2006 Cave de Tain l'Hermitage Hermitage Gambert de Loche

Syrah more

7/23/2015 - FarmerKeith LA/VA Likes this wine: 91 points

Very nice, earth , blackberry to the max ( it is Syrah), and tar, black olive, dark plum , light eucalyptus. Leather is there, and I get the meat notes associated with North Rhone, but can't help thinking those are suggestive, Still, Really good wine. I paid more than $50, and am pleased, it's just delicious. Love those Northern Rhones.

2009 Château Saint-Roch (Languedoc) Côtes du Roussillon Villages Chimères

Red Rhone Blend more

7/1/2015 - FarmerKeith LA/VA Likes this wine: NR

Got a case of this 2 years ago. It was interesting, had a skanky element to it , that I've always associated with young Carignan. (could be wrong, just seemed the common denominator/ ergo scapegoat) That has almost disappeared . It really has evolved. There is cherry, but its the dark , really ripe , variety, not fresh and tart. There is also dark ripe plum, and even a touch of cassis. The predominant secondary is raspberry, and yes it too, is black. Earth and healthy dose of Cedar. A super cool , interesting wine , and super value.

2006 Concha y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Don Melchor

Puente Alto more

6/27/2015 - FarmerKeith LA/VA Likes this wine: 91 points

Nice wine . It's so rewarding to see the bonded tannins collect in chunks and strings ,at the bottle bottom. The only difference I can detect in this from a Napa, is an almost sweet, present black fruit. Otherwise, it's just the same, with obvious softer/tannin age. Perhaps this level cab from Chile advances quicker than Napa? I don't think a big Napa at this age, would be as smoothed out.

While it's got power ,this one's about subtlety and finesse. Loads of butter and mineral on nose . Palate is same in front ,followed by pear, baked apple, and popcorn. A light touch was used with the oak.Very nice acidity,air definitely improved it, pure pleasure from start to finish.

Love the spot on call of , iron-tinged cranberry, in the previous note. I think the finish is herbal , but I wouldn't say bitter. The finish is the best part of this wine. It's a real bargain price , too.

Even better now . it's easy and sophisticated , a great combination , and very well made. Just realized its more Mourvèdre than Grenache. Most innarestin. Sad it's the last one.

Pinot Noir more

Very nice. Previous note is spot on. The palate to me is primary cola, followed by cherry, and mild raspberry/cranberry. Tannin is mild, finish is good.

2008 Domain Henri Darnat Puligny-Montrachet

Chardonnay more

5/18/2015 - FarmerKeith LA/VA Does not like this wine: NR

Out of six bottles , 4 were over-oxidized, brass colored, bruised nasty , apple taste. 1 was light gold,1 dark gold, both drinkable , but pretty crap. Certainly not the majestic, lovely , Puligny, we love and expect. Ya get what ya pay for, seems applicable ,here.

2008 Valentina Cubi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Morar

Corvina Blend, Corvina more

5/18/2015 - FarmerKeith LA/VA Does not like this wine: NR

All I get is raisens and alcohol from this. Amarones usually have lovely high acid , which disguises the massive alcohol, and lots of lovely richness,and depth. So the lack of acid, just makes this flabby, and almost sweet. It's almost like a port .

Astoundingly good. One of those rare wines , you open casually because the price tag is so low, and then feel guilty. Totally agree with previous tasting note. It's almost in between a good Macon and a Puligny.

2007 Roc d'Anglade Vin de Pays du Gard

Syrah Blend, Syrah more

4/29/2015 - FarmerKeith LA/VA Likes this wine: 91 points

Wow. most extraordinary for Languedoc-Roussillon . I have had one better before, but that was a tiny production. pic st loup, I got in France. The nose is nice, and fairly typical (lots of tar) , but the palate is amazing. Nice complexity (see notes for flavors, though I get lots of black cherry) , finesse in the balance, softened tannin, and surprise, medium body and alchohol. Nice lingering finish. So glad I waited 2 years to try this . So bizarre, the import label says burgundy wine(wtf?)

Stunningly good, right now . All the Beaune red fruit and earth flavors,great acidity, medium minus body,combining with super silky tannin, making this very smooth and rich. It's got extra depth , as well. A delicious , surprise. I drank the other bottles ,too early.

I purchased this twice , from WTSO. I really enjoyed the first 2 bottles, that's why I bought more. The last 4 bottles I've opened ,have been flawed,probably pre-moxed or madeiriized . Brassy , dark copper ,color, and super oxidated. Anyone else encounter issues? Please drop a comment on this note , thanks.

1999 Camus Pere & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin

Pinot Noir more

3/25/2015 - FarmerKeith LA/VA Likes this wine: NR

Really educational experience. Quite old for a village level burg. Was impressive , on opening, bright acidity, great blending of fruit, earth, mushroom, softened tannin. Both aged, and lively. After 2 hours, it was nice, but totally faded. A ghost of its former self. Never experienced that before.

Rich ripe black fruit, and dusted cocoa/stale cola. Maybe a faint smoke note. The Liandra , at a few dollars more, blows this away. It has spice, and loads of secondary flavor layers. The Piggot Range is amazing. I really like this producer.

3/2/2015 - FarmerKeith LA/VA Likes this wine: 90 points

Drinking beautifully right now . So glad I cellared it. Dark fruit, earth, tobacco , forest floor, full bodied. The tannic edge has mellowed nicely, to blend with the rich, almost sweet, fruit. A slight harsh note, I attribute to carignan, disappeared the 2nd day. Interesting wine, with a great label.

2/11/2015 - FarmerKeith LA/VA Likes this wine: 91 points

This is really fantastic right now. It's lush and extracted, for SB, the color is deep gold , like an old burg. Acid is mellowed , but the grass and herbal, green pepper , are unmistakable SB markers. I was really surprised it was 100%, the softness,made me think it had to have Semillon. I've heard some great Sancerres and pricey white bordeauxs age well. This lower end example , is remarkable, at the moment. (wish I had more)
