Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc 2019

I feel like it’s so tricky to rate this one because as a wine overall, it’s lovely but I feel like it should definitely be more in the Chardonnay category while I do love a buttery Chardonnay, it’s not what I expect in my Sauvignon Blanc; However this is what you will find in this bottle. While I think this is a lovely wine, I would categorize it for a light bodied Chardonnay lover — 5 days ago

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 1961

Day 2 of WineBoyz Wineapalooza. Tasted blind, but the whole weekend was built around taking down this bottle so we had a good idea this was it. Deep dark reddish color with amber rims. Looks a little like an old Madeira, and darker the 61 Latour next to it. Crazy nose that evolved all day long. Deep and penetrating, very floral. Notes of dark fruit, smoked meat, black truffles, cocoa, hoisin sauce, mushrooms and dark earth. Rich and silky in the mouth. I kept a glass of this in front of me all day long so I could monitor the evolution of it. Peacocks in a way that only a few wines can. My friend got this at an auction where the consignor was the original owner and acquired it directly from the Domaine - so impeccable provenance. Clearly one of the great, all-time bottles. A freak of nature and winemaking. Thanks for sharing, Murray! — 3 months ago

Château de la Louvière

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2004

I believe this was the second year Chateau Louviere used the Stelvin enclosure on their wines and this may have contributed positively to the experience with this bottle, considering it’s age and rather questionable provenance. The wine pours a sort of burnished gold color, slightly hazy. On the nose, the wine is a little funky with peach, orange, tangerine, lemon, yellow flowers, and wet ashy forest floor. On the palate, desiccated stone fruits and citrus fruits with some vanilla and a nutty marzipan-like thing. Medium+ acid, medium alcohol. Finish is medium+ finish, slightly bitter and slightly sherried but overall really quite satisfying and universally enjoyed. — 8 months ago

This sounds like the white Bordeaux blend.

@Bob McDonald indeed! Not sure what happened but it’s been corrected.

Les Bressandes Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1999

This is why I buy burgundy - wow. So happy to find 6 more w/solid provenance after opening this bottle. PNP and it still outdid the Faiveley with a 3 hour decant. Faiveley was also fantastic. — 4 months ago


Akasha Torrin Vineyard Syrah Grenache

2013 Vintage. Consistent with prior notes, yet this bottle was showing some sediment crusting. Winery direct bottle, so not a provenance issue. Best wine of the weekend. Decant recommended. — 5 months ago

Post Parade Wines

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

2012 Vintage. A bit off the pace from the last two bottles, this bottle was from auction so provenance may be a factor or it is in a dumb stage and needs more aging. Best after 2 days argon gassed so I’m going with the latter. — a year ago
