Happy new year DL peeps.
Enjoying this, but we both felt it was extra brut, rather than the brut label designation.
Typical champers notes of brioche and almonds. Good citrus grip, which finishes with muscular bubbles and a near bone-dry finish. Not quite our style, but still good. — a year ago
New Years Eve at The Farm Restaurant, Carneros Resort and Spa. Opened some of my favorite wines: Marcassin Chardonnay, 2012 with oysters and caviar and salmon dish. Structure of wine is layered with apricot-orange, floral blossoms, lemon, cedar and vanilla. The Next of Kyn, 2013 Syrah blend paired nicely with the Wellington beef. Covers the pallet with dark blackberry, licorice and chocolate changing in taste as it opened up. Tannins still present but not over powering. Both wines deserve a 9.5 rating with plenty of age left on them. — a year ago
Excellent modern style Pomerol with full of ripe red fruit and dark dried cherries with lots of tannin and slight hints of gravel. Beautiful Bordeaux but young yet goes marvellously well with a traditional beef Wellington. Cheers and happy New Years to all — a year ago
Smooth tannins, ripe red berries. Great NYE wine with a bone-in New York steak — a year ago
