boerne wine club provence 2015: Served blind, opened 12-24 hours previously. Sweet sappy, fruit on the nose, but then some nice minerally restraint on the palate. No rush here. really quite nice.

2004 Château Simone Palette

Red Rhone Blend more

7/5/2015 - cos65 Likes this wine: NR

boerne wine club provence 2015: Served blind.
Somewhat murky dark mulberry colored.
Most, including me, thought it was an old (25+ yo) Bordeaux, with leathery, gamey flavors, but then you get these sort of fermenting strawberry flavors like an old Chateauneuf which pointed in the right direction.

A new wine for me and the most interesting of the tasting.

boerne wine club provence 2015: My blind and the most polarizing wine of the night. Half hated it and others loved it.
I thought it had some nice smoky bacon, blackberry aromas, but a little off balance at this point. Needs time. Our French contingent all thought this was something from California.

boerne wine club provence 2015: Still dark blue purple. Amazingly fresh blueberry flavors with heaping amounts of dry extract. Absolutely lovely. Cannot believe this is 17 years old. My favorite red in this limited field.

boerne wine club provence 2015: Yes, someone snuck in an Italian Rosato.
Mostly Barbera, I think.
Bright Pink, with bright strawberry bubblegum flavors, richer than the Provencal roses, very tasty and easy going down. Another perfect party wine.

2012 Domaine de la Mordorée Tavel Rosé La Dame Rousse

Red Rhone Blend more

7/5/2015 - cos65 Likes this wine: NR

boerne wine club provence 2015: Light salmon colored. Clearly the most distinctive Rose of the night. Big rich,very lovely, and clearly the crowd's favorite with one lone dissenter (me). Clearly the most alcoholic wine and I sensed a bit of this hotness. This almost seemed a bit more in line with an SQN or Lillian rose (which I do love) than the rest of the Provencal roses tonight. Just an outlier in this lineup.

boerne wine club provence 2015: 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.

Served blind on the Fourth of July, I assumed American, and all I could come up with was Zinfandel. Very low tannins, lots of in your face raspberry fruit, lowish acid. But no, French IGT Malbec.

Very easy going party wine

Pale, almost colorless. Some nice peach apricot flavor. Pleasant enough quaff, but fairly simple and could benefit from a touch more acidity. Serve very chilled.

An eclectic night in Maryland (Potomac Maryland): Ethereal stuff. Incredible aromatics, orange peel, toffee, caramel. Without the heat. Definitely worth a try. And since the aromatics do all the work, a half an ounce in the right glass is all you need.

An eclectic night in Maryland (Potomac Maryland): Light gold.
Nice aromatic Muscat and slight dill flavors. Almost a hint of sweetness and very round after an infancy with very bright almost tart flavors. I'd enjoy this now for it's loveliness. ( though the '09 was still an infant a year ago)
