Notorious

Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Decadent #mountveeder #cabernetsauvignon from Nice Wines. 75% Cab, 16% #stmacaire, 8% #merlot - beautifully balanced full-bodied red. Hedonistic blackberry liqueur, plum, touch of tobacco, dried mint on the nose. Beautifully integrated oak, lush acidity to balance out that big fruit and fine tannins that build on the tongue over repeated sips. For the $60 member price, this is my idea of awesome Napa mountain Cab. — 19 days ago

Happy
#ValentinesDay Inky purple color with some sediment left in the bottle when I decanted it. The nose has black fruit and chocolate. There was a little barnyard that blew off with time in the glass. This is a meaty wine with #junkinthetrunk. The palate has jammy black fruit and a little spice. It paired perfectly with #reversesearedribeye. 9 out of 10 #inkyindulgence

ED Edmundo Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Bright #argentina #cabernetsauvignon with strong bramble fruit character. Uncorking reveals a lot of vanilla from oak aging but extended decanting mostly airs this off leaving some cocoa and fruit aromas. Deliciously bright acidity on the palate, semisweet chocolate and medium roast coffee notes leading into generous tannins that linger in the finish. Outstanding QPR here for $8.50 at Total Wine. — 6 months ago

Simple ripe red and black fruit. Almost no secondary or tertiary aromas or flavors. Acidity seems unbalanced, seems high because it lacks the body and the fruit to balance it. #bolgheri #cabernet #cabernetsauvignon — 4 months ago

Château Bellevue

Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

This is a savory #bordeaux blend - 65% #merlot, 25% #cabernetsauvignon and 10% #cabernetfranc - reserved cassis, black olive, charcuterie nose. Palate continues with that demure dark fruit, leather, vegetal notes but missing some acidity and concentration; finishing with sturdy tannins that linger. Great wine to pair with red meat dishes. Satisfying QPR for ~$12 at Total Wine. — 4 months ago

Château Tour de Pez

Cru Bourgeois St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

9.0

Medium(+) intensity aromas of black fruit (plum, cherry and prune) with secondary aromas of oak (cedar, smoke and dark chocolate) and just beginning to show some tertiary aromas and flavors of tobacco leaf and prunes. The wine has medium(+) acidity, medium(+) fine grained textural tannins and medium(+) body. The finish is medium (+) and while slightly grippy, those tannins are ripe and it’s that structure which will give it the ability to age in bottle for another 5/7 years. There is enough fruit and defined aromas and flavors to balance the acidity and the tannins which want to be the protagonista of this wine. A solid Claret. #saintestephe #bordeaux #grandvindebordeaux #cabernet #cabernetsauvignon #merlot and just 5% #petitverdot — 6 months ago

Corison

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Solid Napa cab, with violet nose. Graphite, currant, black cherry, espresso, and blackberry, remarkable, chewy tannins, and structure. Details lacking as it was the last wine and accompanied cherry pie. But made a great impression. .

Falesco

Vitiano Rosso Umbria Sangiovese Blend 2015

#umbria IGP blend of 34% #merlot, 33% #cabernetsauvignon and 33% #sangiovese - nicely concentrated prominent bramble fruit + earthy spice on the nose, well-balanced acidity, dark fruit and soft tannins on the palate. After a day in the wine fridge some prune notes suggest it’s fading after 5 years but helluva buy at Costco for ~$8. — 6 months ago
