I hope everyone has made it to weekend in good shape. Today I picked up the 2014 Château Phélan Ségur St. Estéphe. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot a typically beautiful St. Estéphe.

The nose is very expressive with notes of raspberries, blackberries, cherries, black plum, black currant, chocolate, herbs, coconut, violets and a nice earth note.

On the palate the nose is confirmed with black cherry, black raspberries, blackberry, black currant, a generous amount of green bell pepper, clove, graphite, light oak and earth.

This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + firm chewy tannins that leads to a long energetic finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Classic Bordeaux. Lots of black cassis, black cherry and graphite. Very young, needs 30 mins decanting. Finish is a bit bitter.

In 1805, Daniel Phelan, an Irish wine broker, acquired le Clos de Garamey, and was followed in 1810 by the acquisition of the Segur de Cabanac estate, creating the domain that remains today. Aromas and flavors of black cherry and blueberry with cacao, gentle oak and herb character. Firm grip on tannins, lingering this big wine to an earthy ending. Tight now give it some time, decanting helps if you must now!

On the nose is rich black fruit, black cherry, Blackberry, black plum, black currant, violets, licorice, vanilla, oak, graphite and loamy soil.

The palate has notes of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, green bell pepper, black pepper, licorice and violets.

This wine is full bodied with a velvety mouth feel and medium + acidity, medium + firm tannins that lead to a long enjoyable finish. Have a wonderful 4th of July tomorrow and please take extra care to be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Lovely wine, rich complex and better than the bottle I have before, full of black currents, soil, coffee and chocolate, medium to full body, good tannins, nice acidity and a pleasant long finish. My score 88, drink to 2024

Part of vertical. This year was 50/50 Cab/Merlot. A soft and really well balance wine. The kind of profile that I like.

Had as part of vertical. This is a 63% cab. Strong tannins, with hints of softness. Another five years...will be awesome.
