Vieilles Vignes Aux Beaumonts Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

On to the red wine! Too young but I wanted to try the first bottle of the batch for a baseline. And there's unsurprisingly oak, but Vosne spices too underneath, black cherry, hint of earth, touch of reduction...think the raw material is here, and it will get much better, just needs 20 years! #rockthered #letsgocaps #capspens #openthewhoopass — 3 years ago

@Billy L. yeah, I'd say if you have multiple bottles of them all, go ahead and check in. Sample them on open, but '05 probably still needs a decant, especially the GCs...it was a big year, I wouldn't be surprised if there was 200% oak on some, if not most, of those wines.

@Berg - Sounds like a plan, much appreciate your opinion, I'll post them as I "sample" & look forward to more of your Burgundy & Napa Cabernet posts! Thx again, Cheers!

I know you'll win today Caps. #rockthered #letsgocaps #capspens #playoffs #burgundy #dugatpyistheshit

Really good bottle of Burg, young, powerful, black cherry, barnyard, earth, but still very big tannins...once they resolve this will be even better.

Wirtz Vineyard Edelzwicker

Another interesting wine tonight! Elderflower, vanilla, spices, limoncello, rainwater.

Not red, but can't hurt. Tighten it up in the 2nd and 3rd Caps. Holtby great as always.

Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Band aids, green peppers, raspberry, tobacco, very forward tannins still, lots of grip, but so good. Couple more decades of life I'm sure.

And do or die Caps, already in the hole 1-0

Meh, I know better than to get truly excited about a DC team #notsurprised

The jersey is again packed away until next season :)

Les Saint Georges Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2007

After the failure of big domestic red last game, we're back to my favorite; good Burgundy :)

And this is good...I still think 07 is fairly overlooked, I've enjoyed most I've had, and prices are still rational. Somewhat.

Right up my alley here. Great nose of earth, meat, vanilla, saffron, cherry, umami soy, spices, and an interesting hint of pachouli I dont think I've ever found in a wine before...just good stuff. Pretty palate too, lingering savory finish. Smooth, medium tannins that grip, a ways to go before they fully integrate.

Not gonna hate on the Caps. But if you don't win Wednesday with Letang off the ice, you don't deserve to win the series. #PensCapsIsGoodForEveryone

Opening night! Rocking the non domestic red this season, why not 👍 nice way to start, all the Burgundy highlights I want, spiced cherry, black tea, barnyard and wet leaves. Time will only make this prettier at this point.

Three Twins Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Big domestic red, a red lightsaber, and the game. Let's do this. #rockthered #Maythe4thbewithyou #letsgocaps #rockthered #capspens #starwars

So the wine: distinctly red, not purple drank! Raspberry, maraschino cherry, rose, graphite, Graham crackers, hint of green, smoke, tomato...palate comes off a little hot, tannins are smooth, but a ways to maturity I'd say.

The color here is distinctly red, not purple drank!

Saxum Vineyards

Terry Hoage Vineyard Syrah Blend 2010

Back to a big domestic red for the Caps :) Hint of smoked meat, oak, pepper, an almost skunkiness?, root veggies, quite hot on the nose, with big rough tannins. This comes off much younger than its 6 years, curious what this does in 20 years. Interesting wine I think, but it's one of those that I much prefer the nose to the palate.
