2013 Kosta Browne RRV. Paired nicely with risotto and prosciutto-wrapped chicken breast.

07 Fuligni is a delight, on the feminine, finessed side of the spectrum after having a little too much oak for my liking a couple of years prior ...

2015 Clos Fourtet. We had this with dinner (brought over by a friend). Not decanted.

Out of the gate, this had a great nose with plum and cherry notes. On the palate though, this needed to breathe, as it was quite fruit-forward, almost sweet and very big.

Over the course of dinner (about 2 hrs or so) this wine became more subdued and was much better. Very smooth with well integrated tannins despite the young age.


A good St. Em, perhaps more in the modern style.

2013 Ferrando Carema White Label
2013 Cappellano Barbera d'Alba Gabutti
1999 Fratelli Monchiero Barolo Montanello Riserva
2006 Fratelli Monchiero Barolo Riserva Rocche di Castiglione Falletto
2001 Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

Favorite of the bunch was the Ferrando. Elegant, structured... but lacking a little extra oompf of some sort. Curious to try the Black Label, and wondering if 2015 as a hotter vintage will add some oompf? The Barbera did not swing me onto Barbera. Overall the wine had a lot of structure, stuffing and is quite juicy - but overall too much cranberry for me. A bit wild and needs some time to settle down. Will look forward to trying out another bottle in 5 years or so. Preferred the 1999 Monchiero Riserva to the 2006. The 1999 had more fruit, while the 2006 felt a bit wooded up. 2001 Allegrini was a disappointment. Maybe a bad bottle, but thin and hot.

2015 Baumard Savennieres

2001 Pousse d'Or Santenay 1er Cru Gravieres

the Pousse was a little more advanced than I would hope this bottle would be, but it was still really enjoyable. I think that comes more from where it was likely stored than the wine itself (I just bought it about a month ago). It lacked a little bit of the fruit and was pretty far into the tertiary end, but still densely textured and some nice acidity. When we hit the right course (smoked turkey) it was a really good pairing wine.

1981 Leoville Poyferre, which was good enough to make me lament the direction the house has taken more recently. Not an "impressive" wine, but silky, light on its feet, and very satisfying with roast chicken

Thanks for this note. This is one I haven’t tried (or had a damaged bottle of).

I am still very much lamenting the spoofing of Poyf. Old Poyferre, except in the ripest years, is always about texture, relatively red fruited clarity, elegance. It can get lost in a crowd, even among very experienced Bordeaux drinkers IME, unless one enjoys this type of Bordeaux and pays attention. I love it.

Yes Poyferre used to be special. For me the 1982 is the best of the Leovilles, far better than the overhyped Las Cases.

We had a 1975 La Lagune last night. While it did not have the complexity a truly great wine would have, it was nonetheless a deeply satisfying drink. 43 years on, from a mezza mezza vintage, the wine was vigorous, vibrant and enveloping on the palate. It may well have been better 5 years ago, but it was plenty good last night. Happy to have one more

1999 Shafer Relentless Syrah. Still as purple as the day it was bottled. Took 3+ hours of decanting to bring it together

Had the Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc. Hated it. Very linear and simple taste. After taste was flat and too acidic for me.

2015 Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc - the opposite of Mr. Lee’s post about duckhorn. Very nice as usual.

2016 Seghesio Zin - needs time but after aeration it was very nice although tannic. Big zin with good fruit and maybe even some chocolate notes. Easy drinker and looking forward to drinking this one over the next 5 years.

Opened a few things while loading the new cellar:

2003 Sociando Mallet -- dense, brooding, coarse tannins -- but, very good
2005 Beausejour Duffau -- a volatile mess of a wine
2007 Beresan Cabernet Walla Walla -- how did this end up in my cellar? Not my cuppa tea.

2016 Red Stitch Soberanes Vineyard Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands: This is one of the former SF Giant Shortstop Rich Aurilia, LA Dodger skipper Dave Roberts and John Miceks' wines. Rolando Herrera, (Mi Sueno Winery), is the winemaker. Beautiful SLH red and black fruit flavors, ample acidity and expansive finish. Trying to figure out how to get Rich Aurilia to cook a dinner to go with his wines. He is a gourmet chef and has Chards and Cabs to top off dinner.

I opened an Aeris by Rhys this weekend, and it was corked. I didn't have another ready for serving, so I pulled a 2013 Rhys Alpine Chardonnay from my wine fridge. I really wanted to age that one longer, but my friend wasn't interested in the Alsatian Riesling I was about to open to replace the Aeris. It's a great wine, but not my first choice to accompany assorted cheese and salami.
With dinner of braised beef, I opened a 2005 Dalla Valle Cab and he brought a 2016 Di Co. The Dalla Valle is big and brash with noticeable but softening tannins. I don't see much upside in holding. Right now, the chalky tannins are ahead of the fruit in the Di Co. If I had any, I would be holding.

We opened a half of 2010 Larrivet Haut Brion and I was very surprised at how welcoming it was. Really a lovely wine with a lot of fuel for aging. I hope I am able to keep my mitts off them because I think they'll be much better in 5-7 years. I'll be on the lookout for more, but halves are really hard to source after the vintage. Wish I had bought a case.

With last night’s Alba white truffle menu. Slow-oxed for 8 hours (per the producer’s website), then decanted for sediment & aeration (the latter for an hour). Excellent stuff.

I spent a glorious evening with a 1981 Ducru Beaucaillou. It was just a one-night stand, but it was great fun while it lasted. Aging gracefully and full of life.

I thought this was one of the better 2010 Champagnes I’ve tried so far. Although the Vilmart Coeur de Cuvee last week was at another level still.

Opened a 2004 Sea Smoke Botella and 2001 Chimney Rock Cab last night...made a commitment to work through older wines and really enjoying the process.

The Botella was ageless...integrated tannins, but still tasted young and deep red in color...another few years to go easily if you have any left. The Chimney Rock was dark red, cherry pie and blue fruit, though the finish faded quickly...still enjoyable for a 17 year old.

Maxime Graillot Equis Cornas 2010: this is from the son of Alain Graillot of Crozes-Hermitage fame. Had this with beef and mushroom Stroganoff.

This was opened without decanting. It had a typical rustic scent of a cornas, but this dissipated after a few hours in glass and eventually gave off a scent of dark fruit, herbs, land even some floral notes. In mouth it had some salinity and good acidity, and was more herbal with some grip to the tannins. Definitely needs food, but paired well with our meal.

Will consider another bottle in a few years.

Opened a 2017 Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly. So much wild cherry and acid. Extremely lively. Drank over 3 days as more and more brambly notes came through and the slight banana notes died away. Wonderful bottle and will need a few years.

2002 Bollinger La Grande Annee. Seemed slightly improved from bottled opened earlier this year, but going to wait a few more years before opening the next.

Domaine Huet Le Mont Vouvray 2017 Moelleux.
Just a beautiful wine to unwind with. Very supple, with citrus and honey notes. Will be looking for more bottles soon.

My last bottle of 1987 Pine Ridge Diamond Mountain. It was time to go anyway.

'06 Faiveley Vosne Romanée - pretty funky nose at first which I'm sure will blow off - massive acidic grip, pretty well fruited overall. I think tomorrow this will shine

Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)
