Brothers Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Decanted two hours. Dark and opaque colour. Very nice nose of black currant, cedar, licorice and very oaky. The palate is powerful, oak and dark fruit dominate, found very little freshness, finesse and elegance to balance out the power at this stage, seems too young or disjointed. 89-90 for the potential maybe

Carafé deux heures, couleur foncée et opaque. Beau nez assez typé de cèdre, cassis mais avec une dominance du bois. La bouche est puissante et tannique, dominée par le bois et un beau fruit noir mais peu de fraîcheur, finesse ou élégance pour contre balancer cette puissance non contenue. Trop jeune ou un autre gros Cab Californien sur-évalué?

Frei Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2017

I don’t have anything fancy to say. It’s eminently drinkable, with a good acidity and medium body. — 4 days ago

Garrison Brothers

Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey

I’ve enjoyed Garrison Brothers’ Bourbon for many years now, and have gone through more than my fair share of bottles. Now, at long last, I’ve decided to indulge once more and get another bottle so I can make my all-time favorite Old Fashioned (called the “Hye Fashioned,” which is served at Four Seasons Austin’s lobby bar/lounge, Live Oak). Today was my first attempt at re-creating this sensational libation at home, and it was a hit 🔥 It consists of Garrison Brothers Bourbon, Remy Martin VSOP, Demerara simple syrup, Angostura bitters, orange peel, and Luxardo cherries. The Garrison Brothers Bourbon provides an integrally raw, firm backbone to the otherwise sweet nature of this luxurious iteration of a timeless classic 🥃 — 5 days ago

Paravel

Henry Brothers Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon

Best cab I’ve had all year. This smells very fruity and acidic but is incredibly smooth and subtle on the palette with a full bodied finish. — 6 days ago

Gauthier Brothers

Crozes-Hermitage Red Rhone Blend 2017

@Delectable Wine this is the red Crozes. Thanks!

Gorgeous nose on this new project from the Gauthier Brothere. Lovely, lurid, gamey, peppery, white pepper, cracked black pepper, huge granite, such complexity, really refined and well made. You can tell from first sniff there is a high degree of winemaking skill here. The nose is terrific. 9.3/9.4 verging. I love well made Crozes. Palate is a delight, superb purity and freshness and densely fruited but also dense minerals. So sappy and pure. Blackberry fruit, red berry fruit, sappy spices and gaminess. Bacon even. This is so well fruited and balanced between sauvage/game and pure unreal fruit on a granite background. Just so impressive. After air impressive sweetness and energy abound. Really terrific balance and finish.

Kay Brothers

Basket Pressed Grenache 2016

This is Kay Brothers base Grenache - Griffons Key being their premium Grenache. Mid Ruby. Aromatic raspberry and other red fruit notes, some jujube. Soft tannins and soft acid. I think this is best to drink now. Soft, flavoursome and easy to drink. McLaren Vale I think, is the best district for Grenache in Australia. — 13 days ago

Frei Road Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Really drinking nicely. Big fruits, touches of match stick, nice acidity. @Antonio Galloni ‘s notes are pretty close to what I’m getting as well, though it does tip toe into the tropical fruit as well. Pretty well balanced for that bigger feeling Chardonnay. — 23 days ago
