Famatina Valley, Argentina
So Im going to admit my odd relationship with Torrontes, the wine i totally blew in a most public fashion during my CMS 1 Som Testing weekend. Dude next to me got it. I stumbled like a clueless dweeb trying to do the Urkel for the first time.
This one is a really nice example of a typical…[Read more]

Bright fresh teen fuits, a hint of spice and maybe eucalyptus and soft tobacco. Drink this one slowly….. heavier pours for your good friends and lighter pours for the rest

Old Napa name, from a low volume year. Lots going on with this wine. Warmed red fruit, mint, white pepper and butterscotch
Sunday dinner at Gramma’s. Delicious and memorable.
Wine X rating: XX1/2
eeeeeEEEEEEEeeeeee. I’m not ashamed to say I like the locations series because they push into some interesting areas, rethinking rules of blending. The E 5 is no excpetion, sourcing a range of grapes from across Spain, and spanning vintages such that this bottle gets a NV. Pull the cork and you’ll get deep purple, joe and baked red and bla…[Read more]
Really a fun bottle. Super approachable with nice dark fruit, white pepper, and an absence of raisin that lets this well crafted wine pair with a huge range of foods.
Nanny nanny boo boo, my glass is better that yours is

Dark, Jammy, Chewy and tart. Really nice drinker that if you brought to a dinner and left with the host, they’d be texting you thanks when they finally open it.

Interesting Bordeaux blanc. Staw color, nose of mango and tropical citrus maybe even a little green pineapple, something clean and floral like some white jasmine. Mild white grapefruit with some sweet tangelo.

I love SB I do.
This one is prefect for pasta in a robust chicken stock base. just delicious with enough backbone to handle the compound butter you’ll want to swirl into your sauce
Meyer lemon, grapefruit, dash of white peach without the sweetness, lemongrass. Balanced and aromatic

Fun tasting this venerable fav among the QPR crowd.
like running into a runway model in disguse at H&M . Bright, fun and down to earth, and delightfully not the bad kind of hot. Love to see you again…..

Lots of bell pepper and loamy earth.. medium weight, ruby and chewy leather
Wine X Says:
It’s a Haley club starting a food fight at a farmers market. Lots of leather and green things flying.
Rating X and an extra half X is you can let get some breeze in it’s hair.
Bordeaux Superior 2012
More complex than expected. Fresh red and blue fruits. Violets and roses. A hint of white pepper. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Bright and cheeery, with sweet red fruit and a noticeable and pleasant notes of fresh jasmine. Drinking delightfully now.
Wine X Says:
It’s Kenny G in a sweet ride. Totally cherry and a Jazz man too. Rating XX
Fun bottle and ready to enjoy. There is a lot of value in the central coast and this is certainlyvs typical example of that. Enough back bone to pair with savory dishes. Big and bright youthful red fruit. Likely can age some, but we all agreed that this bottle is awesome today so why wait

Delicious Rose without the typical rose over-sweetness. The Ballard Park will make you rethink everything you’ve ever hated about Rose wines.
Like front row seats to Bruno Mars. Bright, crisp, and a lot of fun until the end. Wine X Rating XX and as close to a third X as a Rose will ever get.
Magna Carmenere Limited Reserve 2015
Valle De Curico, Chile
Like a fruit food fight in the hall of the Met. Blueberries and raspberries flying around and lots of elegant minerals. Easy to love.
Yesterday I handed out Wine X to 100 students at our final meeting of the quarter and to another 20 students in one of my viticulture classes. It appears everyone was pleasantly surprised at how in tune Wine X is with our generation and age group. They love the diversity of relevant articles and topics that go beyond the scope of the wine…[Read more]
