Carignan Merlot French red. Serve chilled. Medium body, light tannin, very quaffable, not too juicy. Great summer red. Another good value from Jenny & Francois at $13 — 17 days ago

Bandol Rosé Blend 2020

👃 Watermelon, cold peach, cold clementine peel, crushed rock.

👅 Under-ripe peach, cold raspberry, red currant, orange zest.

Lovely, been a while since we've grabbed this bottle, in a great spot, probably killer in 2-4Y, but I'll never know; one off purchase.

Yep. Always lovely (I rarely use that word, but all Tempier’s wines are lovely).

Old Vines Sweet Berry Wine Carignan

Great nose of fresh raspberries. Muddled, carbonic. Good acidity on the palate, but the fruit didn’t follow through. Awesome reference. — 15 days ago

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend 1998

Kicking off birthday weekend with my first Musar experience. Sadly the cork did not hold up but after lots of straining I have some drinkable wine. The nose is extraordinary. Bordeaux profile with pencil shavings and tobacco leaf and a rich dark chocolate. Very expressive. On the palate this wine is mature and beautiful. Mostly aged Bordeaux character but there’s a mix of red cherry fruit and a touch of mint or menthol. Perfect drinking window as a lot of tertiary flavors are driving and the tannins are present but softened by age. — 17 days ago

If you don't mind me asking, what was the color like? The last '98 I had was quite pale...much more than I expected. Wondering if the bottle I had was flawed.

@Jay Kline of course - it was consistent with an aged bordeaux. a little faded and lighter but wouldn’t describe as pale

Figured. Thanks for the feedback. I need to revisit 1998

9.1

Natural wine done right, and a welcome, elegant take on the appellation. Blue fruited and high toned on the nose, this has good intensity on the palate yet maintains refinement, and a crunchy edge. Earth driven, there is a ferrous, sanguine quality to the fruit, and this develops nice complexity with air. Stays clean, this avoids the typical natural wine pitfalls with air exposure. Great producer, lovely wine. — 8 days ago
