  • 2010 Ambassador Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Estate

    PnP. Clean nose of strong cedar and earth. Lots of sediment. Medium bodied palate showing medium plus cedar, medium earth, medium plus acidity, and only medium minus dark red fruit. Drinkable, but the wine progressively lost fruit with air. Held too long - shame on me. No rating.

  • 2012 Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard

    PnP, but definitely benefits from about 20 minutes of slo-ox. No sediment noticed. Clean nose of dark red fruits and earth. The medium to plus bodied palate shows lots of dark red fruits, a good dose of earthiness, and a touch of spice. The acidity is balanced, the tannins are resolved, and the finish is appealing. Best to drink in the next year or so, but should hold for at least a couple.
    Much better showing than the fading 2012 Hobbs Russian River Valley Pinot consumed earlier this month. This seems to support my thoughts that the non-vineyard designated pinots are best enjoyed between 3 and 6-7 years after vintage, while you're giving the vineyard designates time to come into their own for best drinking between 5 and 8+ years after vintage.

  • 2018 Goose Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Kosher

    PnP, chilled, but may benefit from a few minutes of air before drinking. A clean nose of gooseberry, cut grass and some minerality. The medium bodied palate shows a mix of gooseberry, grapefruit, and touches of ripe passion fruit, lemon and minerality. The acidity is robust, and the finish is medium minus. This wine should hold for at least a couple of years. QPR is OK when on sale at $16.

    1/2/2017 3:50:00 PM - Does anyone know how to tell the disgorgement/bottling date of Champagne Laurent Perrier Cuvee Rose? There is a code (printed on the bottle) below the back label that begins L23, followed by letters & numbers. Is this some sort of disgorgement/bottling date code?? Any help is appreciated, thanks.
