Not nearly as good as last time tried, but still a decent wine. Dark cherry in color. Plum and earth on the nose. Palate somewhat rough of cherry, earth and crushed stones. No tannin.

An ok wine. I found it a bit bland. Yellow in color raising concerns, but not showing flaws on the nose or palate. Mostly minerals with a hint of lemon. Perhaps showing its age.

Straw yellow. Nice nose of steel and minerals. Delicious balanced palate of minerals, butter, and citrus. A refined bottle that is drinking well.

My kind of wine with loads of fruit. Purple in color. Cherry, minerals and blackberry on the nose. Shines on the palate. No tannin. Sweet cherry, plum, cassis, blackberry, minerals and a hint of licorice on a refined and balanced palate. What you look for in a CA cab. Very good now, but could get better, even though drinking beautifully

Better and better the longer it has been in my cellar. Very pale straw in color. Not much on the nose. Nice mousse and bead. Crisp, dry and minerally on the palate with a hint of pear. Went well with a variety of foods for Sunday brunch

2006 Luciano Sandrone Barbera d'Alba

5/2/2015 - cos82 wrote: 89 points

Not as good as last tried several years ago. Fruit seems to be fading and is probably time to drink up. Dark cherry. Nose of plum and earth. Mostly a nice acidic minerality on the palate with a touch of blueberry and tart chrry. Still a nice wine and what a Barbera should taste like as contrasted with massive fruit when last tried. Rated lower this time, since I like fruit in my wine.

Fabulous farmer fizz. Aged several years in my cellar. Nice mousse and bead. Shines on the palate. Beautiful balance of bread and minerals with a hint of peaches and flowers. Cross between a Pol Roger and Bollinger. Smooth as silk.

Dark cherry in color. Didn't find much on the nose, but a nice palate of bojo minerality and cherry. A quaffer that went down easy. Wouldn't wait too much longer on these.

Unique CA chard. Very pale in color. No distinct nose. Almost like a Sauvignon blanc on the palate. Steely minerality in a nice way. Smooth and soft. Some peach and apple thrown in. Very nice.

Had this wine many times in the past year with consistent notes. Dark red for a rose. Nice acidity, mousse and bead. Sweetness varies with each bottle, but never too sweet. A terrific QPR at $32 in PA which means it could be several $s less elsewhere. Not great, but very nice for the price.

2007 Château Rayas Côtes du Rhône Château de Fonsalette Cuvée Syrah

more

2/22/2015 - cos82 wrote: 90 points

Drank this too young and too chilled to fairly rate. Dark purple/black in color with plum and earth on a subdued nose. A huge wine that overwhelmed my palate. Lots of earth and minerals with some blackberry. Not tannic, but needs several more years to soften and allow fruit and complexity to show. Could be great some day, but a waste to drink at the moment. If you have to, give it a several hour decant.

2010 Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun) Beaujolais Nouveau Cuvée l'Ancien Vieilles Vignes

Gamay more

1/25/2015 - cos82 Likes this wine: 88 points

Home alone on Sunday and looking to drink something with a home made beef vegetable soup. Hate to drink a better wine from my cellar alone since I won't finish it and never enjoy wine the next day. So I found a bottle left of some Bojo Nouveau that I should have finished sevaral years ago. It was part of my first purchase of Nouveau over the last 15 years. Expected to dump it, but it was decent. Light cherry color with a nice Gamay nose. Decent palate of sour cherry, earth and minerality. I am a Cru Bojo fan with some bottle age as an everyday drinker. I guess this shows that a simple wine from a very good producer can still be very good. Not looking to buy any more Nouveau, but this was nice nonetheless.

5th and last bottle and I enjoyed every one. Not as much fruit as when last tried a year ago, but very good nonetheless. Crunchy delicious palate of cassis and minerality. More of the same on the nose with that Fleurie floral element. What I like in a bojo cru.

Probably sat with this grape a little too long, but still a decent bottle. Light straw yellow in color. Not much nose, but a decent palate of peach, chalk and a light steel element. Initial hint of sweetness which faded after first glass. Nice!

Popped and poured which probably was a mistake. 3rd time from my cellar and least favorite to date. Dark purple in color. Missing the Margaux floral nose. Earth and charcoal on the nose and palate. No fruit. Very hard, but not tannic. Disappointing.

2001 Forman Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

12/31/2014 - cos82 Likes this wine: 93 points

In my cellar since pre 06. Purple plum in color with no sign of maturity. Beautiful floral nose with a dose of cherry. Wonderful palate bursting with sweet red and black fruits. A nice sweetness. A wine that was made for my palate. No tannin. and very different than the 02 drunk side by side. Also a nice wine, but earthy and with some tannin to resolve. Drink the 01s now while waiting for the 02s to mature. An underpriced CA Cab for those who enjoy Napa wines as I do.

In my cellar a long time, so long that it was never entered in CT which means it was pre 2006, The palest pink so that it looked like a maderized white in the glass. Bread and crushed stones on the nose. Still fresh with nice acidity with good mousse and bead. Mature palate of brioche, crushed stones with a hint of strawberry. A lovely mature champagne.
