2018 Julien Sunier Morgon. First time that I've seen this producer available at retail in my country, so was eager to try it. Has some of the richness of the '18 vintage about it, yet lovely purity and freshness too with a gently crunchy undercurrent. Very moreish and had to stop myself from drinking the whole bottle.

Ben Silver Tre Figli 2009 Cabernet, Sangiovese, Cab Franc.
Really nice juicy fruit and some herbs, super smooth.
I think Ben is really under appreciated in SBC.

2016 Elio Sandri Langhe Nebbiolo
Great floral perfume of roses, classic cherries and tannins of Nebbiolo on the palate. Still very approachable though, a more elegant and feminine expression. Beats the hell out of many pedestrian Barolos. Great QPR.

If you bought it direct from Pahlmeyer you should let them know as they might replace it.
I have had isolated California chards that were oxidized. One bad bottle doesn’t mean they are all bad.

Started with a 2017 Kelly Fleming rose, Then a 2016 Corra (after a long decant) with a dry-aged ribeye. Corra was really nice, but will let my other bottles area while.

From CT: 2006 Paul Bara Comtesse Marie de France (Bouzy) - pours a light golden color, weighty and expansive on the palate. Red apple fruit and some peach. Nicely rounded wine, very classy. Balanced acidity and not so tight as to require further resolution for enjoyment, although not many tertiary things going on as yet. Drink or hold.

This was Egly’s MV grand cru brut, which is a delicious and useful example of their house style, more focused, and even redder fruit than the Paul Bara. I thought the Paul Bara more expansive, enjoyable and ready to drink, but for fans of E-O, this most recent disgorgement is clean and top notch

2000 Clinet
Decanted for 3 hours and then drank over 2 hours or so. This was dark red without much bricking. The nose was very floral, with red fruits. The wine was a little disjointed though, and the tannins were initially very prominent, although they seemed to soften over the night. There was a lot of acid which overwhelmed everything else.

This needs a few more years for everything to come together , but it was still an enjoyable wine.

I popped a 1989 Lynch Bages on Friday night. It was just corked enough to neutralize all the fruit, but you could tell there was a deep, delicious velvety wine underneath [cry.gif]

Happily, the 2015 Pepiere Clisson I purchased off the list did way way outperform my expectations

2002 Domaine Truchot-Martin Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Aux Combottes Vieilles Vignes

This was a pleasant drink. It was very full and round, but didn't have the lift or lightness, nor much acidity, that I like in Burgundies. It actually seemed a bit muted. I think it is due to the vintage, which I have never liked tremendously. Or maybe it needed more time to open up.

I see this is going for $800 at an auction at Zachys. While I liked it and it was nice to spend an evening with Jacky Truchot (thank you), I can't say it was worth $800 for me. Maybe for someone else.

The 2010 ardanza is awesome. I have like 5 cases sitting in the offsite, biding their time.

Opened a small producer pinot tonight -2017 Small Vines Sonoma Coast. Dang is this some good stuff.

Few days late.

2015 Domaine de Baronarques - orderd on LastBottle. This was a great wine for the price. Think I paid under $30. It took a while for the aromas to open up; when it did it was a tremendous amount of dark fruit. Had nice structure, and paired really well with a rib eye dinner. A dark brooding wine that takes time to drink. But incredibly enjoyable.

2017 LLenca Plana Monstant - great for immediate drinking. Did not decant or give it time. Just jumped right in. For $18 a bottle I would buy over and over. Had a mineral saline finish, roasted meats and umami aroma. Very interesting Spanish red. Think that this goes well with or without food. At least for my tastes.

Last night:

- Finished off 2017 Turley Zinfandel Ueberroth
- Coravin'd a glass of 2017 Sine Qua Non Grenache Gorgeous Victim

One of these was overly jammy, low on acid, and too alcoholic. The other was a Turley.

