Wall Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Lovely. Corked fell apart as I opened ir. Pop and pour. A touch of funk at first, which resolves quickly to reveal soft coffee, cedar. cola and dense blackberry. On the palate, solid acidify, richly textured...more black and blue fruit and velvety tannin on the finish. — 9 months ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2005 Ducru-Beaucaillou, tasted a dozen times since en primeur, was picked 21 September to 6 October, matured in 90% new oak for 18 months. It delivers a wall of black fruit on the nose that gradually opens up with aeration, touches of incense and wild mint, cedar coming through with time. But these aromatics remain very backward. The palate is medium-bodied with firm grippy tannins, fine acidity, solid and focused. Tremendously and uncompromisingly backward, this is a seriously fine Ducru-Beaucaillou that is just not yet ready, so go back to the cellar and leave it there for another five years. Tasted at the Ducru Beaucaillou vertical at the château. (Neal Martin, Vinous, July 2022)

Huge, elegant and pure nose. Herbals, wild mint. pillow like minerality, and huge spiciness. Savory element. Super complex. Sugar snap peas. Bok Choy. Wow this is super super elegant and has wonderful depth, power and concentration. So mineral. So light on its feet. This is a wine of contrast. The length is crazy. This is genius. Wall of flavor. Profound. Epic. Best ever? — a month ago

Papa's Syrah 2016

Very nice syrah. Well balanced, nice lingering finish. Lots of fruit on the nose. Fruit forward in the pallet. Although high in alcohol it doesn't drink that way. It isn't hot in the least. — a year ago

Oh fun low key on the tannins for Tannat and it is working for me even though I do like to abuse my mouth with too-young Nebbiolos but let’s all treat ourselves well in this pandemic ya? — 2 years ago
