2010 Wild Horse Cabernet Sauvignon

Paso Robles more

Initially nose of leather and some berries. More berries on the palette, with slight tannin, suggesting that it will last another year. However, overall the wine was just OK, not fantastic.

Black cherry on the nose and palette. Full-bodied. Wish we had more. Only 200 cases were made.

Agree with Sonomacoaster. Paired well with pork tenderloin/cranberry apricot preparation. Should last into this year easily.

Not as good as the last bottle, as the richness of the fruit has lessened considerably.

Pleasant. Very light and lemony. However, I admit that there are less expensive wines that I would prefer to this one.

Had discovered this previously while in Canada. A nice alternative to ice wine, but a bit less lush in flavor and texture.

Seems to be fading more quickly than last year's vintage. Recommend drinking up soon.

2012 Michel-Schlumberger Chardonnay La Brume Benchland Wine Estate

Dry Creek Valley more

12/18/2015 - RMapou Likes this wine: 89 points

Of the M-S Chardonnays at different price levels, this is turning into our favorite. It has clearly matured over time into a buttery chardonnay, with subtle oak, vanilla, and pear. Sometimes this is exactly what you want.

Slightly dryer then their Off Dry Riesling. Also surprisingly high alcohol for a Riesling – 13.5%. But refreshing overall.

2012 Tallulah Chardonnay Orchard Avenue

Totally agree with KennyD, who has described the wine very well (and better than I can). I noticed flavors of pear and vanilla, with just subtle oak. I enjoy finding wines in this price range that provide this degree of enjoyment. I snagged a half case from WTSO (13.99) as soon as I saw it, having a single bottle of the 2011 left. Will be interesting to compare the two, as I think 2012 is a bit better.

Started this one without chilling. Served at 65, it showed more fruit than the first, which I had chilled. Very clear strawberry on the nose and palette.

Slightly funky smell, but not evident in the taste. Full fruit with no tannin. Much better than other bordeaux in this price range that I have tasted. However, by the next day, it was showing oxidation, so it should be drunk in one night.

An OK wine, with flavors of apple, slight citrus, and oak, but not of the quality of M-S's vineyard or AVA wines.
