Union Sacré

Belle de Nuit Central Coast Gewürztraminer 2019

A gewürztraminer with 6 hours of skin contact. Intense sweet floral and ripe tree fruit aromas, a nice initial burst of acidity on the palate from tart grapefruit notes, but a smooth round body. #gotm2020 — 19 days ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

La Consulta Malbec 2016

First, graphite minerals, then some chocolate notes on the nose that continue on the palate. Smooth, more structured and elegant. On the bottle list vs the glass list. Online Malbec Class 5/28 #gotm2020 — a month ago

Tora Bay

Single Vineyard Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Super grassy citrus and GREEN! a little bell pepper at the end. Lots of acid, green and vegetal on the palate. So very different from Loire Valley. Table Wine online Get to Know Sauv Blanc class, and my #gotm2020 for May! Went fantastic with a green Thai curry the next night. — 2 months ago

Banyan

Monterey County Gewürztraminer 2018

Very floral nose... honeysuckle and roses, and some fruit... lychee? Medium body and a bit of acid, tart grapefruit and lychee. Paired awesome with Thai takeout! #gotm2020 — 23 days ago

Château du Caillau

Cahors Malbec 2017

Less fruit, more herbs and minerals in the nose. Lots of tannins, overall earthy and rustic. Online Malbec Class 5/28 #gotm2020 — a month ago

Cyprus

Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

A barrel aged Sauv Blanc!? Still light in color but a bit more golden. Very subtle and weird nose when opened, getting more peaches and tropical fruits a few days later. Bigger body and silky ("weighty") and more creamy and vanilla bean notes. Table Wine online Get to Know Sauv Blanc class, and my #gotm2020 for May! Wasn't a huge fan at class, hi enjoying a few days later with baked goat cheese! — 2 months ago

Les Jamelles

Vin de Pays d'Oc Viognier 2017

Slightly like a chardonnay on the nose with yellow apple notes, but also some citrus... Orange blossom, and beeswax. Tart citrus acid on the tip of the tongue but a bigger body to follow, lots of ripe fruit. #gotm2020 — a month ago

Gouguenheim

Ocaso Mendoza Malbec 2018

Blackberries and sweet tobacco on the nose and pallet, some drying tannins that linger but not strongly. Nice red summer sipper, could take a bit of a chill too. Online Malbec Class 5/28 #gotm2020 — a month ago

François Cazin (Le Petit Chambord)

Vendangé a la main Cheverny White Blend 2018

All minerals (wet rocks) and citrus (lemon) on the nose. Light buy silky, acid but not striking, lingering chalky minerals and some apple notes. Table Wine online Get to Know Sauv Blanc class, and my #gotm2020 for May! Went delicious with scallops after class! — 2 months ago

Viña Errazuriz

Max Reserva Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Flinty minerals on the nose, medium body and a good amount of acid hit the palate, a tart citrus that lingers with some mouth coating minerals. Had the tart acid of a cool climate Sauv Blanc but a different minerality compared to Loire Valley. Paired amazingly with jerk chicken and Caribbean rice and mango salsa #gotm2020 — 2 months ago
