La Landonne Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2006

Blind Rhône’s from Saturday. My #1 wine in flight 2 and also the group #1. Again, this just completely outclassed the competition in the flight. Oozing with depth, concentration and brutish elegance. Black cherry, rich earth, sauvage and a lovely spice/pepper under-current. — 10 days ago

Lancaster Estate

Estate Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

A thrown in after the Rhône’s, I thought this was firing strong. Silky concentrated blue fruit, smooth long focused finish. It didn’t compare to the Rostaing or Vogue Cornas but it showed better than a solid lineup of Rhône’s. Perhaps why....although Burgundy is stealing my heart....Cabernet still pleases my loins. — 10 days ago

Le Vassal Red Blend 2015

Felt young,. Super herbaceous and smelling like a butcher’s shop that’s caught fire, but the different harmonies need a little time to come into place with each other. — 3 months ago
