Clos des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 1998

Alright here we go. This was smashing with broiled flatirons. Rustic, soulful, mature and drinking great. Soaked prune, date, roasted red fruit. Its very meaty, grilled beef, leather, brandy, cloves, licorice, Ceylon cinnamon, allspice, some cooling elements there. Fine grained tannin, complex on its departure, great length. — 12 days ago

"La Mordorée" Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2012

More advanced for his age than I anticipated - But beautiful game leather pepper and space elements all coming together with some partial new oak — 24 days ago

Viña Albali Reserva Valdepeñas 2015

Chocolate cherry cake and rich vanilla on the nose invite you into this lovely Riserva. On the palate, lovely woody tannins mix with a ripe cherry acidity and a vanilla dessert sweetness, but leans on the side of refreshing rather than overwhelming. The finish is a pleasant melding of all the elements. Lovely. — 9 days ago

Really enjoyed this. Moroccan Syrah. Not super complex, but very light and accessible. Elements of plums with some light red currant as well. — 11 days ago

Very cool. Actually not sure I’ve ever seen a Moroccan wine!

Il Colle (Carli)

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2017

2021/1/8-9 with leftover cotechino, etc. I adore Il Colle’a Brunello, and the Rosso is just as good for its appellation. There’s an abundance of cherries with woodsy and spicy elements on top. It’s open and generous, with hints of complexity too. — 19 days ago

Château La Rame

Sainte-Croix-du-Mont Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

Needed to buy another bottle at the local shop for a discount so picked this up. Wow!! What a find! Awesome, well balanced nose with peach, oak, and even smoke, dirt, and red elements. Bright and smooth! Great aperitif as it isn’t sweet enough to be a dessert wine. Loved it! — 11 days ago

Syrah du Lieu-dit Les Bernunes 2018

9.4

Nose is pretty grapey to start off. Also some lovely granite tones. Deep, pure though. Blind I’d never say Syrah. Gamay. But dark gamay. Really floral, lifted and haunting. Now some dark berry Syrah fruit comes out. Very high toned. Palate is concentrated and fresh. Lovey elegant tannins filled with sweet and dark fruits. Nose also has some interesting herbal elements. Palate is getting really tasty now. Pure and deep with fantastic structure and grip. — 16 days ago
