This one surprised me! In a delicious way — 2 months ago
This is wonderful. Full and round. Mouth filling with great body and length. I note it is now quite expensive which is no surprise. Last of the 2015 in my cellar. — 3 months ago
Sho-nuf I like my chateauneuf! Wild, floral, but muscular and strong.
Usually, I try to pay attention during wine tastings, but honestly a lot of the time I am just imagining how well I would do in American Gladiators. Especially the early 90s version. (When I was a young and impressionable kid.)
I thought Malibu was an idiot and I knew I could take him out in the jousting competition, though I was certain Nitro would bash my head in with a pipe pretty quickly. Diamond... she scared me. The intense lipstick reminded me of some horrible creature of the night in search of blood. I preferred Lace. In fact, I really preferred Lace. (The first version: Marisa Pare. Not the later Lace played by Natalie Lennox Merritt.) I imagine the reason I have a penchant for wild tangled hair now is because of my infatuation with American Gladiator Lace when I was 4-7 years old. When I was younger, I would often imagine battling with Lace. As the events got more intense she would throw herself on top of me in frustration and we'd roll down the gladiator pyramid, making out in a heap of sexual energy and wild animalistic thrusting.
But I digress.

Sweetly pungent nose! Raw and unfiltered - ready for rough and raucous food pairings! Thinking bratwurst with sauerkraut and caramelized onions. And light grilled meats like Greek gyros with tzaziki sauce. Big phenolics here, will delightfully challenge some char. Looooong finish to match those huge aromatics! — 10 months ago
The nose shows nice spring & yellow fragrant floral fruits of; lemon, green melon, lime, white peach, grapefruit & pineapple. Honey notes, beeswax, vanillin with beautiful, delicate soft minerality and chalkiness.
The body is full, lush and rich. Fruits are; lemon, green melon, lime, white peach, passion fruit, grapefruit & pineapple. Honey notes, beeswax, vanillin with beautiful, more pronounced delicate soft minerality and chalkiness, a touch of white spice with spring & yellow fragrant florals. The acidity is round and really good. The rich, balanced, well polished finish is delicious. Nice Egyptian white.
