Vivid, juicy red and blue fruit with a note of soot-covered pine needles. Absolutely delicious. — 9 days ago

Charles Smith

Stoneridge Vineyard Syrah 2014

Big surprise! The scent was floral, violets and perhaps some green herbs. But the first sip… straight pipe tobacco laced by dark blue berry and unripe fig. Where was that jammyness we noticed a few years ago? It drank quite addictive, though. Complex and intriguing. — 8 days ago

Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2013


Always a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc.
On the nose blue berries, cassis, earth, tobacco, cedar, pencil, medium to full bodied on the palate with the same fruit flavors, this wine does not impress at this moment, unresolved tannin and a short finish 92 DSP

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Outstanding claret. Old library, leather, tobacco and blue fruits on the perfume. Palate is perfectly balanced with blue fruits, cassis and fully integrated tannins and that mid-palate sweetness I love in old wines. Incredible and long finish. — 18 days ago

TOR Kenward Family Wines

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Another great Cabernet from Tor. A little cigar box with a lot of deep blue fruit - only one barrel made. It was very, very enjoyable. — 13 days ago

Domaine Henri Gouges

Les Vaucrains Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Quite reticent on the nose. Opens up over time. Light bodied and fresh. Grippy blue fruit and minerality. A hint of iron. Quite steely fruit and a decent finish — 13 days ago

Penfolds

Bin 28 Kalimna South Australia Shiraz 2018

A bit tight upfront but definitely opened up as time went on. Concentrated dark blue fruit encapsulated by warm vanilla oak. Plenty of acidity and backbone to be tried again in maybe five plus years. — 7 days ago

Weingut Hermann Ludes

Thörnicher Ritsch Spätlese Riesling 2019

Wow ! Fucktastic out of the gate.

Nose is so evocative of the mosel. Blue slate. Green apple skin.

Palate is crystalline sugar. Bright mineral. Perfect green apple. Wow.

Luscious. Some apricot. Rich but balanced. Fantastic density.

Iconic mosel spatlese.

Bought from fass selections.

Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2016

Can’t say I’d reach for a sweet fortified muscat by choice, but this wasn’t too bad. Expectedly rich with notes of ripe exotic fruits and candied citrus peels. While there was not much going on beyond that, it did go exceedingly well with some blue cheese. Having said that, I would have preferred to have matched the cheese with the sweet energy of a Spatlese or grandoise of a Sauternes. — 9 days ago
