Slight sweet and heavy. But works way better than it should. Rose hips. Good fruit like raspberries. Clean finish.

Gorgeous. Tight and juicy red fruits with a slightly sappy core. Bright acids and a lovely persistence. Very nice.

2004 Rene Rostaing Condrieu La Bonnette

Viognier more

1/8/2016 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

Nice. Minerality on the core and a lovely, lovely old perfume bottle nose. Light, would prefer a little more crispness and assertiveness, but still quite a neat bottle.

1999 Domaine Francois Lamarche La Grande Rue

La Grande Rue Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

1/8/2016 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

Meh. My assessment from 10 yrs ago about this aging has been shown to be wrong. Generically aged Pinot w/o GC weight or any special characteristics.

Chardonnay more

A bit thick and the botyrtis notes were not balanced with acidity or depth. Drinkable, but not for more than a smidge.

2002 Dönnhoff Schloßböckelheimer Kupfergrube Riesling Spätlese

Nahe more

1/8/2016 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

Very pretty wine. I can't really say that age added much, but the base lacey structure and citrus blossom notes were lovely. Balanced and complete. Quite enjoyable.

eta - I just saw my note of 5 yrs ago and this was a far far better wine. So I guess the aging did make a difference.

2012 Maison Ilan Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Les Chaffots

Pinot Noir more

1/8/2016 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

Gross. When the truly repellent reductive notes receded to a less than nauseating level, the stressed oak notes took over to an equally ghastly level. This wine was truly awful. This was genuinely one of the worst wines I have had in my life.

2014 Chrysalis Vineyards Albariño

Northern Virginia more

11/6/2015 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

Not good. Tasted like a cheap Spanish version that had been left on the shelf too long - anemic, acidic, slight varnish element. By the glass at the winery and maybe left open too long? Still, blerg.

Good stuff. Serious Norton sauvage fruit. Good structure, a bit loose. Acidic lift. Balanced.

Beautiful. Elegant structure with fougere and massage oils in the spaces. Plenty of dark fruits. Finished off with humus and a long dry down of soft textures and preserves and more fougere interplayed.

Nice dark color and surprisingly fresh on the nose. Slight notes of age in the middle. A bit of fleshy funk on the first finish. Very nice and complete.

2010 Domaine Karydas Xinomavro

Naoussa more

11/3/2015 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

As others note, shows off more fruit vibe on the nose than I expect from Karydas. It is actually quite appealing and closer the unsulfured Xino from Thymio. Structure is classic Xino tho with a masculine cut and austerity. Tannins a bit cutting and acid is a bit out of balance on finish. Still a beautiful wine and bloomed out sweet vegetal notes and a stony core with some air.

Lovely wine. Subtle nose, almost too mute but more than made up for with incredible texture and presence. Texture like old leather. Fruit driven and a zaftig element. Really wonderful stuff.

2008 Château La Conseillante

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend more

11/2/2015 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

Surprisingly open and very elegant. Lovely nose with some silk and blueberry-like fruit. Smooth texture, very fruit driven and plush. Nice underpinnings of La C darker beats and earth. No edges, almost preternaturally so for such a young La C. Really beautiful

2011 Château Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend more

11/2/2015 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

Starts off very squared and tannic boned. Drops some good beats after a bit. Dark fruits and a good funk. Even after a few hours, still a bit clunky and blocky. Enjoyable, probably more expression of '11 than a fault of the wine.

2010 Alpha Estate Xinomavro Hedgehog

Amyndaio more

10/30/2015 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

Three bottles over a month with consistency : Starts off strong on the xino and takes about an hour to express lovely dark fruits inside that frame. A bit of tar and funk with a fougere beat. A really deep and satisfying expresson of Xinomavro.

2014 Southbrook Winery Vidal Orange Wine

Niagara-on-the-Lake VQA more

10/24/2015 - AndrewSGHall wrote: NR

(At Treadwell in Niagara-on-the-Lake) Quite nice. About 85% orange wine generic schtick, but the 15% Vidal character did really well creating a nifty contrast that lifted the wine and made for a very good mead vibe with a counter point of bitters and tea. Really liked this and it was excellent with a mackerel dish.

Liked this a lot. Rich body with just a bare hint of CFs green and tight drama. Roast vegetal sweet. Good fruit and a soft finish with a definite take another sip call. Very good.
