Red sweet fruits on the nose. Still fairly structured, needs some time to flesh out.

Borgogno dinner (Bosk at the ShangriLa Hotel, Toronto): Tobacco and leather nose. Less acidic than the other vintages, which let the sweetness of the fruit shine through. Nicely balanced, softer and rounder than the others, but still has grippy tannins. My rank: #2.

Nose wasn't as opulent as some of the other young Tuscans, but this one was showing some nice liqourice. Sweet fruit and dusty tannin on the palate. This is nice but needs a lot of time.

Rich gold colour. Mature, oxidized, nutty and yeasty nose. Based on previous notes, the palate may have mellowed somewhat: it's tart and dry but not excessively so, with good body and round mouth feel, and notes of toasted bread and underlying green apple. Fairly short finish. Paired well with sushi, but drank well on its own, too.

Just basic fruity Rioja, with no interest. No offsetting acidity or tannin or structure of any kind. Fruit juice. I cannot see 89 points for this wine. My tasting note says: "poor quality".

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend more

Slightly subdued nose compared to the 05 le gay, but the taste was incredible. Ripe blueberry, some astringency, long finish and some grainy tannins.

Surprisingly approachable, this will be stellar to those who are patient.

Cherry and barnyard aromas, this seemed to open up with time. The palate was rustic, with grippy tannins, ripe red fruits and a medium finish.

A bit tough and young. Cedar, fresh oak (not toasty or vanilla, fresh oak wood), dark fruit.

    7/2/2013 8:13:00 PM - Any recommendations as to when to drink this? Do you think the oak will integrate with some time?
