Sous la Tour Pinot Noir 2016

Mid-week wine ... A Pinot Arbois. A nose with red berries, farm smell with hints of liquorice. In the mouth easy to know it is pinot not bad on the attack but the middle lacks concentration and the final is medium lenght and somewhat drying. You have to like the natural side in the wine to appreciate. Glad to have tried finally but the conclusion is not for me. I like my pinot "clean" without Brett! — 5 days ago

Château la Tour de l'Évêque

Vendanges Manuelles Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah Blend 2014

Dark ruby garnet in the glass. Abundant nose of dark leather and dark fruit. Echoed on the medium-bodied palate with white flowers(!) and red currant. Medium acidity and fine, medium plus tannins wrap it all up. A wonderful Provençal expression of the classic Syrah-Cabernet (Sauvignon) blend. That will compliment a wide range of “red wine” foods. It’s just as interesting and complex as Regine Sumiere’s iconic Provence rosè, only taken to red level. Enjoy with medium to hard cheeses, beef, game, root veggies, or even darker fruit with balsamic. Drink now through 2024. — 11 days ago

Estate Bottled Hildegard White Blend 2016

This is a continuation of the wines that were at the fourth Friday gathering in Fort Worth, TX. As @Shay A mentioned there were too many wines to taste them all. Here are a few other great ones that Shay did not post.

Not sure who brought this wine but I enjoyed it.

A little strange. I think this one is worthy of a 90. Maybe. Being a little bit generous I think. Lemon rind. Had a kind of strange milk curd character to it. The palate was for the most part "astringently tropical" but was a bit thin overall. I think this one would have gone a little better with a fondue or a fruit sorbet but still a bit unilateral. Could change in 1-2 years perhaps.

@David L absolutely. I have had a few wines from them before, and they have all been a little bit better than this one. I almost wonder if there was a little bit of taint going on. The one thing that cannot be argued is that their QPR is rather good.
