Espectacle del Montsant

Montsant Garnacha 2014

Another world famous Wine Nerd Herd Virtual Tasting this time on the docket was Spanish wines. This 100% Grarnacha showed in full force...caramel and violets on the nose-delicate in so many ways, not overly oaked, such fine balance and precision that speaks of a hybrid of old and new world. Drinks well now, yet has many many years ahead of it. @thewinenerdherd — 19 days ago

What an unfortunate name. I'm thinking of coming up with a brand called Clueless Brats #MeToo. The wine was fine but forgettable — 2 years ago

The wine is nice and crisp. What’s forgettable is your unnecessarily scathing “review.”

Moone-Tsai Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

It was great but the Myraid Cab was better and not as good as the last time I had it

Now that said I would not be embarrassed or kick it out of the bed (excuse the analogy in these days of
#metoo) but just unfortunately had a stronger competitor last night

Still I think the wine is beautiful with a highly structured palette and silky tannins made it smooth but lacking in the boldness I wanted and the finish was not extraordinary

That said I love it and recommend it and even though it will cellar I am not sure it will get better so drink it if you got it

Screaming Eagle

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

My wife wanted a "decent" cab for our 14th anniversary....so I pulled a bottle from this small "unheralded" Oakville producer. These really shine with some age.

1.5 hour decant(good amount of fine sediment). Served about 5 degrees above cellar temperature. An impressive inky dark reddish/purple color with little signs of aging. On the nose: Bursting from the glass are Plum, creme brulee, wet forest floor, touch of stewed meat, ends with a quick hit of chocolate coffee. Taste: Velvety and elegant...red cherry, chocolate, dried herbs, spice. A soft, dense wine, with tannins that have sweetened but are still there ready to go for the long haul (but drinking fine right now!!)...slight alcohol burn on the finish.

Central Coast Viognier 2016

An impressive representation of Viognier. Exotic nose of pineapple and citrus fruits is joined on the palate. While lacking acidity, the mid-palate is focused and precise. Displays great texture and minerality. We aligned on the rating. — a year ago
