Thanks @J Greene for the Coravin! Awesome gift. I justified using it on this great bottle tonight. Will have to get used to wine by the glass! — a month ago

Is there such a thing as wine by the glass? Sounds like getting up at 4 am

@Hugh O'Riordan you’re spot on. We just opened the bottle after having a glass each last night... this will be dangerous.

Domaine Pascal Cotat

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Beautiful and atypic character. Very distinguishing from this producer I believe. Beside the Sancerre tone a deliciously candied citrus and stone fruit aromas — a month ago

Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

A delicious cab that tingles on your tongue. Dark fruit. Will age more but tannins seems pretty resolved. Maybe 3 years to perfection. — a month ago

@Mike R, love you, man. I’m struggling to decide what we should bring. We were thinking Ridge Montebello and Morgado Sage Ridge. Your thoughts? 🙂

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The 2015 ‘Oakville’ Cabernet Sauvignon is showing marvelously at its early stage in development. Needing a one hour decant to fully arouse, the wine slowly reveals ripe dark currants with tar and anise aromatics that take shape in the glass. The palate shows a excellent power and acidity with intense dark fruits, and shades of creme de cassis and Turkish coffee. Enjoyable now in its youth, this will continue to evolve over the next fifteen years. Drink 2019-2033 — a month ago
