Maison Ventenac

Cuvée Pierre Cab Sav/Cab Franc 2018

Excitement in a bottle! A lovely blend of Cab Sav and Cab Franc, not too jammy and not too dry. Went lovely with my lamb sausage, and celery root/carrot mash dinner. I'll be back for sure. — 8 days ago

Piper-Heidsieck

Rare Champagne Blend 2006

15 year old milliseme, Cork shows the age, but the wine is still viberant. Aged millese with ripe fruits: ripe apple and hints of lime freseur. Crème caramel with a thick later of burnt sugar. Still some acids to keep it interesting fresh. — a month ago

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2011 tasted April of 2021. While the flirtatious wines of Bordeaux will, with rare exceptions, betray my trust, I can always depend on Joseph Phelps to provide me with a solid bottle wine.

Year after year, no matter what the stresses of the vintage were, the wine makers at JP know how to produce perfectly balanced Cabs and Cab blends (but they’re not as successful with the non-Cab varietals).

This bottle of JP’s Cab is decade old, and it’s just hitting its stride. Lots of leather, rust, and a hint of mint on the nose. Ripe cherries and pomegranates on the front. The original velvety tannic balance has become just a wee bit tattered over the years. But this new-found roughness provides a youthful and boisterous counterpoint to the rest of the component that are entering a staid middle age (in wine years that is). It’s like your 45-year-old dad going wild and buying a Harley Davidson, then cruising off down the road. You say, “WTF! That’s is the way to live!” Lots of gravely high notes on the mid palate, but the old velvety tannins reassert themselves on the long finish. This is a damn lovely wine!

18 Years Rare Edition Rothes Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

So judged after the rye Scotch Arbikie which people said was unfair since that flavor stuck around for a while. I describe it as non-descript. There just wasn’t a lot there in the nose or the flavor profile. Coming back to it later didn’t do much for me either. It was labeled a “down the fairway” Scotch. I’m obviously then been spoiled by these classes. Not bad. Not exceptional. — 2 days ago
