La Bégude des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2014

Higher Mourvèdre content in ‘14. Tar, red licorice, and loads of floral notes. Pretty tasty. This needed about one hour to open up. — a month ago

Big Grenache fruit still, rich and ripe, has started to fade just a bit after 45 minutes open, really quite a fine 1990 CdP!! — 24 days ago

Wow, I have never tasted a wine that gained so much quality in 5+ years. Perfect nose, complex, mouth watering...every promise is forfilled when tasting this aristocratic wine. Game meat, blood, cherries, violets. Juicy wine, herbal...great stuff! — 2 months ago

Clos des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2015

By this point in the night, I wasn’t taking detailed notes. Ripe and concentrated, cherries and sweet spice. Aromas weren’t well developed on PnP, but a nice wrap-up to a Grenache-focused night. — 5 days ago

Comtes de Neipperg St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

After an hour of decant, this approachable 08 St Emilion was open for business with opulent nose of ripe plum, cedar, dark chocolate, forest floor, and hint of anise. On the palate it showed a bit more berry fruits juiciness and some peppery note. Quite intense acidity, but tannins were round and sweet. — 19 days ago

Vieux Papes

Red Rhone Blend

Whole Foods, $6

Some cheap wine is cheap because it's bad, some are cheap because they are simple and straightforward. This is the latter. Light in color and body, simple fruit forward nose and taste with very little tannins. Not too acidic, perfectly in the middle of dry and sweet. No off flavors or funky after tastes. This is just a plain, easy to drink fruit forward wine that is a great value for the price. My favorite ~$5 wine I've had thus far.
