Tasting Notes: Weekly Roundup

Happy Friday! Before we celebrate the coming weekend, we want to look back on drinks the Delectable community enjoyed and consumed this week. We've gathered a handful of reviews and notes that caught our eye. From detailed notes to standout photos, the Delectable community was busy this week, and there are so many great posts to read. Mark your favorites and pick up a bottle to try this weekend. Cheers!

Arcanum

Toscana Red Blend 2010

60% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot & 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Nose has spring rose, rain moistened red raspberry, black currant and fresh sage.

Palate has lightly tannic blackberry, wet leather, ripe black currant, cigar box, wet clay and tarry black cherry.

Paired with a long cooked Bolognese sauce over fettuccine. Decanted ~3hr, more time in the decanter would benefit. Future bottles can be 2022+

Happy Father's Day 2019 to all. Today I'm posting pictures of our kids, yes they are all furry, independent and somewhat self-interested. Two boys (8) and two girls (2), sisters, all rescued. They generally bring the utmost of joy to my life on a daily basis. It has been a rainy and relaxing day here, everyone is loving the slow pace of life today.

I think that Delectable needs to be able to tag cat+wine posts so that I can make a bookmark for felines.

Domaine Fernand Girard

La Garenne Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Fresh. Tons of minerals in this crisp, refreshing wine. Some pear/ light green apple. Acidity spot on. Rocked with fresh halibut. — 6 months ago

La Vigne du Louis Arbois Trousseau 2017

12.5%. Very very good. Hint of brett - tart and closed. But boy is this complex. Earthy, Kashmir red pepper, perhaps even a hint of tomatoes 🍅. Orange bitters on the back palate. Like silk much better than many Burgs I had in the last six months. From Max Kogod and I will buy the last bottle and the other cuvée from this producer best Trousseau I had in a long time! — 6 months ago

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rosé 2017

One of the world’s greats. A remember where you were when wine. It’s full and complete and symphonic, stimulating, and catalyst of imagery. Grounded sprawling Provençal herbs, white flowers fennel, and orange note. Sublime texture. Slippery, viscous, weighty, just barely verging in syrupy. Life moment for me. — 6 months ago
