Old Pearl


Old Vine Carignan 2016

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, black currants, cherries, vegetables, oak, bell peppers, cloves, pencil lead, black pepper, earth and dark chocolates.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with black cherries, blueberries, currants, oak, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, vegetables, bitter herbs, peppercorn, spices, green olives and bell pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy pomegranates.

This is an interesting red wine from Israel. Showing a nice mouthfeel with mild complexity. A good food wine, too. Showing plenty of fruits with lots of earth notes as well.

Needs a couple of hours to open up property and remove some of the acidity. I let it open up for 3 hours. Worth waiting for it. Tangy and interesting.

Still young and will be better in the next 3 to 5 years, but already drinking nicely.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

100% Old Vines Carignan grapes. Aged in French oak barrels for 16 months. Unfiltered and unfined. Kosher. Not Mevushal.

13% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Robert Biale Vineyards

Old Crane Ranch Zinfandel 2005

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has blackberry, boysenberry, ripe red cherry, dried raspberry, new leather, cedar shavings, blueberry skin and dry earth.
Palate has blackberry jam on old leather, dried black cherry, moist-loamy soil with sweet red pepper on the forever finish. Still showing tannins after a 4+ hour decant, this bottle could hold until a 20th birthday without concern, no color fade whatsoever.
One of the older bottles to Biale zinfandel to be coveted in our cellar, last bottle, of course.

Bell Hill Vineyards

Old Weka Pass Road Pinot Noir 2016

Pale Ruby. Some clove and tarry nuances on the nose. The pale colour belies the M+ Intensity. Very Burgundian in aroma, structure and palate. Even better on the 2nd night. The 2nd wine of Bell Hill made from younger vines from the top Cuvée. Very impressive. Only 1897 bottles made from Canterbury NZ and difficult to source even in Australia. — 5 days ago

Old Fitzgerald

15 Years Aged Bottled in Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 2019

Whiskeyfest. I like bourbon and this was solid for me. Not sure it’s worth the cost which is probably why they sell it in a fancy decanter (not shown in this pic as it’s a trade show bottle). — 13 days ago
