This is a nice, medium bodied Cab. Nothing readily distinguishable on this night sadly.

Drinking quite well with a feminine nose and excellent mouthfeel. Quite popular among the winos we had over for dinner and held up well with some other more expensive wines.

2006 Charles Smith Syrah Royal City

Columbia Valley more

6/6/2015 - Radboy wrote: 92 points

This is holding up well. This is a good, not a great wine. We tasted it alongside a Reynvaan The Contender and Cayuse En Cerise and the lack of complexity in the Royal City was revealed. The fruit is tightly defined and certainly bold but there isn't much here in terms of secondary characteristics. Still, it is a good wine that seems to be in the middle of its drinking window.

Drank from a double magnum. This is drinking well. It lacks depth in the midpalate but is well balanced.

1996 Château Troplong Mondot

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/30/2015 - Radboy wrote: 90 points

Subtle hints of mushroom initially in the nose give way to berry fruit with a medium to light body. This is not a big boy but rather delicate in structure and far from overbearing. This should drink well over the next year or two and lacks the stuffing to go long term. Then again, 19 years is pretty damn good!

This was drinking better tonight with a 3 hour decant. The typical crazy mishmash of olives, dirt, and dark fruit. Nice.

This is drinking really well right now and I can't imagine it getting any better. Good definition in its tannins with balance and depth. It went down way easy.

1995 Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

5/24/2015 - Radboy wrote: 97 points

We drank this over 3 days and it definitely was better after additional time opened, suggesting much greater life. Apricots, caramel, honey and creme brulee with perfectly nuanced botrytis. It is hard to ask for much more...except an even better year! Spectacular wine to sip and dwell on life's simple pleasures.

Flawless. Honey, sweet, delicate fruit...one feels like a bee sipping the nectar of some ambrosia from Shangri-la. This should add even more complexity with additional aging. Yum.

Black olives, brine, soy, dark berry fruit well integrated with the softest of tannins...another Christophe gem bites the dust.

Sweet tasting fruit with subdued tannins. Quite easy to drink with a pleasant mouth feel, this is delicious. In fact, I think I have just about polished off the whole bottle tonight. Hmmmm....it must be good!

This is great stuff. Layers of flavors plus a silky depth that seems even more refined than Cailloux of past. Just an amazing depth to my palate, perfect for savoring.

This is really quite terrific and exemplifies the excellent quality from this winery. The lush mouthfeel gives way to superbly balanced tannins and graceful fruit. I was glad I was able to pick up a few more bottles of this recently at the winery.
