Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2017

Typical bojo raspberries, boysenberry, tomato-y iodine quality. There’s more structure here compared w/the rest of the gang. — 5 years ago

Cakebread Cellars

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2017

For some reason I had been craving this for weeks so today I had to satisfy my desires. Chalky, lots of minerality, and a slight synthetic nuance 🤔 Good nonetheless. — 5 years ago

@David T My experience with Cakebread is limited, but what I’ve had I’ve always enjoyed; namely their old school Vine Hill Ranch Cab. I’ve got a 2010 Dancing Bear just waiting to be polished off 🤔 Soon, I think.

@Ryan Vento Wait in the DB... I'm sitting on some '06, which I still do not believe is ready yet.

@Severn Goodwin That’s what the little voice in the back of my head was saying, thanks for vocalizing it. I certainly like the idea of sitting on it because it’s a special bottle, so I’ll hold off on it 👌🏻 Looking forward to whenever the time comes, though.

Domaine Fernand Girard

La Garenne Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Fresh. Tons of minerals in this crisp, refreshing wine. Some pear/ light green apple. Acidity spot on. Rocked with fresh halibut. — 5 years ago

Toscana Red Blend 2010

60% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot & 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Nose has spring rose, rain moistened red raspberry, black currant and fresh sage.

Palate has lightly tannic blackberry, wet leather, ripe black currant, cigar box, wet clay and tarry black cherry.

Paired with a long cooked Bolognese sauce over fettuccine. Decanted ~3hr, more time in the decanter would benefit. Future bottles can be 2022+

Happy Father's Day 2019 to all. Today I'm posting pictures of our kids, yes they are all furry, independent and somewhat self-interested. Two boys (8) and two girls (2), sisters, all rescued. They generally bring the utmost of joy to my life on a daily basis. It has been a rainy and relaxing day here, everyone is loving the slow pace of life today.

I think that Delectable needs to be able to tag cat+wine posts so that I can make a bookmark for felines.

Michel Gahier

La Vigne du Louis Arbois Trousseau 2017

12.5%. Very very good. Hint of brett - tart and closed. But boy is this complex. Earthy, Kashmir red pepper, perhaps even a hint of tomatoes 🍅. Orange bitters on the back palate. Like silk much better than many Burgs I had in the last six months. From Max Kogod and I will buy the last bottle and the other cuvée from this producer best Trousseau I had in a long time! — 5 years ago
