Thursday we had hot dogs on the patio, with the 2016 Keller Von Der Fels Riesling Trocken.
Dry but with sweet pit fruits, ginger, wet rocks. Good acids, crisp. B+

Some lovely days and before dinner a few nights we sat on front porch. The 2016 Terre Nere Etna Bianco had ripe peach fruit, a little waxy note, but not enough acid to stay lively. Have liked more in past vintages. C+/B-

With yakitori chicken, rice with nori, bok choy in oyster sauce the 1998 Macarini La Serra Barolo. I had this standing up as a backup for a tasting couple weeks ago, rather than return to racks just opened and decanted it. Took a while to get its stride. Red fruit, violets, a little funky edge that veered between barnyard and truffle. Got some tar after a while. With a couple hours air this was quite lovely, balanced young Nebbiolo with a long finish. A-/B+

Saturday I hit the butcher for a couple of 30 day dry aged rib steaks, grilled and served over herb salad with horseradish/caper dressing. That recipe was suggested as a Petite Sirah pairing, but I felt like young Burgundy. I was a little worried the 2010 Rollin Ile des Vergelesses Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru might be closed, but it was lively and approachable, Rich raspberry and cranberry fruit, earth, smoke. Theres some tannin but not aggressive. Good acids, long finish. I should buy more Rollin. B+/A-

Sunday some scallops from our local farmers market, rapini and Swiss chard from CSA, pasta with pesto and the 2009 Bedrock Caritas . This is a Bdx blend (60 Sem/40 SB). Full and rich, but overoaked. This is my last one, I kept hoping for better integration, but not yet. C+/B-

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.

I love this bottling. Many of the Keller wines are priced beyond my
pocketbook, especially so since Jean's not a Riesling fan (and certainly
not a Bueker :P) but this one hits my sweet spot for pricing and style.

I had to Google the encepagement of this wine. What a strange mixture!

I've been buying Rollin when I see it offered after it was touted as a
rare unchaptalized Burgundy. In my limited experience they take a long
time to open up fully, but they do reward patience. I've got the '06
and '12 IdV. I'll bring one the next time I'm headed your way.

Yes, I buy every vintage


2016 Terre Nere Etna Bianco

Well I think it's mostly Carricante and Catarrato, with only tiny amounts of some other indigenous grapes. So not so strange for Sicily

Always happy to try Rollin, always happy to see you. Hope you are doing ok with your tasks.
