Casa Pedro Domecq

Reserva Magna 2013

Sweet fruit, blueberries, plum, and vanilla on the nose. Great balance of fruit and tannins with a touch of earthiness from the nebbiolo. The petit sirah mellows the nebbiolo a bit and allows the cabernet to peak through. Interesting and enjoyable. — 5 days ago

Roussillon Red Blend 2018

MICHAEL COOPER
9.0

Blend of #Grenachegris and #grenacheblanc and #Macabeu.
Alluvial Rolled clay pebbles for the Macabeu.
Shale (schist) lands for Grenache.
Fermentation of musts in demi muids (500 l), aging on lees. Racking of wines and bottling without fining (a little reduction on the nose)

Stone fruit tree. Wide range of plum and black cherry notes, stones, med+ acidity, dark coffee note, flavor profile is in the red-violet spectrum. Smooth medium body with fine tannin. Tight with slightly elevated fume. Will age gracefully. Would like to see it in 3-5 years.

Domaine Sérol

Les Originelles Côte Roannaise Red Blend 2018

A very noble expression of Gamay, with a certain density, remarkable for this entry level. We can hardly do better in terms of value for money.

Kaleidoscope

California Red Blend 2017

Color burgundy, quite clear. Nose of tobacco leaves, mint, strength of alcohol, ripe grapes, and nice refreshing grassy fragrance. Taste of good subtle sweetness, lots of tobacco leaves flavors, pine wood, sage, cocoa, cherry jam, ripe grapes almost grape juice, spice, almost no tannins, and medicinal syrup. Aftertaste is also quite sweet with more medicinal note. Not bad a a blend. Just too sweet for me. — 11 days ago

Amuse Bouche

Vin Perdu Napa Valley Red Blend 2017

A blend that usually includes Syrah and merlot....this year 80% cabernet and 20% cab franc...a 2nd wine that got more cab this year since 1st wine from one of the vineyards did not get produced.

2 hour decant (little sediment). A majestic inky purple color. On the nose: dark cherry, vanilla wafer, floral, pepper, cinnamon chocolate. Taste: A medium body, fresh, juicy wine with dark plum, spice, cassis, cedar, with a raspberry mocha medium plus finish. No need to wait, drinking well now with a decant.

Poderi Garona

Boca Red Blend 2015

Nose is dense mid to late season cherry with some dust.

Palate is dense cherry. Black cherries. Succulent. Really terrific fruit. A nice acid kick on the finish. Licorice?

I’m not sure how potent the secondary flavors are here. I’d be inclined to drink this over the next 2-3 years on its brilliant fruit.

Bought from fass selections

Spinifex

Tabor Vineyard Red Blend 2009

Consistent notes from my last note in April 2018 although I note with age the youthful raspberry notes transform into more dried plum, earthy and meaty descriptors - the latter a bit like Biltong. Rich and savoury at the same time. 100% old vine Mataro from a single site in the Barossa. — 10 days ago
