Oreno Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2019

Blend of Merlot, Cab Sauv & Petit Verdot, aged 18 months, new French oak, celebrates the wine's 20th anniversary. Dark Ruby red color with aromas of dark fruits, cigar box and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, black cherry and plum with tobacco and leather spice. Fine firm chewy tannins, long finish ending with tobacco, fruit and mineral spice character. Nice! Will age, I would wait a few years to fully enjoy! — 2 months ago

Château Potensac

Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1997

1997 vintage. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc. The most humble of the Domaines Delon stable ( Léoville Las Cases, Clos du Marquis, Nénin) is showing incredibly well at 27 years old. Showing its age more in the nose than in the taste, but actually improving with decanting ( thanks broken cork!). Still good fruit, with refreshing acidity and a good grip of soft tannin. Very good length too. Still worth seeking out from a well-stored bottle. — 2 months ago

Ribera Del Duero Tempranillo 2017

Deep Ruby Ribera del Duero from vines mostly up to 80-years old, (blended with amount of younger vine fruit), aged for 18 months in predominately French oak (20% new), aromas of complex fragrant fruit, spice and oak. On the palate ripe cherry and blackberry fruits, powerful yet elegant, with herb spice & smoky oak notes on full soft tannins. Long finish, nice mouthfeel, ending with spice and mineral earthy tones, a joy to Sip this Fine Wine. Aging well, great now! — 7 months ago

Les Maillons Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Champagne Pinot Noir

D: 3/18; ‘14 Base. Initially the quieter of the two, but opened up into sheer magnificence. Candied almond and walnut with lip smacking acid finish. Sublime, a real treat to have a genuine side-by-side. — 4 months ago

My main chain of local liquor stores has the 2016 and the 2018 - but not the 2017. Rats!
