Château Latour

Le Pauillac de Chateau Latour Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

J. Kim

The 2016 has rounder fatter fruit and less angular architecture than the 2010, and more intense structure than the 2015. The aroma is a classic old school Pauillac, black fruit, tobacco, cigar box and graphite, on top of leathery barnyard bass notes that one often finds in old Lynch Bages or Pontet Canet. More masculine than feminine with lack of vanilla and minty notes. No overripeness, over-oakiness, over-manipulation this year. Type IV Bordeaux in which the aromatic complexity and the structural intensity is well-matched. Less polish this year but the balance between the presence and the reserve is so well-judged. — a year ago

Sequoia Grove

Rutherford Bench Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This was awesome! PnP’d. Very balanced wine. Medium plus depth. Integrated dark blue and black fruit with oak, vanilla, and cedar. Somewhat similar to Pontet Canet. Lovely silky texture and medium plus finish. Exactly how Napa Cab should taste! — a year ago

Neal Family Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Neal never stops impressing!!! Would have guessed Bordeaux all the way. 1hr+ decant. Nose of dark cherries, cedar, and menthol. Blue and black fruit on the palate with well integrated alcohol. Medium depth and medium plus finish. Reminds me of Chateau Pontet-Canet but 1/5 of the price. Neal rocks!! — 2 years ago

Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot

Champ-Canet Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

2019 vintage. Scratches the itch and hits the spot. Very very solid without being quite spectacular for now but it's early in the game. could see this hitting a 9.4 in the next few years. 8.12.23. — 4 months ago

What better way to watch the Dutchies' opening game in Qatar with Canet Alternative. Owned by Dutch family Lemstra-blake, they have a small plot that yields just two barrels and results in an elegant mineral driven wine in the style of Burgundy — a year ago
