Le Petit Clos Apalta Red Blend 2017

Decanted 3 hrs prior to tasting.

Aromas - medium intensity green pepper and quince, red plum, dark cherry, currant, slight damp earth. Savory and stony mineral notes emerge over time.

Palate - medium bodied, medium+ acid and ripe medium tannins. Ripe fruit and mineral across an expansive yet weightless mid palate and a medium + length mineral driven finish.

The structure and complexity are here to allow for aging and I feel this will be better in 4-6 years.

The group favorite in tonight's wine tasting, paired with Ribeyes. All 3 wines were very enjoyable.

Cuvée Alexandre Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Very enjoyable especially for the price of about $25. It really opened up after a day open. First day was just ok. Second day was more elegant and refined. — 5 months ago

Clos Apalta Limited Release Carménère Blend 2012

Brought to Tasting Group and presented double-blind. The 2012 Clos Apalta pours a deep ruby with an opaque core; high viscosity. There also seems to be quite a bit of fine sediment. On the nose, medium+ intensity displaying an opulent mix of ripe and wizened fruits: black berries, raspberries, and blueberries with cola, espresso, freshly tilled earth and just a kiss of green bell pepper. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the black fruits with red bramble and cherry fruit along with purple flowers and baking spices. Alcohol is medium+. Long, long finish. The wine was universally fawned over with guesses ranging from left bank classified growth to California Zinfandel to Australian Shiraz. Nobody called Carménère, let alone Chile. Blend: 66% Carménère, 19% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. — 21 days ago

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Eiswein Kabinett Riesling 1978

Tasted blind. Dark gold. Sweet nose. Notes of apricot, wet stones, lemon zest, some orange and Grand Marnier and something like bay leaf. Very light acidity, somewhat flat. All this and the color tell me it’s old German so I guess 70s. — 7 months ago
