Château Berliquet

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Well, here it is the first weekend December and a finish to another year is upon us. I have opened the 2010 Château Berliquet to start the last month of the year off right. The blend to this Right Bank Bordeaux is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the nose there is luscious black fruit, black cherry, sweet black plum, blackberry, black currant, herbal notes, clove and sweet silky chocolate.

The palate reveals the same luscious black fruit, black cherry, blackberry, black currant, black plum, green bell pepper, clove and a soft minerality.

This wine is well balanced and well structured with medium to full bodied with fine medium + acidity, medium + smooth firm drying tannin and the finish is long with continued dark fruit to the end. Have a great weekend and a safe and to 2017. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

After a long day of golf, enjoying this with pizza and the Big Ten Championship. Who do I want to see lose? 😂 Loads of Black cherry and really, really dark color in the glass. Needed a decant but was enjoyable nonetheless. IMO This has at least another decade - or two- ahead of it. — 8 days ago

Château Latour

Le Pauillac de Chateau Latour Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Robert Cunningham

From 6L bottles. Full, Rich tannic structure with nice classic Latour character. Unfortunately outshone by the 6L 1989 Chateau Margaux, which was just more elegant and balanced and perfumed — 5 days ago

Château Golan

Geshem Dry Rose

Beautiful color of golden salmon.

Sweet nose of peaches, cherries, sweet strawberries, citrus, lemons, apples, spices and white pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with strawberries, raspberries, citrus, lemons, green apples, grapefruits, minerals, spices and white pepper.

Nice soft finish.

This is probably the best Israeli Rosé I've had so far. Easy drinking and very balanced with mild complexity.

Very enjoyable by itself or with food. A good pool wine, refreshing and tasty. Not too bitter, not too tart, it's just there. Delicious.

I paired it with a nice cheese plate.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2012


Very tasty after the first sip. Nice fruit on the front side. Ripe dark cherries. Still has lots of tannins. Deep color. Looks like this Rams Eagles game is going to be a shootout. — 8 hours ago

Château Cantebau

Château la Louvière Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend 2010

Definitely on the right track in its aging process! This is a wine wasted on food and pairings. It is one to pour on a sunny, cool, and breezy day - like a day in harvest season in Bordeaux. Classic white Bordeaux. Not too much oak influence, balanced and crisp acidity, slight under ripe fruits. Aromas similar to Pouilly-Fume, who also would argue Sauvignon Blanc is it's native grape. Flint, lemon zest, white peach, granny apple skin, pine resin, under ripe grapefruit, creme brulee, roasted ginger, lemongrass, golden pears. 2010 will age for at least 15 more years, and yet it is just so delicious right now. Get 5, drink 2 or 3, and keep some for as long as you can. — 12 days ago

Château Pajzos

Esszencia Tokaji 1999

Dark. The texture of motor oil. Incredibly intense with bracing acidity but a deep sweet palate of orange oil, and rounded Madeira. This is like an eiswein that has been boiled down to an even more intense thing. Fascinating stuff. So singular — 2 days ago

Château Margaux

Margaux Du Chateau Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Purchased on futures in 2000 for $60 btl. Wanted to try tonight so I cracked open the OWC. With an hour decant this was elegant, floral & lighter in weight with notes of blackberry, cassis, cedar, leather, truffle, graphite, tobacco & violets. — 8 days ago
