Black Hole

Johnnie Walker

Double Black Blended Scotch Whiskey

In the JW lineup, this is now my entry point. I've always found the Red a little harsh (I enjoy everything neat), and maybe it's my advancing age, while I used to really like Black but now think it's too smokey. Palate evolution I guess...

Mellow peat, perfect barrel char, light honey, distant campfire smoke. Perfect just by itself and a cold whiskey stone.

Leorie Vineyard Cabernet Franc Merlot 2015

High ratings for the region. Drinking beautifully now, could lay down another 5-10 years to calm down the sharp edges a bit further. Velveteen, good balance of fruit and acid. Soft tannins. 65% Merlot, 35% Cab Franc. — 9 hours ago

Domaine Bachelet

Vieilles Vignes Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

This is really dense and intense (closed) on the nose. There’s hints of black pepper and dark meaty fruit. Not much is escaping the black hole of 05 youth in the nose but the palate is so poised and beatify balanced. Still very tight and contained but wow- this has a future. — 24 days ago

Black List XVIII Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

Privileged and honored by our friends Elliot and Stephen (and wives), my wife and I were able to share a lovely dinner along this superb bottle. Notes of dark berries and cedar. Amarena , plum and earth on the palate this wine gives a delightful finish with perfect acidity. It fitted perfectly with our dinner and lovely company. — 5 days ago

Black Saint Peter

Old Vine Zinfandel 2017

It smells like an old boot but has a very unique and tasty flavor. One of my favorite reds so far with any Italian dish or enjoyable by itself. A true delight. — 8 days ago
