The Black Douglas

Robert Biale Vineyards

Black Chicken Napa Valley Zinfandel 2021

Just a lovely zin. For the price a great wine with a steak. Very forward and mouth filling, yet balanced. Just plain tasty. — 21 days ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2000

Drinking well, polished showing black & red fruit, cassis, spice box, graphite, leather, & sweet tobacco. Just beginning to enter its drinking window with many years ahead. — 16 days ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Coffee rye with baked, black currants, dried blackberry, cherrywood, cedar, light pepper, potable, African violet, fig, sarsaparilla and thyme. Grippy, grainy tannins awash in tart black cherry, cinnamon and savory. Young and green with tight tart edges, but open just enough to appreciated the complexities. Underrated sleeper vintage that just might come together. Finish is obfuscated at this juncture. Espresso is my guess, though!

Francis Ford Coppola Winery

Diamond Collection Black Label Claret California Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

A Gift! Nice Claret 2020 “1910 style” very Downton Abbey. — 14 days ago

Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Rim to rim color density. Red and black cherries poke through cedar and sweet tobacco on the nose with dark chocolate chunks, plum, prune and date, toasted sesame, cinnamon, rose petal, and cardamom. Chewy tannins that roll satin-smooth initially, then cassis, black currant and licorice flip the script. Graphite and blackberry frame dark chocolate and mocha-tobacco, oak and black bread.
