Vint Private Selection California Merlot 2022

Surprising and pleasant element of sweetness for a bourbon barrel aged wine. Still has strength and complexity with a bit of spice. — a month ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Shay A
9.4

This was served during my annual WWC hosting. Typical format of sparkler, three whites, four reds, one dessert, all served blind.

Poured alongside the 2003 Mondavi VHR as a comparison. 60 cab/40 merlot.

Decanted an hour. The similarities between this and the ‘03 Mondavi VHR the first hour was shocking…even as the host, I wondered if I switched the wines. Slight hint of brett but certainly not overpowering. Leather, herbs de Provence, sweet vanilla pipe tobacco, graphite up front aromatically. Dark roast mocha, red and black berry fruit, cassis, really nice vein of acidity and tannin. This remained unchanged during the lunch. Seems like it’s in a peak window (maybe close to the top?) where I imagine it will hold another 5-7yrs easily before turning more tertiary.

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Deep Ruby with aromas of blue and black fruit, spice and oaky notes. Blend of mostly Cab Sauv, with Cab Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot & Malbec and aged in French oak (about 75% new) for almost 2 years. On the palate flavors of blackberry, blueberry and plums with sweet spice, oak, cacao and earthy notes. Well balanced, good acidity and fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, tobacco and tobacco spice. Delightful! — 7 months ago

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi

Luce della Vite Toscana Sangiovese Merlot 1997

Luce from ‘97, back when Frescobaldi and Mondavi began their collaboration with this signature Sangiovese Merlot blend. Shows greats signs against the past 26 years. Brickish color. The nose shows plum, chocolate, leather, damp fall tree leaves and wet wood. The wine gently surrounds the palate with hints of preserved black fruit (figs and plum). Follows with a dry mouthfeel, medium plus body, dissipating tannins, low but present acidity and alcohol; lingering earthy finish. In my cellar for a few years and always had my doubts but the wine still holds, keeping any longer is risky… — 7 months ago
