You’re easily pleased and you’re probably not the one making the decision for what to drink at dinner with your friends. 160-200: House Tyrell (“Growing Strong”) When it comes to wine, you’re probably well-versed, but you’re not the type to be loud about it. You soak in the new styles and actively seek out new labels. You tend to feel overlooked by your winebuff friends, but they don’t know what you have hidden in your cellar. 210-250: House Stark (“Winter is Coming”) There are more important things in life than being picky when it comes to wine. That said, you do have some basic ground rules and your loyalty lies with a few favorites that you’ve come across along your wine journey. 260-300: House Targaryen (“Fire and Blood”) You know what you like and don’t like when it comes to wine. You have a sneaky side and always let your friends think they’ve brought the best bottle, yet surprise them all with a wild card. However, you seek out new wines to be popular, not necessarily because you like doing so. 310-350: House Baratheon (“Ours is the Fury”) You’re a double edged sword. You’re independent and a natural born leader that always brings a reliable bottle to the party; however, your stubbornness keeps you from trying new wines from regions outside your comfort zone. 360-400: House Lannister (“Hear Me Roar!” , “A Lannister Always Pays His Debts”) You believe wine is to be enjoyed. You enjoy tradition, but you don’t mind bending the rules and going outside of your comfort level now and again — but of course, this is all in your own best interest. Knowledge is power, after all. 400-460: House Greyjoy (“We Do Not Sow” , “What Is Dead May Never Die”) You’ve mounted your high horse and you’re not getting off. You’re set in your ways and you’d rather sacrifice your soul than change them.

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Stunning and better than most winery’s top bottlings, the 2017 ‘Willamette Valley’ Pinot Noir is another sensational wine made by one of the most underrated winemakers in North America, Brian Marcy. The nose is seductive and highly perfumed with rose petals, guava puree, cigar ash and suggestions of peat moss that all build in the glass. The wine shows off a downright sexy texture, showing a great combination of weight and minerality. Guava puree, red raspberry cordial, blood orange zest and white truffle flavors all dance on the palate. A seriously good wine, this will continue to cellar well over the next fifteen years.

Love this wine. It smells like raspberry cornmeal pizza crust with black olives, and tastes like vibrant strawberry rootbeer with rhubarb, rosemary & a dash of raspberry balsamic. Pairs well with late night puzzling in sports bras & sweats. — 2 years ago

Montalbera

Laccento Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato 2012

QPR-wise, this wine is a 9.8. Nose is a 9.7. With cranberry cheddar, this wine is a 9.9. With dinner, it bows down a bit too much...9.1. By itself, it's a little thin...9.1. Complementary wine but do NOT drink without fare. 100% Piedmont Ruché, this wine has a great rose petal floral and red berry perfume nose. I THINK this is what the label says as well, but my Italiano isn't so bueno. Entry of red berry fruits, cola, mint, Lee's acidic than I thought it would be. Middle is more black cherry but retaining all of the front character. Finishes rather soft by itself and with food. Dried herb and walnuts peaking in. NICE. Been holding off as I thought this one was done. Grabbed another bottle to open when this one was declared dead...that one will have to wait another night! In the sweet spot right now. — 3 months ago

Domaine de Chantemerle

Fourchaume Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Clear, light golden yellow color. Aromas of stone and tropical fruits. Made from 40-year old vines, aged in 100% stainless steel. The palate shows lemon citrus with crisp apple and peach notes. This medium-body wine, crisp acidity, good balance and mouthfeel, finishes smooth, a little creamy on the end. Very Nice! — 3 months ago

Ode to Lulu California Old Vine Rosé Mourvèdre Blend 2018

Little chilly here still, to say it’s rosé season, but it just feels right paired to roasted salmon! This one’s a nice example balancing tension, minerality, and plush fruit. — 3 months ago

Clos de L'Échelier Dampierre Sur Loire Saumur Chenin Blanc 2016

9.6

Nose is lemony, mineral and precise. Almonds, vanilla, herbs. Gorgeous detail and so subtle. Palate has that German acid! Electric. So much acidity and lemon lime tinged fruit and also a hint of opulence. So fresh, so clean, so pure. Amazing. Likely the cleanest Chenin I’ve ever had. Complex minerality throughout and astonishing length. Amazing compact mouthfeel, explosive yet precise, pithy and youthful fruit and top top purity. Wow. Level of super 1er Cru White burg like a Meursault Perrieres or Chassagne La Grand Ruchottes. The best bottle of Echelier Blanc I’ve had so far. — 3 months ago

Fontanasanta Vigneti Delle Dolomiti Nosiola 2015

This is a very complex wine. Do not drink until it’s open at least 1 hour, or it will taste like cleaning fluid. Once it settles down after breathing, it is a powerful white wine tasting of lemon, tea, and wood. It does overwhelm food, so it is hard to imagine what to pair it with. Definitely a different wine experience. — a year ago

Château Miraval

Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2017

It is not only the first real sunny day in our garden that makes this a good rosé. It is simply well made. Beautiful pale as Provence rosés are. Some flowers like roses and strawberries in the nose. Tastes simply excellent. If you can buy it for the right price it is in my opinion a very good glass of wine. — 3 months ago
