Block 1a Amadio Kersbrook Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

From the Mount Lofty Ranges in the Adelaide Hills. Medium ruby color. Tart red fruit and violet aromas. The palate features ripe cherry and cranberry flavors with hints of black pepper, black olives and dried herbs. Touch of poblano pepper. Medium-plus oaky finish and dusty and drying tannins. Muscular and bold. Drinking pretty well right now but should soften if aged for an additional decade. Thanks for sharing, Ron B! — 4 months ago

The Messenger Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Still young and red fruit forward- would still leave for another 5 years for more tertiary development. Small amount of tabbaco and forest floor on mid-palate..integrates tannins. Want nicely with a good hanger steak. — 5 years ago

Maison L'Envoyé

Chateau Vivier Monopole Fleurie Gamay Noir 2014

Maison L'Envoyé, The House of the Messenger, was born out of the Oregon/Burgundy partnership of Evening Land founder Mark Tarlov and Louis Michel Liger-Belair of Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. Prior to his wine ventures Tarlov wrote speeches for Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, as well as directed the 1999 rom-com Simply Irresistible starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. I can only assume he's Frank Abagnale's little brother. This is some serious Beaujolais. Ultra pure floral notes of iris and lavender play well off the high-toned bright red fruit along with layers smoke, licorice, stone, and herbs. A stylish alloy of modern, Cru Beaujolais and rich New World decorum. — 7 years ago
