With Goat Cheese

Donkey and Goat

Fenaughty Vineyard Syrah 2011

Marc Stubblefield
9.2

Has all the je ne sais quoi of El Dorado Syrah. Meaty and smoky and blueberry and underripe plum and just a hint of eucalyptus. Unmistakable house style of D&G, with plenty of acidity to keep things lively on the palate. At 6, this is pretty great with an hour in the decanter, but still a few years away from its best self. Wish I had more. — 2 days ago

Donkey and Goat

The Gadabout California White Blend

Still needs some cellar time to grow into itself and develop into a fully harmonious glass of wine, but with a little time in the decanter, this is pretty darn tasty already. Unfined/unfiltered, this is more like food than wine, one of the murkiest wines I've ever seen in the glass. — 5 months ago

The Recluse Broken Leg Vineyard Syrah 2010

Wow! This is hitting on all levels! Beautiful perfumed nose with some herbs (lavender?) and fresh berries. Taste is very tart cherries, dark blue fruits, and some stone. — 17 days ago

Château Montus

Madiran Tannat Blend 2010

Nose is savory with some oak, dark cherry. Very warm and enticing. Palate is initially tight. And the tannins really pull at the tongue. Over time, tobacco, licorice and leather flavors appear. Nose and glass develop cigar box aroma. Day 2 tannins are reasonable; light acidity; nose unchanged. A little disappointed until combined with goat cheese, when the wine reveals layers of explosive tanginess and saltiness. After a couple of hours, juicy acidity finally there, rewarding patience. — 4 days ago

Château Potensac

Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Vintage 2001 - lovely cherries in taste, cacao impression, lively taste, a bit dusty smell, very clearly liquorice, minerals. Still some tannins, powerful but excellent with some cheese. — 2 days ago
