Halgans Trocken Riesling 2020

Full day decant. So intensely mineral. Like drinking stones coursed through with a not unpleasant sweatiness. Medium finish with grapefruit & unripe mango notes. Fabulous now and worth stashing away to revisit. — 2 years ago

Domaine de la Bongran

Cuvée E.J. Thevenet Quintaine Viré-Clessé Chardonnay 2016

Im into this, asked for a recommendation for a good Chardonnay and @David T provided.
Not sure how you go back to California Chardonnay after this🤷🏼‍♂️ bummer it took me so long to have some White Burgundy
Decant & let it warm up above cellar temp is what David said so I tried it, just gets better as it sits in the glass for a bit.

Azienda Agricola F.lli Cigliuti

Langhe DOC Nebbiolo 2019

savory notes of potpourri, incense & dried meats ~ plummy w black cherry, tar & dried Mediterranean herbs ~ food totally helped break down the tannins exposing the wine’s silky juiciness

Thank You
@Antonio Galloni for pointing out this incredible value!

St. Eden Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Mike R

Tasted library vintage of all five grand crus from 2014

St Eden - The nose carries the characteristic dark fruit and crème de cassis, and a very light hint of sage. The tell-tale yin and yang is in full display: Hedonic richness woven with cool minerality. The tannins serve as a guiding force, but are ever so fine as they persist on the finish.
