Kavalan

Sherry Oak Single Malt Whisky

2023 Whisky Advent Calendar, Day 7: Kavalan Single Malt Triple Sherry Cask. Didn’t save my notes correctly due to a wifi glitch. Only the rating number was saved and I just noticed three days later. But I do remember I thought this was very complex and quite interesting. — 3 months ago

Roc-Epine Lirac Grenache Blend 2020

Lots of juicy blue fruit. Black pepper and earth. Just a little savory. Tremendous Southern Rhône QPR and a great match for Texas style BBQ if you can believe it — 6 months ago

Ùnic Côtes Catalanes Grenache Noir 2019

Wow! This is delicious! Black cherry, raspberry and herbs. Light enough to drink when it’s really warm outside but still has body and zest! Very smooth and elegant! Loving this wine! — 7 months ago

Domaine Le Roc

La Folle Noire d'Ambat Fronton Negrette 2020

After the Sicilian off dry white which I drank only a glass of in disappointment, I decided to open something I knew would make me happy. We are watching Dunkirk while drinking this wine and the contrast between the on-screen drama and the funky liveliness in the glass is stunning!
As usual the nose is a bit funky at fist and takes a good 20 to 30 minutes to set into place. Then it's violet, blueberry, clay, that iron thing too, which I always smell in this cuvée, no matter the vintage. The palate is big, bright and fruity. There are blueberry notes all along, some cherry too. Some width, a nice and soft mouthfeel, some tannins in the rear, and a really nice anf long finish with fruits, some pepper, and a nice tannic layer. There is a subtle savory note too, almost meaty, that makes it more complex than you would have bet at first. Of course this is, as always, a very biased review, but I mean, what's not to like there?

L'Effet Papillon Côtes Catalanes Rose Grenache Noir 2021

Tasting this 2021 vintage with Alicia in Slaughter Beach DE, watching the sunset. Alicia says, “I like it. A nice mineral finish.” I taste a nice strawberry finish. We’ll discuss this down to the last drop tonight, lol. — 4 months ago
