Chateau Le Chew

Sabon Estate

Rocky Top Amador County Zinfandel 2018

Ah Sobon Zin. The good stuff. This has some lovely cherry and berry aromas. With a bit of cut wood and nice smelling pipes. Flavor a a hint hot with a brandy/port streak, but that doesn’t detract from things because the fruit and zip is also there. Plenty to chew on and savor. This is jammy, classic foothills stuff. Full flavored and robust. Quite tasty too. — 2 months ago

Orange Wine 2020

If one was to open a bag of Scooby-Doo fruit snacks in the middle of a barn.
If one was to sit down with said opened bag of fruit snacks, grab a light blue Scooby and slowly chew.
Taking in all the scents a barn can offer.

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2013

Great moment of pleasure with this Morgon 2013 still alive, and superbly advanced. Aerial notes of dried flowers, rose, peony, fresh strawberry, and pretty evolution notes, truffle, it pinote! The final is permanent, on fleshy tannins with a lot of chew.

Superbe moment de plaisir avec ce Morgon 2013 encore vif, et superbement évolué. Notes aériennes de fleurs séchées, de la rose, de la pivoine, de la fraise fraîche, et de jolies notes dévolution un peu cuir, truffe, ça pinote à fond. La finale est rémanente, sur des tanins charnus avec beaucoup de mâche.

Joy Road Vineyard Chardonnay

Maybe not my favorite RM Chardonnay, still high quality wine, of course very young. Almost Big League Chew bubble gum flavors on night #1, My wife didn’t get that at all, oh well. Some toasty notes. — 2 months ago

His Chardonnay’s are always hit or miss with me. So I have a hard time wanting to purchase them.

Stonestreet Winery

Christopher's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Hello. Have we met before??? This is love at first sight, first taste. Incredible complexity and depth with lingering intensity. Near perfect structure and feel. I’m super into the game-y dried meats underlying overtones of blackberry fruit, raspberry jam, and brilliant iris and violet nose. I can almost chew it and I wish I could. — 2 months ago

Château La Tessonnière

Cru Artisan Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Very peculiar nose (I would never have placed it in medoc) with red fruits, a bit of toast, almond, tobacco. I would have placed it in Italy blind, wow! The palate is very well made but again nothing like something you would expect from a rive gauche wine. It's rather thin and very much acid driven, you could almost chew it. Raspberries, red currant, before a mid palate with a nice tannins layer that dries up with a dusty touch. Nice finish with the same red berries and that drying effect. Unexpected Bordeaux in a very nice style. You cannot feel the barrel aging at all, I like it very much — 2 months ago
