Les Cailles Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Brooding dark gnarly fruit with herbal notes, green pepper. More savory than sweet. Delicious. — a month ago

Weingut Robert Weil

Kiedricher Gräfenberg Erstes Gewächs Trocken Riesling 2011

Pale to mid Lemon in colour - some petillance on side of glass. Lovely white floral notes with a touch of jasmine. Palate is intense and quite expansive for a dry Riesling (13.5% ABV). I haven’t had many wines from Robert Weil but it has the quality you expect for the price. On the palate some stone fruit with plenty of mineral and a generosity of flavour. Much more fleshy and aromatic than you get with top quality Australian Rieslings. Possibly at its peak. — 14 days ago

@Bob McDonald But you'd surely love to buy the current vintage for the same price as the '11 on release. I've enjoyed a few Weil in my days, they are magical.

@Severn Goodwin Absolutely. Not sure exactly when I bought this but it cost $108 AUD. Not on release.

Not too bad, at the current conversion of USD to AUD, about $73 on my side of the Pond. I'd still pay that.

Reserve Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 1985

This was one of the best 30+yr old Mondavi Reserves I’ve had. In good company with the other old Napa cabs on the table, and while it wasn’t showing as much fruit as the others may have, this was more complex and balanced. Definitely herbal (possibly oregano? Mark mentioned sage too and I agree), but it played nicely with the underripe black cherries, plum and dates. Wonderful acidity and structure. — 19 days ago

Oakville Cabernet Franc 2015

Deep garnet color with a wide brim and dark purple undertones. Spice throughout, especially on the nose along with violets, dusty blackberries, and a good bit of oak. This isn’t trying to be French. At all. Proudly waving the Napa Valley flag, this is a big boy. As expected, higher alcohol than his Gallic cousins and fuller bodied. High acidity with smooth tannins and very tight at this stage, could probably do with a few more years in the bottle. Much less herbaceous than I expected but with some really beautiful red fruit on the palate. Plums, red cherries, and cassis is supplemented by plenty of oak, spice, and Newports. Some herbal notes come in to play on the medium long finish. This wine was more fun than I expected. — 5 days ago

Robert Young Estate Winery

Alexander Valley Malbec 2015

Nose of purple fruit and herb. Entry is purple bramble. Not jammy in any way. Good sharp acidity on the front. Goes to more of a underripe fig on the middle. Finish has some stiff oak astringency. I think it will take a few years to integrate. Still thinking this one is a couple of years away from the top of the hill so hold this one if you have it. If I were to do this differently, I would probably have decanted for 2 hours before serving. — 2 days ago

Surprenamment accessible. Le vin est fruité et épicé avec une touche de terre. Bien balancé et une bonne acidité vont le faire vieillir en beauté. — 2 months ago
