Daou Vineyards

Reserve Seventeen Forty Paso Robles Red Blend 2017

Three consecutive vintages at 93 points. That’s impressive. The 17 blend comes with Cab Franc way in the foreground so very grippy tannins. But it opens up to delicious layers of cassis and black cherry. Delicious! — 2 months ago

Robert Mondavi Winery

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1979

My friend graciously shared his 1979 Robert Mondavi Winery ‘Reserve’ Cabernet Sauvignon(WWB, 92), a wine I had not visited since I was at the winery several years back. The nose is highly Bordelaise with layers of red currents and red bell pepper with shades of dusty terroir that all mingle in the glass. The wine still has a good degree of freshness and a core of dark fruits with red bell pepper, damp earth and sandalwood tones. This now forty one year old wine has aged very gracefully. While not in its prime, it will provide drinking enjoyment over the next five to ten years — yet another resounding success from this Oakville estate. Drink 2020-2025- 92 — 9 months ago

Château Pavie Macquin

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

I’ve seen mixed reviews on this wine and vintage; must admit I was weary about opening it. My bottle has been properly cellared for several years and decanted for forty minutes before drinking. Fortunately the wine is excellent in my opinion; very rich, luscious and decadent. Complex and evolving with a long finish. Cheers and a shame for those bad bottles but it’s all part of the love of wine... — 5 months ago
