Intense nose. Salty, brackish, Sherry-like. Spirit. At first I thought it lacked acid, and then I realized I am an idiot. This is bracing and powerful. Love this!

2009 A.P. Vin Syrah Trick Torrin Vineyard

Paso Robles more

5/4/2015 - Eric Likes this wine: 94 points

Wow, this has REALLY come into its own over the past three years! Smoke, licorice, tar and florals. A whiff of heat is there, so keep it nicely cool. The palate is unreal. Thick, silky and smooth. This is incredibly palate coating and round with an amazing interplay of red fruit, smoked meat and soy. This is really exceptionally pleasurable right now. There is a ton of great stuffing, and this feels like it has several good years ahead. I am looking forward to the next one.

2013 Cave du Rhodan MerSy

Salgesch Red Blend more

5/2/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

Fairly modern and quite enjoyable. Smoky campfire from the Syrah (and perhaps some barrique, and with clean, tart red berry flavors. At once fresh and bright with enough depth and duskiness to be quite pleasing.

A visit to Hofkellerei des Fürsten von Liechtenstein (Vaduz, Liechtenstein): 18 months in barrique. 64% Zweigelt and 36% Merlot. Big, wild berries. Menthol. Tarry and powerful. Quite assertive. A touch of reduction.

1988 Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

4/25/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

Bordeaux in Bern (Bern, Switzerland): Heavenly as always. Deep color. Mouthwatering acidity. Apple cider, honey, tangerine, tropical fruit. I dare say this might have benefited from significant decanting. It was not as forthcoming as we hoped for. It was certainly a rather awesome wine but not the "religious experience" that one hopes for with a great Yquem.

1990 Château Léoville Poyferré

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

4/25/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

Bordeaux in Bern (Bern, Switzerland): Horsey and ripe, this has lots of beef blood and sanguine notes, followed by sweet cherry and tobacco. Really ripe and savory on the nose and palate. This didn't move the earth to the extent that 1990 Poyferré can in my experience, maybe a bit too bretty, but it was still quite delicious.

1985 Château Léoville Las Cases

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

4/25/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

Bordeaux in Bern (Bern, Switzerland): Very mineral and iron on first impression. With some swirling you get the textbook lead pencil aromas, tobacco, mineral, graphite. This is pretty much on point. Perhaps it is not the best 1985 LLC that I have enjoyed, but it was awfully powerful and pleasurable in that brawny and brooding style of Las Cases.

1988 Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

4/25/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

Bordeaux in Bern (Bern, Switzerland): Incredibly intellectual. Mineral, mint and tobacco, a stunning Pauillac nose. Really nice spine to this, leafy and minty. It was actually a perfect counterpoint to a far more voluptuous 1990 Haut-Brion. As as always the case with Lafite, you had to "work for it" a bit, and this was showing beautifully.

Bordeaux in Bern (Bern, Switzerland): Caramel, brown sugar and shiitake mushroom. This was certainly quite enjoyable, but given prior examples and the overall context of the tasting, this was ultimately a bit disappointing.
