2011 Yannick Amirault Bourgueil La Coudraye

Cabernet Franc more

5/20/2015 - ManuKey Does not like this wine: 82 points

Au nez typique de Cabernet Franc, de fruits rouges à noyau, note de poivron, humus, épices. En bouche l'acidité est élevé, la texture un peu mince, manque un peu de charme et de rondeur. L'amertume persiste en finale... Même avis que la dernière bouteille éclusée il y a un an, et même constat le lendemain... Ce ne sera pas un rachat pour moi... Je me demande si les bouteilles n'auraient pas eu chaud (achetées à la même SAQ /même date).

PnP, drank over 2 days. Clear red color. Cherries and red fruit on the palate. Not that complex. Maybe too young. Medium finish.

2005 Pax Syrah Walker Vine Hill

Russian River Valley more

5/24/2015 - cnichelson Likes this wine: 93 points

Dark inky purple color. Pepper licorice and dark fruits. Popped and poured and went great with short ribs in a spicy mole sauce. Can drink now or wait a little bit I think. Tannins firm still and a little chalky. A really nice wine for big food.

2009 Reynvaan Family Vineyards Syrah In the Rocks

Walla Walla Valley more

5/25/2015 - kdubler Likes this wine: NR

This wine was hard to pinpoint down. Had an amazing nose with notes of leather and beef jerky. Was dark in color but clear. On the pallet it was muted at first but came alive after about an hour. I would decant this for 1-3 hours if you plan on drinking it soon. This was never a fruit focused driven new world wine, but instead kept with the earthy undertones which I love. Put this in a line up of Northern Rhone's and I'm quite sure many people will mistake it. One of the top American Syrah's with out a doubt.

1986 Ravenswood Pickberry

Sonoma Mountain Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/24/2015 - Office Rat Likes this wine: 93 points

As I recall, this was a massive, almost undrinkable brute in its youth. Now it is still deep maroon, almost opaque, loamy/mushroom with some iodine on the nose, full body with crisp acid, well balanced.

This wine has hit its prime with oak and tanins smoothing out perfectly. Big, slightly jammy and very well balanced. Give it 1/2 hour in decanter - it is worth the wait.

1979 Château Pavie

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/20/2015 - hkm520240 wrote: 95 points

Tasted blind. Dark ruby and vibrant hues.
Fresh and vibrant, lifted bouquet of floral, blackcurrant, dark cherry, sweet spice & licorice. Elegant and showing nice fruits, amazingly holding so well so fresh.
Nice entry, still robust, young with loads of fruits. Blackcurrant, dark cherry, spice and earthy undertones. Vibrant acidity lead to a long persistent finish. Seamless and harmonious.
What a sensational effort as it tastes like a good 80s or even 90s. Judging that Château Pavie has not made its name in those days.
This is so impressive and voted as WOTN unanimously by the group.

Un bon rosé sur la fraise des champs, la fleur d'oranger, avec une touche minérale et florale. La bouche est fraiche, avec une saine amertume, sur une jolie texture, laissant une impression iodé/saline en finale. Très bien! (Un peu moins de profondeur que le 2012).

Dark red. Lots of Cab Franc spiciness on the nose. Elegant, tannins starting to soften, great balance, red fruit oriented, really does integrate everything well. I really like it for the balance and harmony it possesses. Bridges the strengths of Bordeaux and Cali Cab.

2007 Scherrer Winery Pinot Noir 'Big Brother'

Sonoma Coast more

5/25/2015 - DougLee wrote: 91 points

Dark ruby color. Nose of blackberry, raspberry, anise, violets, earth. Lots of dark plum, black raspberry, and Bing cherry on the drenching palate with notes of moca, cola, and even a bit of tar thrown in. Moderate acidity and structured tannins leading to a very concentrated, satisfyingly grippy finish. Big, robust pinot, very much reflecting its California roots.

This wine has evolved in the past couple of years and taken on more weight. The fruit has become more rounded and pronounced. Drinking well. Not memorable but very nice and a good value.
