Solid #newworld #merlot from #spain from #somontano it has a purity of fruit and is so purely Merlot. It is delicious and we drank the whole bottle in a sitting and wanted more and is very reasonable for the price #winesfromspain — a year ago

Bannockburn Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011


Unfortunately it was oxidized. I thought #newworld #newzealand and #screwcap even if it’s 2011 it should be perfect...not the case. It was gone. Optimum Storage — 2 years ago

Santa Barbara County Nebbiolo 2010

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Very successful #newworld #nebbiolo Pale red. Med + intensity and complexity showing flowers, bright red, leather, and mushrooms. Firm and balanced structure. Great tension and complexity. Med finish that warmed up the throat. Drinking so well now but should age well for a few more years. #palmina #santabarbara #california #usa #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago

Pora Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2005

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Seems to be in a closed phase or the warm vintage may have gotten the better of them. The nose was calm with nothing really showing except some ripe red and blue fruit. On the palate the ripe fruit was confirmed moving more towards the #newworld in style. the structure was faded. Decent length. #produttoridelbarbaresco #babaresco #nebbiolo #piedmont #italy #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago

Gravas Rojas Puente Alto Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Deep ruby, almost purple, hue with pink rim variation. Subtle color extraction on the glass. Nose offers fig jam, raspberry preserves, and blackberry bramble with sweet tobacco, oak, cedar, nutmeg, vanilla, roasted green bell pepper, oregano, and peat notes. Palate is dry and consistent with the nose. More noticeable oak on the palate and soft tannins. Love this Chilean Cab! Vintage 2015. ABV 14.5%.

@Shawn Thompson thank you, Sir 🙏 It was truly so enjoyable. Cheers!


Walton Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Began as black olives for miles but betrayed its fruit roots quickly enough, with baked black cherry, and a black plum mash; black currant and gingerbread-mocha notes sparkling on its grainy veneer. Torn violet petals. Lots of sediment, or pigmented tartaric crystals. Super elegant and fleshy mouthfeel is perhaps its most compelling nuance. Black currant, soft leather, smoke, a scribble of pencil, snuffed wick, teak, and black tea. Bittersweet chocolate remains like a cloud, suspended while most aspects fade. Leather friction.

Diamond Creek Vineyards

Gravelly Meadow Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Vibrant red color with med concentration. Fresh red and black fruit on the nose with lots of red floral notes. Complex and light palate with balanced structure. This wine is in great shape and more #oldworld in style than #newworld #diamondcreek #cabernetsauvignon #napavalley #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Crowd pleaser #pasoroblescab. Fruit-forward style but well balanced, really quaffable. Lots of dark fruit, faint spice notes and soft tannins. I’m picky on my #newworld style wines but I like this one. — a year ago

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2015

Crú Flight N° 12: Tour De France 3 - Definitely the biggest of the three, concentrated black fruit, laid-back oak and some spice that starts to develop once it’s rested for a while. Tannins are muscular and bring a long finish. The style is more like a #newworld #syrah - think California or Australia. — 2 years ago

Antica (Antinori)

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


I loved this #oldworld #newworld blend to create a marvelous #newcalifornia obvious long maceration with deep ruby color, intense primary aromas of dark cherries, cassis, mint and capsicum, secondary of dark chocolate and tertiary of sage or ash. The tannins are very soft and the oak and alcohol are very balanced and integrated with the whole of the wine. Can age. Drink now until 2030 — 4 years ago

Had this at an Antinori tasting last week. I was equally impressed.
