L'Alberello Bolgheri Superiore SuperTuscan Blend 2017


When I first tasted this with Coravin we were sure it had TCA, but it wasn’t excessively bitter or astringent and it had plenty of rich ripe black I uncorked it today and the cork definitely smells of old winery, old church and almost pine trees but I wouldn’t call it corked cork. Even with the cork issue the wine has a smooth oily attack and firm fine-grained tannins. I am thoroughly enjoying it. #bolgheri #tuscany #italy #supertuscan The winery should definitely look into their cork provider. — a month ago

Valery Columbia Valley Merlot Cabernet Franc

Wow! Incredible find. In my recent wine tasting at Avennia, this was by far my favorite. Award-winning Merlot. Loved it that first time and each subsequent Coravin experience. — 3 months ago


Bonne Nouvelle Pinotage Blend 2006

March 17, 2021. Spontaneous tasting w/ C — South African reds, Bordeaux blends. Whoa! This full bodied powerhouse is 57% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% pinotage. Aromas of Cocoa, coffee, deep black fruit. Lots of old leather, cocoa on the palate. Unfiltered w/ lots of sediment, so not a good coravin candidate. Double decanted, then purchased the last 5 bottles available on Vivino. 15% alcohol so go slow. — 3 months ago

Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2004

1 week later and another 2 glasses with Coravin. Really fantastic nose with spices and cacao, just like a Greek spice market. Also some luxury leather and prunes, I love this bouquet. In the mouth a great acidity that goes well with the vegetable risotto. Great taste and and strong finish. — 3 months ago

Nana Estate

Osher Mitzpe Ramon Syrah Blend 2015

Deep purple in color with a wide reddish rim.

Very flowery nose of blueberries, sweet strawberries, plums, violets, light wood, dark chocolates, spices and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, plums, light wood, licorice, earth, spices, leather, tobacco, espresso, light cola and peppercorn.

Spicy long finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is such a nice Syrah from Israel. Nicely balanced, tangy and fruit forward. Showing a soft mouthfeel with nice complexity.

Elegant and enjoyable by itself or with food. As it opens up, earth and vegetable notes show up.

I coravined it almost 3 years ago and really enjoyed it, but figured it needs a few years to mature in the bottle. Now it is drinking wonderfully right out of the bottle, which wasn't the case then.

Nice to see that this time, the coravin worked for this long, although I've had many others that didn't last, even after a few months.

I paired it with a few different Brie cheeses and nuts.

A blend of 96% Syrah, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit verdot. Aged for 21 months in French Oak barrels.

15.1% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Very disappointed. I had a more mature bottle fail to hold up last week so I had an itch still to scratch and went younger but still ready. Or so I thought - perhaps should have waited another 10 years?Poured out half with a Coravin and it just never got going. Very understated and reserved. Even with a few hours it never opened up. Perhaps it’s bottle variation but I will try again later this week with the second half. — 3 months ago

Yes, suggest a wait of another 10 (or 20+) years before trying another Mouton 05... just had an 82 of this and it wasn’t close to being ready; the 05 is in that class IMO. If you must open one, give em at least 8+ hours of air in a decanter before consumption

Thank you Mike. I tried second half and let air half a day and it was decidedly better but this one was a bit early. Appreciate the advice for the next one!

Château Cos d'Estournel

Les Pagodes de Cos Saint-Estéphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Aerated through the Coravin aerator. Deep garnet purple. Abundant nose of cassis, plum, and blackberry cobbler. Medium palate echoes the nose adding black cherry and a hint of graphite on the medium finish. Medium plus acidity. Medium, non-assertive tannins. The second label is already hitting its stride. Ready for everything you’ll be taking the first label to in a decade or two. Drink now through opening the first bottles of the big guy! — 3 months ago
