Fantastic #Tempranillo from Bodegas Campos Reales DO #lamancha This is a new wine called Edición Especial and it is one of only two wines to have been selected for a new superior quality category in the DO called La Mancha Excelente. Deep color, pronounced aromas and flavors and a good balance between the ripe juicy fruit and the acidity. — a month ago

The wines of Roger Sabon have been on my radar for about ten years now and I have always thought the “Prestige” designation was, pound-for-pound, one of the better values in all of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. However, for one reason or another, I never seem to drink them that often. This particular bottle of “Le Secret des Sabon” was a lone singleton resting in my cellar since release. My wife, after an unusually exhausting week of work, said she wanted to drink something “impressive”...which means to me that the juice better not suck. And while “Le Secret” has a reputation for being one of the great wines from the entire appellation, I was taking some risk when I selected this bottle since I had no personal experience with it. As soon as I pulled the cork, it was clear this was going to be a special experience. Glass staining garnet with a touch of color that looks almost brown-ish however, there are no signs of decomposition. There is, however, a fairly decent amount of fine sediment. The fruit...well...the fruit is simply sensational. We’re talking fistfuls of the purest raspberries and cherries with some star anise, slightly burned pie crust and black pepper. This is a wine of tremendous texture and balance. Medium acid and medium plus tannins, the latter of which are so fine and silky. The ABV is stated as 15% but it’s so well hidden you would hardly notice. My only wish was that “Le Secret des Sabon” wasn’t so expensive...but there is no doubt about its quality. Drinking so well now but could easily hold for longer if necessary. — 17 hours ago
This is the best TX Hill Country vineyard available wine I have had. Quote from their back label "The fruit for their 2015 basket press Shiraz was all sourced from the Stonewell region of the Western Barrosa in Australia. 16 parcels were individually selected in the vineyard & small batch fermented. Each ferment was hand plunged thrice daily, in the traditional French method before being rested on skins for a total of 25 days. Hand plunging and extended skin contact can only be followed by using a basket press to extract every precious drop of wine without a compromise in quality. The final blend spent a total of 27 months maturing in new and seasoned French oak barrels. A delicious traditional Barossa Shiraz, that while drinking excellently now, will reward 5 to 10 years careful cellaring." — a month ago
Nice pleasant wine with no acidic aftertaste you find in a lot of white winex — 24 days ago
Delicious blend, would pare nice with pasta and spicy food. Will buy again — a month ago
Just what I was looking for today! Very deep and rich, but we’ll balanced between dark fruit and floral elements. Decent texture and a complex nose of perfume, flowers, and Portuguese terroir. Very good value @ our favorite cheese and charcuterie place!! — 2 months ago
