Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, floral spice and cedar notes, blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate flavors of blackberry, plum and black cherry with cacao, tobacco, licorice and spice. Fine grainy tight tannins, well balanced on long finish, ending with fruit, cedar and earthy mineral character. Very nice, will age well but wait a few more years to really enjoy! — 12 days ago

Opus One

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Opus One. Yes!! There is lot going on here. Perfumes of rosemary on the elegant side and that leather/cigar thing with blackberry hint on the firmer side. And they do not conflict. Going to let the last six of this vintage rest for another 5 years — 2 months ago

The Prisoner Wine Company

The Prisoner Napa Valley Zinfandel Blend 2021

Deep purple in color; plums, black cherries, and oak on the nose; high acidity; high tannins; a little hot; tastes like black plums, licorice (I think), and blackberry jam with a long peppery finish. Nellie likes it. I do too, but it's more fruit forward than what I prefer lately, but very good — 3 months ago

Bin 28 Kalimna South Australia Shiraz 2010

Dark dark Ruby - call it black. From the ripe 2010 vintage. Black fruits, mulberry, anise, herbs - very full bodied, very Barossa and very Penfolds. At least 10 to 15 years in front of it. As HH said undoubtedly a warm climate style, and it’s so true. On the palate ripe plum, blackberry and liquorice. Oak not as prominent as in previous tastings. Next one in mid 2025. — a month ago
