SQN!!! It required years of patience on the waiting list, but I’m thrilled I finally got some Sine Qua Non wines delivered to me! It’s gonna be tough not to open these up soon alongside a @flannerybeef steak! . . #sinequanon #sinequanonwine #wine #redwine #winelover #winegeek #cultwine #winestagram #instawine #syrah #grenache #santaritahills #manfredkrankl #humblebrag
Another white juxtaposition, this time Okanagan and Napa. Canada coming bright and fresh and hot, Napa presenting sultry elegance and concentration. I wouldn't kick either outa bed. You want notes? Go to the blog: soifknows.com I ain't copy&pastin that stuff here tonight, sorry. #whitewineemoji @gratusvineyards @deserthillsestatewinery #napavalley #okanagan #canadianwine #viognier #whitewine
The fourteenth stop in our tour of Prince Edward County was Sugarbush Vineyards. A small winery named for the maple trees at the back of their property. With a focus on vinifera varietals, unusual for wines at this price point, good value wines are being made here at seemingly half the price of their more esteemed neighbours. . . . . #wine #vin #vino #vinho #vineyard #winery #winetour #winetime #wineoclock #winenot #winestagram #winecountry #winetasting #winelover #winegeek #instawine #princeedwardcounty #pec #VQA #sugarbushvineyards #GoGamayGo #cabfranc #pinotnoir #chardonnay #gewurztraminer #riesling

Liten Buffel ‘Faucheaux’ 🍇100% Cabernet Franc Seneca Lake New York #🇺🇸 2016 | 12.3% | $25 . . . Jay: Smells like crisp morning air and I’m walking through the pines after it rained. Pine branches and bark strewn across the forest floor crunching beneath my feet. Damp moss and mushrooms growing at the base of spruce trunks and wild lingonberry bushes with bright red and tart berries ready for picking. Mo: Faucheaux (fo sho) is my favorite wine from Liten Buffel! We have another bottle of it that's going to join us for Thanksgiving dinner. 🍷🦃🍽🥧 . . . #litenbuffel #senecalake #nattywine #somm #winegeek #716 #niagarawinetrail #newyorkwine #cabernetfranc #localwine #sippin #winowife #sommelier #naturalwine #fosho #getit

2016 Cordornui Vina Zaco Tempranillo: from #rioja this #tempranillo tastes wonderful. Very dark and intensely purple with an almost gluelike consistency, this #wine has a red liquorice and slightly smoky nose with hints of dill pickle and prunes. There is an elegant balance on this wine with fruit and acid working together though it is thinner than one might expect. Still it has a silky mouth feel and the cherries, cocoa, anise and vanilla bean but the tannins are chewy on the back end. Great with or without food. . . . #vino #vin #vinho #wein #winenerd #winegeek #wineblogger #winetime #winelife #wineenthusiast #wineoclock #instawine #winestagram #winesofinstagram #winesofspain #winenight #winetasting #winelover #winelovers #wineglass #wine 🍷
It takes a special kind of bar to make me utter the words "Can I have a glass of your sauv blanc?", but dunningkrugerbar made me say it. Côtier (by Garagiste)'s Mornington Peninsula 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is different. Have you ever picked up white pepper and jalapenos from a wine? This is almost nothing but! #wine #winegeek #winedork #winenerd #winestagram #wineporn #winegasm #sauvignonblanc #sauvblanc #savvyb #australianwine #winesofinstagram #booze #boozeyoda

