Xmas gift and a reminder that paths converge & split just as easily. Take lessons from your regrets & always push forward. And drink fucking delicious Champagne. #swc #valkyrieselections — 3 years ago

Giovanni Rosso

Cerretta Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

A nice marriage of traditional and modern cellar work yields a wine of unmistakable Barolo character that can actually be understood now. Tannic & years away from its prime no doubt, but not a flashy oak bomb either. One to watch! #sortingtable #swc — 3 years ago

Suacci Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Damn, in our portfolio yet I've been sleeping on this bottling. Terrific. #vaughnduffy #swc — 3 years ago

Alban Vineyards

Patrina Alban Estate Syrah 2013

Backwards at first, but with air (& short ribs) this was fantastic. Made all the better by the new friends & family gathered around the table. Dinner w/ John & Lorraine. #alban #swc — 3 years ago

Azienda Valenti

Puritani Nerello Mascalese 2012

Dense and dried core of red fruit wrapped in a tannic & volcanic tantrum. Deceptively high acidity creeps in on the finish of what promises to be a long-lived and thought provoking wine. Held strong for several days after opening. #thesortingtable #swc — 3 years ago

Channing Daughters

Scuttlehole Long Island Chardonnay 2014

Inox & blocked MLF. The crunchy green & yellow orchard fruit of humble Chablis, with a salty oyster shell finish. Come out of your scuttlehole, little crabs! #channingdaughters #licharacter #swc — 3 years ago


H Block Hudson Vineyards Cabernet Franc Merlot 2014

Wide diurnal swings under the California sun amplifies all the varietal marks of CF. This one avoids heaviness with style. From dub-mag. #arietta #swc — 3 years ago


Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Vibrant & fresh red fruit opens, followed by a floral & woodsy character. Sweet touch of oak rounds off the nicely acidic palate. Killer first vintage! #averæn #swc — 3 years ago

Santa Marta Montecucco Sangiovese 2013

Exceptional value in Tuscan Sangiovese. Sometimes that "value" word gets played for pleasant wine that's cheap. But I'm really taken back by the dense, savory and food-ready style. Vibrant acidity and no oak sticking out. #degrazia #swc — 3 years ago

Broadley Vineyards

Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Nothing forced about this. Soulful and honest Pinot from two families of growers with 60 vintages combined experience. #broadleyvineyards #swc — 3 years ago
