Reynard Cornas Syrah 2007

Allemand nightcap! From the terrific wine list at CUT Vegas. Allemand is truly one of my absolute favorite producers and this 07 Reynard from the master was superb. It’s deep, powerful and has a searing intensity. Ethereal and layered with dark fruit, coal smoke, black olive and violets.

There is superb concentration along with a firm tannic structure that is beginning to soften as it approaches its drinking apogee. It’s exceptionally well balanced with an incredibly long, palate saturating and harmonious finish with vivid energy and an elegant purity. WowWw. ☄️

La Turque Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1991

Birthday bottle—A total knockout this was. It remains youthful still, with serious structure, power and concentration. Ripe black fruit, coal smoke, cigar box, bacon and game. It develops and evolves with air strutting its exceptional balance, detail and otherworldly complexity as the night progressed.

There is a rich, round and velvety texture with fine tannins and tremendous intensity and depth. The transition from midpalate to finish is absolute perfection and it’s 30 second finish can make you weak at the knees. A superb showing, and the 1991 vintage does indeed have plenty of life left to live. Bravo. ✨

Tolpuddle Vineyard

Coal River Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Red fruits - mainly cherry with stemmy overtones, herbaceous with a touch of ginger. A good balance of whole bunch in the ferment. A wonderfully harmonious palate showing the same descriptors from the nose with medium plus intensity. A really good new world Pinot Noir - up there with the best. Will cruise through to 2030 in the cellar. — a month ago

9.1

Plenty or earthy spice, ink, sour cherry, dried herbs, dried blueberry, damp violets, wet peat and prune (though not in a dried out fruit kind of way). There a mineral component too, like cinders or coal but in a very pleasant way.
Palate has a lovely balance and refreshing acidity that keeps everything fresh, stewed but sleep black and blue berry fruits, touch of palms violet and that black and sour cherry and prune fruit coming on the finish.
