2011 Tablas Creek Roussanne

Paso Robles more

7/5/2015 - urban_dk wrote: 85 points

An unorthodox Roussanne, displaying strong minerality and tart citrus. The stone fruit component I associate with the grape is lacking. Not my idea of what a white Rhone varietal should taste like.

Some exotic tropical fruit, along with mineral, almond, and a hint of petrol. Well rounded, balanced; enjoyable.

2007 Tenuta delle Terre Nere Etna Il Quadro delle Rose Feudo di Mezzo

Etna DOC Nerello Mascalese more

7/5/2015 - PaulusLoZebra Likes this wine: 94 points

I took this rom the cellar by mistake, I had wanted a different Terre Nere, but once I had it in the dining room I went ahead and opened it anyway. My first instincts were right, it is still not ready, consistent with my previous notes and with Jerwin1943. That said, it is evolving, even if slowly, as sweet floral elements have become more prominent in the nose, which remains very complex, even as the palate remains tight and austere. To summarize, even if the nose has become a bit more Burgundy-like, I would say that the palate has become more Barolo-like, with a huge structure of tannins, acid and minerals. It remains very long, vinous and flavorful. A huge, satisfying and complex wine that is nevertheless very young. Much more approachable one day later.

To be clear, my high rating of this wine based on its inherent quality, structure and what it will become in a few years, I am not recommending it so highly for current drinking.

Gamey fruit and briars on the nose. Hard to identify what I get on the palate. Maybe a little caramelized sugar, but no real fruit. Too young?

2012 Martinelli Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch Water Trough Vineyard

Green Valley more

7/5/2015 - Francophile1 Likes this wine: 95 points

An incredible expression of the Pinot Noir grape. While it is very new world in its upfront style, this wine also carries with it black truffled mushroom, wild game, and forest floor. This wine combines the best of Sonoma Pinot with a Cote de Nuits elegance, I love this wine. If you can find it, buy as much as you can.

Tremendous pure relatively young Syrah, all strengths and no weaknesses. Smooth, voluptuous, great fruit and balanced, with moderate juicy tannins, long finish. Just great!

2001 Domaine Santa Duc Gigondas Prestige des Hautes Garrigues

Red Rhone Blend more

7/4/2015 - Anonymous wrote: 92 points

Sweet bouquet with ripe red and some dark berries, a lot of garrigue, sweet spices and some sweet licorice. The same impressions on the palate. Good acidity and melted tannin. A beautiful and expressive wine which is completely ready now, but there is no extreme hurry. Probably wise to drink it over the next 2 – 3 years.

Fairly deep watermelon colored. Grenache, Syrah, Clairette, cinsault blend. The oldest pink of the tasting and losing some of its brightness and almost finishes with a hint of sweetness. Drink up.

2013 J. Lohr Pinot Noir Falcon's Perch

Monterey County more

7/5/2015 - TK Mastres wrote: 89 points

This is clearly one of the very best deals in the wine world. The 13 needs a bit more time to open up than did the 12 but still there is a nose of ripe cherries that continues into the front palate. The mid palate shows rich red fruit with a bit of astringency that is somewhat off putting. Finish is rich and supple. Again amazing value for an 11-12$ wine.

2003 Taylor (Fladgate) Porto Vintage

Port Blend more

7/4/2015 - dcwino wrote: 97 points

I am always coming back to the conclusion that this is a darn 100-year port. Still incredibly youthful and no sign of maturing. Expressive nose displaying blueberry liqueur, cassis, bitter chocolate, dark spices, a hint of smoke, ink and earth. What impresses me once again is the great precision and balance. Incredible concentration, blueberry liqueur driven palate impression, unctuous yet silky, strong presence of acidity, no noticeable tannins due to opulent concentrated fruits and incredible long sweet finish. It is drinking beautifully in very primary way. Considering how unpopular port and Sauternes are, this represents some of the greatest values out there.

The wine has medium acidity. It smells like cranberry, thyme, stoniness and bell pepper. The body is medium. It tastes like blackberry. The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. The wine has smooth texture.

This wine exemplifies perfectly what I love about St. Estèphe - the earthiness, the structure, the slightly understated fruit (or berries, rather). And the youthfulness of this wine a dozen years after the vintage is just staggering. I just wish I had a few more bottles stashed away...

For a Zin, it was pretty good. Wasn't too sweet, didn't taste like a port. But, 15.1%, ugh. Wasn't "hot" tho, I didn't really notice the alcohol.

2010 Delas Frères St. Joseph Cuvée Francois de Tournon

Syrah more

7/5/2015 - whitmanlholt Likes this wine: 92 points

Popped and poured. This is a vibrant red wine, one with concentrated staining capacity. On the nose, I get some smokey pepper and beef stew. In the mouth, this is lively, with some medium fruit and nice spice. The finish is a bit astringent, however, revealing the latent fierceness of this wine. Overall, this is somewhat rustic (but not in a bad way) -- a food/company wine more than a solo sipping wine. 92 points.

NV Camille Savès Champagne Brut Grand Cru Rosé

7/5/2015 - KeithAkers wrote: 92 points

Nose: There is a very perfumed nature to the nose with strawberries, cranberries, roses, citrus, and chalky minerals.

Taste: Medium bodied with medium/high acdidity. There is a creaminess to the feel along with strawberries, cranberries, baking spices, crushed rocks, roses and some citrus.

Overall: This is a gorgeous NV Rose. It's well balanced with a feminine side.
