Hermitage Syrah 1990

Shay A

Monthly WTF wine group meet up. Theme was “bring something good”. All wines (minus the bubbles and SB) were tasted blind.

This was opened after the BS was corked. Needed only about 30mins to blow off some funk and then settled in as expected. Not funky, and not as much iron as I would have thought. The fruit is all stewed and muddled, mainly red and black fruits, with red clay, oregano, and chewy fig. Drink up.

Brune et Blonde de Guigal Côte-Rotie Syrah 1978

Elegant overall. Fruits are fading but still some presence of dark berries. Savory meats, wilted violet, beautiful acidity and touch of saline. — 24 days ago

Condrieu Viognier 2017

Oak lovers, this Condrieu is for you. 100% new oak but shockingly well integrated. This is the softest and butteriest of the bunch. Personally I maybe wouldn’t choose it but I can think of a good many of my friends who would love it. And it’s not bad for a change! — a month ago

I appreciate your diplomacy in judging its oakiness. I think I’d enjoy. Cheers 🍷

@Shawn Thompson I do try to keep an open mind about things I know are personal quirks! Give it a try and tell me what you think!

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2003

This bottle was lit. Just at the inflection from extracted to resolved, the complex aromatics foretold an even more delightful rainbow of black tea, bacon fat, dark cassis and tapenade. Buttery smooth. Oaky tannins to take this baby another 10+ years easy. — 7 days ago

Vignes de l'Hospice Saint-Joseph Syrah 2011

Tar and waxy. Good structure but young and not fully evolved. Classic Northern Rhone scents of ripe berries cherry blossoms spice box and damp earth — 13 hours ago

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2015

This is a nice glass of wine by the fountain in the square while devouring my steak. Not overpowering, but a great, dry, charcoaly peppery finish with the red fruit almost in the background. Simplish in that the peppery note may be its only note. But it's a good note! — 7 days ago
