Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

Decanted for a two hours before we got into this bottle and then consumed over the following three hours. This is one of the more unique producers from Chateauneuf du Pape as they are known to have the most prized and oldest Mourvèdre in the region. Initially, this had the funkiest aroma, almost that of a high school locker room. Thankfully, that blew off after about five minutes. What remained was a powerful, concentrated wine with a bouquet of red and blue fruits with garrigue and exotic spices. On the palate, red cherries and baked blueberries and an unmistakable kiss of black pepper. Very good acid and sneaky tannins; characteristic of the vintage. And while the 15% abv is kept fairly well in check, it does have a touch of heat on the finish. Fun to try one now but I expect this to show better after 2025. — 14 days ago

I’m a big fan of this producer’s CdRV. Those take some time to come around as well, in my experience.

Mont du Roi Chardonnay Viognier

Very tasty white blend. Not steely at all. Acidic like it's almost carbonated. A bit minerally. Loved it. — 10 days ago

Vinya Selva de Mar Empordà White Blend 2018

This was recommended for Thanksgiving from the wine shop as "unique" so we decided to try it. Golden in color, it has a subtle smell of apples. Then it tastes like bourbon with apples again and is tanic on the tongue. Paired nicely with cheese and charcuterie. I would get it again but it's not my favorite. — 6 days ago

Miguel Torres S.A.

40th Vintage Mas La Plana Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Torres family has been related to wine since the 17th century. Aged in oak for 18 months (70% new). Dark Ruby with aromas of black and blue fruits and complex spice. On the palate this Spanish Cab shows blackberry, currant and ripe cherry flavors with eucalyptus, black pepper and herb spice, concentrated and complex with well integrated and structured tight yet smooth tannins. Long finish ending with vanilla, oak and earthy notes. Can enjoy not but will benefit from aging. — 15 days ago

Lous Rougeos TERRASSES DU LARZAC Red Blend 2015

Great bottle, so filled with earth and leather. It starts with a strong cherry flavor and finishes with leather. The nose is also earthy. The finish is very smooth with no harsh notes and without the peppery flavor found in the 2014. Just a great Carignan blend. — 7 days ago

Organic Les Baux-de-Provence Grenache Blend 2018

If you can get an organically grown wine from France to the US that is fresh and lively on the palate with no trace of funk, then kudos to you Madame Cartier and sons. This baby is all fruit: blueberry, black cherry, currants. Well worth a detour to southwestern France for this well-balanced blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet. — 13 days ago
