Alder Yarrow

Because when a friend comes over on a hot afternoon and asks to drink pink…. Bright cherries and plum skin with a mineral kick, Tavel delivers! There’s just something so right about an appellation devoted to rosé. — 22 days ago

Chapelle St. Theodoric

La Guigasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2013

Pop and pour, notes from 1 hr open. Better than I remember my last btl being, but still not up to the level of that first '11. On the nose: lavender, incense, loads of garrigue, and soft red raspberry..very pure grenache. On the palate: serious acidity, hi-toned red raspberry, more herbal notes, with some salinity, almost olive brine/game, though I believe this is 100% grenache, and attenuated tannin on the finish. This has taken a very savory turn, and the tannin on the finish is slightly attenuated. Yum! — 8 days ago

Domaine Charvin

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2016

Blackish robe with a rubi hue, this is a dense, rich wine, but not overdone. Black fruits, peppers, spices, very complex and wrapped up with fine tannins and great acidity. Top notch bottle and looking for more ! Hold if you can, or have fun. — 14 days ago

Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend 2018

I had it before, and this time I gave it a light chill and paired it with beef sirloin steak.

A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. Unfiltered and fined.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$22.

Château de Beaucastel

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2009

Wow, this is amazing for a 12-year old Cotes du Rhone. Nose almost reminds me of mature Bordeaux (good shit, not regular Bordeaux). Cedar, earthy, dark spicy blackberry, iodine. Totally resolved and balanced in the mouth, with a remarkable fruit presence for a 12-yr. old. Tannins still there but super soft. Good acids. Just wow. — 12 days ago

Clos des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2017

Koncentrerad och matig CdP. Ganska stor (40%) andel Mourvèdre i denna blend. Mörka bär, grafit, saltlakrits, garrigue. Något volatil. Bredaxlad men smidigt och i riktigt bra balans. Värd 899 kr = på sikt kanske. — 5 days ago