Quand je vous dis que le vin mousseux ça va avec tout ! Apéritif, plat principal ou dessert, elle sont assez versatiles ! Tout en fraîcheur, elles s'accordent très bien avec un plat riche en accord de contraste ou complémentaire avec quelque chose de plus vif et léger. Au fait, les bulles, ça s'ouvrent n'importe quand, pas juste dans les occasions spéciales ! Santé ! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ When I tell you that sparkling wine goes with everything ! It could be served at the apéritif, with the main courses or desserts, they're easy to pair ! It's fresh and can be served with some rich meal to make some contrast or simply with fresh and light meal like the wine. Oh and yess, you don't really need a special occasions to open some bubbles ! Cheers ! ⠀ #sparklingwine #bubbles #winepairing
You know that they say, “when in Bakersfield, do as the Bakersfieldians do, eat bison—and enjoy Syrah from northern Rhône. Right? 😂 🥩 🐂 🍷 • • Beautifully prepared bison from @cafemed1 with twice baked garlic potatoes and grilled asparagus. • • Wine from the Cornas region of Rhône. With a “ringer” added at the end (bottled had corked) in its place a great Rhone from central coast Alban Vineyard “Reva” • • #wine #frenchwine #wino #syrah #winetasting #winegeek #winery #winenight #winestagram #winemaking #instawine #winelife #wineenthusiast #winecollector #finewine #finefood #sommelier #winepairing #foodporn #wineporn #winegrapes #bakersfield #kerncounty #pasorobles #pasorobleswine #slocounty #california
Felt cute, might delete later. Don’t @ me. P.S. My punchline here is that forasmuch as “Bentley drivers, Louis Vuitton buyers, and jet fuel abusers sipping Petrus” claim to have been mused by “Once Upon a Time in America,” my own opportune mannerisms of a young Bobby De Niro reaffirm the fact that life imitates art far more than art imitates life. Although the above paraphrased citation that I use as a catalyst for my line of reasoning comes from a present-day writer by the name of Shawn Corey Carter, and is delivered pre-packaged inside of a rap song ready for 21st century mass consumption, Oscar Wilde had it all laid down in simple English over a hundred years ago. Through his writing, he made it clear that life imitates art not merely because of life's imitative instinct, but because of the fact that the self-conscious aim of life is to find expression, and that art offers it certain beautiful forms through which it may realize that energy. If so, one might think that most attempts by life to imitate art are objectionable, partly as a result of the art that we subconsciously choose to imitate. In most cases, it damn right is. That’s why everyone should be aware of it and choose wisely when making decisions on art consumption, so to speak. Because we’re nothing but an advanced breed of monkeys. And what monkey see, monkey do, you know. And while at it, sometimes we find ourselves feeling cute. Salud!

🍇2015#owenroe #pinotnoir “the Kilmore” #yamhillcarlton #oregon One of my favorite producers on earth 🌏 Owen Roe. Having Pinot noir vineyards in Oregon, they also produce fabulous Cabernet, Cab Franc, Syrah from Washington. David O’Reilly, winemaker from Ireland with deep family roots in agriculture and farming. The world is a luckier place that he chose making wine, instead of soy fields 🍷 👊small batch stuff, and this is definitely the wine you buy all 6 bottles if you see it anywhere. The label is a doorway to a gothic Abbey, in Ireland 🍀 The vineyards are in Yamhill-Carlton, and the wine aged in barrique for just under a year. Beautiful ruby color showing med body. Nose is super bright and bouquet. Violets, lavender, hints of coffee, and bright fruit. Raspberry, fresh cherries, and the barrel notes interplay of clove, all spice and a hint of pepper. Terroir notes of forest floor. 😍 body is medium, with + acid, and displaying youthful notes of raspberries, black currents, cherry pie, and this lovely gentle texture from the clay loamy soils. Very juicy 😋.Finish is dry and long lasting, with bright juicy_acid. Delish. 😋😍🍇🍷 ..Which Owen Roe wines are your favorite? Ever try their “chapel block” Syrah?? ♥️🍇😍😍#oregonwine #oregonwinecountry #oregonwines #oregonpinotnoir #wine #winetasting #winelover #winenight #wines #winecellar #winegeek #winenotes #winetastingnotes #sommeliers #sommelier #winetastingnotes #winelovers 🍷 #oregonexplored #owenroewinery #davidoreilly

Elegant and perfumed nose. Red berries dominated with a touch of oak and spices. Fruit forward yet offered some complexity.

