  • 2018 Il Fortunato

    First from the half case of inexpensive wines I got from CSW to see me through SIP. I opened it for an Om-Nomi with college friends. I was looking for a prosecco to try my Aperol Spritz making skills and this description on their website looked promising:

    This is a rare item: Clean, crisp dry Prosecco, made from organic fruit, indigenous yeasts, very low SO2. This is a wine that will please everyone – your inner wine geek, and your (here please fill in the blank for your friend or relative who pays no attention to the details but will guzzle it down and ask for more). An amazing value! Jamie Wolff

    Poured out a glass and ... this is really good. Bright, lively, some depth and complexity. Was this really only $14? I build a Spritz, quickly decided it was much better on its own and drank it straight for the rest of the Zoom call. Buy again? Definitely.

  • 1995 Chateau Musar

    This was consumed before and during the Zoom call with Marc Hochar on Wine Berserkers with notes taken in real time:

    Just decanted my last bottle of 1995 Musar in preparation for tonight's call. Nose is soft with hints of cherry. Palate is light with good acidity. Some dark plummy fruit coming in on the finish.

    My previous bottle of the 1995 was more in the lifted, bretty all over the place wonderfulness that Musar can do. This is a more elegant, refined wine. If I were tasting it blind I'd probably guess Burgundy. Beautiful but not what I was expecting.

    Will follow over the course of the next few hours with dinner and then with the Zoom conference and report in here.

    With air and some broiled lamb chops a gorgeous earthy, loamy note is emerging.

    Over the course of the Zoom conference a spicy note emerged and just now about 2 hours after decanting the nose suddenly exploded. Wow! More of a strawberry note on the palate now. Much greater depth and persistence now. Having it with a bit of Comte during the call.

  • 2016 Domaine Rollin Père et Fils Pernand-Vergelesses

    Beautifully pure and harmonious with wonderful fruit tending towards cranberry. Hesitate to say it but this reminds me of Clos Roche Blanche, albeit at a higher price point.

    Did not hold up well on day 3.
