Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

This is a delicious Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast. Rich, complex and elegant.

Light burgundy in color with a wide reddish rim.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Showing red currants, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, light vegetables, tobacco, chocolates, light barnyard, coffee and peppercorn.

This Single Vineyard is nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself as a sipping wine.

This 8 year old is peaking now, although it will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.

Thank you Scott for sharing.

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Robert Parker says it best of the 1990: “This magnificent Lynch Bages has been drinking well since the day it was released and it continues to go from strength to strength. The biggest, richest, fullest-bodied Lynch Bages until the 2000, the fully mature 1990 exhibits an unbelievably explosive nose of black currants, cedarwood, herbs and spice. The majestic, classically Bordeaux aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, voluptuously textured, rich, intense wine with superb purity as well as thrilling levels of fruit, “ — a month ago

Château Lanessan

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

1998 vintage. Considered a right bank vintage (like 1964), this Cabernet Sauvignon dominated (75%) wine comes as a great surprise. Robert Parker wrote in 2000 that "the tannin might never fully dissipate", but then it did. Classic Bordeaux with more charm in the mouth than in the rustic nose. Still tastes amazingly young with still good fruit and freshness and ... dissipated tannin. Not very long but a delight to drink and terrific value at around 21 euro. — a month ago

Three Twins Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, dried figs, tobacco, raisins, cedar, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, chocolates, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, espresso, vanilla, spices, light earth, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This 9 year old, from the great 2013 vintage, is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 3 hours in the decanter.

Another wonderful wine from the hands of Mike Smith. Rich, elegant, fruit forward and extracted.

Getting to be at its peak, but not there yet, although very enjoyable at this point. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
