Centgrafenberg Trocken Spätburgunder J 2019

9.5

Insanely complex nose with tea, black cherries, crazy spice and so much earthy, leafy and tree bark complexity. Endless aromatic depth and really penetrates the nostrils. Also intense mineral expression. Wow, so deep and so structured with thick and dense fruit and lot of tannins that are super ripe and deep. So clear and rugged and needs many years of age but has superb fruit and thickness. Love this. Amazing finish and oodles and oodles of cherry fruit. — 15 days ago

The North Slope Vineyard Pinot Noir 2022

Released 3/24, the ‘22 North Slope Pinot is a clear cherry color with a vibrant nose of raspberry. It’s smooth and elegant with red fruit notes galore, a nice structuring acidity and a hint of smoke on the finish. One of the better North Slopes in recent memory. — 2 months ago

Clear nose and very fresh. Chlorophyll, wet stones, celeriac, perfumed minerals. Gorgeous nose. Juicy and intense but also soft and accessible with lovely fruit and purity. Gentle and caressing with wonderful elegance and finesse. Juicy and engaging. Density without weight. This is “Bugstadter” Riesling. @Delectable Wine — 15 days ago

Cuvée Ruth Pinot Noir 2022

2022 vintage. This is unadulterated, old-school OR pinot. No plushiness. No voluptuousness. Zero hedonism. Lean, clean and mean. Light-medium body with the tannic punch of an older sibling. Dark fruits/stems, woodlands presence and earthiness setting up camp. Haven't tasted a "food wine" more food wine than this in a while. 5.15.24. — a month ago

@Norman Gennaro The whites are better than the reds but they don’t sell.

La Combe Verte Chardonnay 2022

First time with WS in a while. Almost a pogeba. Really liking it so far. Lemon curd, acidity and tension. Excited to try the same in a few years. — 2 months ago

Superb nose. Violets and spicey. Very aromatic. Stunning aromas. So pure and pretty. Gorgeous and supple and very fresh but this is ass backwards and will need many years to come around. Wonderful but man is this closed and deeply structured. — 15 days ago

Cahill Lane Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

From 100% Wente clones that get max hang time, large and tiny berries packed together, pale lemon with subtle aromas of citrus and stone fruits. On the palate flavors of apple, lemon and lime flavors, crisp acidity, long finish ending with rich mineral character. Perfect now! — 2 months ago
