Clos Apalta Le Petit Clos Red Blend 2017

The second wine from this Chilean producer. Big but not colossal. Nicely balanced. Medium acidity. Bordeaux style. I liked but didn’t love this...a teaser. — 10 days ago

J.M Raynal La Passion d'Une Vie Cuvée Limitée 2017

One of the beautiful value for money that we like to rediscover. A fairly straight syrah, "natural", the fruit is honoured with the typical notes of the grape variety in a over-vitamin version, Morocco's sun obliges. A slight woody note testifies to the beautiful mastery of winemaking and brings a distinguished touch to the whole. As often with this type of wine, you have to wait 3/5 years of ageing for the alcoholic ardour to act. 2017 just finds its equilbre, and could still win with 2 years of cellar

Un des beaux rapport/prix plaisir qu’on aime redécouvrir. Une syrah assez droite et « nature » le fruit est à l’honneur avec les notes typique du cépage dans une version sur-vitaminée, soleil du Maroc oblige. Une légère note boisée témoigne de la belle maîtrise de vinification et apporte une touche distingué à l’ensemble. Comme souvent avec ce type de vin, il faut attendre 3/5 ans de garde pour que l’ardeur alcooleuse s’assagisse. 2017 trouve juste son equilbre, et pourrait encore gagner avec 2 ans de cave

Domaine du Tunnel (Stéphane Robert)

Cuvée Prestige St. Péray White Rhône Blend 2016

This is simply fantastic at this stage. Lychee and pine apple on the nose. Incredibly fresh and vibrant on the palette. Tropical fruits with a lingering zeste of lemon as aftertaste. This went through a little dormant phase a while back but only to emerge with much more complexity and pleasure. — 9 days ago

Les Brunes Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Dense, broody & chewy, with stewed blueberry & blackcurrant, a touch of cassis with a backdrop of mocha & tobacco leaf. This has some power but also surprising freshness. And the quality of tannins is great - big yet juicy & finely grained.
Great with a nice piece from the grill.

Robert Mondavi Winery

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Now that I am officially finished working as a RT; and have had both vaccines; my family is allowing me back in...to visit. This wine was my Christmas Gift from my brother. When I told him that I would probably wait 5 yrs. to consume; his face fell. I could tell that he was excited that I try the wine! 🤗 Of course! Although this wine is young! Mondavi! Such balance...swirling for 90 seconds. Tight but the elements for a very nice wine are standing up proudly!
I need to find another 2016..and open in 5 years! My score is low..considering potential!

Surprise of the night. Cherry and raspberry with fresh potting soil, sandalwood and some herbs. Think I’m a fan of whole cluster fermentation. From Wine Merchants Best of the West 4.10.21. — 2 days ago

Vintner's Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Rosé 2020

Vibrant deep pink. Juicy strawberry and red cherry on the nose and the medium bodied palate. Firm, mouth-watering acidity and… oh let’s cut the pretense! This is freaking great. Full of fruit, like an Anjou, but dry and refreshing. I honestly can’t think of a better all-around rosé. You like ‘em fruity? This is your wine! You like ‘em crisp? This is your wine! But a bottle and drink it now with a salade Niçoise or soft cheese or just alone as a sipper. — 21 days ago
