6/30/2015 - The Drunken Cyclist Likes this wine: 91 points

Not the greatest pairing for General Tsao's chicken, but I thought it held up well enough. It was after dinner that this bottle started to shine--clearly some age on this NV Brut, which usually highlights the baked bread aspects of a champagne. Solid all the way through with a well above average finish. Outstanding. thedrunkencyclist.com

2012 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection

Napa Valley more

6/30/2015 - bluegoose wrote: 95 points

Decided to open another bottle for the World Cup. Popped it in the morning and let it slow ox in the cellar for 9 hours, decanted for another two hours, and drank over around three. Similar notes as before - nice fairly deep/rich fruit, really smooth mid-palate, and nice deep/long lasting finish. However, drank next to a 2012 Tor Kenward Beckstoffer To-Kalon cab and I preferred the Tor. The Tor was not as rich and showed a little more complexity. In addition, I preferred the flavor profile of the Tor. Both were very good though. Once again, I expect the Caymus to get better over the next couple years as it softens-up some.

A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark black purple in color. A smooth full bodied red blend, with blackberries, blueberries, smoke and spice on finish, a very good and interesting wine, short decant. www.winelx.com

Just insipid and a bit boring. Not sure if this is a closed phase or my palate, but just significantly underwhelmed, even for a young Alzinger. Or could this be getting old already? Curious.

The wine has low acidity. It smells like black currant (cassis). The wine finishes short. The wine looks garnet colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. The wine has smooth texture.

A solid CdR. PnP. Smooth, big, fruit forward with a touch of spice. Certainly not a perfect wine but definitely delivers for a good vintage CdP costing around $25.

I could not resist...same impression as 6/3/15. Someone needs to remove this wine from my cellar and give it back to me a few years later. Drink now-2025.

2008 Hartford / Hartford Court Pinot Noir Sevens Bench Vineyard

Carneros more

6/30/2015 - MystMrQ Likes this wine: 91 points

Really nice, pure Cali pinot. Less spice than I typically associate with Carneros but rich, cherry and cola flavors with a rich mouthfeel. Medium long finish. Drinking wonderfully now but likely to hold through 2018.

2011 Soléna Pinot Noir Hyland Vineyard

McMinnville more

6/30/2015 - The Drunken Cyclist Likes this wine: 87 points

This is not a mind-blower by any means, but a solid Pinot, nonetheless. I got these from Last Bottle for $22, but had I paid full-freight (~$40), I would be a little less forgiving. Some good fruit (cherry) and a bit of earth, but noticeably lacking in the complexity department. For $22? Good, even Very Good. thedrunekncyclist.com

Drinking beautifully at the end of its life. Open 1.5 hrs and still together although loose structure. Incredibly soft and silky tannins, beautiful fruit, no oxidation and honey aromas. Paired nicely with pineapple pork belly!

2008 Grand Rêve Vintners / Force Majeure Collaboration Series II Ciel du Cheval Vineyard

Red Mountain Red Rhone Blend more

6/30/2015 - drrobvino wrote: 93 points

I haven't been blown away by the wines from Grand Reve...they have been largely overblown and way too ripe for my palate.
That being said, I've adored the wines from Ross Andrew Winery, and was pleased to see that Ross Mickel, the Ross Andrew owner/winemaker, made this wine.
Opened and consumed over 2 hours.
This is a fabulous effort, in every way. Beautiful deep black/purple in color, fading to a tawny rim.
The nose and palate show off red and black cherry, pomegranate, pepper, moist earth, and spice. The tannins are smooth and sultry, with medium acidity and a long, satisfying finish that echoes the fruit and spice.
This wine is complex and very well balanced, showing nice maturity. It has reached a nice level of maturity now, and should continue to drink well through 2023 or so...but it is absolutely brilliant now, so I will consume my remaining 2 bottles by 2019 or so. Delicious.
I am enamored with the wines of Ross Mickel.

Definitely showing its age..in a good way. That pruny agey deliciousness but not over the line into dead. This still is showing lots of character and was just wonderful with pizza dinner. If I had more...unfortunately I don't...I'd drink them soon.
