Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2018

Was a treat to have this the other night, haven’t had since my semester in Italy, a rare find as apparently only a small amount of these in TX right now — 3 months ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Wonderful wine that opened up nicely after an hour in the decanter. Great start to an evening with colleagues and just the right choice before we got to the steak where some of the other wines shined a lot more — 6 months ago

Hall Wines

Kathryn Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

A bit different than the other KHall cabs but it drank nicely. Loads of cassis, leather and smoke. This is a Full bodied, inky black in the glass drink. Smoke and charcoal dominate with beautiful tannins and a nice long finish. — 8 months ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

2005 vintage. Almost tastes like it could have been released last week. Super youthful with dark berry and plum blasts. Decent structure but not oppressive. Catching this one just below the top of the bell curve. Hopefully, you’ve got more than one bottle kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown. Other-worldly now but methinx it’s about to get even better. Last tasted in mid-June and same score but this bottle was slightly better. Seek this out-now. — 3 months ago

Marcel Lapierre

Morgon Gamay 2013

Nearing a decade of bottle age and some great secondary stuff starting to emerge—wet earth, fall leaves, leather, campfire complement the lingering primary black cherry and violet. Beautiful and worth the wait as with other top Cru Beaujolais — 6 months ago

Paul Jaboulet Aîné

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2007

Quite fulsome and dense for a 15 year old Rhone - but it is Jaboulet La Chapelle. Probably opened too early - I only have one other. Ripe black fruits, some smoky notes, a touch of pepper. A little square sided on the full bodied palate. A Syrah with excellent potential but not worth the $417AUD I paid to be honest. One would be better off with 3 bottles of Clonakilla Shiraz/Viognier and some change in your pocket. — 2 months ago

Ouch, that's about $285 USD, more than I'm willing to pay as well. We do have older and newer vintages and we didn't pay those prices here.

Grande Cuvée Brut Champagne Blend

The 169 is still too rough around the edges for me. Will need to keep storing the other bottles for a few more years. — 8 months ago
