Crisp and refreshing. It is complex and balanced, with lime and peach flavors which are sweet in taste. The pleasant soft and fragrant bouquet stays on the tip of the tongue after drinking. This wine is with a vigorous aftertaste and perfect long lasting structure.
Am alluring, sexy and delicious rendition of a classic Pinot Noir. The wine, being rich in texture, showing great viscosity, a long finish and elegant tannins, is drinkable in its youth, but would benefit from some cellaring or extended decanting.
If you are in the Vancouver area and @burgnutt88 invites you to a wine tasting, then you are in for something really good.

Many thanks Jojo, Jack, and the rest of the crew for the fun time!
Some have been asking why I have been posting a lot less recently. Part of the answer is in the picture.
Obviously not related to this beta delta by @alois.lageder , an interesting blend of merlot and lagrein which provided great company to a simple but beautiful pasta dish!
Гребешок, устрица, кукумария, трепанг, трубач... знакомые каждому приморцу морские деликатесы.😋

Under the Law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
A most obnoxious nose rises out of this dark ruby and lightly staining glass. Bubble-gum under bleachers in hot sun, cola on pavement in August, pomace in the sun, alcohol wavering off in sunset mirage-waves across the I-15, bleary from a week of work, that Red Bull workin up the muster to make the next 12 hours memorable. Strange thick roasted peat amassed together around what I can only imagine the winery calls "deep blackberry richness" on the back label and chemically acid on bare metal. An egg-white sort of roundness fulfills expectations of "Napa Cab", but shallowly--with leg bent on mustiness. And overall: Alcohol.
In the mouth, acid buried under a saccharine glow, immediately turning to straight tannin. That's it. No fruit. No spice. No briar. No funk. No minerality, no nothing. Just bitter red liquid thinned out with... really, I tried to think of something nice or at least slightly validating to add here but sorry, it's just more bitterness. Bitter red liquid thinned out with more bitterness.
Offsite wine storage is something that we had only recently considered. We have approximately 50 bottles of storage at our apartment between two solid little wine fridges. This does a great job of holding short-term wine - wines Mot is planning on drinking within the next 12 months (Zins aside - we’ll pull a few of those back this fall). But when it comes to keeping anything for more than about 12 months, 50 bottles became somewhat… restrictive.
First in our thought process was to do with Turley. We absolutely adore their beautiful, big bottomed bottles, buuuut they do not exactly leave much room in the fridge (unless you’re talking about their Cab - then their bottle is as thin as it is delicious). So a few bottles of Turley? Well, when you realize that we have a case in hand, and a few cases on the way, we were in trouble. Compound that with her Champagne, and space was going fast.
The other thing had to do with a desire to start verticals. Mot enjoys Chianti, and has been curious about starting the aging process with a few iconic producers (hit us with some recommendations). However, buying bottles of something you’re not planning on drinking for five, ten, or twenty years is tough when you know that, for now, our storage is limited. This takes away that reluctance, as we know we now have space to think in a long term way as we approach our wine acquisitions.
We’re excited - it will add to the fun of searching, and leave off the pressure caused by loss of space. So now that we have room… Any ideas of verticals we should start? So far, we have started stacks of Bedrock, Fontodi, and Turley, and are looking to expand on our Deux Punx, Fine Disregard, and Enfield. Cheers!
This is nice. Go ahead and hate. This area is #positivevibesonly Nice uncloying nose, brilliant acidity and perfectly austere fruit running abreast with a bit of sexy petrol. I would kill to know what the RS is on this. Alcohol 13-0. I'm guessing 1.7? Probably a twenty or thirty thousand case wine and once again @jlohrwines just fucking nails it. Laugh all you want about these wines, they are all solid wines, completely all the way across all of their price points. But why does it have to be white Riesling? #racist

New favorite wine town: #SutterCreek . This is where it’s happening - Amador County. Interesting varietals (Alicante B at @leonifarms, vermentino at @bgvineyards), killer Barbera (the now-signature grape of #AmadorCounty ), a love of Rhône and Italian fruit, and down-to-earth people and prices. I joined a few clubs, I bought a lot of wine, and I can’t wait to share them with friends and family. Have you been digging any Amador wines lately?🍷
p.s. thanks @sierrawineguy and @foothillswino for the great recommendations, too. 👌

Vino Dessera Misket 2018. We enjoyed Doğan Bey’s Misket during our sailing trip. This is the style of misket I am always looking for with an attractive fruity nose and a tropical fruit with a crisp acidity on the palate. Well done Doğan bey.
#Lafóa#Chardonnay 2017, Cantina Colterenzio (Kellerei Schreckbichl) Alto-Adige 🇮🇹 Just felt in love with Chardonnay, beautiful boutique with mature melon and pastries. Great structure and beautiful acidity which makes it easy to pair with a plate of home-made gnocchis with (rich) butter and Parmesan 🧀
#chambertin from Chanson 1952.
It is rare to drink a Chambertin, it is rare to drink 1952 #burgundywine .
How rare is it To drink a 1952 Chambertin? Ultra rare I guess !
And this one was in good condition.
1952 is rare but very nice.
I was expecting a lot from this bottle... And it delivered !
It was a gorgeous #wine : fruity, meaty, spicy with herbal and floral notes... Nice length. Blind I could have mistaken it for an old Bordeaux!
Too bad it is so rare... but what a great experience !
Cheers all 👍🍷
The Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s best known wine growing regions. There are more than 150 wine cellar doors🍷🍷Among them, we had a lovely encounter with @tyrrellswines on this trip.
It’s only a two hour drive from north of Sydney. Be careful for kangaroos and wombats on the way to the hunter valley at night.

