Turley Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard: 1993 – 2015

Three years ago I had the good fortune to taste a complete set of Turley Wine Cellars’ Hayne Vineyard Petite Syrah, made from vines planted in 1953. This past March I followed up with a comprehensive look at Turley’s first—and arguably greatest—Zinfandel bottling, also from Hayne Vineyard, in this case from vines planted in 1903!

Stem, London, UK

Stem is the third restaurant opening for Mark Jarvis following the much-lauded “Anglo” in Clerkenwell and “Neo Bistro” (also in Mayfair). On this showing, just days after its soft launch, “Stem” might well be the best.

2017 Crios Torrontés Argentina ($15.00) 90

2017 Crios Torrontés Argentina, 90 points

This classic unoaked Torrontés, made from grapes harvested very early, offers scents of lemon, fresh apricot, flowers and lichee and a salty, sappy, very dry palate impression that reminded me of Chablis. It should make a terrific aperitif but could also pair well with grilled fish or sushi. (ST)

1988 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Montrachet

The 1988 Montrachet was a stand out in a recent dinner that spanned 20+ vintages going all the way back to 1973. This is an especially fine example of a wine I have been fortunate to taste and drink many times over the years.
