Klein Constantia

Brut Méthode Cap Classique Chardonnay 2014

9.1

Our first stop on the Cape was the historic Estate of Klein Constantia, established in 1685 by the VOC Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel. The Dutch established the Western Cape wine growing region in the 1600’s as a rest and resupply stop for their trading ships sailing around Africa enroute to their many trade partners of the Far East etc..

The nose reveals; slightly bruised apple & pear, white citrus, notes of apple cider, white peach, cream, vanillin notes, nice, soft chalkiness, gentle minerality with spring flowers and yellow lilies.

The body is quite light, lively, tightly beaded, rich creamy texture, slightly bruised apple & pear, white citrus, notes of apple cider, white peach, cream, vanillin & ginger notes, nice, soft chalkiness, heavier minerality one palate than the nose with spring flowers and lilies.

Photos of, their Estate vines with the majestic mountains painting the background, A-frames for riddling the new vintage of this sparkling wine, the grounds surrounding the Estate and their tasting bar.

Alexana

Revana Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir 2014

9.2

Had the Revana cab, figured I should try the Alexana Pinot. This Pinot was perfect on this Texas patio evening. Very refreshing. Without a doubt, this needs to be served slightly more chilled than others. Gorgeous red fruits splash the tongue...strawberry, cloudberries, lingonberries (all those cold weather fruits). Great integration of funky earthiness and herbs. Very small Spice on the backend, but not peppery. Overshadowed by the EnRoute, but a wine I'd absolutely buy again. Happy birthday @Cody Cotten ! — 3 years ago

Hop Kiln Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Great Pinot aroma, perfectly mild appearance like a Pinot should be. Would go well with Kobe and Wagu beef or mild spiced rack of lamb — 2 years ago

Amber Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Very dark ruby for a Pinot. Cherry, oak, vanilla, strawberry nose. Big fruit but very smooth and not too jammy. Long vanilla close. Very nice this young. — 6 months ago

Château Lynch-Moussas

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

8.9

Served in-flight on Emirates enroute to Cape Town with Braised Veal Cheeks.

The nose shows; blackberries, black plum skin, dark cherries, black raspberries, blueberries, slight dark fruit liqueur notes, dark spice, clove, hints of nutmeg, black tea, black licorice notes, whiff of brown sugar/molasses, dark, rich soil, leather, a fair amount of cedar, vanilla, dry top soil, dry stones, limestone minerals, crushed rocks with dark withering flowers.

The body is full and tannins just starting to soften nicely...almost velvety. The structure, tension, length and balance are starting to knit together nicely. There is still some astringency to it. I’d cellar it another five years. Fruits of; blackberries, black plum skin, dark cherries, black raspberries, stewed strawberries & blueberries. Slight dark fruit liqueur notes, dark spice, clove, hints of nutmeg, black tea, touch of black licorice, notes of brown sugar/molasses, dark, rich soil, leather, a fair amount of cedar, vanilla, dry top soil, dry stones, limestone minerals, crushed rocks with dark withering flowers. The acidity is round & nice. The long finish is still slightly earth dominate but, showing elegance, richness and the beginnings of polish.

Photos of; Chateau Lynch Bages, the iconic work shed on the Estate, the old historic basket press and construction of a new state of art facility. Completion TBD.
