Microterroir De Los Lingues Carménère 2009

Wow. Caramel wafting..

For a 10 year old Carmenere, this wine is insanely good.
Taken next to some fossils, the picture represent longevity.
Medium bodied with blackberry, cherry, and some citrus. All to be bombed by a lovely heap of green pepper. Lingering tannins with tropical acidity.

I love a good Carmenère!

Lodi Zinfandel 2016

They say the first grapes in CA were Zin planted in Lodi. This is a basic not too fruity example. — 3 days ago

Estos vinos de Concha y Toro no tienen pierde hay de diferentes precios, variedades y siempre caen bien, en este caso la Carmenere (la cepa perdida como le llaman).

Armador Carménère 2008

Really interesting Chilean Red. This one had to improve with age! Dark fruits, poblano pepper with a touch of anise. Black pepper spice on the long finish. Great with beef! Thanks Ron! — 9 days ago

Nice pepper/spice, due to Chilean terroir and high altitude. Thought it was a Shiraz at first — 9 days ago

Don Melchor Puente Alto Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The smoky and earthy undertones are lovely which collect momentum with the green bell pepper, tar and black licorice aromatics that all take shape in the glass. The palate is plush, unveiling a silky mouthfeel that entices. Black tea, Asian spices, sweet pipe tobacco and rich dark fruits all collide on the palate. The freshness imparted here is really excellent. Dense and layered, with tremendous nerve and tension, this stunning wine will cellar well for two decades. Drink 2020-2038-96 — 17 days ago

Cachapoal Valley Syrah 2013

Great vintage find.

Stoic fruit and a touch of he old cellar dust, makes up an inhalation of the nostrils,
Right from the top, an amalgamation of dark fruits, dried fig, prune, dark cherry, a hint of lively herbs, and a dash of tarragon like acidity.
A lovely wine, and great price for the vintage.

Saarloos & Sons

Equality Estate Grown El Camino Real Sauvignon Blanc 2018

This has a nice fresh nose of honeydew, tarragon and like a florist shops cooler (but not overly floral) if you know what I mean. To me there was hints of green pepper, dates and lemongrass that came out as you drank it. This went really well with some clams we had tonight. It also would be outstanding alone as well. Overall this is an outstanding glass of wine. — 14 hours ago

Habit Wine Company

Jurassic Park Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2016

I’ve had Jurassic Park Chenin from a handful of producers and I really like Jeff Fischer’s version. It’s dry Chenin in the shadow of, maybe, Huet dry Chenin. Creamy and acidic, fruity, floral, and spiced. Peaches, white flowers, and baking spices upfront. It picks up body from the lees and some time in oak. — 6 days ago
