Beautiful pair with oven freshly baked pizza truffle goat cheese , burnt garlic & figs🥰😋 — 12 days ago
Nose has mashed blackberry, ripe black current, ripe black cherry, wet saddle leather, horse barn, dried mint, fried green herbs, chopped bacon, muddy garden soil, constantly developing...
Palate has mahogany shavings, black cherry 🍒, dried garden soil, day old bacon bacon 🥓, over-ripe black currant, warm dark chocolate, (minor) baking spice with a very long and intense finish. This wine has at least a decade in front of it tonight. Perfect, supple cork on extraction.
Still quite tannic, decanted 4h, needs much more time to reveal it's true self.
My retailer commented this was not a standard CA Cabernet, more Bordeaux-like, and he was fully on point. The stink on the nose really pointed us away from CA right away.
Paired to some expertly grilled, medium-rare Delmonico steaks from my favorite, local farmer in Columbia Co. NY (Kinderhook Farm), well salted (in advance). Finished with Maldon smoked sea salt, best which exists in the world, IMHO. Also roasted beets with goat feta from VT, where I can only image goats listen to Phish and eat Ben & Jerry's ice cream daily, because only a stress free life like that could yield cheese this good.
I'd like to know the blend on this, should anyone know, I can't believe it's 100% Cab based on the stinky nose, which we appreciate. — 18 days ago
Got some funk, fizz, and pineapple. Pairs best with a friend with their own bottle. — 19 days ago
Fantastic on the nose, perfect match with goat cheese — 10 days ago
A suicide soda fountain mix from five lots - Marsanne , Roussanne, Vermentino, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Merlot Rose’, Syrah, and Chardonnay. And maybe more. It’s a murky glowing magenta with wild berry candy notes. Strawberry, blackberry, boysenberry - check. A little pepper kick too. Good use of the rest of the bunch from the harvest is my guess. — a month ago
Wow. One of the great vineyards of the world. A formerly ignored part of the mosel. Now famous because of high scores. Brilliant wines from auslese to off dry to dry. For my money the top producer in the mosel.
Nose is the best peaches in the world. Insane peach perfume as it opens.
Palate is perfect peaches and candies sugar made from peaches. Acidity crushes the palate. Huge acidity and freshness. Amazing. Texture is perfect. It lets you know who’s boss but doesn’t interfere.
As this opens it flays the palate with a whip made of magic peaches.
Still young. Will add complexity as it ages. Will last 40 years or more.
I’m having this with goat cheese and truffle honey.
