  • 2011 Château Val Joanis Luberon Tradition

    One of the more incredible QPR wines I have run across in many a moon. Indistinguishable, for me anyway, from a solid St. Joseph. Nice depth of flavor, restrained acidity, a long and nuanced finish. Remarkable.

  • 2012 Walter Scott Pinot Noir Dumb Ox

    This is a beautiful wine - true to its Pommard roots, with silky texture and vivid red fruits. The nose is worth the price of admission - imagine picking a ripe strawberry in the mid-afternoon and mashing the warm fruit between your hands and then smelling it. That's the smell of this wine. Wonderful balance, fine-grained tannins and long finish. Captivating.

  • 2005 Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo

    This presents itself as a reasonably good Barbaresco in that the wine was pretty simple. Red fruit, a bit of menthol on the nose, decent acidity. It was distinguished only by a lengthy finish that started tannic and then dissolved in an entirely pleasant way. I had opened (but not decanted) six hours before dinner. Wine poured in the glass to track evolution showed not much - a bit of softening of tannins over time. None of the characteristics of a really good Barolo - no rose petals, no tar. Good thing I bought this cheap.
    Okay. So I was hasty. Three days later this turned into something with depth, soft tannins and a fair bit of burly grace. Still aggressively acidic but if I had more I would sit on it five years or so. Originally scored 87 but has improved to something more like 90. Not quite but close.
