Symphony

Salomon/Undhof

Alma Riesling Amphora 2018

Wow. What a bouquet. Even surrounded by the fragrance of lilies, I can just smell the essence of lavender, honey, meadowy grass, slight slight saffron. Wonderful.

This is a sipping wine. Almost a shame to waste it on poker night, since I won’t be able to give it, its full attention.

Slight bubbles, but I wouldn’t really want anymore. The acidity hits its note right on cue, balancing nicely with its off-dry quality. Definitely a bit of that petrol afternote. It works here, though, playing nicely off the backdrop of the after-the-rain dewy fields and mango/lavender note.

A symphony in the forest.

Theopolis Vineyards

Yorkville Highlands Symphony 2015

I was so very into this—as I have been everything I’ve tried from Theopolis! Did you know Symphony was a grape? Me neither. I wasn’t sure if a crossing of Muscat of Alexandria and Grenache Gris would be my cup of...well, wine, but in the hands of Theodora Lee it absolutely is. Silly, balanced, it is an elegant bouquet of flowers neither over nor underdone. Just right. And a welcome change of pace! One of those wines that makes me anxious to meet the winemaker because all Theopolis’ wines have an idiosyncrasy that is undefinable and intriguing. And scrumptious. — 5 months ago

@Paul T- Huntington Beach first time I tried Theopolis was at a tasting of the San Francisco Wine Competition winners that came through Los Angeles. This I ordered straight from the winery website

Domaine Drouhin

Laurène Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2012

2012 vintage....The last great show stopper was 2008. This beats it.
A symphony of red and dark cherries with cola on the nose. Depth and richness with more to come.
WOW...black cherry, black tea, spicy ripe raspberries, lush fruit and pomegranate. Seamless, everything is in balance and harmony....acids and tannins. I truly wish I had bought another case of this stunning wine.

Chianti Rùfina Sangiovese Blend 2016

Rufina worth reaching for. Tannins, acidity, fruit all playing a wonderful Symphony together! Had another bottle of this last night, & got a great floral character in the mid palate. Just enough complexity to keep the recipient engaged. — 3 months ago

Château La Garricq

Moulis en Médoc Cru Bourgeois Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Contrary to the pros I am scoring it high because it offers everything I like in a wine. It has the bite from the higher % petit Verdot, it has a rich mid palet with vibrant fruit from the merlot and has depth and finish from the cab. A nice trio playing a beautiful symphony on a soft early summer night in Idaho. — 4 months ago
