Black Saint Peter

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend

Black currant and plum amidst loamy earth and wet espresso grounds, light black peppering and river rock. Violets. Young! Grainy tannins, dried lavender and violet, dried savory, cedar, maduro tobacco, bing cherries, black cherry skin, and underripe blackberries and black currants. Do yourself a favor and age this vintage.

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Wow, showed stunningly already. Lovely black and blue fruited boquet, with soft herbs. Fantastic acidity, lovely density mirroring the nose. Soft tannin on the supple finish. Drinking very well if fairly primary right now. — 20 days ago

Stonewell Barossa Shiraz 2006

See 2 previous notes from 2019 and 2021. Dusty notes of plum and red and black berries. Can still taste remnants of the oak which had largely integrated. Coffee grounds. Rich and medium to full bodied on the palate. Notes of chocolate and blackberry. This wine screams old vine Barossa Shiraz which is what it is. I will try and leave the last one for a year or 2 or 3. — 20 days ago

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Delectable Wine

This bottle of 1982 Gruaud-Larose came direct from the château cellars. It is just pure joy on the nose with fabulous scents of black fruit, hung game (less so than previous bottles), clove and a faint aroma of a stately home. It manages to offer both ample fruit and life-affirming complexity. The palate has aged little since I last tasted it; there's more red fruit here, with freshly rolled tobacco, cedar and a touch more spiciness on the finish than previous tastings, with a sweet yet structured finish. This may well represent the finest bottle that I have encountered. (Neal Martin, Vinous, January 2023) — 8 days ago

Pierre Gonon

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2019

A buddy of mine and I dropped into one of my favorite little cafes in Omaha to get a bite and share a bottle. We grabbed a table and I scampered off to select something from the wall. As I walked over to the Rhone section, I began to scan the labels and about fell over when I saw three bottles of Gonon low-key just chillin…priced under $70. At this point, there was no question what we would be drinking tonight.

Popped and poured; no formal notes. I fully knew this was going to be somewhat considered infanticide but how was I going to pass this opportunity up? The nose is classic Northern Rhone with olives, black pepper, bacon fat and gorgeous blue and red fruits. The tannins are medium+; the acid matches. And the texture? Well, she thiccc but there is a sexy confidence that is enormously becoming. Finish is long and super satisfying. Fun to try young but I expect this to be a very lovely bottle for many years to come. Drink now with some patience (and an open mind) or through 2034 with ease. Oh…and you best believe we took the other two bottles home with us.
