Bonanza

California Cabernet Sauvignon

9.0

Full-bodied Napa Cab from the Caymus family...wine son of Caymus founder. Lot 2, recent vintage, blend of Napa Cab vineyards. Big palate, balanced but rich, smooth, great with steaks. Intentionally a bit fruit-forward, a bit like many big Pinots. Not nearly as prosaic as some raters would have you think...would buy again. — 8 days ago

Tenuta Santa Maria alla Pieve

Riserva Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

Mmmm... another boozy bonanza but the alcohol was so well integrated. A giant bouquet as expected and luxurious flavors of brown sugar and dried black cherries. Acid-heads rejoice! — 7 months ago

Caves São João

Quinta do Poço do Lobo Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Flavorful cabernet that starts with spice and notes of tobacco and ends with a fruity bonanza. Recommend to let wine aerate before drinking. — 2 years ago

Bodegas Faustino

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2005

Haven’t had this vintage in 5 years., and the extra 5 years of aging makes a difference.

I also had the 1994 exactly a year ago, and it’s even better than that.

Great value considering how aged it is. Smooth. Berry bonanza.

I play a game with my wife where she picks a bottle from my cabinet while I grill a steak (in this case, a 1.25kg dry aged porterhouse) and I blind taste the wine and tell her what it is. We made a bet that if I got the correct bottle (out of over 50) that she had to go and spend $150 on a bottle. If I got it wrong, I couldn’t shop at the LCBO for two weeks (that’s like a year for anyone else).

I guessed old world. Spanish. Approx 10 years old... but thought it was a 2010 Cune Gran Reserva.
