Domaine Leflaive

Les Pucelles Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 1996

Decanted for a few hours and taken to Kochi in Hells Kitchen. Light straw color. Vibrant and viscous in the glass. Old Leflaive petrol and reductive nose. Notes of citrus fruit, lemon crème, wet stones, petrol, tan spice, hazelnut and white flowers. Good balance of rich fruit with still strong acidity. Long finish. Bottles this fresh easily have a decade or more of pleasure in front of them. At peak but still has plenty to give. — a year ago

Taken From Granite

North Yuba Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Wow. Dusty, sweet, such pure deep red ripe fruit. Cooked cranberries, granite, spice, lots of energy. Palate is thrilling, palate isn’t quite as complex. A pretty sweetness on the finish but this is so fresh and tart at the same sime. Mature but nowhere near fading.

Finally a cult Cali cab I can get behind!

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1991

Taken to Ridge Vineyards to pair with their Library tasting. Deep scarlet color, almost opaque. Fragrant nose. Notes of blackberry, blueberry, tobacco, earth, saddle leather and some anise. Silky in the mouth like 70s valour. Awesome juice. Served a glass blind to a sr. staffer who guessed it as the 92. Well done sir. — 2 years ago

Cigar City Brewing

Jai Alai India Pale Ale

One of the finest ipa’s available. Smelling it, you might think Seville Oranges, but this is no marmalade. It’s resinous, bitter, but not over the top. You always want more.
Paired with spicy coconut shrimp, ya!
