Le Clos du Caillou / Domaine du Caillou

Les Quartz Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2015

The quality for price is outstanding. In 1936 “Caillou’s owner had no desire to join the governing ranks of anything, let alone a wine appellation. This brazen act excluded the estate from the AOC and essentially carved out a chunk of Châteauneuf-du-Pape‘s border. Today it continues to be an ‘unclassified’ section in what is otherwise some of the most prized vineyard land in the area“-Ian Cauble, master sommelier — 4 months ago

Domaine Les Gryphées (Pierre Durdilly)

Cuvée Les Balmes Beaujolais Gamay 2019

Frankly, I can’t believe this is a $20 wine!!! To quote Master Sommelier, Ian Cauble: “For $20, this Gamay is no longer threatening to top of the Pinot Noirs of the Côte d’Or- it’s comfortably in the throne, serving as the humble king of value Burgundy.  — 5 months ago

77 Napa Valley Syrah 2014

Label is pretty garish. A bit Trump-ian. Heavy as a 2 pound hammer. Smells interesting. Beach rocks, berry pies and rain storms. Also lumber in the sun. Flavors are beefy and bold. Balanced. A bit too clean for true Syrah style and expression. It’s got a nice zip to it. Plenty of cutting acid. That helps keep it intriguing and keeps the fruit bombs at bay. Finish is raspy and sultry, like a smoker, lady singer. For a G.O. $8 wine I’m pleased with my purchase. I’d not pay the $55 this was at the winery (which I think folded). It’s a nice wine. — 4 months ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Terrific 2015 at less than $60. Wow, “There is also a deep mineral component here-notes of crushed gravel and potting soil-that offers a counterpoint to the abundant fruit.” - Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier SommSelect — 5 months ago
