Though not the same as it was pre-COVID -19, a handful of us were able to gather (while keeping our distance) to celebrate being back together and opened some fun wines to share. Wine is always better with good company.

En mag. Drinking Aubert in any format is a treat, but this was my first en mag. I think it reinforced my thought that their Hudson chard is the most accessible but also one to not hold as long. While this was drinking wonderfully, I’d imagine in 750 it may start shedding some fruit and entering a different phase. Aromatically it’s less in your face and more elegant with honeysuckle, lemon bar and baking spices. Juicy stone fruits, brown sugar, lemon cream and sea salt wash over the palate. The finish is round and rich as expected with their Hudson. Thanks for opening @Keith Fisher

14’ Aubert Hudson. Hit or miss for me this 2014 from Mark. Not sad that it was my last bottle. Had one very good bottle out of the four I purchased. -at BLT Waikiki, Hawaii

Come on!
That 5 year window for 14 Hudson severed it well. In it’s youth it was a bit hollow & not showing up. Start drinking them over the next 5 years.

This will not be confused with Burgundy, but a beautiful Cali Chard and nice pair with Shelter in Place Shabu Shabu ala Misuk. A crowd (of two) pleaser.

2014. Interesting 20 years comparison with the Meursault. While very much in the CA style, crisp lemon and green apple character backed by a healthy dose of oak. Yet everything remains in balance all the way through the finish. This a a strong upside potential.

Very rich and flavorful. Lots of green apple and hazelnut.

Velvety hint of oak good acidity. Perfect with steamed lobster!

Sadly, my final post on Delectable, at least under the current construct. I've truly enjoyed the Community and Social aspects of the App and will miss that. Although I can certainly afford $6 a month, I don't need or want Vinous content within the App, as I already pay for that separately. I thought I would just put up with the ads, but after pop ups when I touch certain elements (in addition to the in line ads), well... delectable is more annoying than pleasurable for me at this point. As a wise person once said, if it's not fun anymore, don't do it. Didn't quite make it to 2,000 wines but will figure out another way to share the great wines I've been blessed to enjoy, as long as it is fun. All the best to everyone! Deleting App in 3, 2, 1 PS- this wine was pretty good 😊 PSS - the Typo in Vineyard in the wine name is not mine.
