Le Mont Benoit Champagne Blend

Some peachy and pear notes backed up a mineral core. Sharp bit of acidity keeps you palate on alert. Refreshing way to start dinner after a long week. #happyfriday — 2 years ago

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2004

Chateau Musar 2004 Bekaa Valley Rouge (SRP $53): Pale-medium garnet in color, this medium-bodied wine leads with tart red berry fruit, dried cranberries and earthy flavors framed by notes of worn leather, sweet tobacco leaf, forest floor, dried flowers, and fennel seed. It opens nicely over time and ends with more earthy/funky qualities than the red fruit you catch up-front. Well-balanced, a generous underpinning of fresh acidity supports a sleek yet age-worthy frame. There is this savory complexity combined with pretty aspects and a funky core that I like in this wine.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Cuvée Duvault-Blochet Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Still very young and full of energy. Approachable but has a long life ahead of it. Concentrated core of red fruit with a loooooooong finish of raspberries. #happyfriday — 2 years ago

Addendum Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

@AddendumWinebyFess is a new wine project by Santa Barbara winery Fess Parker specializing in ultra-premium, small-lot wines from select Napa Valley sites. This bottling represents 1 of 4; all from the 2014 vintage; all 100% Cab, save for one Cab/Syrah blend from Atlas Peak. The Addendum 2014 from Rutherford is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is deep, concentrated, and richly fruited, with excellent acid/tannin balance. There are leading flavors of black plum, currant, and spice cake, followed by dark cocoa and mocha notes. A good dose of oak (matured 28 months in 100% new French oak barrels) was thrown at this wine but the ripe, concentrated fruit handles it superbly well. This Cab is built to age but very enjoyable now. I recommend decanting for about one hour.

Meursault Chardonnay 2011

The oak and minerality stand out on their own. Would love to revisit in a few years once they've calmed and melded together. #happyfriday #meursault #marchand — 4 years ago

Jean François Ganevat

Cuvée Marguerite Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2012

What a Chardonnay! This is why you can never ignore Jura wines. Racing acidity, honey melon, and white flowers. #magnum #happyfriday — 2 years ago

Revana Family Vineyard

St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Earlier today we hiked 5 miles on some gorgeous mtn trails - it literally took my breath away.  And right about now I am feelin the burn immensely, and I luvvvv it. It's Friday and it's fun, but something is missing....ah yes, Heidi Barrett and her elegant Revana Cab. I have appreciated her work for a while (Dalla Valle, Amuse Bouche, Screaming Eagle, should I keep going?) - and who doesn't respect someone who always tries their best to make it perfect (with 5 100pt wines to her name, ridiculous). This 2005 is drinking really nicely right now - a total fruitbomb. Lots of vanilla and cherry flavor. Sidenote: I have heard great things about later vintages too since TRB subsequently took over. #happyfriday #heidibarrett — 4 years ago
