WINE LIST EXPLORES CHARACTER - who, what, where, when, why...
Sauvignon Blanc, California - From a better growing region. Clean, crisp, pure, no MLF, little to no oak, varietal. Nose and mouth: grapefruit, melon, fig, citrus, floral, green pepper, dry, crisp, firm and clean.
Chardonnay, California - From a better producer. Better growing area, showing the potential of this grape variety. Baked and bruised apple and pear, orange flower, white peach, vanilla, toast, creamy, textured, buttery, rich, round finish - these are the classic characters we will explore.
Bourgogne Blanc, Burgundy - From a better producer. Smell of terroir: wet stone, wet earth, crisp apple, crisp pear, linear, refined, focused, high acidity, youth, lacks cream, lacks butter, remains tight and focused.
Pinot Noir, California - From a better appellation and producer. Shows pronounced character of better fruit with perfumed red cherry, fresh cut mushroom, brown spices like clove, better examples will have time in wood adding further density, concentration, and spice. Richer, rounder, fuller, velvety on palate, with elements of stem, seed, and skin (tannin, bitterness, and how that is expressed).
Merlot, California - From a better producer. Bold and dense, cherry, moca, clay, vanilla, softer than Cabernet, fewer pyrazines (bell pepper, vegetal), speaks to the place and soil its grown in. Allows for earlier access than Cabernet, softer and more forward in fruit and structure.
Cabernet, Napa Valley - From a solid producer. Napa when possible, to show the classic benchmarks - dusty cherry, cassis, eucalyptus, expensive spa like aromas (mint, eucalyptus, Vick's vapor rub). As price increases, so should density, depth and definition. Use of wood, use of blending grapes, flavor and concentration…explored.
Zinfandel, California - From a solid producer. Wide variety of styles and personalities. From ripe and jammy to dry and spicy. Tannins from bold and firm to soft and backed. Peppery and spicy to fruit, jam, confectionary sweet fruits. I believe better examples carry balance, and are not too ripe, where alcohol is not defining the mouth experience. We will discuss ripeness level, density, and style."
