Château Lynch-Bages

Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

Just fantastic tonight. Truly singing and such a wonderful example of classic Bordeaux from a producer we love and have had the good fortune to visit. Paired with a grilled leg of lamb on a beautiful early fall evening. Classic nose, seamless on the palate, great acid. Finish is slightly thin but still really a great wine. So fun. Opened 5 hours before drinking, no decant. — 6 days ago

Clone 4 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

If you want Napa cab, I can’t imagine a better wine that fits the bill. I love Rutherford so this is perfect. Dust covered wild picked blackberries, cedar, some pine, a hint of dark chocolate on the nose. Palate is chocolate covered raspberries, more cedar, bit of green pepper, also white pepper, plums, dirt, and the tiny hint of candy orange. This opened up after an hour. Also improved tasting outside. Is this winery underrated because they make a lot of wine? Are the 500 dollar Napa bottles that much better or just status? — 2 months ago

5 Puttonyos Aszú Tokaji Furmint Blend 1993

Outstanding! Liquid gold. A honey, mango, and apricot extravaganza! Granted, this is 5 and not 6 puttonyos, but it is hard to imagine anything better. — a month ago

Dominus Estate

Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

Needed to try one early, opened on Monday, poured a glass then immediately recorked the bottle. Decanted 4 hours the following day, obviously still 20 years too early, no amount of air makes up for bottle age.
Spectator # 1 for the year plus a couple professionals gave it 💯 points.
Nice to see Delectable is as unreliable now as it was 5 years ago, hence the reason never to pay for this app.

Is there another app you’d recommend?

If I paid for the upgraded version I’d be upset with the amount of times this app has frozen over the years, that’s why I’m sticking with the free version.

Bell Wine Cellars

Clone 6 Unfiltered Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

Dry with light oak, medium tannins, and high blackberry notes. Aged 8 years to develop a pleasant syrupy texture, but could be aged further to cut the spiciness if you are looking for a smoother sip. — a month ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Slightly more intense colour , narrower garnet rim. More elegant complex and darker fruits . More intensely fruited but less roasted . Again quite mineral , medicinal even , but elegant and with more fruit extract than the Bosconia . This comes across as more tannic needing more time than the Bosconia . Deeper and fuller on the finish . Better in 5 years will last a further 5-10. Tasted 01/09/2022 — 23 days ago

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2017

Another one from last night’s birthday dinner. I had a little left to revisit on day 2 and it is still amazing. What a classic. I could sit with this for a long time. The smokey, deep dark fruit/licorice, and velvety mouthfeel, all make this wine shine. This one will definitely improve with more age. Easily one of the top 5 wines of the year for me. — 2 months ago
