Les Gaudichots Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2004

Pretty rare bottle. Its very elegant and understated but has inner power and density same time. Very floral and balanced, exquisite wine. Much better than the other bottle we had recently. Great stuff ! — 2 days ago

Stags Leap District Proprietary Red Blend 2018

Kukeri Wines Stags Leap District Proprietary Red Blend 2018 Napa Valley, California

It’s time for a nice Cabernet for my
#FridayCabernetfix.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, black currants, cooked plums, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, espresso, pencil lead, black pepper, spices, herbs and light vegetables.

Full-bodied, big and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, black plums, oak, licorice, spices, coffee, cola, pencil lead, light peppercorn, vegetables, vanilla, earth and beef jerky.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This young Bordeaux blend from Stags Leap is spicy and interesting, and already drinking very nicely. Fruit forward and nicely balanced.

Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Tasty and rich, soft and warm.

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

Showing great potential to be a great 95+ point wine, and will age nicely in the next 15 years. A good quality wine that would be nice to revisit in 5 to 10 years.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.

A blend of 52% Cabernet Franc, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 3% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. A small production of only 290 cases. Aged in French and American oak barrels for 18 months.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$65.

Château Lagrange

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Drinking great ten years in. Beautiful deep ruby color. Aromas of plum, leather, pipe tobacco, and dried black fruit. Decanted for 4 hours — delicate balance of supple fruit against well structured tannin. There are smoky leathery notes on the palate, but blackberry, cassis, and plum fruit all come through. I think we caught this one at a great moment. Could be softer, but pairing great with medium rare zabuton steaks. — 3 days ago

Ikarus rotwein Cabernet Sauvignon Cubin 2012

Ambitious wine from a rare grape (cabernet cubin). A lot of oak, but pretty well handled. A lot of power, could have more finesse, but still enjoyable. — 3 days ago

Ravines Wine Cellars

Cerise Red Blend 2016

Nose has cranberry sauce, red Twizzler® candy, white pepper, ripe plum, mashed red raspberry and lightly toasted oak.

Palate has ripe cherry, ripe red raspberry, fresh cranberry, light ripe plum with mild (drying) tannins and a medium finish.

Cork pulled for a 4H slow oxidation, then 1H decant. This wine is still a teenager, the 2016 should easily hold thru 2024.

Blend of Pinot Noir & Blaufränkisch.

Paired to lemon chicken in a dill cream sauce; cast iron pan from stove top to oven, becoming our most versatile piece of cookware!
