Domus Aurea "house of gold" single vineyard cabernet sauvignon out of the upper maipo valley. Brownish tawny color is showing first signs of age. Cedar, dry wood on the nose. Purple fruit and black tea leaves on the palate. There is a sense of freshness and also grippy tannins are looming over this wine. Not sure if this will reach the 96RP it scored but well made nevertheless. 2010 vintage — 3 days ago
This pours a deep rust red. The flavors of raspberries and cherries kind of evolve as the wine moves over your tongue to a spicier flavor. This is one of the best wines I have had in years. Thanks to my brother Mike who had the foresight to buy this years ago. The wine was a perfect complement to the rib eye steaks on our Memorial Day barbecue. — 18 hours ago

This is very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from California. Showing a nice mouthfeel with nice complexity.
Nicely balanced and easy drinking. Good by itself or with food. A good sipping wine to have all by itself on the balcony.

This 4 year old, needs 2 hours to open up properly, remove some acidity, and balanced itself out.
I loved that the alcohol level is medium, but still gives a great mouthfeel.
Tangy, interesting and very enjoyable with lots of coffee notes.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from a Single Vineyard aged for 18 months in New French Oak barrels.

The second surprise of the day came with a virtual tasting with Eric Jensen of #booker wines! My husband sent each of our friends on the call a bottle of Blanc, Harvey and Harriet, and My Favorite Neighbor. This has long been one of my favorite Booker bottles and it was great as always! — 13 days ago
2017 opened 2020. Mint, lavender, and allspice on the nose.￼ Cab fruit on the front, but the tannic structure has the silkiness and medium body of a Rhone-blend. Leather and a refined calcaire at the top of the palate. Soft mineral notes at the end. Some of the reviewers have recommended a long decanting time for this wine. Frankly, I think this one is more interesting 10 or 15 minutes out of the bottle then it is after an hour in the carafe, because a lot of those interesting high notes in this wine dissipate fast. — 16 days ago
