Ledge MCA Cuvée Paso Robles Grenache Blend 2017

Crazy blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Cinsaut, 20% Tannat; 10% Petite Syrah, 5% Syrah and 5% Zinfandel from the James Berry, Adams Ranch and G2 Vineyards.

Consumed over 2 days; Day 1 was dominated by the Grenache with a lifted sweetness of ripe strawberry and raspberry jams, red currants and really cool streak of citrus mid-palate; Day 2 showed more of a darker and savory palate with a heavy dose of Syrah and Tannat; spice and iron with black pepper on the back end; all these grapes played so well together presenting a lush and silky mouthfeel; 15% ABV wasn't even noticeable.

Turley

Whitney Tennessee Alexander Valley Zinfandel 2017

Plum, floral, tobacco, boysenberry. Low, medium tannins. A good turley for one that is worried about getting over the top. — a month ago

Reckoning Merlot Blend 2015

Deep, blackish garnet purple. Abundant nose and mouth-filling palate of black plum, graphite, blackberry, and other juicy dark fruits. Full body. Medium plus, velvety tannins. Medium plus acidity. The Washington bridge between California and Bordeaux is quite clear in this Merlot-based Bordeaux style blend. Juicy fruit meets earth and structure like no other place can deliver. Fine Yankee beef preparations are in order: pot roast, prime rib, or New York strip would all fare well as would your favorite grill fare. Drink now through 2025 for potential development (but it should hold on much longer). — 2 months ago

Château Fonplégade

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

2014 vintage. This historical estate with great terroir surrounded by famous neighbours like Angélus, Ausone, Pavie etc. is going from strength to strength after it was bought by Denise and Stephen Adams (also owners of Château L'Enclos in Pomerol and ADAMVS in Napa Valley). 2014 vintage. 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Biodynamically farmed (since 2009, certification in 2020). Intriguing attractive nose with an amazing minerality, intertwined with cassis and a hint of truffle. In the mouth it is initially a bit severe, if classy. I would recommend decanting or taste it over several hours. After a few hours the fruit shines through compensating the tight tannic structure and the acidity. Built to age, I feel this will deserve a higher score in 5 or 6 years. It's a very classic restrained wine that definitely has an understated class. Nice value at under 50 euros if you like this style. — a month ago
