Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc Paso Robles Roussanne Blend 2016

The 2017 ‘Espirit Blanc de Tablas’ is a downright heavyhitter, primarily comprised of Roussanne (75%) with smaller portions Grenache Blanc and Picpoul Blanc. Good richness marks the nose with toasted Challah bread, Pazzaz apple, kiwi and apricot undertones. The palate is both refreshing and highly gratifying, revealing a wonderful fatness and viscosity. Seamless throughout, lychee, starfruit, honeydew melon and wet stone flavors with kumquat tones all collide on the palate. The extremely long, cream and mineral-driven finish completes this simply stunning Rhone style white wine. While this is marvelous now, this has both the stuffing and acidity to cellar well over the next fifteen to twenty years. Drink 2019-2035- 95 — 3 days ago

Acidic and surprisingly earthy (though maybe not since its unfiltered). Getting notes of tart cherry. — 8 days ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend

Beautiful evolution in the glass. Still very much alive and kicking. 2003 was hot but this has mellowed. Dried fruits, leather, garrigue, round and lush with perhaps just a bit too much acid, but quite good with a finish that keeps going. — 9 days ago

January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.

This was heavily oxidized on the glass. More brown than red. The wine itself seemed to be fine, but came across really tired. Didn’t get any black pepper here, nor spicy red fruit. Mainly clay, old cherry and some tobacco. I guessed burgundy.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2016

A fantastic display of a Rhône Blanc and an exceptional showing early on from the ‘16 vintage. Full bodied and rich with an underlying freshness, and elegance. White flowers, tropical fruits, spices and a touch of hazelnut with a lingering finish. — 14 days ago

Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

A stunning bottle, one of my all time favorites! Beautiful golden colors, aromas of oak, peach, and vanilla. Full-bodied mineral flavors. A real treat!! Allow it to warm and breathe for 20 minutes to really open up, and enjoy! — 22 days ago

Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012

6/7 years old is the youngest I’ve had Beaucastel. For me, I prefer 10-15 years old. Currently it’s lush and intense, bursting with black fruits, maraschino sweetness, and spicy licorice. It stains the glass and lingers on the palette, lasting a bit too long if you’re having it with a meal. This is a drinker’s wine today. — a month ago
