Oroppas Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Raspberry and tea rose on the nose. Tart with mineral hints upfront. Juicy to tannic body. Finishes with mild and pleasant heat. Overall a very nice experience. — 19 days ago

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

A smidge disappointed given I’ve had many 2001 Bordeaux I quite like and separately that SJ is my favorite left bank appellation. Just a bit disjointed, with some drying tannins on the finish - definitely drink up if you have these. Still, can’t argue that this is classic Bordeaux and a great pairing with grilled hanger steak. — 6 days ago

Château Montrose

La Dame de Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

1hr decant. Medium purple color. Nose contained graphite, pencil shavings, and dark cherries. Wine was deep and coated my teeth and mouth. That being said it seemed very young and tight. Definitely give this a lot of air and a few more years. Excellent QPR. Was torn between 94/95, so gave it the benefit of the doubt based on the excellent, silky texture. — 11 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

We’re having the last 2011 Leoville tonight. This is always a wine for celebrating with. A traditional Saint-Julien wine of the finest quality. This 2011 vintage has great purity, concentrated fruit and serious structure. Classic cassis, brambly dark fruit deliciousness and deft use of oak are masterfully woven together into a seamless #grandcruclassé I can’t wait to have a few more glasses while this rain sets in for the weekend 🍷 #saintjulien #leovillebarton #memories — 5 days ago

Château la Bienfaisance

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Very enjoyable Bordeaux from Saint Emillion. Reflecting a little age but good dark berry fruit up front and good depth too. I think this wine needs to be enjoyed over next five years. — 3 days ago

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

Tasted blind. Dark ruby and almost opaque. Fragrant nose. Notes of cherries, rhubarb, herbs and tobacco, some earth and some menthol. Pure and refined. Gorgeous. Guessed 1989 La Mish. — 10 days ago

Château Larcis Ducasse

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Paired this tonight with Vitello Marsala with Fettuccini--all homemade by me--thank you very much 🤪.

Creamy-stewed red fruit, green olives and tobacco nose notes. Somewhat of an alc burn midway. Medium acidity, medium bodied, medium plus tannins. Obviously young and age worthy!

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Crushed seashell/ocean and pencil on the nose. Very secondary decomposing earthy palate with little fruit beyond blackberry seed. My daughter highlighted Soy Sauce on the nose as well...the padawan learns quick. — 4 days ago

Château Talbot

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Just ok. Was expecting more from classified growth from a great vintage. Decent left bank character but short finish and minimal fruit left. Certainly enjoyable but not worth the freight and effort to store for all of these years. — 9 days ago

Château La Mondotte

Comtes de Neipperg Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Decided to check in on these. Still in the big fruit stage - very drinkable but will certainly develop with more time on the shelf. — 4 days ago
