X Cuvée Anonyme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

Uninterrupted rim saturation. Dark plum with rich pressed blackberry aromas; Applewood charcoal smoke, suede, and charred bacon. Violets and safe vie for recognition through a textbook panoply. Black and red plum bounce in the thick blackberry, with thyme and rosemary now, black pepper dusted grilled meat, dried lavender and sapling oak, blue spruce nettle, morel, pencil shavings, cottonseed, cassis, and black currant. There is an iron feel sifting through fine earth dust that seems to re-emerge on the finish. This is a real beauty with a stunning combo of finess and sinewy, farm strength. Sun-bronzed and Hands-on, she is a perfect assimilation of her environment. Great look!

Château Gloria

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Enjoyed this solid Bordeaux at @theodeon. It showed both fruit and tannins. The deep dense color and rich flavor backed the plum and dark berry fruitiness with the right amount of savory. #frenchwines #bordeau #bordeauxandburgers #bordeaux #chateaugloria #saintjulien #redwine #redwines #frenchredwine @theodeonnyc — 23 days ago

Château Gloria

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

2008 Chateau Gloria from Medoc on the Left Bank. Blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. Very nice deep purple/garnet in the glass. Black fruit and cassis, joined by layers of cedar, liquorice and tobacco on the palate. This is a rich, ripe full bodied wine with well integrated tannins that deliver a nice finish. Could easily last another 10 years. Nice bottle of Bordeaux for about $50. Sadly, I only had a single bottle.

Les Darons Languedoc Grenache Blend 2015

#frenchwine #redwine #languedoc #frenchredwine the #grenache, #syrah and #carignan are having a fruity party in my mouth. The perfect wine to drink at this transitional time of the year. Notes of Strawberry and raspberry provide the foundation and topped off with a hint of minerals. Very affordable, 2 thumbs up for this one! 👍🏻👍🏻 #lesdarons well done #jeffcarrel — a year ago
