The Rare Barrel

Big Six

3 Months Aged Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel 2019

Wasn’t sure what to expect. First taste after immediately opening was oddly alcoholic and tasted a bit like the ocean. After sitting the wine became complex and had notes of caramel, vanilla and fruit. Got better as it sat so best to open and let it air before serving. — 20 days ago

Hill Family Estate

The Barrel Blend Napa Valley Merlot Blend 2017

Last bottle of this, and it’s always a great value. Even though it’s a Merlot-heavy blend, a bit of what seems like nice Cabernet character, with dark berries and cassis, cedar comes through. Great balance. Tannins very soft. I always buy too little of this. — 2 months ago

Golden straw coloration. On the nose, apple, pear and yeast, and a tad of lemon/citrus. On the palate, lemon/citrus, yeast, long finish. — a month ago

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin

Rare Vintage Rosé Champagne

Starting with bubbles today on this hot summer night at just below a 100 F. Very refreshing, prickly acidity edged by slight hints of peach and cantaloupe and hazelnuts … I think. Not a connoisseur on Champagne. But I liked it!! Very balanced and easy to drink. — 2 months ago

Barrel X Saar Riesling 2014


Last of three bottles for Leila’s friends Deb/Evan who have such EtOH tolerance and desire! 7/11/22 late after dinner drink. A classic Riesling nose of slate petro white fruits goodness with complex acidic balance and long finish. Too bad I only had a taste. May be only bottle. — 3 months ago
