I never understand when people say they only drink one type or one varietal of wine!! "I only drink red" or "I only drink Cabernet" you are missing out! 
The world is full of amazing wine, both red and white and I love them all! This reserve #chardonnay fro @aowinery drank like a lullaby in my mouth. It is a bit more on the apricot and peach side and less crème brûlée.  Don't over chill this one, your palate will thank you. #cheers #winepimp #winelover#napavalley #thewinepoor #livinginthemoment #californiawine #winelife#wanderlust#whatsinyourglass

When the label and the wine are both beautiful art

An #fbf to one of my favorite producers of California Chardonnay, @chaninwine, and this gorgeous Bien Nacido 2012, of which only 17 barrels were made

I also particularly like this label painting (all the art is his own, fyi). Bravo!

Beniot Torquette who happens to make wine for one of my all time favorite Napa properties, Realm, makes this little beauty. 
In the category of bang for your buck this 2015 Arbalest is a fantastic offering. This a Bordeaux wine (Merlot dominant I believe) made by a french winemaker who usually makes Napa wine (confusing right?!?!) Anyway this bottle has that  french style of earthy/minerality and brings some fruit forward characteristics to the table, resulting in a crowd pleaser that can be had for around $25. Ya that's right 25 bucks a bottle for a bordeaux wine made by a master!!! Trust me on this one, buy buy buy. then drink drink drink. ... #bordeaux #merlot #redwine #thewinepoor #napa #napavalleylife #winesofinstagram #drink #frenchwine

The 2015 Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay from @matthiasson_wine is off-the-charts good, especially considering the $30 price tag 
It is a richer vintage for the wine. My wife said it tasted like Meursault when she first tasted it. After thinking about it, I concurred this was true — it has the fatness of a riper year, but all that zip and nuance (at 12.9% ABV) that you find in a really good village Meursault ... or of course a 1er Cru 
I think we finished the bottle in an hour with dinner, something that rarely happens. That speaks volumes for the pure joy this wine brought to us

Warm flat ripe nose where someone put vanilla and cinnamon in the whip cream to make it somehow more interesting. Still, flat, gutter-runoff, floating with trash and an oil slick from the urban drains everyone forgets dump into my ocean. Smokey burnt tar, roasted green and compromised with alcoholic burn. I haven't even tasted it yet. 
Spicy and round, a sharp note somm would call "acidic" and rep would call "pepper" puncuates the early mouth feel, but don't be fooled by either of these charlatans: it's a flat out unbalanced nuance churning straight into tannins like orange-peel being squirted into your eye by that fat kid in 3rd grade. I mean... I love RRV and Dutton Ranch as much as the next guy, but the banana-and-battery-acid on this one gets an asterisk.

Trying a new pairing tonight: popcorn and ice wine! Not a bad bedtime snack! This Riesling ice wine from #pacificrim is pretty complex! Pears, apricots, definite sweetness, but balanced with great acidity! #icewine #winewednesday

My day was made when Michael Silacci... the wine maker from #opusone came and chatted with me about wine for a good 15 minutes.  I can't smile any bigger!! Such a gracious man. I look forward to drinking his wines for years to come. He is the reason I fell in love with wine. So today is a big deal for me!! #cheers #winelover#winepimp #winelife I truly #lovemylife #thewinepoor #napavalley #getinmyglass#livinginthemoment #travel #roadtrip
@zachys built their brand as a purveyor of fine European wine, by identifying and making wines like these underrated and frankly undervalued examples from the Tuscan coastal region of La Maremma accessible to US consumers. Produced by the family run @fattorialepupille estate, it was a pleasure to compare the 100 point 2012 Saffredi to the recently released 2014, both of which were available sub $100 on release. And the wonderfully bright, pure and fragrant 2015 Morrelino di Scansano is arguably as compelling considering its mere $16 price tag!

