Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2008

My friend graciously shared the 2008 Chateau Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape which was a rare treat that is truly one of the wines of the vintage. The intoxicating bouquet of rose petals, Provencale herbs, sweet pipe tobacco and pretty red fruits bring you back to the glass for more aromatic delight. The texture of the wine borders ethereal as the Grenache effortlessly dances across the mid-palate. Bright guava and Yakima cherry flavors combine with damp earthy tones, minerals and a marvelous salinity that runs through the core of the wine. The exceedingly long finish lingers. While marvelous now, the 2008 Rayas will have a long life ahead of it in the cellar. Drink 2020-2038- 96 — 3 days ago

Castello di Brolio Vin Santo del Chianti Classico Trebbiano-Malvasia Blend 2010

Wow, I am in love again - a wonderful mist-to have sweet vine from the Northern Italy - something in between Tokay wine and Austrian sweet wines...
Just a perfect finishing wine for a great day!

Vin Santo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend

9.0

Had this (2007 vintage) at a dinner at the end of a launch of a new DC restaurant. I had some wonderful vin santo in Umbria years ago and have been chasing something similar ever since. This wine fit my bill. Full-bodied and luxurious, like a candied hazelnut. — 16 days ago

Ruinart

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

9.2

Four day weekend. Gotta get it off to a good start. Been awhile since we had our 375ml of Ruinart.

The nose shows, ripe, slightly candied; black cherries, strawberries, kirsch cherries, rich, summertime watermelon, touch of orange citrus family blend, pomegranate juice, hints of fruit roll up & haunting apricots. Sea fossils & spray, a little bread dough, grey volcanics, chalky powder, orange, spring flowers with fresh & withering, red & pink rose pedals.

The palate is full & touch gummy/candied. Fruits are well extracted, deep, ruby; black cherries, blackberries, strawberries, kirsch cherries, rich, summertime watermelon, touch of orange citrus family blend, pomegranate juice, hints of fruit roll up & haunting apricots. Ghostly, not quite fruit brandy or fruit liqueur character, sea fossils & spray, a little bread dough, not quite medium, white spice with hints of palate heat, grainy, grey volcanics, chalky powder, orange, spring flowers with fresh & withering, red & pink rose pedals. The acidity lively and crisp. The round, well balanced & polish finish is always consistently satisfying and lingers for minutes.

Photos of; the House of Ruinart, Dom Thierry Ruinart, nicely light caves and rolling, hillside, Grand Cru Vineyard.

Not quite sure where “D” gets $83 when you can buy this all day at just under $65.

Oris Falerio White Blend 2016

Bang on dance of flavors: tropical fruits and minerals. Food friendly and great on its own. Might be my favorite white at this price point. Ciu Ciu is one the best wine makers in Le Marche and some of their reds are age worthy and must be explored. #falerio #lemarche #marchigiani #centralitaly #ciuciu #whiteblend — 19 days ago
