PnP at a large party featuring 8 wines. No detailed notes. Solid the first night; better after a night in the frig after Vac-U-Vin. Solid, earthy.

1982 Château Gruaud Larose

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/28/2015 - tinybubbles Likes this wine: 95 points

A slightly different expression than the bottle earlier in the month. On the nose, damp dark earth, tar, black cherry, blackberry, white pepper, fresh tobacco, and cinnamon on the back with air time. Forest floor, sanded cedar and sandalwood, dry earth and light tar on the backpalate. A rich palate with a savory/sweet balance that progresses on schedule and without abrupt handoffs. Long finish with savory dark spice on the back. 1 hour decant

2009 Château Lilian Ladouys

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/3/2015 - Bob Sacamano Likes this wine: 92 points

90 minute double decent. Lots of sediment. Deep, deep inky magenta color. Firm, drying tannins start to soften and nose opens up after 2.5+ hours. Nose of blueberries and violets earth and stony riverbed. Lively acid and plenty of fruit balances drying tannin on the relatively long finish. No drop-off second day. Drinking awesome now so long as you give it the respect it deserves in the decanter. Nice QPR.

7/3/2015 - duckferret Likes this wine: 93 points

Slightly hot nose of violet, black currant, black pepper. On the palate, dark and slightly jammy, but well-balanced with a little bit of mellow acid. Not overly-oaky. A little spice, but goes down very smoothly. A very nice new world Bordeaux-style blend.

My second bottle from a case. This is little better than the first bottle I tried, largely because it has been sitting in my refrigerator prior to drinking. Lovely drinking wine for the age. Not often I get to drink a nice 21 year old bottle wine.

Lunch au QG
Nez un peu caramel, l'élevage bien présent. La bouche est ronde et la texture belle, l'aromatique encore fermée. Un Las Cases que j'ai chaque fois trouvé un peu trop sur l'élevage, sans doute trop jeune. 91 (+?)

2012 Duckhorn Vineyards Decoy Napa Valley

Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/3/2015 - BVal wrote: NR

Color: medium ruby -> diffuse light/medium ruby rim. Straightforward nose of sour cherries, a little iodine, vanilla and toast. Light palate of plums, cherries, a little weediness and red currants. Okay acidity and medium long finish with a touch of tannin. Acceptable but not burning the house down by any means.

Whoops! So sorry, just noticed this should have been for the Sonoma bottling of the Decoy. Will republish note under that heading.

7/3/2015 - jmottern Likes this wine: 89 points

Medium body wine with medium nose. Nice complex plum fruit with a hint of cherry and vanilla. Medium finish.

I have had better bottles of this vintage and the wine is either past its peak or the bottle was iffy. My advice is to test this wine if you have it.

Huge wine with a ton of fruit and tannin. Nice acid will hold this wine together for many years. Don't open another for 2-3 years to maximise drinking enjoyment.
