Worthy Brewing

Hundred Acre Vineyard

Ark Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Day 10 of covid isolation and finally a negative test. Yeah!.....had to break out something nice to celebrate. Prior notes mostly apply. This is a beauty of a wine worthy of any celebration. Cheers! — 6 days ago

Weingut Hermann Ludes

Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Kabinett 1995

1995; Decanted ~4H. Golden straw color in the Gabriel Glas.

Nose has over-ripe peach, dehydrated apricots, salted honey, limestone paste, faint orange marmalade, damp white pepper and fresh (blanched) peach peel (make some peach jam and you'll know this aroma).

Palate has apricot juice, warm clementine flesh, orange zest, dried lemon, candied orange and dehydrated peach.

Wow, wow, wow, such a fantastic bottle!

As noted by others, it seems like there was high bottle pressure on these '95 Kabi's, my first Ludes leaker. Probably at about low shoulder before I realized; cork was solid but spent the last ~6wks standing up in preparation for today.

Our local Stoat (Short-tailed Weasel) arrived this afternoon, it's been a while since the last appearance and I happened to have my phone handy; a picture is worthy!

Isenhower Cellars

Prima Rosa Yakima Valley Barbera Rosé 2021

New vintage, 722 cases made. Label promotes the wine as “fresh, lively, and dry”. Orange, red and pink in color, sparkling clarity; label notes that bentonite clay was used for “clarity and stability”. Nice to see such transparency (with no pun intended); honesty and disclosure are worthy goals here. A touch of sulfite and funk in the nose initially, this blows off later. Tutti frutti flavors, but mostly cherry, good acid, mercifully dry. Strawberry lemon finish with slight skin astringency. Tasty and true to varietal. — a month ago

Warmer weather makes the rose wines desirable. Cheers!

Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2007

Last of a 3-pack I bought a few years ago. Should have bought more! Thankfully the ridiculous pricing for the 2008 keeps this 2007 an easy choice when looking for more great champagne.

Having had the 2006, 2007 and 2008 all within the last 6 months or so, it’s fun to see the differences. 2006 seems to be a bigger champagne in regards to richness, yet still has great structure…2008 is wound up crazy tight, extremely chiseled and age worthy…the 2007 is a more accessible version of the three with lots of similarities to 2006.

Right down the middle in terms of style (doesn’t come across reductive or oxidative in profile). Tart lemon, yeasty, chalk, and a hint of nuttiness on the nose. Comtes always has this kiss of freshly baked lemon scone note on the nose to me. Not as multidimensional as 2006, but tons of layers here both aromatically and on the palate. Continuously evolving revealing limestone, powder sugar dusted lemon bars, and roasted almonds. Lemon-lime mineral grip isn’t as prevalent as the 2008 on the finish. This can certainly age, but with how good it is now, pop and enjoy!

Cibonne

Clos Cibonne Cuvée Spéciale des Vignettes Tibouren Rosé 2019

This is a wine worthy of a case to see how it ages year by year. Grown up today, you have to think this gets interesting in swervy ways a decade from now.

There's a spectacular satisfaction in immediate restraint from fruit. This is so savory. Herbs for hours. Rosemary and thyme and cinnamon dusted dried orange and butterscotch.

The burnt orange color is stunning, but the most spectacular component is the viscous texture. Feels like it should and could be syrupy, it’s thick instead like a bone dry salty saline solution, wonderfully oxidized.

Do not drink this cold - this begs for cellar temp

Sky Vineyards

Mount Veeder Syrah 2011

Great expression! 9ish years of bottle age and still a lot of life left in this bottle. The acid is what makes this wine a true age worthy bottle. Blackberry, blackberry bramble, earthy leather. — 2 months ago
