Château Gloria

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Big cherry pie/cherry pop-tart nose plus a pinch of raspberry and mint. Light-medium/medium body. Baking chocolate, cocoa powder, kirsch liqueur, rhubarb, allspice, dust and vanilla bean. Oak slightly showy in the frontal palate but then dissipates in a shimmering dissolve. Tannins, while present, are not exactly what I’d call firm. Verry drinkable now and for the next dozen years or so. Past that? Could be drinking the skeleton. — a month ago

Carneros Cuvée Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir

Pale gold. Delicate, sweet smell, honey and pear. Pear and citrus taste...and maybe honeysuckle. Very light and crisp. I tried this at Gloria Ferrer a few years ago and it's still just a lovely as it was then. — 4 months ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

And so it happened that after 30 years or so since I started to fel in love with wine the wife says: “I think it’s time I learned more about wine”. Even when you thought live is not longer capable to surprise you, it does🤣 so after finishing a bottle of Gloria ‘06 we opened a bottle Pontet Canet ‘06 and the education started. And with a little help of the internet we kicked of, meanwhile swapped the full bottle into a empty bottle 🤪 so now we find another reason to drink some wine, let there be rock!! — 3 months ago

Dijon Clone Selection Carneros Pinot Noir 2014

We had the 2014 Vintage on 8/6-7/21. Still had tannin. Softened the wine with the aerator. Nice tastes of bing cherry, blackberry and and earthy minerality. A New World wine but trying for Burgundian. Still very good. — 3 months ago
