Leonetti Cellar

Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Agree w notes from @Ira Schwartz—dark plum and a touch of prunes, cocoa powder, some cedar and beautiful tannins. Opened up nicely on day 2. Def needs a min 3-5hr decant. Beautiful wine. — 6 months ago

Peter Michael Winery

Belle Côte Chardonnay 2015

Wine was suggested by the magician himself @Ira Schwartz . We decanted the wine and it was needed. The wine developed well over the course of about 90 mins. At first it was a smooth mineral forward wine but developed some complex fruit flavors such a pear. It paired well with both the short rib lasagna and the sea bass my wife and I had that night. — 2 years ago

Freycinet Vineyard

Tasmania Pinot Noir 2010

Generally regarded as one of Australia's better Pinot Noirs on the basis of its perfumed nose and plummy medium bodied palate with lovely silky tannins. Could identify with @Ira Schwartz note recently of aromas of boot polish. I used to say varnish but I think we are on the same page. Great Pinot. — 6 years ago

@Bob McDonald I generally associate those aromas with aged wines and it sometimes throws me off when I'm tasting blind. I will admit a bias when I get that sensation I usually become pre-disposed to liking the wine.

Napa Valley Red Blend 2018

My understanding is that this is a new wine from a partnership between Jim Schwartz and Heidi Barrett celebrating women in wine. It’s great and the QPR is outstanding. Go grab some before the price gets nutty.
2-3 hour decant in bottle. Medium body, cherry, light currant, a hint of chocolate, grippy/grainy tannins poke out a little past balanced (but I liked this), and clean finish. Great stuff!

@Deborah M right? I got at Total Wine, $34.99 - 15% case price special. They don’t have anymore in MN. I’m trying to get more shipped in. I called the winery, Coup de Foudre, and they had for $39.99. I’d say still great QPR. They don’t have a club model either so you don’t have to sign up. Just order when u want. I like that. And what a cool label / message! Hope you enjoy!

FDR1A Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2004

This goes out to @Ira Schwartz .
This is so full of life. Look at the presentation in the glass. Great nose of mulberries and saddle leather. Mid palate is juicy, powerful and still quite tannic. Some tertiary notes of sage are evident, but still a wonderful experience.

My mistake. The wine we chose was the straight Shiraz.

I will get this right eventually. The Club incorrectly recorded this. It is in fact a Cabernet Shiraz entirely from the Eden Valley.

Yes, @Bob McDonald this is their blend, as you know. The Signature is standout, but I’m very happy with this.

Cuvée Spéciale des Vignettes Côtes de Provence Tibouren Rosé 2015

This is really nice. Even better on the beach with uber fresh clams. Saline, watermelon, rose petals, lime, earthy funk, and loads of ocean air.

@Ira Schwartz good complexity and value in a rose, if you haven't tried this.
