Château Le Prieure

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

This was lovely. While still a baby, i needed to try this. Big nose after an hour of being open. Luscious mouthfeel but the tannins are tight, as they should be This could be a true gem in 5+ years. — 4 years ago

Deeelicious! says the white-winer of the bunch. Opus One also represented a few blessed calm moments in a whirlwind of family commotions. On to Opus Two!

Maxville Lake Winery

Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2014

Wild cherry and cocoa on the nose. Surprisingly fruit forward — heavy black raspberries and cherries. Medium bodied tannic structure with a slightly astringent mouthfeel. Nice finish. — 4 years ago

Dank... super concentrated orange albillo. Reminiscent of Georgian skin contact wines, overflowing with ginger and orange peel and spices and dark honey. — 4 years ago
