Domestic Sankt! Local Sankt at that. Nice tension. I’d totally drink that without raising an eyebrow. I’m gonna ride my bike near that vineyard this morning. — 6 days ago

Château Bellefont-Belcier

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

It's time for some #Merlot on this #MerlotThursday. Here is a nice one from Bordeaux.

Dark ruby in color with a wide brick/ reddish rim.

Nose of blueberries, black currants, wood, vanilla, vegetables, spices, tobacco, forest floor, nail polish remover, Indian spices and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, cedar, leather, vanilla, vegetables, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, black pepper, peppercorn, tobacco, earth, green herbs and forest floor.

Medium plus in finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very nice Right Bank Bordeaux. Probably has some flaw on the nose, but not corked. Much nicer on the palate.

This 15 year old from a great vintage, is rich and extracted with a lot of earth notes. Showing a nice mouthfeel with nice complexity.

Needs a few hours to open up properly. Drinking very nicely now, and will continue to evolve in the next 5 to 10 years.

Thank you Jesus for sharing this with me.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses, crackers and fresh berries.

A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 16 months in Oak barrels

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$60.

Puszta Libre! Burgenland Zweigelt St. Laurent

Deep ruby, almost purple; medium intensity aromas tomato leaf, raspberry, wild strawberry. Medium alcohol, medium soft tannin, light body, high acidity. Flavors match aromas with a very distinct ruby red grapefruit acidity and afterbite that’s almost fizzy feeling. Some bell pepper and sour cherry on there too with a touch of mineral for good measure. A lot going on and maybe a bit angular and chaotic, but I say very good. Short plus finish. — 16 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

From the superb 2005 vintage. Deep, powerful, masculine and layered, clearly still in its youth but wow this will be phenomenal. Already showing nicely with rich blackberries, cassis, newly bloomed violets, mocha, leather and hints of tea leaves. Finishes long and intense with plenty of grip. — a day ago

Château Croix de la Nauve

Saint Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Château Croix de la Nauve Saint Emilion 1982, Bordeaux, France

Time for
#MerlotThursday. Here is a gorgeous one from Bordeaux.

Dark brown in color with a wide copper rim.

Nose of cherries, blueberries, wood, licorice, spices, dark coffee, green tea, light barnyard, black pepper and tobacco.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, plums, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, earth, wet leaves, leather, light vegetables, spices, tobacco leaf, black tea, dark coffee and black pepper.

Medium finish with no tannins and cherries.

This Saint Emilion from a the great 1982 vintage is drinking very nicely now. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel. Smooth, soft and elegant.

Not very earthy, which surprised me, and easy drinking. Simpler on the nose than on the palate, and still holds lots of fruits.

Good right out of the bottle and didn't need much to open up.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

91 points.

Happy Valentines Day!!

Love this producer!! 30+ minute decant. Dark red color. One of the best noses out there. First Growth like. Wine is full of dark cherries, tar, earth, smoke, and that classic French terroir. Finish was medium and wine could have used more depth, but I’m nitpicking! Phenomenal!!
