Falernia Gran Reserva Elqui Valley Syrah

Dark fruits and smoke. It’s been bottle #3 twice, so no insightful tasting notes to share. Liked it a lot both times though, so try making it bottle #1 some night for a clearer take on it — 3 months ago

La Landonne Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2006

Blind Rhône’s from Saturday. My #1 wine in flight 2 and also the group #1. Again, this just completely outclassed the competition in the flight. Oozing with depth, concentration and brutish elegance. Black cherry, rich earth, sauvage and a lovely spice/pepper under-current. — a month ago

Celebrating my 10th anniversary with our friends from Gallo! What a treat. This is still a 🍼 👶 baby. Yes Nirvana!! — 2 months ago

When I go to Sicily I always try to go Etna Cru. With Gaja buying some vines there I’m afraid the price of the crus won’t be accessible much longer.

I really want to go to Sicily. It is definitely the #1 on my list for next time I get to go to Europe. My father in-law's family is all from there.

Chiroubles Gamay 2017

Beautiful translucent light ruby with a clear rim. Light-Medium bodied. Fruity..raspberries..cherries..hibiscus..rose petals..Sweet Tarts...grape Bazooka Bubble Gum (1960's kids like me might remember this) and pine forest.
This is one of those wines that has incredible complexity...just want to keep my nose in the glass...swirling and taste!
Bravo Guy Breton. Tasting this from my
#1 favorite glass..Riedel Vinum Pinot Noir/Burgundy something about the balance of this glass is exceptional!

I was just at a candy store in San Luis Obispo that had Bazooka. I told my kids the 70's urban myth that it was made with spider eggs. So they bought it.

Domaine Antonin Guyon

Clos du Roy Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1979

Birth year bottle #1 popped today to celebrate 40! Glad the cork on this one was popped today. definitely the good advice of someone who knew a little more than I did. This wine was not bad, but it was definitely not stellar. Probably about 5 to 7 years post prime. The news was a lot of must and weed and cut grass. I did let this sit for about 20 minutes to slow ox and figure out some things. The entry was a combination of tart cherry, a little hint of plum and raisin. Fruit profile was definitely giving more of the way to a dried tobaccoit was still a little bit funky and had plenty of soil and mushroom. Definitely past its prime, but enjoyable. Very glad that I only have one bottle. — 3 months ago
