Vio Rous Napa Valley Viognier Roussanne Blend 2016

This wasn’t showing as well as it has in the past for me. The mid palate was rather hollow. I just think it’s young and needs time to put on weight and substance. Hold. — 9 days ago

I would agree. This wine needs additional age to show its stuff. Cheers buddy. Happy Father’s Day.

Grande Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Echezeaux Pinot Noir 2005

Languid and not showing full expression right now. Sweet, sappy and full with a very dark fruit core and a marked savory side, but just very wound up right now.

This is substantially better now (Monday) than it was Friday night. Quite vivid and striking. The hollow mid palate from Friday is replaced by a warm brightness of fruit and silky mouthfeel. Serving suggestion: Decant 72 hours 😂

Hickory Hollow Wine Cellars

Finger Lakes Riesling 2017

Another wine from our recent trip to the Finger Lakes, this delicious unoaked Cab Franc was made by Nathan Kendall under his family's Hickory Hollow label.
Very clear and light hued, it almost resembles a rosé. On the nose it is all fruit - cranberries, tart cherries, even some strawberries. The fruit leads the way on the palate as well, especially the cranberry, along with meadow grass and bitter greens, and a spicy bite on the finish. There is a mineral core, an aliveness, that I really love, and that makes it a great wine to pair with springtime foods.

I was semi-taken aback by this wine. Great aromatics right off the bat...crushed potpourri, ripe black cherries, licorice and some cedar. Still showing nice acidity at 7yrs young. What I found interesting was, based on the aromatics and front palate (ripe red and black fruits, plum and peppercorn spice), I expected the mid-palate to be more rich/flavor packed. Seemed a touch hollow. Finish turned to the savory side with herbal spice, and more underbrush/cedar. I have always enjoyed the ME Klopp Ranch Pinot (and SauvBlanc) but I’d have to try this again to see if my notes were consistent. — 2 months ago
