Gerry Baker  It’s probably the wine talking...

Good things can happen when you break the rules & Marques de Griñon broke a lot of them. First in Spain to experiment with drip irrigation & international grape varieties and perhaps some stolen vine cuttings from some very estates. The wines are classically Spanish with lots of ripe fruit and well-balanced oak, but with lingering earthy complexity. Big wines without the big price tag.

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Gaisböhl Riesling is one of my favorite dry rieslings; subtle hints of honeysuckle, orange peel, lemon oil, wax candy, beautifully round texture & crisp finish. There’s no better study partner.

Uniquely aromatic, it eerily resembles a riper version of Barolo Chinato with its red berry, quinine-like nose.

One of the the best trios of Pinot Noir I’ve had in a long time. All expressive fruit & minerally with various intensities. Great examples of why German Pinot demands our respect.

Fabulous morning tasting of Pontet-Canet. 06-08-12-14-15, all unique in their own ways, but consistently smooth, elegant red plum, graphite finish.

Dried cranberry, strawberry, venison, thyme, pomegranate, sage, this list goes on. Incredibly smooth despite it being a little hit on the finish. #whatdreamsaremadeof #chateauneufdupape #grenache #rayas #2005 #wine #frenchwine #redwine #sommlife #winelife #winelover #detroit #drinkdetroit

2007 vintage, still so vibrant and fresh, very subtle hints of oak. Could last a few more years, but there’s no time like the present. .

I’ve always found that @theojaivineyard Bien Nacido Pinot Noir showcases a very unique blood orange quality that sets itself apart. .

Starting tomorrow we’ll be offering our guests a very unique opportunity. For the rest of the month we’ll be pouring a vertical of Chateau de Haute-Serre starting with the unbelievable 1982 vintage all the way to 2011. Best part is glasses are only $16! Don’t miss your chance to these wines from an incredible Malbec producer.

Wild Vitis Riparia started growing in my backyard. Can’t make any wine, but I can work on my grafting skills if I want to plant any Vinifera.
