Avenger Paso Robles Syrah Blend 2016

Unctuous. Best way to describe this wine right now. Drank alongside a Marcoux CdP and this wasn’t even close to the Marcoux’s character and depth. Not to say this wasn’t a good wine; in fact, it was quite good indeed. Expectedly modern. Blue fruits and spice and lots of it. Bigger than the Marcoux for sure. Color was a huge contrast being more purple and the Marcoux’s bright red. Tannins weren’t too obtrusive. Decent acid. Not sure what to do with these wines. Drink now? Do they need more age to become their best? The 15.5% scares me a bit. Right now, this comes across too young. — 3 years ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2000

Produced and bottled by Domaine de Marcoux.
15% alc.
Served out of a magnum and needed 1+ hour in the decanter to come around.
Despite the producer (which normally is one of my favorites) and probably due to vintage this showed just OK tonight.

While waiting for the other wine to open up, this has kept us company. Bright, raspberries and fig- I swear I keep getting a waft of melon, then open my eyes and can it possibly be? — 6 years ago
