  • 2011 Charles Smith Riesling Kung Fu Girl - USA, Washington
    Green Bartlett pear, apple, tart acidity on the end. Finish is a bit short and abrupt, but a good bottle of wine, and certainly great for $12. I can see this being a bit more fun to drink in the summer with a good seafood dish. (86 pts.)
  • 2009 Failla Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley
    Decanted for 8+ hours.

    Kirsch, root beer, cream, some mild funk, hint of greens, earth tones. Smooth, but could use a bit more acidity to me. A really good bottle of wine, and nice example of Pinot. (93 pts.)
  • 2009 Château Boswell Chardonnay Dutton Ranch Sebastopol Vineyard - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley
    Started around 45F, and followed over 6 hours.

    Early on I caught pineapple, vanilla, truffle, and as this warmed up it's shown other flavors. One of the guests commented "Funkenbutter" :) A buttery nuttiness to it as it warms, almond, hazelnut? Does have an earthy funk to it...very nice.

    Really enjoyed this...a very nice bottle that has plenty of life left, but drinking well now. (92 pts.)
  • 2007 Domaine Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes - France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape
    Decanted for 8+ hours.

    Very Châteauneufy to me...Cherry, plums, rosemary, garrigue, pepper, tobacco, cassis, and more...a bit of bitter aftertaste on it to me though...almost reminds me of tree bark or something.

    Getting toward mature I think, but it definitely improves with a long decant. Keep it in the cellar a bit longer or throw it in a decanter for a while before drinking. (92 pts.)
