Macauley

Bacigalupi Vineyard Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016

Needs to open up a bit more .. aromatics and palate are muted! But once it opens up, there’s good amounts of stone fruit, lemon zest and slight butteriness! — 14 days ago

Philipponnat

Cuvée "1522" Extra Brut Grand Cru Champagne Blend 2008

Very bright, zippy and primary. On the nose lime and slate with a sherbets zest. Bright and punchy on the palate with tart acidity. Young but fun. Doesn’t have the substance of some of the more serious 08’s — 16 days ago

I feel the same. Bought 6 and drank one. Certainly not Clos des Goisses.

Empire Estate

Reserve Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2016

Wonderful FLX Riesling! Big apple/pear fruit that almost seems sweet at first. But then the acidity takes over and balances the wine beautifully. Hint of petrol. Very Germanic and extremely well made. EE is an extremely underrated FLX producer. — 17 days ago

Nice, had I more time, likely we'd be drinking from larger glasses, and larger quantities.

Gotta try the Extra Anejo, it’s only about the same cost as an off year of Screaming Eagle,

@Paul T- Huntington Beach This was a sample bottle she had pulled to show client's, so free for her, and free for me to sample, that is the best price.
