Accord Confidential Chenin Blanc 2010

Vintage 2010 / Tasted my last bottle of this Chenin Blanc four years ago... no signs of aging, amazingly fresh, vivid and charming. This ‘tendre’ has some wood-ripening. Beautiful smell of jasmin and vanilla. Perfect harmony and many many years to go. I love it. / Paired with a ‘Brabants worstenbroodje’ a regional specialty, a saucage bun. — 6 days ago

Your worstenbroodje looks a bit dark @Peter van den Besselaar did you set the oven temp too high 😂

This was fun to watch evolve. After about an hour, it really started blossoming. Surprisingly sweet and cold fruit on the nose...red, blue and black fruit spectrum. Touch of olive tapenade at first, spiced peppers showing cab franc but the Cabernet Sauvignon powers through before turning too herbal. Very plush on the palate...almost an American oak like palate with some coconut. Cherry liqueur, mixed berry pie and nutmeg. Light and nimble toward the finish. Complex. Really good right now.

Horsepower Vineyards

Sur Echalas Vineyard Grenache

The 2013 ‘Sur Echalas Vineyard’ Grenache is simply captivating now at the six year mark. An aromatic melange of teaberry with wet stone, pomegranate seed, Umami and iodine greet you, showing some thrilling range right upon opening. The palate shows off its silky texture that gently glides across the mid-palate. Ripe red fruits dance with shades of blood orange zest, cigar ash,, damp earth and stony tones that all collect momentum on the palate. Thrilling at this stage in its development, the 2013 Horsepower ‘Sur Exhalas Vineyard’ Grenache will provide drinking enjoyment for at least another seven to ten years.
