Very masculin wine with granite, tar, leather, liquorice notes with amazingly soft silky tannin. It opens in 30 min to this explosion of aforementioned notes with black fruit in the background. Green bell pepper in the background give away the youth. It should develop very well over the years. Great length: good 35 seconds on the palate. Now I need to try the real deal COS from the same vintage. — 3 years ago
I’ll let my previous notes of weeks ago stand.
However, if you like white burgundy & can find some of their 2015-17, you owe it to yourself to order some of Pierre Boisson Bourgogne Blanc at $37.99.
Drinks like a well made Meursault and makes many elite Ca Chardonnays pale in comparison.
It has purity of fruit & minerality...not crushed in new oak and ABV burn.
You can spend $75 to $200 for elite Ca Chardonnay, I’ll take this over those any day. — 3 years ago
One can never have enough Lapierre Morgon in their life. Perfect for a hot summer night, but works just as well on a cool fall evening. Bright red fruit in general but the vintages can show through nicely as well. The 18s show great fruit and a ready for drinking anytime with some earthy undertones. The quality is so consistent as well. — 3 years ago
Drank over the course of three days; just like Mufasa, this fine drop from Anjou was dignified and imposing until the end. Surprised that any sniff of oxidation - and there was near none - was in reality a welcomed influence. Would happily order a case of this medium bodied blend of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon. A mouthful of ripe strawberries and plums, a little perfume, low acid (but enough so it wasn’t flabby), soft tannins with a slightly jammy concentration at the tail. Confident this would be a pleasure to have any day, at any hour, meal or no meal, friends or no friends, in bed, at a table, or on the floor. A beautiful wine beautifully made. Bravo J. C.

2019 Best Extra Añejo Tequila from the Beverage Tasting Institute: "Gold color. Attractive aromas of cedar, caramel, crushed pineapple, eucalyptus-vanilla, and fine tea with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, complex, very long allspice, lime leaf, dried mango, smoke, and sea salt finish. Exotic aromas and superb integration make this the Cognac or Single Malt-lovers Tequila; a must-try." (04/2019) Distiller's note: "A distinct tequila, El Tesoro Paradiso® is slowly aged for five years in French oak ex-Cognac barrels. Created by Don Felipe Camarena in collaboration in with Alain Royer of A. de Fussigny Cognac, this unique tequila has an earthy taste with a hint of minerality, tropical characteristics, and sweet notes of butterscotch." — 3 years ago
Henry’s Seven is a full-bodied red blend, made from 66% Shiraz, 15 % Grenache, 10 % Mourvèdre (locally known as Mataro) and 9% Viognier. Affluent aromas of black cherry, dark plum, fig, cedar, black pepper, and clove on the nose; dusty and dry on the palate with integrated tannins. — 3 years ago
Meat and potatoes with balanced Napa Cab. Dark, dark red on the eye. The nose is full of blackberry, plum, oak and vanilla. The mouthfeel is powerful yet velvety with dark fruit, vanilla and a soft chocolaty finish. Young but precise Napa Cab, very enjoyable with a certain bravado. Cheers. — 3 years ago
