L'Ermitage Brut Anderson Valley Chardonnay Blend 2012

An interesting Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blend. Complex flavors that didn’t come across as a brut sparkling wine to me. #5 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019. — 2 months ago


Nerobaronj Sicilia Nero d'Avola 2012

Sicilian wine evening, wine #5
Quite rich & fruitforward with plums & prunes + some iodine and balsamico notes. Despite being rich, this wine retains nice freshness and authenticity. On the palate rich & round yet nicely balanced and with good length. Polished, juicy tannins, too. This is a very nice wine.

California Dundee Syrah 2016

Technically, this is the Gold Series #6 from Bien Nacido. It was bottled separately from the #5 White Hawk because it was so unique. This tasted like a great wine from Cornas. Dark ripe fruit, iron and white pepper. 94+ @Delectable Wine — 3 months ago

White Hawk Vineyard Syrah 2016

This is the gold series #5 White Hawk. Instead of combining White Hawk and Bien Nacido like in the past they decided to make single vineyard bottling of White Hawk and Bien Nacido. It was pretty tight even with some air and more southern Rhône in style than the Bien Nacido. This wine is going to be great with some time. — 3 months ago
