La Croix de la Perrière Côte-Rôtie Red Rhone Blend 2016

After a « simple » natural wine as an aperitif that seems simpler, we tell ourselves that this wine is not as remarkable as the label promises. The aromatic range is interesting, unfolding as you taste it. Typical notes of noble Syrah: violet, black fruits, pepper, blackcurrant, smoked larded notes. The volume on the palate is medium bodied and the finish might have needed a few more hours of aeration, as can be seen from the difference between the 1st and 3rd glass. Good but not wow

Après un vin nature à l’apéro à priori plus simple, on se dit que ce vin n’est pas aussi remarquable que l’étiquette le promet. La gamme aromatique est intéressante, se déployant à mesure de la dégustation. Notes typique de la Syrah noble: violette, fruits noirs, poivre, cassis, notes lardées fumées. Le volume en bouche est moyen corsé et la finale aurait peut-être eu besoin de quelques heures supplémentaires d’aération, en atteste la différence entre le 1er et le 3ème verre. Bien mais pas wow

Quinta do Poço do Lobo Cabernet Sauvignon 1994

This is amazing! Really changed over an hour of air. Actually tasted more fresh. Cherries, leather, dried herbs, flowers, tons of pepper, plums. I’d love to try this in a blind tasting of aged Napa and Bordeaux. Right now I’m impressed for 49 dollars. — 11 days ago

Still beautiful.
Open for business, thick and generous. Warm and spicy, apricot-tangerine cobbler, tropical flowers, vanilla and saffron.
Terrific!

Porta dos Cavaleiros Dão Red Blend 1985

Other than vintage port, this is the only Portuguese wine in the cellar. First encountered in a small wine shop in Vancouver BC about 5 or 6 years ago. I’m so happy to enjoy it again. Wonderfully mature, with a bouquet of forest floor, saddle leather, coffee... you get it. The wine is just where I want it to be. Low alcohol 12.5 percent or so. It’s just what happens when the winemaker builds a well defined structure that allows for graceful aging of an adolescent wine into something wizened, full of character. — 10 days ago
