Dry Stack Vineyard White Blend 2016

9.5

Well dang. I got this on recommendation of @David L , @Carl Fischer , @Mike R , @Ron R and a few others. I am SO glad I did, especially after hearing that my favorite SB, Arkenstone, is moving to $95/bottle! To me, this tastes like Arkenstone on day 2. It is chock full of pineapple juice, cantaloupe, kiwi and stone fruits. Reminds me of the ice cream bar Creamsicle in how creamy it is. There is a tartness with the fruit but also balanced acidity. It is powerful and bold. Truly fantastic for those who enjoy bigger style SB. As you can see in the background, @Mark Flesher enjoyed it! — 3 days ago

@Jake Rubash, where you located? We’d like to be part of that inquisition 😃 If you’re close to the tri-state area, I’m doing something late February. Let me know if you want some...

@Ron R that would be awesome but probably not in the cards as we live in the Bay Area in CA

Château Haut Selve

Graves White Bordeaux Blend 2012

Someone asked me if this is cab or merlot dominated, and I said... “no idea, but if I had to guess, I’d say 50/50”... and now I feel like a boss because I was right. This is a good wine. Clove and concentrated fruit jam on the nose... almost pungent in this sense. After some time decanting, this thing smoothes out beautifully. Spice box palate, dry but round tannins. It’s at its prime right now. — 2 days ago

If your drinking alone then who asked you if it was a cab or merlot? 🤔

Laurent-Perrier

Brut La Cuvée Champagne Blend

David T
9.1

The more I have of this Cuvée, the more I like it.

The nose reveals; lemon parfait, lemon meringue, golden apple with green apple that layers underneath it, grapefruit, fresh pineapple, honeysuckle, marzipan, cream, toast, caramel, hints of ginger, sea shells, verbena, soft chalkiness, yellow lilies, fruit blossoms and spring flowers.

The body is soft, rich, creamy mousse and lively in the mouth. The palate is lemon sorbet, lime zest, honeysuckle, pineapple, verbena, golden apple, some green apple, caramel, light spice that brings some palate heat, toast, hints of ginger, marzipan, silvered almond, brioche, beautiful nice chalkiness, sea spray, grey volcanic minerals that penetrate into your palate, yellow lilies, fruit blossoms and spring flowers. The acidy is very nice...well executed, the long, rich, balanced finish is quite enjoyable and persists on the palate for minutes.

Chemin de Reims Extra Brut Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012

100% chard and extra brut but on the sweet and toasty side. Not quite as bright and savory as some of the single vineyard offerings from C-T, but this has a bit of a lushness to it that reminds me of vintage Krug. The nose is all brioche, lemon curd and a bit of candied orange. If I only had one word, it would be “panettone”. Like this a lot. — 6 days ago

Preparing for some seriously cold weather. Fire is roaring and moonshiners is on. This is a big wine that just hangs on the side of the glass. Honeydew, lemon and it has an oily texture. — 5 days ago

You know that craving you have sometimes for something very specific, and when you get something close to that you are disappointed because it doesn’t satiate your exact craving? This matched everything I was looking for. It was yeasty, toffee driven, caramel & oxidized fruit. The bubbles were minuscule and the mousse was extremely creamy. Lots of baked fruit/toasted aromatics and notes on the palate. This is drinking really well right now. Absolutely wonderful. Thanks @Mark Flesher — 3 days ago

This afternoon/evening was our first of two baby showers. Not only were we surrounded by friends & family, but we were also surrounded by some good wine & other drinks.

Delicious. I had a friend saber this as her last attempt didn’t pan out so well. Very enjoyable bubbles.
