Cabernet Syrah Blend

Domaine des Rosiers

Drevon Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2014

Great bottle of wine from Northern Rhône, just had to get another bottle. A blend of 98% Syrah and 2% Viognier, aromas dark fruits with notes of toast, espresso and cigar box spice. On the palate sweet blackberry and plum flavors with cacao and tobacco notes. Good balance with fine soft tannins, long ending with earthy mineral character. Developing nicely and has lots of room to age. Consistently good. A Fav! — 11 days ago

Domaine de Trévallon

Vin de Pays des Bouches-du-Rhône Red Blend 1994

Trevallon was the first wine that helped me *taste* terroir — it smells and tastes like it feels to be wandering around in Provence.

This wine has gravel, garrigue, herbs de provence, rubarb pie, light black truffle, spices, raisins. I always say this wine tastes like it’s alive. 94 is still full of life and very elegant. RIP Mr Durrbach and thank you for creating Trevallon.

The Barrel Blend Napa Valley Merlot Blend 2017

The 2017 version is stylistically different from the the ‘16. It’s darker and more extracted, with a noticeably tacky feel. Nevertheless, still a great value. Nose has loads of dark cassis and graphite, along with a fair amount of baker’s chocolate. The flavors are intense and low-toned, with dark berry ooze, dark chocolate, and iodiney, graphite-like notes on the clingy finish. Not super complex, but shows a lot of character. Actually seems a lot more Cabernet-like than Merlot-like. — 11 days ago

Meerlust

Rubicon Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

The wine served tonight is the 2016 Meerlust Rubicon Cabernet Sauvignon Blend. This is from the Meerlust Estate Stellenbosch, South Africa. The blend is 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

On the nose there is cherry, strawberry, plum, green bell pepper, herbal notes, vanilla, licorice, minerals and dark rich soil.

On the palate I am getting black cherry, blackberry, strawberry, black currant, licorice, green bell pepper, vanilla, some oak, minerality and soil.

The wine is full bodied with a smooth mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + grippy mouthcoating tannins that leaves you with a ling black fruit mineral finish. Eventhough we are still in the in the midst of fall, there is a feel of winter crisp and clean on ones face. This weekend please stay safe and healthy and let us enjoy family and friends for they are what keep us strong. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Sandlands

Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah 2018

The fruit for this wine come from the Soberanes vineyard which was planted in 2006 but already highly regarded. The vineyard is cared for by the Pisoni and Fanscioni families. Brought to Tasting Group and presented double-blind. The wine pours a deep purple color with a near opaque core. On the nose, the wine is slightly smokey with purple flowers, blue and black fruit, and wood. On the palate, blue fruits, olive brine and black pepper. Medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. The finish is long, dusty and earthy. Only one person called Central Coast Syrah with other guesses ranging from Northern Rhone to Cabernet Sauvignon to Malbec. While I found this to be really enjoyable, I think some time in the cellar will allow this to come together. Only 4 barrels produced. — 20 days ago

Zaca Mesa

Inceptive Estate Vineyard Syrah 2016

I didn’t have the Zaca Mesa Inceptive Syrah; instead I am reviewing the Inceptive Red Wine, which is a red Rhône blend that Delectable apparently does not have in its database. Deep red color, nice fruit and tannin on the nose, bright acids temper the California fruitiness, goes down easy with a long and pleasant finish. Liked it enough to buy it again but didn’t consider it mind blowing. Enjoyed the 2016 vintage in a side by side comparison of homemade eggplant parm vs. Bay Cities Deli’s version. It was a draw. — 10 days ago
