Raventos i Blanc

de Nit Rosé Cava Blend 2017

Blasting cherry and stong strawberry aromas, fragrant. Wild berry flavors, almonds and some leesy notes. Pink hues, dry palate and simply over delivering. Great sparkling from the family that brought you Freixenet. #sparklingwine #cava #wine — 2 months ago

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1994

1994 Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore


Off vintage. A difficult year. Lighter in color than expected. The red fruits were very much alive but on a very delicate structure. Still enjoyable but wanted more from
Ornellaia. (Edited: On the second day, Ornellaia delivered! Wow. It is still delicate but in a perfect harmony.)


オフヴィンテージ1994年のワイン。思っていた以上に薄い色。フルーツ感は健在でしたが、非常にデリケートな構造の中に存在しているとでも申しますか、難しい年だったことがわかるワインでした。楽しめるワインでしたが、Ornellaiaからはもう少し厚み、芳醇さが欲しかった。(編集・追記: 2日目。Ornellaiaはやってくれました。とてもデリケートな構造の中に完璧なハーモニーが!)

Downton Abbey

Bordeaux Blanc Muscadelle Sémillon 2018

This was a fun and very cheap buy! $4 and I found this at a great time since we girls are restarting Downton Abbey!
#Wine Lemon zest, citrus, high acidity. It’s missing pizzazz! But it’s $4 buy and a great fun buy.
Pairing: Sea salt and cheddar popcorn!

Clos De La Roilette

Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Gamay 2019

Wonderful #Gamay! This #Beajolais has tremendous structure. Grapey, cranberry, lasting. Potpourri on the palate and all over the nose along with dark berry and dried herbs. Very lifting and elegant. #wine — 2 months ago

Deux Vert Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Funny story! I actually got this wine because I was making a larger purchase of wines, and thought I should throw something different in the mix. Pinot Noir isn’t usually my go to wine, as it’s not as robust when it comes to reds. And, I like my reds bold, strong, and boy do I love it as they can unwind through the night, but onto this review!

#Wine Silky on the palette, vanilla, slight tannins, raspberry jam, and nice earthy aftertaste. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this! And I would buy a few bottles for my girlfriends, and I. It’s such a light wine that I would have this without food. If this wine were a flower it would be.... daisies 🤍 It’s simplicity reminds me of daises 🤍 Something, I don’t often! Happy about this surprise!
#Pairing Red Velvet Soufflé with whipped sour cream. It was a great pairing! I did some research and red velvet was a match for the Pinot Noir I had! No regrets here! Would definitely Iove to pair this with pork chops and a creamy mushroom sauce!

Selbach

Classic Riesling 2011

#Wine Sweet, crisp, apples, delicate, good body to it, a beautiful aroma of flowers. Without being overpowering like baby breath flowers. That type of beauty and simplicity to this Riesling.
#Pairing Well how do you bring a summer, spring, day drinking kind of wine into the fall and winter months? By firing 🔥 it up with some spicy curry along with cauliflower rice for a healthier option. PS it is very sweet so I would only pair it with spicy food or share it with your girlfriends who have a palette for sweets ✨

Quivira Vineyard and Winery

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2017

Revisited one of my old favorites. This #zinfandel is very dark in the glass with deep purple hues. The body is heavy and compact with a somewhat fresh and cassis like. Tasting a savory component as the seed. Mildly tannic, moderate acid. #wine — 2 months ago

Tragolargo Alicante Monastrell 2013

#Wine First off this wine has some strong aromas going on! I honestly felt like I was going to have to let it breathe for a while, but to my surprise once I took a sip! There was no need for it. Medium-light body, tannins, chewy, some leather, but enough fruits to come forth, and give it some variety with a dry after taste. It was a cheap wine and just a fun buy overall. Not in my top favorites, but I wouldn’t mind having it again with friends at an outdoor bbq ✨

#Pairing I had this with a steak salad. Not too shabby! ✨

Marqués de Murrieta

Ygay Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 1970

1970 Marques de Murrieta Ygay Reseva


50-year old wine. Drinking an old wine is adventurous and exciting. Upon opening, it was clear from the aroma and color that the wine was still alive! We could still taste the remaining fruits supported by the good balance of acidity. The wine went downhill after two glasses. With social-distancing in place, it was a quiet night but a wonderful moment tasting its history.



50年前のワイン、果たしてどんな味わいを見せてくれるのか。古いワインを開けるはワクワク、ドキドキしますね。開けた時の香り、色合いから、これはまだいける!と期待が高まります。未だ僅かにフルーツ感が感じられ、酸とのバランスも悪くない。最初の2杯以降は下り坂でしたが、歴史を感じることのできた静かな一時でした。
