Fonseca

20 Year Old Tawny Port Blend

Had this a year+ ago, tried a new batch, noticed label color changed. A big fan of Tawny Ports, especially the 20 year blends are a Fav. Fonseca Port was founded in 1822 and successive generations of the Guimaraens family have upheld the Company’s reputation. Medium amber color with aromas of honey and pronounced nutty notes. On the palate ripe dried fruits with sweet cinnamon spice and oak emerge from the glass. Soft tannins long smooth finish ending with a sweet nutty character. Very nice. — 2 years ago

Silky, smooth Right bank style blend of 53 Merlot, 29 Cabernet Franc 13 Cabernet Sauvignon, 4 Malbec and 1 Petite Verdot from the Stillwater creek Vineyard Blueberries, Vanilla, blackberry jam and fine tannins.p95 points Wine SpectatorbrThis has great presence, offering a dense cloud of blackberry, cherry and spice flavors that hover over a sleek frame of fine tannins, with just enough acidity to keep it fresh.

Les Darons Languedoc Grenache Blend 2017

Wow. We’ve been drinking Grenache blends- the 2017 is simply wonderful. Silly and smooth... no oak as it was fermented in concrete tanks. ‘Les Darons’ an affectionate expression for The Parents! Old vines Rock!!! — 2 years ago

Tardieu-Laurent

Vieilles Vignes Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend 2017

Ruby red color with a watery rim. Hint of large game blood, wet earth, and fresh dark cherries on the scent. Ripe dark fruit up front, sweet almost; followed by stern tannings and a dry finish. A young wine, medium body, almost light alcohol but with lots of character yet easy drinking. Unassuming wine, extremely enjoyable. One of those, great all-around, Southern Rhône blends... — 3 years ago

I’m not surprised coming from this producer, @Éric Núñez. I expect that this will further improve with age. Your thoughts?

Agree Ron. Will improve with age but taste good now as well. I’m torn between saving it and immoderate gratification.
