Soliste Cellars

St. Andelain Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Soliste’s Ode to Dagueneau. Blistering acidity. First taste was a bit harsh, but as my palate accommodated to the acid, this got better and better. — 10 days ago

Chappellet

Mountain Cuvée Proprietor's Blend 2015

It is the start of the weekend and I have opened the 2015 Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Proprietors Blend. The wine is 37% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 11% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc.

On the nose I am getting black cherry, blackberry, black currant, bakers chocolate, molasses, asparagus, caramel, vanilla, clove and leather.

Upon first sip on the palate the is jammy dark fruit of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, a little heavy on the toasted oak and gravel.

This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + rich mouth coating tannins that lead to a long lingering oaky dark fruit finish. With the cooler weather continuing into the weekend along with rain it looks like an indoor movie for me, but we will have to check out some other of my reds. Have a great weekend and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
