Château Lynch-Bages

Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

Classically styled Pauillac with plenty of currants, leather, pencil shavings, spice box. Nice firm tannins that ads a youthful posture. Starting to enter its peak. — 2 months ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

This was served during my annual WWC hosting. Typical format of sparkler, three whites, four reds, one dessert, all served blind.

Poured alongside the 2003 Mondavi VHR as a comparison. 60 cab/40 merlot.

Decanted an hour. The similarities between this and the ‘03 Mondavi VHR the first hour was shocking…even as the host, I wondered if I switched the wines. Slight hint of brett but certainly not overpowering. Leather, herbs de Provence, sweet vanilla pipe tobacco, graphite up front aromatically. Dark roast mocha, red and black berry fruit, cassis, really nice vein of acidity and tannin. This remained unchanged during the lunch. Seems like it’s in a peak window (maybe close to the top?) where I imagine it will hold another 5-7yrs easily before turning more tertiary.

Antica (Antinori)

Townsend Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Nice Cabernet Sauvignon. Powerful wine that must be consumed with steak or strong cheese. Quite good with filet mignon or strong American cheddar. No need to wait: ready to drink right out of the bottle. Well-made but unremarkable and expensive at $64 for what it is. — 2 months ago

Rattlesnake Zinfandel 2016

Primarily Zinfandel with a bit of Petite Sirah (10%) blended in. Intense dark ruby/purple color. The aromas and flavors of black cherry/raspberry, blueberry, rose petals, black licorice, fresh herbs and pepper spice are equally as intense. Noticeable vanilla and pleasant earthiness on the long and lingering finish. Rich, complex, juicy and powerful (16% Alcohol) but nicely balanced. Quite memorable. — 2 months ago
