Château Ormes de Pez

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Merlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (41%), Cabernet Franc (7%) and Petite Verdot (2%). Intense (almost black) purple color. Bold aromas of earth, forest floor, iodine and black cherry. Black cherry/cassis on the pallet with hints of tobacco, earth and graphite. Extremely full bodied and well structured. Chewy tannins and a smokey finish. 14.5% alcohol. The wine is well balanced because everything is large about this one. — 2 years ago

Jayson Napa Valley Red Blend 2018

Ordered this at a steakhouse because my mom and her husband prefer fruity and agreed with a Merlot. This was above expectations. Not too fruity but delicious. Fragrant bouquet. Soft finish. Would buy again. — 2 years ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Gorgeous. Cigar box and plum nose. Palate was perfectly melted tannins - elements of sous bois, currants and that touch of sweetness I adore in perfectly mature bottles. Excellent claret — 2 years ago

Sine Qua Non

Piranha Waterdance Syrah 2014

A Syrah this Saturday night with NY strip. Color - dark rich garnet. Nose - scents of stewed meat and dark cherry aromas jump from the glass followed by herbal tea mint and smoked bacon notes with hints of chocolate licorice and white pepper. Taste - structured nicely with a creamy feel. Layers of the wine are flavors of dark cherry with a tang and notes of dark chocolate, currants, smoked cedar and tar with a nice long finish. Yummy! Pairs awesome with 5 year aged white cheddar cheese. A must try!! — 2 years ago
