Baronne Philippine de Rothschild

Pastourelle de Clerc Milon Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

I guess I'm comparing age versus pedigree here within the Clerc Milon family.

It opened wrapped up in a knot. Off putting initial aromas. Deep dark just like it's rich younger sibling. Just beginning to brown at the rim. 30 min in it's starting to relax...

Soil. Licorice and something savory on the nose-- almost like a chicken stock. Alcohol infused chocolate on the palate with more earthiness. After 2 hours, I believe there may be more room to open or maybe it's wishful thinking because it all ends rather muddy and bitter..

In the end, I believe this wine is past peak. Probably by a couple or 3 years. It's still interesting and would pair ok with big red meats, but don't count on it too much longer. It's not a stand up 2010.

Klee Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Tannin has grip to it. A mouthful takes me into a cloud forest, a knot of jungle and brush. Intricate and sinewy, like the musculature of a dancer. — 2 years ago

Miner Family

Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Started rough, like an unwound rawhide knot. After a few minutes of air it relaxed to show its layers of mountain flavors: leather, tobacco, black cherry, cassis, then hints of vanilla and tea in a balanced structure of acidity and tannin. Classic Atlas peak. — 4 years ago
