Heaven glimpsed: no pale clouds, no pearly gates, not even a golden harp; just a simple cart with 24 bottles of La Tache 1996, full and opened - #Burgundy #wine

These wines from the late, legendary Henri #Jayer represent a singularly heightened benchmark for #Burgundy and #PinotNoir. They are Led Zeppelin conquering the Garden in 1973 or Kurt Cobain rasping behind the stargazer lilies: pure glory, glorious purity. beetroot and menthol on the nose, velvet on the tongue, and exhilaration in the heart. Wines like these make even the most law-abiding drinker contemplate a life on the lam.

Lush and full, with explosive flavors of citrus fruits, acacia blossom, spicy oak, and a hint sun-drenched asphalt. How long is the finish? How long do you have? A Chardonnay worthy of Coleridge's “Kubla Khan”: “he on honey-dew hath fed/ And drunk the milk of Paradise”. Less poetically, it is a Creamsicle with euphoric powers. Madame #Leflaive, R.I.P.

Haymaker (by Mud House Wine) Savvie Blanc #NewZealand '13 - Proves yet again that $$$ is not needed for vinous satisfaction: $11 at a lonely, highway bodega yielded this lime-and-passionfruit charmer brimming w electric acidity

Domaine Henri Jayer Echézeaux 1990: Get out your Pharrell-style ranger hat because this concentrated, full-bodied #wine transports you straight to the forest with its pronounced notes of underbrush and cedar. Joining this sous-bois character are big swathes of dark fruit and traces of leather. The mile-long finish evokes cedar and bone broth, a primal revitalizer if there ever was one. Despite its quarter-century of age, it is still lively and intriguing, still moving like Jagger.

honored and inspired this weekend to serve as chair of Stanford Alumni Association's STARS Assembly, a two-day gathering of some of #Stanford University's most committed and energetic alumni. Rarely have I seen such collective passion for helping to solve the world's problems.

Plums, boysenberry, tomato leaves, w/notes of mocha and molasses. A gripping finish. And those are just her hands (asst winemaker, Sons of Eden - #Barossa Valley, Australia)
