I tried so many off my bucket list wines in one night with great company @hide_restaurant
@dominio_delaguila#Albillo vs #CocheDury#Meursault to start. Without a question, the spanish white from #ribeiradelduero was the best white wine of the night. Textured with aromas developing in glass from petrol and turpentine to nutty marzipan, it stood out. #coche was good but lacked a shine to it. It didn't have the classic coche reductive thing that my friends said was a key characteristic. It also didn't develop in the glass enough which is what I wanted.
When the reds rolled out, the party started. Burgundy battle with #MugneretGibourg#ClosVougeot vs @lucienlemoine#2013 was a great comparison. The MG started quite reductive, but blew off after an hour or so. I preferred the MG as I think the strawberry and dark cherry notes were a bit more forward and crunchy and the acidity was beautiful in the finish. The lucien was decanted early on and developed nicely, but I wanted more fruit in the front. I think it might need more time in bottle to come in to its own.
We then moved to blind tasting big reds. #WOTN was definitely the @josephphelps#insignia#1987 . Not only is it my birth year wine, it was singing in the best of ways. Smoke, dark cherries and black fruits, a rich finish that reminded me of pomerol in a weird way. Would have sworn it was merlot if the cab sauv wasn't prominent on the nose. Truth was #napa . Others at the table were leaning towards late 90s cabernet from left bank. The youth of the wine blew me away.
Second up was the @ridgevineyards#RidgeMontebello#1995 guesses around the table were left bank bordeaux from 90s or earlier, and it had enough of the graphite character I associate with cab franc. Really stumped me. Finish was medium + at best, but the the fruit and mid palate were very moorish.
Spectacular views and a tasting room to rival all tasting rooms, the wines were delicious too! 🍷 @ovidnapavalley

Dinner with guests was so good I almost forgot to get a picture ! Wonderful day in Sonoma County!
Thank you @spirecollection for an epic day. Lokoya winery is as bad ass as it gets. So lucky we got a chance to visit. If you see bottles out there grab some for an epic drink. Chris Carpenter kills it #lokoyawinery#napa

I am a huge fan of @harmlessharvest coconut water and drink it daily! #ad So, when I found out Harmless Harvest makes a new protein and coconut beverage, I had to get my hands on it! Not only is it plant-based and has protein, it tastes great too. It’s the perfect snack for this on-the-go mama. It comes in multiple flavors and available at @wholefoods 🙌🏻 #harmlessharvest#plantbasedfoods