Exciting & Historic Port Producers profile
Every Time you sip a glass of Port, you automatically drink a piece of history. Of course, the thing probably spent decades in a cellar. The port industry itself is based on a respect for the hard labor needed to produce such premium products. I’ve often heard port producers laugh over our Canadian idea of “Work” which apparently seems like a world apart from what takes place in Douro terraces. This is the part that is often forgotten, all the hard work from harvest to bottling, and the many years that separates both. Most Famous port houses have been doing it for generations and still manage to surprise us, consumers, by the quality standards and outstanding precious port they make for us. The Port trade is dominated by its shippers. All of which, British or Portuguese, have a strong sense of identity.
Cálem Port House
This is the first Port house along the Vila Nova de Gaia waterfront main street. Calem is one of the top Port cellars in town, and certainly one of the largest. As part of the Sogevinous group, they benefit from a decent marketing power. They recently started developing a more modern image, with new colorful labels, a port interactive museum, a lovely waterfront terrace, etc. Cálem was the first port house to export in Brazil, and this was the basis of their success. Their reputation has spread over the world, always linked with an idea of freshness in their wines.

Further to my previous post, my personal sequence of preference with our own wine pairings are ........ forgive me if I don’t think the same as you 😉: 1) Dujac Echezeaux 2006 is my first preference because the vosne romanee’s sweet and cherry flavor is always enjoyable and ready to drink at such age which I consider still relatively young.
2) La Mission Haut Brion 2003 - Pessac Leognan is always my favorite of Bordeaux left bank, because of its floral and elegant nose, well balance of sweetness and acidity, and more feminine than the many other Bordeaux left bank wines. We did blind taste, deciding it’s La Mission Haut Brion or Haut Brion, I quickly spotted it was La Mission coz the same vintage Haut Brion has more body and sweetness once opened.
3) Ausone 2003 - if it’s an older vintage, i would definitely rank Ausone as number 1 or 2 among this 3; i always like Ausone more than La Mission Haut Brion too. But, for this same relatively young vintage, Ausone can’t show its ‘real’ body, sweetness, plum, blackfruit taste yet. The good wine always needs more years to show its peak. Whereas, the La Mission is more ready to drink now. So, this time I like La Mission more. 😊
The story of Mascarello family goes back to the 1800s. Since then, they have been involved in viticulture, first by cultivating the vineyards of the noble Marchesa Giulia Colbert Faletti di Barolo. But in the late 1800s, they established their own winery and started producing their wines.
Acquiring Monprivato, a vineyard located in Castiglione Falletto, was crucial to their success. In this exceptional site, the vines enjoy a southwest exposure, and are planted at around 288 metres above sea-level in white and grey marl soils rich in limestone.
Today the winery is run by Mauro Mascarello, the fourth generation of the family. And like his grandfather, Mauro is a traditionalist who works with long fermentations and aging in large old casks.
But Mauro has also made an important contribution to the family’s estate.
In 1979, he started to vinify the grapes grown on each single vineyard separately in order to offer the unique expression of every single vineyard. He started from Monprivato, the 6.25 ha vineyard his visionary grandfather Maurizio acquired in 1904. #drinkstories

Eden Roc Restaurant of Hotel du Cap Eden Roc at Cap d’Antibes, Southern France.
Our own wine pairing, of course love my favorite Vosne Romanee region wines: - 2013 Dujac Les Beaux Monts
- 2010 Meo Camuzet Cros Parantoux
Both were really good! The typical Vosne Romanee sweetness and cherry nose made me drunk already!
The dinner: - ‘carrot’ appetizer is simple but tasty with the fresh veggi from the Southern France region. - ‘blue lobster’ dish is again ‘flawless’ with the fresh sweet soft blue lobster from the local region and right time of cooking
@scaiawine | 2018 | Rosé | Decided to go outside domestic lines for some value thirst quenchers and really came to love this bottle of rosé especially with the cool glass stopper! Notes of Watermelon, raspberry, melon, strawberry, dried herbs, white peach and rhubarb. Crisp and refreshing on the palate, slight salinity to it and some notes of slate. Finishes dry, this arguably is the best value we’ve stumbled upon, and a great alternative to Provence Rosé. 100% Rondinella, this is an absolute beauty with food, by itself and perfect for the heat. Enjoy now, cold, and get a case because it’s extremely budget friendly. | 92 points | $12 |
