Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

🍇Grenache 80%, Syrah 10%, Mourvèdre 6%, Cinsault 4%.

🍷Tasted in a restaurant right after opening with Vietnamese-Style beef.

The nose is gorgeous and express itself very easily, aromas of red fruits and blueberry with garrigue note and a hint of fresh smokiness. The structure is well balanced between great acidity and precise, smooth tannins. Finish is on deep red fruits. Safe bet! 👌🏻

Domaine Georges Vernay

Blonde du Seigneur Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2015

So floored by the grace and level of detail this has. The acid is keen and runs a taut line from front to back, I hate to say it (because it’s not entirely true) but this has a more modest vintage character than that of most 2015s. Must be producer because I find the Vernay reds refined and charming in the best sense. Ripe red berry fruits, crushed black cherry, insane amounts of crushed granite. This is backed by beautiful floral and licorice aromas, it pumps garrigue without a moment of the peppercorn and meaty goodness being far behind. The tannins have some ripeness to them. Oak is a little pronounced at first, but suits the wine well upon opening. — 19 days ago

Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Release is $135.00, best QPR of any wine TRB makes IMO
Down to 2 bottles after tonight.
RIVERS MARIE notes,
New to our lineup but certainly not new to the legacy of Napa, we are excited to be starting this relationship in such a great vintage. This is one of those wines we knew was destined for greatness when we pressed it. It was intensely aromatic in fermenter and colored up quickly. The palate held quite a bit in reserve while first in barrel taking on more of a linear profile. The last six months in barrel, the wine grew broader, opening up to grilled meats, garrigue, underbrush and blueberries. There is an exotic floral note on the nose that hints at the vineyard's base of Howell Mountain location. Framing acidity keeps the wine from ever growing tiresome despite its density. There's nothing that tastes quite like this storied site and we hop to continue to preserve and further the legacy of what Herb and Jennifer Lamb have created here. 160 cases produced. | Rivers-Marie

Domaine Charvin

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2017

It’s Rhone night! WOTN. Layers upon layers of complex black fruit, Moroccan spice, garrigue, and minerality. Evolves with each sip. The purity of fruit is amazing as no oak is used. Phenemonal and ageworthy. Cellar this! 2017 vintage on March 21, 2020 — 18 days ago

Domaine de la Colline Saint-Jean

Vieilles Vignes Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend 2016

Delectable Wine
9.3

Opaque ruby. Highly expressive, mineral- and spice-accented boysenberry, cherry and floral scents show fine delineation and a subtle touch of garrigue. Silky in texture and impressively concentrated, offering intense red and blue fruit preserve and exotic spice flavors and a sexy hint of candied lavender. Fine-grained tannins give gentle grip to a very long, focused finish that leaves floral and cherry preserve notes behind. All concrete. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)
