Excellent expression of Chateauneuf without breaking the budget. — 12 days ago
Powerful and Rich. Ripe berries and aged meat on the nose. A Syrup, spice box on the finish. At almost 30 yrs old this wine still rocks — 20 days ago
Enticing nose of new oak and honeysuckle. Peach, apricot, mead-reminiscent honey on the palate. Mild cream from the oak. Nice example of Northern Rhone Marsanne. Would pair beautifully with the richness of a Miso Black Cod.
Update: on my third tasting of this wine, I discovered definite notes of green olive and pith on the palate. This is fantastic wine that is a joy to revisit again and again. I plan on revisiting this wine in the very near future. — a month ago
Lots of raspberry, almost a cooked raspberry, plum, some black tea notes. Some light herbal and floral notes I can’t completely place. Nice acidity and soft tannins. I like it. — a month ago
Another Wednesday Wine Committee for the books, this one in honor of a former WWC member, with the wines donates from his cellar by his family. A wonderful tribute. Wines tasted blind as usual.
Shame on me for missing this. As soon as I tasted it I said “I’ve had this before” but couldn’t place it correctly. I guessed Alsatian Riesling, but after time in the glass, there was no doubt this was Viognier. Floral, low acidity, mint, and a quick peach finish. — 24 days ago
