MOST RECENT

About last night... @wildbrute Unfiltered Cabernet Franc 2013 aged like a DREAM, holler Justin! I took a bottle across country from our NY collection to share with CA friends...and it was gorgeous—dark fruit, balanced tannins, mellowed acidity, and a beautiful earthiness that felt like fall in the Finger Lakes 🍷❤️ super small production, and I’m so lucky to have tasted with their crew years ago!! Paired with Greek style marinated and grilled leg of lamb, garlic potatoes, and a huge Greek salad with my homemade tatziki sauce (and yes, I ate some potato even though it’s not Keto 😂 fight me) 🍷🤤🍷

Damn! This is good!
Made @rockwayvineyards by @andrewinereview and @vadimwineguy, this 2017 Chardonnay has all the classic flavours of a fine French white Burgundy. Restrained & elegant. Deeply flavoured. Balanced with potential for aging in a cool cellar for up to a decade.

This wine requires food. This 2013 is highly structured. Vines on the Merrycrest is worth a visit if you're in Paso Robles.

Clos Margalaine: A Garagistes' Wine - a bold and fruity winter wine!⠀

Wikipedia explains: The garagistes refers to a group of winemakers in the Bordeaux region, producing "Vins de garage", "Garage wine". A group emerged in the mid-1990s in reaction to the traditional style of red Bordeaux wine, which is highly tannic and requires long ageing in the bottle to become drinkable. The garagistes developed a style more consistent with perceived international wine tastes.⠀

For red wines this means "bigger, bolder, fruitier wines, often with sometimes a higher alcohol content." The new style for white wines is a more pronounced oak taste with some residual sugar. This new style of wine is controversial, and purists claim that the wines will not age well and they don't reflect well the terroir of the region, nor the typicity of the grape varieties used. Characterised as "winemaker's wine whose attributes reflect a disregard for the traditional handling of its particular terroir", the term is sometimes used somewhat as a backhanded compliment; in light of this, vins de garage wines come from previously unknown estates without proven track record or pedigree. Alternately, such wine is referred to as "super-cuvée" or "microchâteau". The wines produced by these estates often receive very high wine ratings from Robert Parker (a US wine critic), and are usually sold at prices driven high by rarity, hyperbole, and fashion.⠀

Clos Margalain is the second wine of Chateau Marojallia. Marojallia is a Medoc “garagiste” wine that in its short history has developed a cult following. Though it is located in the Margaux appellation, the 9-acre estate it is not part of the historic 1855 classification, given that Marojallia was established only in 1999. About 12,000 bottles of Clos Margalaine are made annually.⠀

These are all Catawba grapes. This next batch we are starting tonight will wine of the “Colonists”. Catawba grapes are North American native, were used in most or all colonial wines. The concord variety didn’t exist then. I am going to stop the fermentation process a sooner than the other batch as I am looking for a “sweeter” wine. #catawbagrape #grapes #catawbawine #colonial #colonialstyle #colonialwine #homemade #detroit #indianvillagedetroit #garagiste #garagistewine
