@Delectable Wine this is the 2017 Calais Rocher Sauvignon Blanc.... New release that is not in the computer...
This wine poured a little bit heavy into the glass. The nose of peaches and white chocolate with chamomile. The entry is rather viscous upfront. Has a very soft and round profile, but then really gets edgy and leans out to the finish showing excellent acidity. The oak barrel aging definitely shows in the front and middle. The structure on this is quite good. This white wine will go with a huge number of dishes given its profile, and an immediate acquisition for the cellar. — 3 years ago
Outstanding Texas Merlot! When your wife is traveling and you can't open a bottle without her...... Helloooo Coravin! 😂
Delicious Merlot from the Texas High Plains AVA (yes Texas 🇨🇱 has an AVA!) and made by Calais Winery. Owner and Winemaker, Ben, is a mad French scientist when it comes to Texas grapes.
Notes of anise/licorice, rosewater, plum, blueberry, blackberries, and toast.
Aged 22 months in French oak barrels.
@Mark Flesher and @Shay A you both have got me hooked on these Texas Wines! Thank you!! 😀🍷👍 — 3 years ago
This was outstanding with thick bone in grilled pork chops. Dark cherry smoke finish. — 2 years ago
If tasting this blind next to a Calais Cuvee du Canton, you would think it was two different vintages of the same wine. Similar to the Calais, this has a nose of roasted fig and plum. Opens with a black fruit, fig, and spice cake note. Plum comes in to play towards the fimish and almost a blood orange type of citrus comes in as well. Finishes with some acidity but overall I'd say this is where the Calais actually exerts a little bit of dominance. Overall, a very nice wine. Still think it has a few years to develop. Wanted badly to rate it 9.3, but it just wasn't there. — 3 years ago

Rosé swap this past week. One of these for a bottle of Kuhlmanation Rosé. I was certainly hesitant. But dang, glad I did. This wine had my attention from the start. Poured a salmon color. Nose of strawberry, kiwi and mango. Palate more peach and mango. Acidity is there, but not too crisp and sharp. More rounded with food and a little more edgy without. Some dried herbs and wildflowers in the middle. Finishes with a subtle bit of grit. Delicious. Reminds me of Calais Rose of Cinsault with lots of delicious parallels. — 3 years ago
