Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

9.0

Black cherry, gravel, and just a hint of green pepper on the nose. Shows the concentration of the vintage with black cherry, cocoa, and earth in the palate. Quite tannic on the finish, which goes on for quite a while. Perhaps a bit simple, but overall a nice wine.

La Chapelle de Meyney St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

My introduction to and one of my favorite St. Estephe.  at first blush is incredibly tight, tannins coat your entire younger, this wine is just tighter than a three legged cat in a dog pound. Give it a good hour or so in then tannins fade, it’s like it’s enough good structure to be able to enjoy the wine but you get wonderful flavors of fresh rose and chewing on green herbs that go into beef Bourgogne and all of that fun stuff. The tannins fade into velvet, not Lou Reed in the velvet underground, but an iron fist with a velvet glove. There’s a solidity behind it that smacks you in the face with delicious plum and green herb and just floral flavors that would make Monet slap himself in jealousy. Drinking this wine after giving it time to decant makes you realize that you actually have lost that loving feeling and need to drink more wine. — 4 months ago

A. Rafanelli

Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

One half of a double-blind, France Vs. USA 1990 vintage showdown that also included a Chateau Meyney Saint-Estephe. Both wines had great provenance and were properly cellared over the last thirty years. I opened both bottles about three hours before we got into them. Corks on both wines had held up very well but looked pretty gnarly. The Rafanelli exhibited great color, noticeable darker than the Meyney and quite a bit of sediment too which left the appearance a bit cloudy but certainly not murky. The fruit was remarkably fresh! Red and dark fruits with leather, red rope licorice, mushrooms and a heavier amount of smoke than the Meyney. Full bodied. This was remarkably tannic still! As I mentioned in my note about the Meyney, it was really hard to chose a favorite between the two. I think the Meyney had a more compelling nose but the Rafanelli had a slightly more gratifying palate. Regardless, we were all winners tonight! Sort of blown away how well this Rafanelli has aged and it has years to go before it dies. Bravo! — a year ago
