Vdr Very Dark Red Wines

Daou Vineyards

The Pessimist Paso Robles Red Blend 2018

Oh.my.gosh! My new favorite wine! Paso Robles has done it again plus it’s a Daou wine (which I already like). Dark purple in color, lots of dark fruit on the nose and palate, slightly tannic but very smooth. Will definitely buy again! — 3 days ago

Quinta dos Murças

Reserva Douro Red Blend 2011

Very “Rioja-like.” Big, dusty and meaty! Portuguese red blend. Aromas of black cherry, violets, granite and toasted oak. Hints of raisins. Black cherry, plums and blackberry flavors with notes of dark chocolate, beef jerky and mushroom. Aged in both American and French Oak. Lots of chewy tannins. Very rustic in style. — 15 days ago

Domaine Pieracci

Bandol Red Blend 2007

4.2 after a week open with Vacu Van it took that time for it to open sufficiently, but it is a very good wine with a dark color and a good and complicated nose with a full complex body that before had too much tannin but incorporated it well with the open time suggesting it needs more time to mature. It has a long and lovely aftertaste. — 18 days ago

Château Phélan Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

The 2016 is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. Deep Ruby with aromas of Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, cigar box spice and cedar notes. On the palate flavors of fresh blackberry and black cherry with cacao, tobacco and complex spice. Youthful firm tannins, well balanced on long finish, ending with earthy mineral elegance. Very nice. Tasted ’15 and ’16 side by side, ’16 slightly better, will age well. — 2 days ago

Canvasback (Duckhorn Vineyards)

Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

A big wine, plenty of dark fruit with layers and textures everywhere. Not as earthy as many Red Mountain Cabs, but still has some spicy oak notes to add complexity. Very nice now, but has time ahead when it will get better. — 3 days ago

St Innocent Winery

Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

A notch below the Momtazi Vineyard wine but very good still. Violet and dark fruit aromas. Black cherry, boysenberry, plum, smoke, cedar, and hibiscus on the palate. A solid Oregon pinot. Very enjoyable. — 4 days ago

Two Hands

Bella's Garden Shiraz 2016

I’ve always enjoyed this selection. The brooding dark fruits, the graphite, clove, and espresso, and the Luxardo syrup - it’s all very delicious. — 8 days ago
