2014 Peju Province Winery Sauvignon Blanc

Napa Valley more

7/6/2015 - MicklethePickle Likes this wine: 88 points

Clean, bright, light. Pure beam of penetrating fruit in the nose; well-delineated aromas include green apple. Avoids the grassy side. Good balance of fruit and acidity in the mouth. On the light side, but with plenty of flavor. Mouth-watering, with a clean finish. Would go well with shellfish. 3-12-15-8: 88/100.

Walters wine tasting - not as floral as I would have hoped on the nose, very heavy mouthfeel with loads of black fruit

Decanted for 2 hours. Lighter in color with some slight bricking. Complex, maturing aromas. A more elegant style. The fruit is reserved perhaps showing the character of the vintage. Would be interesting to try this again in 10 years.

Already a great drinking cab, and many years still in it to further improve. A hint of chocolate on the palate. Fruit is dominant but not overbearing.

Cork soaked close to the top but was able to extract intact. Bricky color but retaining some red color tones. Pleasant mature wine aromas and flavors. Well-balanced with a nice finish. The fruit has clearly diminished but this was enjoyable for what it is: a 29-year-old, old-style Zin (13.0% alc) for which I originally paid $5.99 on sale at Applejack in CO.

Starting to soften, fruit is fading slightly and some of the secondary flavors are moving in. Still a solid blend, but wouldn't wait much longer on these.

I'm holding my other bottles for another 2-3 years as the secondary favors are starting to emerge. This bottle was fantastic and worthy of the high praise.

Finished 4th of 6 in a blind tasting, my #1. Much older than the other chards in the group. Deep yellow color, nicely balanced acidity, fruit, and oak.

This wine has past its due date. Figured it had probably turned before we opened it, and we were right. It had a nose that suggested it was would have been solid if we'd opened it in time, but it got lost in the cellar. Too bad.

Inky, smooth, dusty, with grippy tannins. Very tasty and really peaked at about the 2 hour mark in terms of decanting.

92/93. Two hours in this was integrated and kind of gorgeous. All sorts of Jolly Rancher (cherry, blackberry) notes, and yet somehow elegant, that said. Ate with coffee/chile/brown sugar-rubbed ribs, and it was damn near perfect.

7/5/2015 - MattMauldin Likes this wine: 91 points

Popped and poured. Medium ruby color. Aromas of fig & cherry, with allspice, sandalwood and dried crushed flowers, medium in intensity. Displays nice richness on the palate, along with an airy elegance. Really nice fruit intensity complimented with secondary tea and clove spice, along with slight notes of earth. Juicy acid, fine tannin, depth on the finish. This drinks like an SVD or reserve Pinot Noir- excellent overall, and a killer QPR.

I'm in tears, especially after reading other notes. This was just without fun. May have been corked as I noticed a light film at the top the of the glass. Cork itself was perfect. But just had sort of a musty flavor over two nights that was never the mature 20 year old from a great vintage that I expected. Drinkable, but major downer.

30 minute decant. Casis on the nose. Smooth flavor of leather, cedar, herb and a hint of oak that persists but does not evolve. Just a bit of roughness on a moderately long finish
