Immortal Estate

Slope Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Color is deep ruby and brick with a nose of black currants, prunes, and vanilla. It also includes herbal notes of oregano and maybe green peppercorns. I also pick up dusty notes. Great fruit on this wine with well integrated tannins and flavors pumping through the long, impressive finish. This is a really good wine. — 12 days ago

Château Haut-Bergey

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Color starting to mature a bit. Nose has lots of different things going on: cassis, warm brick, an iodine note, cigar box, and a bit of eucalyptus even. Soft and expansive in the mouth, though not terribly dense of concentrated. Dark berries, leather, lots of dry sandstone. — 25 days ago

Palmina

Santa Barbara County Nebbiolo 2014

Light brick to ruby in color with transparent edges. The initial bouquet is jam. Hints of currants and red raspberry. Gentle and smooth with a balanced acidity and tannins. Excellent. This wine could be stored for another 3-5 years.

Enderle & Moll

Buntsandstein Pinot Noir 2011

Nose is that old burgundy water on hot brick. Sweet cherry. Earth.

Palate is sweet cherry. The best sweet cherry licorice ever. Hints of tomato.

There is a magnificence about this. Almost an herbal spiciness after an hour.

Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2003

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a wide red/brick rim.

Pretty nose of currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, herbs, light vegetables, pencil lead, light vinaigrette, olives, peppercorn, leather, tobacco leaf, earth and dark coffee.

Full bodied and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with cooked black plums, ripen cherries, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, earth, light vanilla and black pepper.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Tuscany. Smooth with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

This 19 year old is Interesting and tasty. Not from the best vintage, but still very yummy, and at its peak right now.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours of airtime.

Thank you Judy for sharing this with me.

Robert Mondavi Winery

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby, almost inky in color, with a short brick rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, cooked plums, cherry pie, spices, cedar, vanilla, leather, light earth, pencil lead, peppercorn, coffee, mocha and tobacco leaf.

Full bodied, bold and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, cooked cherries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, leather, black currants, sweet chocolates, coffee, cola, peppercorn and spices.

Long spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley (To Kalon Vineyard). Showing great complexity with a great mouthfeel.

Rich, extracted and opulent. Fruit-forward and elegant. A delicious wine. Spicy with a teeth staining color.

This 15 year old from the great 2007 vintage is just beautiful now. Has a lot of years in it still, and will continue to age nicely in the 15 years.

Delicious right out of the bottle, and even better after 3 hours of airtime.

Good by itself as a sipping wine. I just loved it.

16% (!) alcohol by volume.

98 points.

Bérêche & Fils

Campania Remensis Champagne Blend 2017

Med pink, strawberry, cherry, rhubarb aroma notes. Really nice weight on the tongue, and brilliant fruit/acid balance. Long, juicy finish that gains authority as the wine warms. So marvelous with king crab, Amalfi lemon pasta and a three inch brick of impeccably crusted Halibut. What an evening to sit on Chicago’s Riverwalk and watch the peops. Happy Memorial Day to all, esp those serving or having served! — a month ago
