Smooth, Wood, dark red fruit. Great, opens fast — 10 days ago
Very good value. Smooth at open and gets slightly tannic on the finish. Great every day type wine at this price. — a month ago
A walk down memory lane in the year of 2012 where we stayed at the beautiful Chateau Baron. Opening a classic Pauillac Bordeaux. Dark purple ruby red color. A black fruit forest floor with a cedar and funky barnyard nose. Has an initial blackberry tar taste lingering of graphite and pencil lead and long finish.; drinks young and can definitely go another 20 years. Decanted about 90 mins. Enjoying with bruschetta and toasted sliced baguette with a two year aged in a cave Gouda cheese. A worthy initial tasting of this great Bordeaux! — 16 days ago
Very nice Rioja! Wonderful nose of dusty violets, rose petals and blueberry. Full and round pallet of dark red fruits, vanilla and caramel. Soft tannins and long finish. Great. QPR. — 21 days ago
Dinner with some dear friends at Lucio’s BYOB. Two couples, each couple brought 3 bottles.
Another one of my contributions. Didn’t take nearly as long to open up as the last bottle of this I had 👌🏻 paired nicely with short rib & risotto. — 7 days ago

Really nice white from Pembertons — 14 days ago
After a long afternoon in the yard of cleaning up and replenishing flowers, for the dog days of summer, it’s just Sofia, me and the Baron before BBQ’ing.
Still absolutely one of the best Champagnes at $24.99 and slightly higher price points.
Bright lemon, lemon curd, lime zest, pineapple, bruised pear, cream soda, notes of wood, brioche, light herbaceous notes, volcanic minerals, sea shells & spray, jasmine, spring flowers, Juniper, very lively acidity and a delicious, well polished finish.
As a digestif after a night of nice red wine; golden apple, golden raisins, pineapple, bruised Bosc pear, Juniper, brioche, cream soda, touch of caramel, gray volcanic minerals, sea spray & fossils.
If you start with Champagne, save some for the end of the night after red wine. You’ll be glad you did. Changes the profile, intensity and pleasure dramatically. Night & day!!!
