Crianza Tempranillo Blend 2009

Vintage 2009 - Dutch bottling by Roel Berger Roermond - Navarra from tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon and merlot - vieilli en fut chêne - this wine is tremendously juicy, spicy and fruity. Cherries in smell, also leather, chocolate impression, and a spicy taste. I love this frivolous wine, it gives enormous hapinness. #tempranillo #merlot #cabernetsauvignon #navarra #spain #dutchbottling With steak and mushrooms. — 17 days ago

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

This took about 30 minutes to wake up and then it shut down after about 2 hours. Medium intensity with nice complexity. Ripe black fruit and graphite. Structure was beginning to fade on palate. Full body and fine balance. Medium finish. #saintemilion #merlot #cabernetfranc #chateaumontlabert #rightbank #bordeaux #ctbucklinwine — 5 months ago

Chateau Grand Jouan

Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 - got this wine as a present. I like it: a honest petit #Bordeaux from the vineyards between Dordogne and Garonne. Indeed: Entre Deux Mers. Frivolous bouquet with predominant #merlot and both #cabernetsauvignon and #cabernetfranc, smooth drinking. Does exactly what it is made for: gives pleasure! — 2 months ago

Château Lassalle

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 - crimson rim, very dark colour, very young and less accessible than other Bordeaux I tasted from 14. There are promising hints of cherries in the smell, laurel, leather-tones and a hint of chocolate and mocca. Powerfull in taste. Partly made of 'vieilles vignes' and one can taste this. Good concentration. Promising domain. #bordeaux #graves #vieillesvignes #cabernetsauvignon #merlot — 4 months ago

Château Turcaud

Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

The greatness of 2015 for well under $20. Lots of stuffing; ripe, structured, mocha, gravel, cigar wrapper. Proper claret. #turcaud #cabernetsauvignon #merlot #bordeauxblend — 4 months ago

Château Milens

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2010


#stemilion #grandcruclassé Deep ruby, needed to open to decant, tight at beginning, then dark jammy cherries and plums, seems pure #Merlot, dark chocolate and hint of pepper. Very little tertiary notes, a little savoury sweet marinated meat. Dry, soft entry, medium acidity, pronounced silky smooth tannins, high alcohol. Full bodied and medium+ flavor intensity. Very good. I feel like this wine is overtly alcoholic and lacking intensity of aromas and flavors. There's no precision, no standout complexity or character because it's 14.5 alcohol and it seems like it could use a little mojo or funk. Very sleek very sexy, whatevers, but I'm digging the slightly green and funky Lalande that I'm tasting side by side that's half the price. — 5 months ago
