    This was just killer. Easily one of the most complex white wines I've had in the last several years. If you're on Fass, I'm buying a case of this if it comes up again. Lemon zest, a slight bit of the petrol note you get sometimes, honey, white flowers, strong minerality and acid. Just killer.

    More CdP. Have a French/Italian former colleague arriving tonight to stay for a few days, our mutual hospitality deal (in place for close to two decades now) is he cooks, I provide the wine, we both bitch constantly about how fat we are getting.

    Bierzo is seriously underrated. And good value.

    It's amazing Rioja can still put out decent wines for around $10-12 USD. The value proposition of Left Coast wines continues to fall.
