Borne Of Fire

Château Rauzan-Gassies

Deuxieme Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Margaux perfume with underneath the red fruits; wood fire, rose petals, iron and cigar box. Palate of summer forest floor, black tea, rosehip, prunes and dried strawberries. Gently drying tannines guide you to a smooth long finish. A lovely wine. — 2 months ago

Kilchoman Distillery

Machir Bay Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

I'd still prefer wine after a dry run, but this whiskey sure did hit a spot. The balance and complexity of the Machir Bay is just undeniable, evident from the score achieved here. Fresh, zesty fruits are starkly juxtoposed with pastry-like nutty, creamy vanillin notes. The peat straddles the line between salinity and camp fire smoke. A rockstar finish that just lingers with sweet, malty flavour and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Needs a little air to sort out some initial aggression, but once that settles, I felt nothing was out of place. Best entry-level Islay for me! 2019 bottling here. — 3 years ago

Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015 is reporting for duty. Balanced with brighter fruit and acid with cassis, plums and pencil elements. One could drink this with a variety of meats, fowl and fish. This wine is locked and loaded and ready to fire. — a year ago

"El Picaro" Toro Tempranillo 2019

On the palate this one absolutely shines with blackberry throughout and so many candy, licorice, and liqueur notes that you'll be picking out brands. This one was really lovely in front of a roaring fire. — 2 years ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Iron and blackberry right off the nose. There is airy clove and black current quality to it that seems to disappear on the tongue. It reminds me of super fine, dark chocolate. The image that comes to mind is a living oak tree— it tastes alive. Pair with pets for a Beauceron, a loyal, intelligent, devoted dog breed that is known for guarding livestock. Sit in front of a fire, drinking this wine while eating some dark chocolate. Or better yet, a hearty filet mignon that you can share with your new Beauceron best friend. — 9 months ago

Château Moulin Haut-Laroque

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

Give it enough air. Pulled the cork three days ago. Kept two third of what was left in the fridge. Now, it shines. Bramble, wood fire, underbrush, chalky tannin. Good effort. — 2 years ago

Smith & Hook

Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 1950

A bold cab, very dry with deep flavors. A 2018 bottle tastes as if it’s been aged for a decade. You will taste and smell pungent aromas of cherry and raspberry. Drink this one by the fire and share with a friend. One of the best quality wines you will find for being widely available — 3 years ago
