09' Larkmead LMV Salon. 63% CB 16% CF 5% Malbec & Merlot.
Two hour decanting & it's still a bit tight. So much going on in this wine. Even more so than Russell's EE last night.
Big boy Red ... dark berries, mocha, unlimited layers in this wine. 10/15 great years in it.
2004 through 2010 👍
I've got to purchase some older vintages of Salon/ Solari !!! These wines are like hidden gems. -at Humu Humi, Grand Wailea-Maui — 3 days ago
13' Pahlmeyer Chardonnay. Sourced from their Atlas Peak Vineyards . Honeydew, hazelnut, nicely integrated oak ,apple pie, light acidity(after an hour). A creamy and spicy finish that lingers for a bit . Drinking nicely as a pop & pour. Serve at slightly warmer then cellar temperature. Drink. Edit- IMO better at room temperature. — 4 days ago
14' Radio - Coteau Savoy Vineyards. Medium + bodied . Intense and bright fruit. Notes of pear skins, lemon blossom. Floral & herbal notes. Touch of oak . Good acidity throughout the palate. at- Sarento's On The Beach, Maui Edit- So much better after an hour of warming up. Easy drinking wine. — 2 days ago
10' Bevan Cellars EE Red Cuvée. I personally enjoy a well-made Cabernet with a "chunk" of Cabernet Franc in it. The older I'm getting the more I'm enjoying CF profile/flavors.
Give this at a minimum an hour decanting.
Color- Purple with dark ruby red edges.
Full bodied. Blue & black fruits pop out, cider, espresso, pipe smoke also. This is why I purchase wine. Nothing truly stands out on this blend. Drink/Hold.
Bevan and Favia are two of my favorites, when it comes to CF blends . at- The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea, Maui — 4 days ago
