Kreinbacher Prestige Brut
One of the best champagnes I’ve ever tasted! — 3 days ago
Deep celler with spiller wine on the nose. The taste is fruit and dark at first, with lots of dark berries quickly followed up by a sourness and a lighter taste that finished with a little but of warmth. Very well integrated and no specific taste or fruit takes over. Nice for anything when you want a good deep red wine but not to heavy nor light — 2 months ago
Hungarian Pinot - imported by danach and granger, Los Altos — 2 months ago
There is really only one grape variety that I know of in the world that deserves to always have an exclamation mark: Juhfark! Or as I like to shout, Juhfaaaaaaaark! (pronounced you-fark). Grown only on the tiny little hill of Somló, an ancient underwater volcano, in Southwestern Hungary, it is among my favorite grape varieties and simply one of the world’s coolest wines. @sap_somlo is one of the best producers of it, coaxing out its bee pollen and chamomile scents and electric neon lemon, citrus peel, and yellow herb flavors, all layered on top of the deep volcanic minerality. The longer you let these wines age, the more they taste like rocks. Tired of the same old flavors in your white wines? Get thee some Juhfark! — a month ago
Light, fine & quite delicate - reminiscent of a Pinot or Südtirol Vernatsch. Fresh Strawberries & raspberries & red currant with a touch of sage & distant basil.
On the palate this is surprisingly light & fine considering the Barrique & Tonneaux aging - the wood showing only in the backdrop, brilliantly integrated. Fresh acidity, dusty ultra fine tannins.
Red fruit again with a mineral, herby aftertaste. This is very nice, esp. slightly chilled. My style of wine. — 2 months ago

Du bon jus — 11 days ago
The Furminth grapes used for this crisp and elegant Hungarian wine comes from the Varadi wineyard on a (inactive) volcano hillside and are fermented with natural yeast in local oak barrels; greenish notes in light yellow color; crisp citrus and lime on the nose along with peaches and red grape fruit; high acids and low alcohol (12%) yield a summer-like fresh crispness with a hint of anise, potpourri, and herbs. Other than an apparent lack of depth and complexity, this was an overall positive experience. — 4 months ago