@terroir_twosome brought a couple of leftover wines, both very good representatives of Burgundy. But this 2016 @domaine_de_villaine Bouzeron was really singing. • • Bouzeron is a Burgundian appellation that’s dedicated to the other white grape in Burgundy, Aligoté. This is certainly a delicious example of how good Aligoté can be. Nice acidity but with a roundness in the mid-palate. A lingering mineral quality slowly emerges after flavors of apricot fades away. I don’t know how this wine was fresh opened but it was a beauty when I tasted it. • • • #DomainedeVillaine #Bouzeron #Aligoté #TheOtherWhiteGrape #winestagram #wine #winetasting #winemaker #foodie #WineGeek
What a privilege to received this great gift delivery. I'm looking forward to tasting soon! @solitary.wine @jozua.joubert #owlhouse #sauvignonblanc #morningbell #pinot #pinotnoir #winenameswelove #wine #winelover #winegeek #solitarywine #winetasting #vin
You know when you opened that bottle of wine last night but didn’t finish it? And then the next night you think, “Well, I guess I/we should just finish it off! Wouldn’t want it to go to waste...” So you pull the cork, tip the bottle, and polish off the vino. That’s what this painting represents 🍷 . Wine bottles aren’t exactly the most nimble thing to create with. This surprises no one, I’m sure! But I like to try new ideas. This didn’t go exactly like I thought it would (including the lighting), but that’s just how it goes sometimes! I still really like how it turned out. . “We better finish that open bottle” | 8x10” | Tannat • Pinot Noir • Rosé | link in bio and how it dried in my stories 🍇
While Merlot may not be my typical go-to choice in reds, I decided to pop one open in honor of Global Merlot Month! Dudley on the other hand still might be a bit of a skeptic 🤣 . . . Over the years, Merlot has gotten a bit bad rap (thanks Sideways). It was thought to be too simple, too fruity, too sweet, too flabby, and lacking certain finesse and nuance. And while that may be true for some lower grade Merlots, or really any lower grade wine for that matter, it doesn’t mean it can’t be done right! Merlot has many of the wonderful qualities people love in a Cabernet. But, Merlot generally has a lower amount of tannins. Now what does that mean exactly? Well, it means quite a few things. But, the one point I really want to drive home is this — less tannins can sometimes mean less time needed for aging, therefore making a wine more ready to drink upon release. Which is great for people that lack a certain amount of patience, or simply don’t have the space, money, or proper equipment to age wine properly. In the 1970’s, when Napa wine was beginning it’s ascent to global wine producing stardom, many producers focused their energy to the King of red grapes — Cabernet Sauvignon. But one producer, Dan Duckhorn, decided to focus his energy on Merlot. A huge fan of wines from Pomerol and St. Emilion (two Merlot dominant regions in Bordeaux), Duckhorn loved Merlot’s soft, velvety texture, it’s seductive color, and its ability to pair with a wide variety of foods (again, thank you lower tannins). Today, Duckhorn remains one of the best producers of New World Merlot. But, because $50-$100 on a bottle of wine does not fit into everyone’s budget, Duckhorn introduced a new line of wines, called Decoy. Offered at a lower price point, but made with the expertise and guidance of Duckhorn’s winemakers, Decoy’s lineup is a way wonderful way for your everyday wine consumer get a taste and feeling of the more luxurious, high end wines. Their 2016 Merlot was honestly quite a treat! Blackberry, blueberry, black cherries, and a touch of mocha. A healthy acid structure helped keep this wine in balance. All in all, a wine that makes me want to continue exploring this classic grape! $15-20

Solid Italian Night~ 2006 Aglianico was off the chart. Almost reminded me of French côte-rôtie syrah with tobacco, leather and liquid smoke. Absolutely delicious. I kept going back & back for that one. My 2012 Dolcetto showed promise and acid. I thought it was wound up a bit to tight and perhaps needs more time in the bottle. Barolos were on point and chianti classico was a beast. A german/Italian grape called schiava? sure why not. #wine #wino #vino #winesnob #winegeek #winelover #winedork #wineporn #winedrinker #winedrinking #corkdork #ilovewine #wineonmytime #winejunkie #winosunite #wineaddiction #wineconnoisseur #pourmesomeofthatgoodshit #winenut

Valpolicella Superiore 2017. Allegrini, Italy. #thirstythursday Well-structured wine, with a soft, long and persistent finish. Brilliant ruby red in colour, with a pleasant scent of wild berries. Dry and velvety on the palate, it is characterized by a bitter almond finish.
