Black Label Sémillon 1979

The label is barely there, but i bought in the James Halliday's collection auction as a Wood Matured Black label 1979.
At this stage I opened a few of these old semillon and I am honestly loving them even though i realise that not everyone would.
Once they get to room temperature the magic happens.
This is complex and fairly fresh, not gone at all.
I smell almond, bruised apples, nutmeg, ginger, turmeric, lanolin, coriander. Autumn forest floor and boiled chestnuts. Nougat and marzipan. Peppermint.
It's very long. It's an experience. It talks its own language. I don't think there is anything like it anywhere else. 41yo, nearly my age, but much more interesting than me.

No. 81 Sonoma Collection Chardonnay 2016

Was expecting heavy metal given the gigantic bottle and got completely the opposite - elegant if a bit thin but with no edge on the finish....very nice — 5 days ago

Black Label Syrah Blend 2006

@paxmahle kills it His alternate label exudes a refined Syrah. Deep rich sweet cherry with perfectly refined tannins. Light hints of black pepper add depth and character. Lower amounts of acidity, mean this is ripe for consuming. Just awesome — 2 days ago

Walla Walla Valley Merlot 2017

The 2017 ‘Walla Walla Valley’ Merlot is sourced in equal parts from the Seven Hills Vineyard and Ferguson Vineyard. Needing an hour in the decanter to be fully aroused, once awoken you experience dark currants and sandalwood aromatics, woven together with with shades of milk chocolate and roasted figs. The palate is fresh and vibrant with intense tannins that collide with the core of dark fruits, espresso bean and violets on the palate. With incredible tension and solid viscosity, this sturdy Merlot will enjoy a long life in the cellar. Drink 2022-2035- 93 — 3 days ago

Columbia Valley Merlot 2017

Plums, blackberries, raspberries accented with clove, and hints of sweet tobacco greeted me on the nose. There is a mixture of riper and more tart fruits on the palate, which are joined by hints of black tea, pepper, tobacco, light dried herbs, followed by earthiness and pencil lead. The wine’s structure was well balanced so that eventhough the body of the wine was medium+ to full, with fine tannins that gripped a little on the finish, it also had enough acidity so that it didn’t feel overly weighty.

No. 77 Napa Valley Reserve Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby (almost black) in color with a reddish rim.

Strong nose of baked cherries, black plums, red currants, light cedar, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, eucalyptus, dark chocolates, spices, black pepper, pencil lead, dirt and herbs.

Medium plus in body and smooth, with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, sweet strawberries, currants, wood, spices, light vanilla, tobacco, light alcohol, espresso, earth, pencil lead, coke and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty, and nicely aged, Cabernet Sauvignon from Mount Veeder in Napa Valley. Showing a great nose and a complex palate, with a nice mouthfeel.

Not a typical Napa Cabernet, and very unique for the region. A good quality wine with a pretty nose.

This 10 year old is still young and not showing its age much. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly, so be patient.

Tangy and good with food, too. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Great with the brie cheese.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$105.

Perigee Seven Hills Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

Foxy. Black currants and dust on the nose with oak and some cocoa. Savory, tannic, palate staining and a little sweet, but with enough acidic lift and freshness even at 14 years to make for interesting drinking. Some sediment has fallen out, but not enough; more time will help.. Very tasty. — 15 days ago