Marc Parcé - Collioure (blanc) - 2014 - Roussillon / France.
🇫🇷 Une balade printanière. Grenache gris ponctué de grenache blanc. Belle fraicheur et rondeur pour ce très joli vin porté sur les fleurs blanches et un pointe d'agrume.
🇬🇧 like a spring walk. Gray and white grenache. Beautiful feshness and roundness for this nice wine. White flowers ans citrus.

Elegance.... Lemon, sweet citrus floral nose, extremely complex wine with some earthiness, lemon and crisp apples on finish. Such a pleasure to sip!
🍇
What a lovely glass... seek out this wine and thank me later. You will love it.
🍷 
Winemaker Notes:
Pierre Vincent (formerly of Maison Jaffelin) declared that 2009 was a "quasi-perfect vintage and the only reason I say 'quasi-perfect' is because we had some early season hail in Bonnes Mares, Chambolle and Charmes-Chambertin. The growing season was like 2005 that gave us very ripe tannins and round and supple acidities. .

A French maid's outfit outshines the dust and cleanser, pulling dark fig and wet leather into musky places no frills can cover. Sweet reward is dangled miserably under the sweaty glow of earth and briar, fleshy outcropping ripe for the taking. I'm not a huge fan of 2012, but this one--despite a bit of obvious alcohol--maintains flirty decorum in spite of ripeness.

Did you know that one grape cluster (approx 75 grapes) gives us one delicious glass of white wine?

Enjoying @rebecavalencia Birthday with a great lunch and this gem! 2013 Odette Estate #Reserve #Chardonnay 😀 I was saving this limited production Chard for a great day like today. Aromas of fresh pear and apples with lively acidity with a hint of vanilla and green spice. The palate is rich with creamy notes of pear and fig with light notes of oak. Great wine! @odetteestate #loveOdette @plumpjackgroup

I was invited to participate as a judge at @thepanelwineclub - they invite 4 folks in the #wine industry to blind taste wines of three varietals with the top three scoring being sent to wine club members. 🍷🏅Our picks go out in #October! 🎃 Live or visiting Sonoma? Stop by their wine shop for a killer, well priced selection of local and international wines, too. 👍🏻

A little throwback to a when we visited our friends' 1,000+ acre camp in the middle of nowhere in PA

A kaleidoscope of wines, plus all the ones they brought. We had all of the ones I brought above, except for the Simone, which I plan to enjoy soon even though it will age for decades

André Clouet Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru 'Dream Vintage' 2002, Champagne – this is a rare bottling of the estate's Chardonnay (their wines are mostly Blanc des Noirs as their 8ha of holdings are in Bouzy + Ambonnay, home so some of the best Pinot Noir). This was drinking extremely deliciously and had fine tension between ripeness, toastiness and acidity. The range is generally good value for Champagne; I picked this up for $57 (good for a 15-year-old BdB!). The labels are always distinctive, and pay tribute to an ancestor who was a printer to Louis XV's royal court at Versailles

Weingut Knoll Riesling Ried Schutt 'Smaragd' 2010, Wachau (Austria) – one of the most enjoyable Rieslings I can remember having. Everything was in place, with power, grace and harmony. This disappeared quickly. Also a relative bargain at $31. Their beautiful and distinctive labels feature St. Urban, the patron saint of winemakers and vineyards

Château Pontet-Canet 2008, Pauillac – I picked this bottle up a while ago while visiting my family in OR. I can't deny that the critics were correct on this one. It's definitely one of the darkest, deepest reds I've seen from Bordeaux's 2008 vintage. I wouldn't call it a beast, but it definitely has the stuffing to last (and improve over) many a year. This bottle seemed a bit closed, although all the hallmarks of Pauillac were there. I had hoped for a bit more, but probably just opened it up a little too early. My loss, as the bottle cost $99

Château Tirecul La Gravière 2004, Monbazillac — a brilliant dessert wine from one of the top estates in Monbazillac. Certainly gives top Sauternes a run for its money – this still had plenty left to give and is a much spicier and more honeyed style than most Sauternes, with distinctive tropical fruit notes of mango et al. Very distinct, fresh finish too. Lovely and only $28 for the 500ml bottle

