Similar to prior two tastings. In a sherry style, very dry and oxitative in a good way with funky city but fruit, wax and pith. Very interesting wine for sure.

Much more finesse, red fruits and high toned florals in this from the last bottle I had last year. Just enough brett adding to the interest. Will get more for sure.

Nice value at $8.99. I'm not completely sure what the varietal characteristics are for Picpoul but I've enjoy the last two I've had. Pretty simple but focused with a touch of sweet on the entry followed by sharp acids and some grassy notes. A nice summer sipper.

Man I love this wine. A touch of smoke and flint to start with, sea bed mineral, honey, fresh mulch a touch of fresh vanilla and wax. Medium weight on the palate with lots of mineral, citrus and herbs. Great weight and length and great pairing with simple chicken and fresh green beans.

Walla Walla Valley more

7/6/2015 - bajayngo wrote: NR

The fruit on this is very dense and sappy but in a good way. Had open for 4-5 days and the wine didn't budge. Tons of dark fruits with fresh loam and dry herbs. A bit of a mineral streak through it too. Really think these are built for the long haul but very approachable now.

Pretty straight forward Sancerre here. Lots of citrus, star fruit and quince, with grassy and herb notes with a good amount of mineral and bracing acidity. Good with veggie ramen soup.

Pacific Rim always over delivers with their Rieslings. Classic Riesling with a bit of petrol, fresh herbs, honey, apple and pears. Semi sweet on the palate with nice viscosity and length. And ridiculous value at $7.99!

Had this a few weeks ago but remember it like it was yesterday. Surprisingly open for business. Fresh mélange of fruit, mineral, pepper, iron, seaweed and lavender. Bright on the palate tasting fresh and lively with finesse. The finish echo's the wine. In top 3 for N Rhone wines.

Quickly becoming a huge fan of Produttori wines. Spices galore on the nose with fresh fennel, star anise, baking spices, red fruits, incense, high toned acidity, leather and rose. All followed to the palate with mid tannins and this is a drink now wine that I love.

Such a interestingly funky wine. There is barnyard note in this that is similar to a touch of brett but not bretty if that makes sense. Oxidized style with funk, brine, citirs a sherry quality and waxy in texture.

2010 Château de Saint-Cosme Gigondas Hominis Fides

Red Rhone Blend more

6/3/2015 - bajayngo wrote: NR

The clouds parted and the birds sang and I said hallelujah, haha. Man was this wine good. Everything that I could hope for in a southern Rhone and really elevated my thoughts on Gigondas although I have already had a love affair with the region. Fresh delicious fruit bouquet but not over ripe accented by all the hallmarks of S Rhone with fig cake, sage brush, melted licorice, reduced orange zest, hot stones, pepper, desert air, herbs de provance and worcestershire. Even though young it was so seamless on the palate with the bright fruit waking your taste buds followed by freshherb accents, nice acids and a bit of stem tannins. Hands down the single best Gigondas I have had to date and sets the standard going forward.

2010 Domaine Santa Duc Gigondas Grand Grenache 66

6/3/2015 - bajayngo wrote: NR

When 1st sniffed it was that high toned, electric pepper, blood orange incense nose that I love from southern Rhone wines. I could smell wines that this forever. On the palate was a different story though, young and blocky with coffee grounds, melted licorice, raspberry paste, chalk and gravel. Opened up after a few hours to reveal more figs, sage brush and red fruits. This on the very upper end with some of my favorite gigondas. Thanks for sharing Motz!

2005 Château Pavie

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/3/2015 - bajayngo wrote: NR

This is the 3rd occasion I've been able to try Pavie and it's always a treat. It was a bit of a mind bender because it was served to us single blind as a gigondas. As you would expect I was confused by the oak treatment, massive tannins and couldn't find the Grenache varietal characteristics. But after the mistake was revealed it made much more sense and we all had a good laugh.

On the nose this was so reduced and almost port-like with layers of concentration and beautiful seasoned oak notes with a WALL of tannins. I luckily held on to my glass of it over 2-3hrs and was able to watch it evolved. Showing more graphite, cherries, dust and leather with time. It took quite some time for the secondary and varietal notes to pop but when they did there was a mineral framework and a mélange of fruits but at this stage it's still very modern in style but ultra complex and a wine of true quality and one that I think will improve with age once the secondary notes come to the forefront. Thank you so much for sharing Motz, it was truly appreciated.

A beautiful wine from the word go on this wine. Was served double blind and guessed walla walla syrah so felt good about that. Fresh vibrant fruit up front followed by autumn leaves and fresh loam, smoke and pepper. Great structure and finesse. Good example of great straight forward WA syrah.
