Château de Beaucastel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2003

Liked this one quite a bit. Showing off the Grenache more and makes for a different experience for older Beaucastels. — 9 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Dark rubi robe with a slight brick color on the rim. One would never say its over 40 years old. Cedar notes intertwined with dark cherries, tobacco, pencil lead, and secondary aromas. Dense, rich, but balanced and fresh, its a bold Pauillac ready to drink but absolutely no rush. Great bottle and one of the best 82s we tasted. — 11 days ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

1989 vintage. WOTD! Funky, old grandparents nose for a spell, then blew off. Still a bit of the feminine (blueberries, raspberries, cocoa powder) characteristics evident. Better than the last bottle tasted (4.4.23 a 9.4) but not as good as another fairly recently (12.9.22 a 9.6). Still pretty damned delicious and still at the top of the bell curve for another half-decade or so. Hit. It. Now. Ain’t getting better. 5.5.23. — 23 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Dark crimson with purple hues in color. Very aromatic nose giving the wine it’s beautiful scents of black-red fruit, perfume, milk chocolate and toasted marshmallow with subtle notes of mint and cigar. Taste is smooth and elegant with a luscious feel. Red fruit/dark plum , spice and mocha flavors are dominant with secondary notes of gravel, tobacco and leather adding to its dry medium plus finish. A treat for sure on this lovely Saturday night. — 7 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Iron and blackberry right off the nose. There is airy clove and black current quality to it that seems to disappear on the tongue. It reminds me of super fine, dark chocolate. The image that comes to mind is a living oak tree— it tastes alive. Pair with pets for a Beauceron, a loyal, intelligent, devoted dog breed that is known for guarding livestock. Sit in front of a fire, drinking this wine while eating some dark chocolate. Or better yet, a hearty filet mignon that you can share with your new Beauceron best friend. — 12 days ago

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1959

Dark scarlet color with a deep center. Notes of black cherry, cola, roses, cassis, some spice and a little wood char. Amazing perfume in the nose. Smooth and silky in the mouth. Lots of drama with this one, and many agreed the 59 was better than the 45, the 61 and 82 Latours beside it. Bravo! — 7 days ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (64%) Merlot (31%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petite Verdot (1%). Dark ruby/purple color. Intense aromas of red-and black berry/cherry fruit with hints of graphite, dried purple flowers and slate. Pallet is quite (black) fruit forward featuring blackberries, currants and plums. Additional notes of black tea, baking spices and tobacco. Very silky tannins and beautiful acidity. Medium-plus body and a long lasting finish. Nice depth and density. Thank you for bringing this one, James W! — 20 days ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2011


When in Rioja, drink Rioja.

Reddish in color with a wide reddish rim.

Nose of red fruits with earth and mildew notes.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity and mouthfeel. Elegant and restrained.

On the palate red fruits with earth, light wood, spices, coffee, dark chocolates, tobacco leaf, herbs, light wet leaves and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This recent release of this Rioja Reserva is drinking very nicely now.

A good quality wine. Easy drinking, and a good food wine that I paired with dried meats and crackers.

This 11 year old feels so very young still, and will continue to age nicely in the next 25 years.

Needs time to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle too.

A blend of 70% Tempranillo with Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo. Aged for 6 years in used American oak barrels.

13% alcohol by volume.

92 points.
