La Rioja Alta

Gran Reserva 904 Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2004

Columbia county 2.0: end of a meal, nightcap of sorts. So so perfumed with dill & vanilla & tree sap, as if Willy Wonka decided to get into winemaking. Really just lived for a while breathing this in. On palate it’s remarkably agile & light, even though the body of red fruits is firmly medium boned. No signs of decay or slowing down- even the cork was perfect-easily can go on another several decades ( it feels). God what a treat. — a year ago

Dark and squishy, like that one girl who turned into a blueberry in Willy Wonka — 4 years ago


Vlahiko Dry Red Blend 2016

I love Greek wine. They really get the idea. Light bodied, could be chilled. Like eating a eating a blueberry tart and drink a lambic with salt water riding up against the bottle. but Willy wonka style - so it’s all in this wine — 4 years ago

Romano Dal Forno

Monte Lodoletta Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

After wading through sage smudge sticks & ashen pine forests I stumble upon Willy Wonka’s sinister step brother’s setup lined with dried black cherries, dark chocolate covered cherry cordials & espresso beans, soaked rum cake, brandied soaked plums, figs and a finish of cocoa powder with flowerless dark chocolate cake — 3 years ago

Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel 2018

This Zinfandel from Predator makes me feel like I’m on a stroll through Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, stalked by flavors of tobacco, jam, cherry, spice, and everything nice. Umpa Lumpa’s chanting songs of intoxication and merriment lull me into bliss. This Zinfandel is the golden ticket. — 4 years ago
