonde Ale, Edition No. 2

Nose has musty oak barrel, rehydrated apricot, lightly acidic, grapefruit skin, Muscat grape profile is distant.

Palate has light sourness, apricot jelly, citrus pith, lime and yellow cherry.

Fun stuff, not hitting out of the park sour, but a very nice start to the evening, well balanced, complexity to the flavors.

Dakota Shy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Excellente! Received this from a friend and held on to it until I hit my required 5 year mark for Cab Sauvs. Beautiful spice, berry, olive, slight leather and hint of slight sweetness in nose and palate. Medium tannins and this was much smoother that I originally expected. — 7 days ago

Basics of Life Mataro Dolcetto 2017

Regan Meador uprooted his Long Island operation and moved it to Texas after permit battles over a tasting room. The second chapter would focus on grapes grown best in the Texas Hill Country. In this instance, Mataro and Dolcetto. This is an important turning point for Texas wine - not on the wave of sweet jammy reds or unremarkable rose’. Relying instead on place and time.

If gamay would ripen a bit, it would be this blend. It has a crimson brick color and piney red berries. 100% stem inclusion. The Dolcetto gives a dark dried fruit flavor profile. Raisins and dried bing cherries. And fresh salty minerals.

J. Schram Champagne Pinot Noir Chardonnay 2008

Birthday celebration for @Cody Uzzel at Lucio’s with a bunch of friends. All wines (except sparklers) tasted blind.
.
First time trying J. Schram but certainly won’t be the last. This is some serious sparkling wine in keeping with many of Krug GC’s characteristics that I love so much. Rich and full in body with nougat, caramel, nutty milk chocolate, and caramelized brown sugar. Perfect way to kick off a killer dinner.

These can be very good, and their late disgorged offerings can be spectacular. I’ve found that the Reserve (Blanc de noir) shows better younger and the Jschram (Blanc de Blanc) shows better older, but age is very relative as these can hold for quite a while!
