No new vintage preorders?

Also, as a longtime huge fan of Stereophonic (my family knows it’s been a really good or a really bad day if one hits the table), I need to give a shoutout to the Carignane, “The Faster Blade.” My low key favorite of the last vintage and one of my all time Stereophonic faves, though the Cabs were wonderful as well. Also, Heart Container is what I give people I like enough to introduce to Stereophonic wines; $20/bottle is stupid for a wine of that quality.

Hi Eric,

I have a Chardonnay from Arroyo Grande that is almost ready but as it’s still TBD I will wait to offer that one! I’ll send out a pre-arrival offer to the mailing list when the time comes!

Order placed. Love the selection of champagnes, Jason! Nice touch. No one can complain there’s no old world wines on BD anymore :wink:

Looking forward to it!

And that’s without even considering the ridiculous selection in our Monopole Cru offer… :exploding_head:

Thanks for calling out The Faster Blade. I really think it might be the best domestic Carignane I’ve ever had, and I’m pretty self-aware when it comes to comparing our wines. It just keeps developing day after day after day…it’s so packed with dense material compared to the average Carignane, and it’s still loaded with tannin, acid and spice. I think it’ll be good for a very, very long time.

NOAHCAP WROTE:

Tuesday, January 9, 2024 - Medium gold with just a slight amount of haze in the glass. Lovely fragrant nose- very high toned and full of minerals, chalkiness, some ocean spray, and fresh lemon oil. I expected a high-acid zing-monster in the mouth, and while high acid for sure, it is a bit fuller, rounder, softer than I expected. That’s a good thing! Tart green apple, fresh lemon, a touch of grapefruit pith with a core of stoniness running through the whole experience. Lovely finish with some refreshing bitterness. Very good stuff. Don’t believe the drink by 2023 date on CellarTracker. Especially under screw cap, this wine has miles to go. Well done!

6/22/2023 - GEAUX TIGERS LIKES THIS WINE:92 Points

This wine just fits my palate, the mouthfeel feel of a light crisp Chablis, viscous like a Semillon, with lemon custard, butterscotch, caramel, orange peel, and oyster shell on the nose as it warmed. A complete steal on price.

10/10/2023 - DARIUSKOENIG LIKES THIS WINE:91 Points

This is my third bottle of the Dream of Spring. Classic Paso, big mouthfeel and fruit but not over the top. Really like the inversion of a Syrah-dominated blend instead of Grenache. Deep color in the glass, smokiness and dark fruits on the nose and palate. Mourvedre and Petite Syrah complete the blend giving it more acidity, freshness and complementary tannins. A real winner, great for sipping on the porch.

1/23/2024 - JJYOYO LIKES THIS WINE:92 Points

Still very primary, has a sweet edge to it but that’s a matter of youth rather than too much extraction. I found the bouquet rather strong on florals, like a wave of violets. Oak is kept in reasonable proportions. Lots of plum / cherry on the palate. I really have no idea how this will evolve.
I liked this more and more as we drank it. At this stage of its life it struck me as a perfect gateway drug for people who like mid-priced blueberry milkshake Napa cabs — because that’s all they’ve ever had — and can take them somewhere a lot better. This wine had the non-threatening taste profile of wines that are inferior to it; however unlike, say, The Prisoner this also has interesting balance and just a little tension to it. And although it won’t scare the horses that doesn’t mean it’s boring - not at all. A crowd-pleasing wine in the best sense and maybe my favorite Stereophonic wine so far.
Score: 92. Relative to expectations: ++

1/26/2023 - MARKLA WROTE:

50% whole cluster. Nose is reserved on opening. In 15 minutes time, clove, cinnamon, black cherry, fig, black peppercorn, black rock, capsicum, and eucalyptus. An hour later it has really blossomed, adding creme de violette, juniper, and sandalwood soap.

On the palate, cream soda, juicy cherry, clove, rosemary, and cinnamon candy. Lighter on opening, it has put on textural weight. Plenty of lift and youthful grip on the finish with hints of cinnamon candy, black tea and, tobacco. Though, like initially with the nose, the wine is still holding back some of what it will eventually offer. Could use some time to let stems assimilate, but the raw material is very promising. An elegant Ballard Canyon and an excellent counterpoint to the Sebastiano. Try again Fall 2023+ (92-95pts).

11/23/2023 - MARKLA WROTE:

Kirsch, licorice, lavender, citrus peel, menthol, tar, violet, and crushed rock. Black-fruited and spicy with med-plus acidity. Spicy, tobacco finish with firm, ripe tannins. Additional air adds an impression of sweetness on the back end. Versatile food wine that only needs some time on its side (91+). Should drink comfortably for at least 10-15 years after.

Update: Much more enjoyable on the third day with no signs of decline.

10/11/2023 - ALPHA_ORI LIKES THIS WINE:91 Points

Nosewise: dark cherries at peak ripeness, plus some dried cherry notes. As it opens, there’s big spice box like a high end California Pinot, and a bit of liqueur as well. Maybe there’s some pink peppercorns in there, too? Underneath it all, a touch of vegetal notes – dry leaf and some tarragon.

Flavorwise, the palate echoes the cherry, leaf, and liqueur elements of the nose. It’s loose but not lacking in concentration; there’s a roundness to the it, but there’s just enough acid to hold it in shape. Let’s call it “New World balance”. The mouthfeel has a creaminess that’s kind of like licking the rind of a ripe wheel of brie. It retains a fine tannin, but said tannin is only very present at the end of the midpalate.

Temperature is important to this wine. I think it’s best between 60 and 65 degrees; normal cellar temp is a bit too cold for it to express its best self. In that range, you get a merlot-soft palate balanced by a bit of sour cherry tartness.

Sangiovese is one of the grapes that I feel exhibits the most extreme differences between wines made in their original terroir vs. their New World analogues. This is a wholly different beast from, say, a Chianti Classico, but it is nonetheless quite delicious and something I’m happy to have several more bottles of in my cellar.

1/3/2024 - RIESLINGFAN WROTE:

Bright and invigorating are not words I usually associate with Cabernet Sauvignon, but they apply here. I might have thought there was a notable dash of Zinfandel in there to provide acidic zip, but the flavors were full Cabernet. The freshness made it easier to drink in quantity than most California Cabs, but I do need to get up for work tomorrow! Fun to drink now, and I might move to drink up while it’s in this enticing phase.

In for an order. Love the champagne selections!

Corn Don’t Grow Malbec and Untrue Cab,

thanks

Thanks Derek! I’ve noticed several folks combining Stereophonic and Champagne orders together to get the same flat shipping rate which is very smart!

If you like Riesling and saving lots of money, I suggest Monopole Cru folks head over there right now!

Taking you up on the crazy Dream of Spring offer! Can’t wait to try it.

Can you post the ABV’s?
