Hundsrück Trocken Spätburgunder ,,J" 2012

Stunning nose. Mulch, sour and red cherries. Huge mint and menthol. Enormously complex. Tree bark, wood shavings, gorgeous minerality and earth. A divine perfume. Palate is so balanced, so fresh and so pure. Stunning juiciness and purity. But seems to be holding back as Walter always needs mega mega air. Incredible texture and just barely there sweetness and terrific purity. So complex and complete. An amalgam of early and mid season cherries. So juicy. So long. Energetic and mineral. Just a stunner. Concentrated, sappy and structured. Grand Cru all the way. Amazing wine. — 13 days ago

"J" Centgrafenberg Trocken Spätburgunder 2006

Dinner with a friend, brief notes this evening.

Prior notes still apply. Great wine, decanted two hours this time, just as good as the last bottle with 24h airing.

48 Hour Update:
Nose has cherry reduction, raspberry sauce, moist garden soil, wet granite chips and dried mint.
Palate has dried blackberry, ripe cherry, (minor) cedar shavings, wet soil, brown bread and chopped chestnuts.
Better performance was on initial opening.

Rougarou McCormick Ranch Vineyard Carignan 2018

Cloudy magenta in the glass, there’s a unique fruit profile here... intense nose of pomegranate, cranberry, and crunchy underripe fruit. There’s also an unusual funk here - not barnyard or earth, but an almost cheesy or buttermilk thing. Low tannin, high acid, decent length. Wife hated it, and I get why... I loved it with a slight chill! — 18 days ago
