Château Simone

Palette White Rhone Blend 2015

Been open more than a week and STILL hits! Beautiful amber gold color, big luxurious nose, with generous notes of apricot jam, amber, fruit danish, and a slight latex note on the top. The flavor just keeps on going! Silky and rich, with slightly tart notes of yellow stone fruit, a deep minerality, and slight salinity on the finish. Really unique and well balanced. — 14 days ago

Lighter body than we expected. Subtle nose. Plum and red fruit on the fore pallet. Soft tannins with occasional hint of cocoa. (Grilled steak, baked potatoes, garden fresh asparagus- Paula’s birthday dinner on the lanai) — a month ago

Palette Grand Cru de Provence Grenache Rosé Blend 2020

I understand the hype behind this. Great aromatics and flavor. For me it’s just missing the acid zing to give it more life. — 3 months ago

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Rosé Blend 2018

This was presented double-blind to the Tasting Group. The wine is copper in color with a pinkish hue, possibly due to skin contact. No signs of gas or sediment. No staining of the tears. On the nose, some slight VA, underripe stone fruit, grassy notes, slight petrol notes, olive brine, white pepper and very slightly smoky. On the palate, fruit is more pronounced; bright and tightly coiled. The stone fruits are confirmed…adding quince to the fruit set. The wine is quite floral too and there is a slightly toasted marshmallow thing. The wine is dry. Not tannic. Acid is medium+. Wonderful texture. Guesses were all over the place but when I said that it was not testable, one taster called Chateau Simone Palette Rosé which, is a really great call. Anyway, Musar Rosé ended up being too far a stretch for even this group of seasoned wine geeks. This was my first experience with the 2018 Musar Rosé and I would recommend to hold for a few years an allow to uncoil and flesh out. — 10 days ago

San Simone

Prestige Friuli Grave Merlot 2015

Drinking a Merlot from north eastern Italy is a whole different experience. Dark, earthy and minerally. Mild, very approachable, little tannins yet a lingering finish. — 3 months ago
