Château Talbot

Saint-Julien Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1906

Night two at Bern’s. We’re going for some incremental age tonight. Chosen for its good color, despite a low fill. Reddish tawny color, a bit cloudy, and has a high pitched nose at first. Notes of red fruit, cedar and cranberries initially. With more air, the nose settles down to show more Bordeaux character including dusty earth, wood desk and gravel stone. This blossomed after 30 or so minutes, then began to decline. At peak it had a 95 point nose. Overall it was a great experience. — a year ago

Hartley-Ostini Hitching Post

Cork Dancer Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2017

Medium garnet with lighter edges. Nose of earth and wood. Has to warm up & air but once done a smooth, medium body Pinot with low tannins and ending with medium acidity- fairly dry for a Pinot as well Flavors of red plum & berries with some black fruit as well. Very nice and great for the price. — 2 years ago

More black cherry and blueberry fruit on the palate with notes of dark chocolate, baking spices and maple. Quite rich, concentrated and viscous. Velvety tannins and moderately low acidity. Big Pinot! — 5 months ago
