2010 Domaine Vindemio Ventoux Imagine

Red Rhone Blend more

7/22/2015 - PSirah Tampa Likes this wine: 92 points

Very young but an explosive wine is hiding in this bottle. It needs to age until 2018+. White pepper notes lead to a thin finish, but this wine should evolve beautifully.

Consumed at Berns in Tampa, FL. Still going strong; plenty of life left in this.

Well preserved bottle- popped and poured. Bright cherry fruit on the nose, soft tannins, and enough acid to hold the wine together. Definitely not getting better, but likely a few years of life left. Why wait- it's drinking great now?

2002 Vincent Arroyo Petite Sirah Greenwood Ranch

Napa Valley more

12/20/2014 - PSirah Tampa Likes this wine: 92 points

Popped and poured. A little Brett on the nose- not a problem for me. Bright and juicy fruit; hasn't faded at all. The tannins have softened some, but are still there. The acid is still plentiful, bringing balance. A very nice wine that's getting better. It should be very nice around 2018.

Drinking well.... great black fruit with bright vibrant acids leading to a medium finish. In it's prime, but heading down the slope rather than up.

Nice drinking wine, but one would never guess it to be a Pinot Noir.

11/18/2014 - PSirah Tampa Likes this wine: 92 points

Beautiful bright fruit with soft integrated tannins; good from nose to finish. Still reminiscent of the wine in it's youth but now much more distinguished. This bottle reflects the power of the Stefani fruit and the vintage.

Great Grenache with lite pepper notes. Way too young; wait until 2017 to open.

2010 La Pousse d'Or Volnay 1er Cru Clos des 60 Ouvrées

Pinot Noir more

5/14/2014 - PSirah Tampa Likes this wine: 93 points

Tasted at the winery in Volnay amongst several other 2010 offerings. They keep the wine in 50 degree cellars.

The wine was very open, offering a gorgeous boquet, a mouthful of ripe angular tannins, and superb balance. Although very shy at the moment, this wine is long in the mouth and has all the makings of a superb wine.

The winery knows this bottles potential- they just raised the price to 80 Euros.

2010 Bouchard Père et Fils Nuits St. Georges

Pinot Noir more

5/12/2014 - PSirah Tampa Likes this wine: 91 points

Tasted at the winery (Beaune) and ordered a bottle for dinner. Bright fruit with angular tannins and plenty of acids. Still open for business, but likely to shut down soon for a 3 year nap. Drink now or hold off until 2018. Great wine from a fabulous year.

A great example of how the old time Napa Cab can mature- grace and demure but full of spice and vigor as well. An old girl really shines!

The fruit has transformed but the acids linger. Although a bit frail and thin at this time it's still a lovely representation of PS; likely the most mature I'll ever have the opportunity to drink. As feminine as PS can get- Lovely!

My only bottle- still drinking well. Great fruit, but the acids have diminished, it likely is on the downward side but still several years of life left.
