Santa Maria Valley Melon de Bourgogne 2016

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

A very nice #oldworld style of #melondborgogne The nose had nice intensity and restraint showing flowers, lemon, apples, and biscuit. The palate was ripe and rich but balanced well with refreshing acidity. Med complexity with wet stone, flowers, yellow pear and Meyer lemon. Yum! #lieuxdit #santabarbara #biennacido #california #loirevalley #muscadet #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago

Platt Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Heading to an #oldworld style with some characteristics of good quality #burgundy Med + intensity on the nose with sweet red and black fruit. Great complexity on the nose as well as the palate with delicious spice and mineral notes. The structure was firm but refined and higher alcohol was felt. The length was good. #littorai #sonomacoast #pinotnoir #california #newworld #ctbucklinwine — 5 years ago

Pale straw hue with moderate tearing. Nose has fresh citrus, lemon peel, and ripe cantaloupe notes. White flowers, such as lily and gardenias. Delicate buttery aromas. Crisp on palate with more pronounced wet slate and stone elements alongside fresh stone fruit and citrus. Medium finish. Vintage 2015. 13.5% ABV. #grandvindebourgogne #montagny #aupieddumontchauve #whiteburgundy #chardonnay #oldworld #côtechalonnaise — a year ago

@Vanessa D noticed your notes are more descriptive following your wine class


@Dennis P. The class teaches a tasting method that can be applied consistently to assess different wines. I’m trying to adopt most of the steps and am documenting the results here 😊

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

Ribera Del Duero Tempranillo 2014

Deep purple hue with some garnet. Extraction on the glass and medium-plus tearing. Nose offers black fruit, such as fresh blackberries, black cherry, and currant notes; also molasses, clove, spice, cured meat, and vegetal notes. Tartness and acidity on the palate, lending balance. Also strong tannins with anise and dusty leather notes on the palate. Vintage 2014. 15% ABV. #aalto #riberadelduero #riberadelduerowine #tintofino #spanishwine #oldworld #oakagedwine #meseta #winewednesday #winedownwednesdays — a year ago

Appellation Collection Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

In much better condition than I thought it would be and not at all representative of the #vintage1997 On the leaner side some with elements of the #oldworld Well balanced and nice complexity. Eucalyptus, mint, bell pepper, graphite, and dark fruit dominated. Lively and enjoyable finish. Drink now #beringer #knightsvalley #cabernetsauvignon #sonoma #california #ribeye #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

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
