Snap Dragon

Turley

Dragon Vineyard Zinfandel 2015

Pun withstanding, paired well to spicy Indian food. Thick, viscous with dried red fruits and white pepper. Reminds me a tad of Tawnys, on the nose. — 9 days ago

Weingut Weltner

Rödelseer Küchenmeister Trocken Sylvaner 2017

Sugar snap peas and buttercream on the nose. Good minerals, good acidity, structure, linearity. Some grapefruit zest on the tongue and a lanolin, waxy finish. If this were my house white I’d guzzle this stuff. I need to see how it develops with some years in the cellar. — 3 years ago

Luigi Baudana (G.D. Vajra)

Dragon Langhe Bianco Chardonnay Blend 2015

Sooo elegant! A full mouth feel combined with nuanced stone fruit acidity and food friendly minerality.  Ideal for September/October when an Indian summer begs for one more summer dish yet desiring the fuller mouth feel than goes with Tuscan Sausage/Kale/Cauliflower soup.  — 7 days ago

Château Quintus

Le Dragon de Quintus Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

A deep deep ruby color in the glass. Long legs and a wide brim. Medium intensity on the nose with notes of red fruit up top soon after opening. There’s really pleasant rhubarb and spice. You get hints that this is definitely not a heavyweight bruiser of a wine early on. Just a faint whiff of new leather and vanilla. As time passes, it grows a bit with more dark fruits coming to play and a nice core of greenery.

Pro-tip: buy second label wines. They’re so much fun and far easier to acquire. This fun Right Bank baby has elegance and complexity for days. Mostly Merlot with a chunk of Cabernet Franc, it’s incredibly smooth but still thrilling. Still so youthful and fresh, it has years to go. The fruit on the palate is dark and brooding but alive. The finish is long with a touch of cinnamon and spice and everything nice. Stellar stuff.
