2014 Baker Lane Syrah Rosé

Sonoma Coast more

5/20/2015 - isaacjamesbaker wrote: 90 points

Pale salmon/tangerine color. Lighter approach on the nose, sliced red apples and white cherries, a breezier aromatic profile with white flowers, dandelions and hints of sea salt. Bright and crisp approach on the palate, this wine is light and elegant but not short on flavor. I get McIntosh apple, wild raspberries, tangerine and watermelon fruit, but what I like best is the complex mix of crushed chalk, white pepper, sea shells and minerals. Long, bracing finish that keeps the mouth watering. Crazy value, this is a 12% alcohol Syrah from Baker Lane’s Ramondo Vineyard.

We had a glass with the Filet Mignons; it was superb. And the second glass was terrific all by itself. Those Amador folks are dependable and the Deavers' have never let me down.

2006 E. Guigal Hermitage

Syrah more

5/23/2015 - aChave wrote: 92 points

Deep ruby. Decanted 45-60 minutes, but first sample out of bottle attractive as well. Mix of dark fruit and classic Hermitage meatiness. Depth of flavor with sound tannins at the back; light funk only adds to interest. Smoothed a bit after the decant. A solid wine, not heavy but has a nice clear character on the finish; early in drinking window. Good value for an Hermitage in this vintage.

Excellent! Opened spontaneously not providing time for a decant. Precise flavors of smokey black fruit, Kalamata olive brine, grilled steak, anise, and white pepper. Robust nose and long finish. Will continue to improve with time but in a great place now.

1998 Finca Flichman Syrah

5/24/2015 - Claw Dee Puss Does not like this wine: 50 points

Started at the colour of weak tea, after a couple of hours it had attained the colour of terrible coffee. Perhaps, at the dawn on the new millenium this was a decent drop of Syrah, but now it's barely paying lip service to the idea of "wine" - basically undrinkable.

tried a second bottle and much to my amazement it was far superior to the previous bottle. the wine definitely needs some air prior to drinking and while the cork showed some signs of leakage the wine was fine. I do not think this wine has that much longer life left in it

Yes, old school describes this wine well. Seems to have more ageability ahead but our last bottle.

The fruit was great and in the mouth this was delicious. This bottle seemed to have a high acid level and was almost tangy on the finish which was different from our first expereince with the wine. Not sure what changed.

5/18/2015 - sesalmon Likes this wine: 92 points

Smooth, bright and palate-coating, with a mix of sweet dark jammy fruit, spice with hints of tobacco. This wine is rich and layered, with a long lingering finish with velvety tannins and floral notes. This wine is still going strong--glad I have one bottle left!

End of year sparkling wine tasting: Earth, redcurrant, some blackberry and pepper. Palate is medium bodied and while it has some of the spice of the nose it doesn't really stand out in any way. Competent but not very memorable.

End of year sparkling wine tasting: Carbonic influence, strawberry and a herbal undertone. Rather enjoyable palate, plenty of spice to compliment the sweet red fruit. Fresh and vibrant for now.

Tasted like a generic CDR. Spice, light red fruit, astringency. Not typical of the core of pure blue/black fruit/brine flavors I look for in a Cornas.

Inky purple color with dark ripe fruit with a nice finish but not terribly complex. Lots of sediment in the last glass. I probably should have consumed this bottle at least a year ago.

Oh man, this was in a killer spot. Nose explodes with classic N. Rhone black olive, smoked meat, bacon, black fruit and pepper. Palate has medium weight, plush black fruit and gripping acidity. Seamless. Savory, long finish. Amazing stuff and amazing value.

Difficult to rate because it might have been ever so slightly corked. Great material though. Everyone enjoyed it, but I detected a bit of dusty closet on the mouth and nose.

Retested from previous bottle. This had been tapped by Coravin on several occasions over the last two months. The funk had taken over big time on both the nose and palate. Clearly not on par with my previous tasting note. Not rated this time.
