Coleraine Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2018

Vintage 2018, opened in 2022. Still very young. I think will develop a lot in some years. Big structure, flavors in all the spectrum. Rich, complex, elegant and powerful — 5 months ago

Sophia Gimblett Gravels Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Rich Bordeaux blend. Very aromatic expressing dark fruits, cigar box and moist cave. On the palette similar flavors growing in intensity. Fine polished tannins fully integrated giving it a very balanced lingering finish. Needed a special wine today being grateful for God’s protection after flipping the Racer a full 360 and still landing on all four wheels unharmed. Thank you God ❤️ — 4 months ago
