Concha y Toro

Gran Reserva Serie Riberas Ribera del Rapel Chardonnay 2016

Concha y Toro 2016 Serie Riberas Gran Reserva Chardonnay (SRP $17): This Chardonnay is from the producer’s Riverbank series, showcasing single-vineyard wines that are in close proximity to one of Chile’s major rivers. The fruit for this Chardonnay was sourced from Ucúquer vineyard in Colchagua, approximately 10 miles from the mouth of the Rapel River. This wine is mouth-coating, with round, creamy texture. Flavors of tropical fruit—namely grilled pineapple, sugar-laced apple tart, beeswax, and lemon zest, are framed by medium toast and brown baking spice. There’s just enough acidity to keep it honest and enjoyable—very nice with smoked salmon rolls. #Chile #ChileanWine #Colchagua #Chardonnay #wine #winelover #wineblogger #winewriter #myvinespot #winewednesday — 11 days ago

Erse Etna Rosso Nerello Blend

good 'erse' wine erupts on Etna: spicy red-berry delicacy powered via the volcano (& the grapes Nerello Mascalese & Nerello Cappuccio) in Tenuta di #Fessina Etna Rosso 'Erse,' toothsome with sublime pumpkin - #Sicily #Italy #WineWednesday — 10 months ago

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Grands Échézeaux Pinot Noir 1971

1971 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grands Échezeaux in magnum: hoped for an "8," landed a "10". Explosive nose of rose water and licorice and molasses, joined later by baked apple. Rich and exceedingly smooth texture, almost like olive oil. The finish keeps going, like the gustatory equivalent of ocean waves, pure and vibrant and fresh. Like drinking sunlight. - #DRC #wine #Burgundy #winewednesday — a year ago

Concha y Toro

Reserva Casillero del Diablo Chardonnay 2016

Concha y Toro 2016 Casillero del Diablo Reserva Chardonnay (SRP $12): Here’s a budget-friendly Chardonnay from Chile that satisfies. It’s medium-bodied, bright throughout, and quite gulpable. There are aromas and upfront flavors of yellow-fleshed fruit and melon with undertones of baking spice and toasted nuts. I enjoyed this wine on its own and with smoked salmon topped with a horseradish caper sauce. #Chile #Chardonnay #ChileanWine #winelover #wineblogger #myvinespot #WineWednesday — a month ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1986

‪when in doubt, "'86 it" - 1986 Château d' #Yquem 🙏 beyond-the-imagination honey-and-hazelnut intensity, with so-sexy crème brûlée notes, kept fresh by a perfect undercurrent of acidity and a slight marmelade-like bitterness - a glass of impossible beauty #WineWednesday — 6 months ago

Laurel Glen Vineyard

Sonoma Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Laurel Glen Vineyard 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon: Opaque purple, very aromatic, good richness of fruit, length and texture; ripe tannins, juicy acidity. This wine has a [ripe] dark fruit character, suggestive of purple stone fruit and blackberries, with understated red undertones and lingering spice notes. A delicious estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon from the Sonoma Mountain appellation. Get some on your table. Cheers!
