Château Villemaurine

St. Émilion Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015 vintage. Forward deep plum and molasses nose. Medium-heavy body. The molasses and plum + orange tea, chalk dust and a slight Sauternes accent. Interesting. Seems like it’s going through some things currently but still willing to please. Likely to lose some weight and be in a slightly different place in 1.5-3 years. — 3 days ago

Maison Denuzière

Les Galets Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2018

Molasses , honey , plum and fig on the nose. Fruit and nice balance of acidity. Fantastic wine now, would love to revisit after 5-10 years on it. 13% — 19 days ago

Château Haut-Bailly

Haut-Bailly II Pessac-Leognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Bigger and drinking more like a Pauillac but 65% merlot/35% cabernet sauvignon. Herbs, molasses, mint, espresso crema and sweet dark plum in the nose. Medium body. Plenty of punch/grip on the finish tamped down slightly with a supple and syrupy anise and baking chocolate finish. Sounds odd but it works. Super youthful and has enough balance to age nicely. Lots of moving parts and will be interesting to see what settles in for the long haul. A little something for everyone currently. — a month ago

Gonzalez Byass

Nectar Dulce Sherry Pedro Ximénez

Rich, sweet and flavourful. Flavors of fig, brown sugar, molasses, coffee, spices, and nuts. The complexity on the palate and the syrupy texture make this a decadent indulgence. — a month ago

Château Fleur Cardinale

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. World-class nose of panini sando bread/grilled pain au levain, lavender, molasses, bruised plum and wine-country kitchen. Dark as a moonless night. Medium-heavy/heavy body with a brooding, hide-and-seek, mid-palate presence. Slightly spicy finish. Needs a half-decade to come grooving up slowly. Steel yourself to treat this with more patience than most but not as much as some. If opening soon, decant for at least two hours. — 11 days ago

Massal 1945 Family Vineyards

Clos de Luz Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Was a little light when I opened it. But the next day it really opened up and was perfect. Dry with hints of molasses, it finished long with just the right grip. 2018 — 17 days ago

Two Hands

Bella's Garden Shiraz 2015

Raspberry, blackberry, plum on the nose. Punchy tannins, molasses and cardamom, vanilla, maybe a little tobacco. Hearty, drunk alongside a bison and chanterelles dish and played well with the earthy game notes. — a month ago