Salty honey, melon and mineral explode with acidic fireworks straight at the viscous banana and sharp fresh paper placating and shredding the nostrils all at once, vibrant and alive, churning your Riesling dreams and goals. Where hipster offerings run somewhere between *weird* and *dumb*, this Spring Mountain stalwart cranks out all the goodness it has for DECADES. In the mouth, lilikoi coates the tongue, sweet and peppery, lavish and razor-sharp, curious curls of petrol greasy syrup fall around, elevating and propping up the eviscerating acid.  Fat and ripe EXACTLY where it needs to be. And waifish where you want it.

Dom in the desert.

Thanks to @brunson_burner1 for bringing this lively 2006 to kick it with the Bedouins while watching the sun set over the Wadi Rum.

We drank better @srslyalex (and with a better view) than anyone in Jordan that evening.

Sangiovese is one of our favorites, and grown right here on our estate in Sonoma Valley.  Sangiovese is a type of grape found in the Chianti region in Italy, and of course pairs perfectly with pasta and pizza!

Harvest is upon us... Cabernet On High!
Lots of beautiful, tasty fruit... QUESTION REMAINS: Is YOUR wine glass ready for this vintage?!?

Cole Creek Vineyard in Russian River Valley... "Very little of this wine exists, sadly." -- Virginie Boone... well said @virginieboone!! A BEAUTIFUL glass of Sonoma wine with true sense of place in the bottle. By @rameywinecellars
.
For Me: Dark garnet in color, ripe blackberry fruit, rich plum notes, some spice on finish, earthy, little black cherry.

Mexican laundry and muddy road convinces that Sonoma glycerin-ey notion to regurgitate tired Cabernet stereotypes propped up on mint-scrubbed cellar floor and sage-induced siestas offering burnt, desiccated fruit, a chalky, walnut-peel wipe-this-off reaction to every gland it comes in contact with and raunchy, rot-gut tannin tying seamlessly into the fruitless entry in well-timed fashion, giving no glimpse of anything the imagination possibly stretched into potential in the nose.

Let's chat about this 2014 Alpha Omega ERA!! Hot damn this is an amazing bottle of wine!! Decanted over an hour and sipped as it opened up.  So much complexity and body that I can't wait to to pop another bottle in the near future to see how it's developing. Of your interested in getting your hands on a bottle message me! Notes of Cedar, eucalyptus, dark berries and some baking spice.  #cheers##aowinery #thewinepoor #napavalleywine #erawine #cabernetsauvignon #winelover#livinginthemoment #ilovemylife #winepimp#wineoclock #californiawine #californialife @aowinery

Any idea what a '91 Carneros Merlot should taste like it 2017? Some bricking for sure. Not much fruit that I'm picking up. Bought from the winemaker Joel Peterson himself. #merlot #ravenswood #carneros #wine #vino #sonomacounty #thewinepoor #dirtybandits #notsureifthisisdelicious
#sundayfunday The exquisite @creilly40 and I finishing off the weekend in style with this stunner from #pasorobles. @ninerwineestates never fails to win with an approachable 2014 Cab at a good price point. Jump on this baby if you can find it!

My favourite Italian red wine is technically made in France. The new vintage is gorgeous. I could drink gallons of this stuff! Spicy, herbal, lifted, energetic.

Thick green briary nose crammed with weeds, wet bark and frosting; an oil-slick on pond-water, greasy and visceral but smart. Light cherry is dedicated to the attack and after that, the entire palate is a shell-shocked orgasmic jack-hammer of structure.  While the cigar and tar is dripping lingering vestiges of maraschino on the sides of the tongue, the mid-palate is awash with turbulent young tannin, seeking out every crevice in an attempt to hammer this wine home.  No alcohol burn, just a tiny pepper against rich, sweet tannin.  Yes, sweet tannin.  You read that right.
