Valmiñor 2017 Albariño (SRP $18): Fresh, crisp, and zesty describes winemaker Cristina Mantilla’s latest release. There are flavors of grapefruit, fresh picked white flowers, and stone fruit, buttressed by refreshing acidity. An excellent food wine—pairing opportunities are nearly endless. #Albariño #RiasBaixas #AccessAlbarino #wine #WineWednesday — a month ago
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!

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 — 3 months ago
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 — 9 months ago