To be fair, when I had the Turley back to back with some 2017 Goodfellow Whistling Ridge Pinot the night before the Turley came across as hot and jammy and not quite flabby, but not at the acid level I'd prefer. In comparison to the SQN though it's super balanced. My first SQN and not sure I want more. I'll probably pop a syrah also, just because, but I'm 95% sure this isn't for me, especially given the price point.

Last night, we opened the 2018 Coudert Fleurie Clos de la Roilette. This particular bottle was much less expressive - both aromatically and on the palate - than a bottle we opened on Thanksgiving (which was fantastic, loaded with juicy fruit and perfume). Maybe these are going into a closed phase?

Over the last two nights I enjoyed the 2015 Rivers Marie Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast.

2015 Rivers-Marie Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast
Pop and pour. Tasted over two days, with the wine being sealed with a VacuVin and refrigerated overnight.
Crimson-ruby color.
Nose offers red berries, some cloves and a pine forest floor note.
Beautiful red berries with that brown spice and a floral note. Has a hint of tangerine peel along with red currant and pomegranate. There is an earthy side that adds some depth. Sufficient acidity to keep this lively and give lift to the wine.
Delicious.

This is a great value in California pinot noir.

After reading some of that thread, I had a similar thought to check in on some of my few remaining Kosta Browne pinots.
I opened a 2014 KB Russian River and was not impressed. Showed a touch of cough syrup to it.
That might have been isolated to the KB RRV as a few months ago I much enjoyed a 2014 KB Sonoma Coast.

Same thinking here. Opened a 2014 KB RRV Koplen, which showed well. Luscious and velvety CA Pinot with nice complexity. Plenty of life ahead.

Opened Friday night, 2017 Swanson Merlot. Not bad when cellar temp, but cloying vanilla sweetness and alcohol as it warmed up. Supple texture and starts with blue / black fruit, but best drank cold imo. My wife actually thought I was drinking rum...

$35 on their site, paid $19 from a November deal, wouldn’t buy again for less.

2015 Mending wall Tournahu Vineyard - A little heavy on the oak as I remembered when tasting it but a solid wine, especially on day 2.
2012 Aston Estate - Drinking really well now, but an extra plumminess I don't remember from previous bottles was strange.

2010 vina ardanza rioja riserva - delicious. And at the start of an easy 10-15+ year run of excellence, fantastic QPR.

2017 Domaine Thierry Mothe Chablis - tasty and also good QPR, good acidity and tart for a buttery salmon.

Opened a 2001 L'Aventure Optimus.

Acquired from a collection sale through a store in Manhattan. Wife and I loved L'Aventure when we visited in Paso Robles and bought some wine there. This cork was immaculate, opened 20 min before we had dinner.
Notes of dried cherries, dark stone fruit but almost like if it was muddled together for a mocktail. The alcohol was apparent but it was very subdued. I loved it and wish I could get another one. Should have bought the other that was available.

Opened a Say When 'When' Pinot Noir acquired from BersekerDay. I've got very little California Pinot experience outside of casual settings or random bottles purchased before I really started pursuing wine.

A very fresh, fruit forward wine that I enjoyed.

Had 2015 Glunz Famioly Syrah from Paso Robles.

Bought this wine with my gf at the time, enjoyed with her last night (wife now). Took us back to that day, driving around in my old Volvo C70 convertible. Its dry out in Paso Robles, I remember the dusty crunch of rocks and pebbles when you step out of the car.

I tend to describe an aroma of roast meat and savory. I'm not sure what the right way to describe it. Anyone can help me out? Has a really great finish with soft tannins and a lot of structure. May have drank too soon. But it was delicious and very enjoyable.

2014 Peter Michael Chardonnay La Carriere Very oaky, a bit too much for me. Although after sitting out Improved immensely
2009 Jonata El Desafio. What a big wine. It was a sipper, hard to drink with food. I guess I opened this way too young!

1995 Col D'Orcia Poggio al Vento BdM, this was absolutely rocking. 45 minutes in the glass and drank over about a 2-3 hour period. I need more BdM in the cellar!

Opened 2011 Greer. Ready for business (better with some air) and can hold for at least several years.
