@Dawn E. I meant to mention this last night. See if you can find some Ferren Rose. For Napa/Sonoma Rosé, a little better than the Paper Planes.

Foreau - Domaine du Clos Naudin

Vouvray Sec Chenin Blanc 2015

Muted aromatics of orange. Palate of apple and pear with a herbal overtone. Taught minerals and bright acid support it’s medium weight. Very dry, almost austere. Nevertheless a very distinctive wine just chocked full of style. Excellent with roasted chicken breast with truffle and confit chicken leg from Covid-19 take out from @Copine. — 4 years ago

Château Talbot

Saint-Julien Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009

This Talbot is in the zone, full-on pencil lead and camphor leads a fleshy, sexy but high-class experience. Merlot-driven black-red fruit shines through, tannins resolved and big, round with a smoky tobacco on the back end. Nice. — 4 years ago

Franco Fiorina

Barolo Nebbiolo 1967

Great virtual tasting tonight with my great friends. This wine was just gorgeous with a nose of truffles, potpourri, pine needles, and dried roses. On the palate, dried fruit and roses followed later by sweeter fruits and hints of balsamic. Really lovely. I just wish we could have tasted this together in person! — 4 years ago

Holla 🙌🏼 @Eric LaMasters big baller move with the ‘67 Barolo. Props.

Opus One

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

Bottle 2,000 on delectable.
Had to go with my favorite opus. Parkers original score of 95 is a moot point now. I wish I had kept more of these instead of flipping on auction a few years ago.

Hudson Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay 2014

This will not be confused with Burgundy, but a beautiful Cali Chard and nice pair with Shelter in Place Shabu Shabu ala Misuk. A crowd (of two) pleaser. — 4 years ago

Shabu Shabu reminds me of an INXS album

@Bill Bender Great band Bill. Michael Hutchence was one of the great frontmen of all time. Up there with Freddie Mercury and Mick Jagger IMO.
