Bar-M Vineyard Chardonnay 2009

Delectable Wine
9.1

Diatom’s 2009 Chardonnay Bar-M, from vineyards in Los Alamos, is a gorgeous wine and a fabulous value. Tangerine oil, white flowers and light tropical accents give this curvy, airy Santa Barbara Chardonnay so much appeal. Breezy saline notes linger on the wonderfully inviting finish. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020) — 20 days ago

Les Varonniers Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2007

Very norther rhone but a step lower than chapoutier's Granits 07 drank recently both kept the same way. Still for the price at the time it was a steal...now the prices have gone up and i still think Granits is best to pick — 3 days ago

Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé

It is Saturday night and I have opened the Maurice Bonnamy Crémant de Loire Rosé Brut. A blend of 100% Cabernet Franc grapes from south of Saumur.

On the nose there I find strawberry, raspberry, tart cherry, minerality and some yeasty qualities.

On the palate there are notes of strawberry, raspberry, tart cherry, bell pepper, yeast and food minerals.

This sparkling wine has a beautiful salmon pink color with a constant fine bead that is medium bodied with high acidity and a long fresh, crisp, clean finish. Continued good health and stay safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

La Bernardine Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

It's not necessarily the wine I'd prefer to drink, but the 2016 La Bernadine was certainly aptly placed (by Chapoutier) as the "better" wine in our impromptu Chapoutier study. Compared to the 2017 La Ciboise, this was more concentrated, primary, and persistent. It's a fruit bomb on both the nose and palate, mixing red and black fruits, and a discernable candied sweetness in the back of the palate. Spices, dried herbs, and musk sit nicely in the background. I feel the acidity and plush tannins helps mask the whooping 15% abv. Finishes long and sweet, with a interesting hint of orange rind-like bitterness. The quality is undeniable, but it's not a wine I'd care for. — a month ago

“impromptu Chapoutier study”

La Ciboise Luberon Red Grenache-Syrah Blend 2017

Nice to have this impromptu Chapoutier study during a casual night out with friends. Expectedly, Chapoutier orders their wines pretty well. The "lesser" of the two was certainly lighter and simpler, but one I'd happily grab for over the other when looking for a mid-week drink, and perhaps aptly priced for doing so too. Brambly, peppery, herby aromas lead a bold blue-fruited and spicy palate. The flavours are ripe, yet remains juicy enough courtesy of well-judged acidity and hints of mineral goodness. Chalky tannins and a medium finish. A proper southern Rhone, so can't complain. — a month ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a wide brick rim.

Great nose of blueberries, blackberries, bell pepper, cedar, leather, dark chocolates, light vanilla, diet cola, dark coffee, black pepper, light alcohol, spices, earth, leather, vegetables, vinaigrette and tobacco.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, figs, vanilla, cedar, licorice, coke, tobacco, spices, black pepper, earth, herbs, dark chocolates and coffee.

Long finish with fine grained tannins, yet persistent, and tangy cherries.

What a great Cabernet sauvignon from Napa Valley this is. I had the 2006 recently and this is so much better.

This 13 year old is showing a great nose. I kept on smelling on it for a long time. Drinking very nicely now, with lots of complexity.

Thank you John for sharing this with me.

A good quality wine that still has lots in it to last another decade or two. Nicely balanced with great complexity and a smooth mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, and changes every 20 minutes, which is so nice to see, and so interesting. I love these kind of wines. After two hours in a decanter it shows tannins and structure.

Delicious, tasty, interesting, rich and elegant.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged for 20 months in French oak barrels.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

95 points.

$170.
