Still going strong...
A gift from our friend @Martin G Rivard several years ago - thank you my friend.
This is a departure from our Napa cabs, but very welcome. ￼
The new pandemic is in this bottle: oak and spices dominate here. This is intensely complicated, and lacks linearity. In spite of this, it impresses. Fruits are so decadent - overripe cherries, with cinnamon rose petals and nutmeg notes coming along for the ride. Tannins are prominent, yet integrated. Swipe to the right on this. — 14 days ago
Syrupy texture, big oak, buttery, peach nectar. A bruiser of the white variety. Enjoyable, but would actually compete with food. Drink like a big red. — 2 days ago
Had a couple of these “Blue Boys” in my cellar. Mollydooker (Aussie for left-hander) Wines was established in 2005 by Sarah and Sparky Marquis. Dark Ruby with big dark berry fruit nose adding sweet spice and cedar. On the palate this wine has complex flavors of blackberry and blueberry with cacao, oak and vanilla. Fine dusty tight tannins, peasant mouthfeel, full-bodied, long ending with a nice spicy finish. Aging well, good now, has room to run. — 18 days ago
Deep Ruby, purple edges, with aromas of fresh berry fruits, cigar box spice and earthy mineral notes. On the palate rich ripe fruit, blackberry & black cherry with hints of dried spices. Good balance with slightly firm tannins, opened quickly, and lively acidity. Long finish, complex ending with oak, herb, mineral and earthy character. Will improve with short term aging, but don’t wait too long as you might be disappointed! Very nice Shiraz! — 23 days ago
Great brunch wine! Heavy flavors of grapefruit with a slightly floral nose and a medium body. Deliciously effervescent, literally like a mimosa in a bottle. — a day ago
This Cabernet is a bit different for Napa. It had remarkable depth and deep concentration of dark red fruit and Cocoa notes with a fairly light Tanic structure. Didn’t get any of that zing, any of that slight bitter but it still wasn’t flabby. Didn’t catch any hint of green or herbs at all but finished with some dried violet flavors.￼ — 15 days ago
