'a Rina Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese - Nerello Cappuccio 2017

My first Etna Rosso. Intensely stony tannins and a noticeably mineral-driven weight. Boozy wild strawberry and dark cherry fruit open up and lighten with some air. Hard edges, but was a treat with the ol’ Long Island sausages and peppers. — a month ago

La Maison Bleue Hermitage Syrah 2015

It’s a walk in the woods with a bowl of cherries. The nose presents with woods and earth. The palate brings forward subtle fruit notes. This is a complex beauty that paired perfectly with my rustic herb grilled whole chicken. While I’m generally not a huge fan of Syrah, this wine is wonderful. — a month ago

Have to work today, but Plumpy attenuates the pain. A clean, mineral-driven chard, which will sail on in the cellar for some time. Prior notes apply. — a month ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Catching up on some camping weekend drinking posts. Lovely but young Barolo from a classic producer. A bit on the lighter bodied side for my taste but so drinkable - cherry and tobacco on the palate that is just perfect with grilled meats. Will let some of my bottles settle down longer but this is a nice wine to drink now. — a month ago

Première Cuvée Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Alder Yarrow
9.3

Starting to become the house bubbly. Perfectly balance between berry/cherry and watermelon fruit and the crisper more saline notes that make it difficult to stop sipping. — a month ago

Pali Wine Co.

Huntington Pinot Noir 2016

This is comfort food Pinot. I paired tonight’s bottle with homemade chicken and biscuits veggie pie. Heaven! Perfect cool climate cherry forward wine with foresty flooriness. Also married well with the truffle Brie appetizer. Fall season delight! — a month ago

I’ve considered this to be a great PN for the money.

Marcel Lapierre

Morgon Gamay 2018

It’s always surprisingly multifaceted. This time there’s a menthol quality broadening the usually joyous bojo raspberry/cranberry/tomato. And so persistent. — a month ago

@Jae Cho Wonderful! Nothing irresponsible about teaching kids to appreciate fine wine in moderation at a young age, in fact I think a good argument can be made that it’s the height of responsible parenting compared to the alternate ways most kids learn to relate to alcohol. So, I say have your cake and eat it too!

@Josh Morgenthau Yes! Hard to binge on keystone light in a dank frat house when you know the good stuff.

Charles Heidsieck

Rosé Réserve Brut Champagne Blend

David T
9.2

We’ve had their N/V Blanc but, haven’t had their Rose in awhile. Quite good.

Mousse is very refined. Great mouthfeel. Blood orange, tangerine, rhubarb notes, poached strawberries, black cherries, watermelon near the rind, white spice, oyster shell, grainy chalk, grey volcanics, saline, dry yeast, baguette crust, mint with pink roses dominate with shades of red roses. The acidity is lively. The finish is, pleasantly rich, elegant, well balanced & polished persistent for minutes falling into minerals & spice.

Their rosé, in the right base year, can be spectacular!
