Wifey is out of commission, so to speak, so I had to hunt and provide. Locked in on jerk chicken with roasted veggies.
She wanted something light in the glass (relative to cab), so I opted for Aston. Nose presents cinnamon. Mid palate is gnarly, rustic and textured. Loads of barrel toast and a hint of tart cherries, with prominent acidity. Finish keeps going… we may have under clubbed our rating. — 11 hours ago
Visually, slight bricking has begun.
Nose displays tertiary notes of tobacco, brown sugar and wood. Palate is consistent with the nose, moderate tannins and acidity still support the mature black fruits and coffee notes. If you like wine on its youthful side, this vintage is beyond that point. — 7 days ago
Detroit. Living large with my boys.
On the nose this is complex. Comes across as rustic, with notes of graphite, cinnamon and cocoa powder. Palate is ethereal, as expected. Nice weight and balance. Somewhat dry mouthfeel with medium tannins. Mature cherries blend with moderate acidity. Finish is completed with cigar box. Food will help this wine. Drink or hold. Loving the moment…

Great product. Prior notes apply. Drinking beautifully now. Especially since I corrected my stems after @John Van Trijp made a good point. This is on the 92/93 bubble, so I’ll round up. Happy Father’s Day to all those dads out there! — 14 hours ago
Same presentation as the Gravely Meadow. So consistent. If you have not tasted this, please correct that scenario. Laser focused, displaying pristine fruits and moderate tannins. The regal structure caresses the mid-palate on the finish. One of the most impressive, balanced cabs in the price range. — 8 days ago
One of the best Aubert’s we have tasted. We were worried about longevity - no such fear required.
Good depth on the nose, begins with roasted almonds, marzipan and meyer lemons. Palate is sharp, almost edgy. White stone fruits lead the way, followed by beeswax, and caramel. I guess the caramel is a leading indicator to consume these now.
@David L, thanks so much for sharing this great producer with us ✌🏾 — 2 days ago
