8.9

Pure but simplistic. A little rough or coarse around the edges. I disagree with 94 points #Parker because while pure and clean, it is overly stoic and slightly boring and lacks complexity. #calatayud #garnacha — 20 days ago

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2018

Coastal influence, diatomaceous soils. Briny salinity is noticeable on this one, coupled with bright fruit (black Cherry and cola). Traditionally styled PN. Delicious. — 3 months ago

9.0

Another wine which was overrated by Luis Gutierrez of #Parker I understand why he liked it because he’s a huge fan of #Garnacha and from Avila in particular because that’s where he’s from, but this wine from #Navarra is simple, which by itself isn’t a bad thing. It’s just straightforward good Garnacha #Grenache and perhaps due to it being matured in #tinajas it’s got #coolkid status. — 20 days ago

Etude

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting of nine 1996 Cabernets, Merlots and Bordeaux blends from California, Bordeaux and Australia. I thought this was a gorgeous wine. Apparently he also released two ports that year that both received 100 points from Parker. — 2 months ago

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

210320週六老婆作菜請兩位小學同學帶酒和甜點同聚。
1778 在 Pauilac 北邊 St. Estèphe 開滿小花的山坡建立,所以取名Montrose的二級酒莊。
June. 2016 Robert Parker 給1989年這瓶滿分100,並稱其為 80 年代 Bordeaux 前5名!
65% Cabernet Sauvignon
25% Merlot
10% Cabernet Franc

到2030年都適飲,同學阿達本想過10年再品嚐,想人生無常、又被同學小琳拱了下、就先喝先贏了。

一開瓶的味道輕柔、不像是32歲的酒,但還是有陳年Cab 的香味,丹寧...filigree
30' 香味變黑梅味、丹寧益加柔順
60' 黑梅香更淡,口味回甘
90’ 香味回到淡cab,酸甜口感well balance
150’ 餘韻猶存

Reynvaan Family Vineyards

Walla Walla Valley The Unnamed Syrah 2014

This Washington Syrah is really stinky, but some definitely love that.

Showing black fruits with earth, wood, spices, barnyard, vegetables, tobacco leaf and dark coffee.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Short finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

Fruit forward with some earth notes, that make it interesting.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly so be patient.

Would be interesting to try it in 3 years.

92 points Robert Parker. 90 points Wine Spectator.

A blend of 92% Syrah and 8% Grenache Blanc.

13.4% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$65.
