Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Franc - Merlot Blend 2012

This wine is drinking beautifully with concentrated and ripe black cherry, creme de cassis, mulberry, plum, purple fig, violet, black licorice, anise, graphite, pencil shavings, sandalwood, vanilla bean, clove, leather, forest floor, and tobacco notes.

It has an excellent balance of primary, secondary and tertiary characteristics.

On the palate, it has a silky texture and fine-grained tannins. Acidity adds lift. High alcohol contributes to the full body and robust mouthfeel.

It’s made with 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Andrew Geoffrey Vineyards

Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Great Wine. Andrew Geoffrey cabernet sauvignon diamond mountain district. 2016. Must decant for about 20 minutes.
Very nice chocolate and leather palate with a very dry buttery finish. Lots of dark berries up front and in the finish. Not very complex though. Lots of licorice throughout.

Dom Pérignon

Brut Champagne Blend 2006

A blend of a tad more Chardonnay than Pinot Noir, nice lemon yellow color with golden edges, aromas of fruit, spice and brioche notes, nice mousse and bubble flow. On the palate flavors of fresh fruit, peaches, pineapple and ripe lemon with hints of toasted nuts and citrus zest. Long finish ending with rich briny yeasty mineral character. Drinks well now but will go another 10+ years! — 3 months ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Still remarkably youthful, it’s rich, dense and dark fruited, layered with classicism of cigar box, cedar and spices. The palate is concentrated and powerful with a silky texture and incredible length. 95 is nowhere near its peak. Many more years to go. And while I’ll never be a real Bordeaux lover, it’s clear what makes these first growths special. — 8 days ago

Tous les Jours Santa Ynez Valley Syrah 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Syrah Tous Les Jours is a total knockout and an unreal value. Sumptuous dark fruit, spice, licorice, mocha and dried flowers all race across the palate. This plump, juicy Syrah is an absolute joy to taste. $20.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2023) — 2 months ago
