An awesome dark bold Cab. Great value wine — 8 months ago

Wendouree Cabernet Malbec 2015

Amazing wine. So complete and composed. Violets, bay leaf, plums, cassis, liquorice and perfectly judged oak nuance. Fruit feels perfectly ripe. A wall of tannin but nothing to resolute. Acidity well inter grated. Grand stuff — 2 years ago

Domaine Gourt de Mautens (Jérôme Bressy)

Vaucluse Red Rhone Blend 2013

It’s not often that I open a note with a resolute, Wow, but the 2013 Gourt de Mautens deserves such praise. The bouquet opened with an intense display of white pepper, crush mint (or is that basil), rosemary, moist earth and hints of sweet brown spice. On the palate, it was impossibly soft and enveloping to all of the senses, yet vibrant with a display crushed violets, black fruit, and savory olive. Tannins mounted toward the finish as the wine resonated on peppery spices and a resounding note of black olive. I can't wait to see where this wine is going over time. — 2 years ago

Scopus Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Soft buttered popcorn. Light butter, creamy texture with an acidic component like a creamy sorbet. Absolutely beautiful Chard. Dry finish — a year ago

Pierre Gonon

Saint-Joseph Syrah

I had 2 or 3 bottles of this in last few years & was consistently underwhelmed, was a disjointed, ugly duckling. Well, the ugly phase is over. Gorgeous deep black currant color w red rim. Resolute & length, medium weight. Game, currants, & cooked herbs (sage?). Uber enjoyable w beef stew & potato pie. Threw off alot of sediment- should have decanted, but luckily was a good pour — 2 years ago

Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Clos St. Urbain Rangen de Thann Riesling 1995

Marmalade on a tartar based biscuit, spruce trimmings, dried apples, hazelnuts and sprouted spaghetti squash. There is a dried mint note to dazzle. Three types of citrus vie for entry, pomelo, grapefruit and tangerine, but each recedes and ducks away to sour peach and old beeswax, kafir leaf, pencil, rosemary and dry oregano. Dry finish of resolute grace. — 3 years ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Oozes quality. Pencils shavings and fresh cedary oak is present but the fruit is up to the task. Medium plus, fresh acidity and medium plus chewy but not resolute tannins give the wine it’s shape, paving the way for long finish — a year ago

Vietti

Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Three hours in the decant and still a little closed, but with more time the wine unfurled to become more and more primary. Tannin profile note quote as resolute as one may expect from Castiglione, but these Vietti wines do tend to more approachable than most. Watery acid and long finish. Spot on. Worth another look in ten. — 2 years ago

Lambert Bridge

Sonoma County Merlot 2006

Dare say this was way better than the last bottle I had about 2 or 3 years ago. This was kind of a forgotten gem in the cellar that I found last Friday. A little vegetal from cork pop had me worried but this wine blew off in 20 minutes and showed great terroir and classic aged foresty black notes emerged. Lots of body was here and very ample fruit. Finish showed completely resolute tannin. Very silky finish. Great with olive and mushroom marinara. Probably slightly in decline at this point. It quite a delight tonight at 10 years old. — 2 years ago
