Last bottle was not ready. This one was great. Minerals, saline and dried flowers. Very good.

2010 Bouchard Père et Fils Beaune 1er Cru Beaune du Château

Pinot Noir more

Light Beaune burgundy. Being the blend of 17 1ERs it's difficult to pick out a lot of flavors that make it distinctive. Let it open an hour before you drink it. Have a few more and hope that they improve with age.

2012 Domaine Denis Bachelet Bourgogne

Pinot Noir more

Don't agree with the earlier note. The wine was so nice featuring smoke and nice acidity. The acidity was constant over a 3 hour period. I was not sure if it might go away as it breathed out. Fair point on the $50 though. That is a lot for a bourgogne, but I enjoyed it.

2000 R. López de Heredia Rioja Blanco Viña Tondonia

White Blend more

Good subdued nose on this blanc. I am typically used to the red so this was a nice change. It's warm outside so this was a nice change. It is softer than the red in terms of the nose and spice. Enjoyable.

Fun bottle. Perhaps a little too much oak. Could easily go a few more years despite other tasting notes.

2007 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Golden Rectangle Fay

Stags Leap District Red Bordeaux Blend more

Very good wine. The petite verdot really added to the overall flavor. Paired this with a 2007 Fay. Both were very good, but the Golden Rectangle had something more. Enjoyable.

2008 Hall Darwin

Napa Valley Red Blend more

5/24/2015 - MemorialWineFan Does not like this wine: 82 points

Two hour decant. Second bottle of this over a few years. Had hoped this bottle would be better. Chalky without much other qualities. The last bottle was similar. It's a shame that Hall would send this garbage to it's wine club members. Most of their wines are very tasty, but this is horrible. I did not find any redeeming qualities. They should have released this under another label as to not tarnish their reputation. Other countries do that and perhaps they should consider.

Had hoped for more from a $55 bottle of bourgogne. The juice as good, but I felt there was not much depth of terroir that came out. I decanted it for three hours knowing it was young. I enjoyed the wine, but feel I would rather have a village from another producer.

Shocked me how good this was. Consumed it over a few hour period. Meyer lemon with great minerality. Great QPR on this one. Bought only one to try, but wish I had bought more.

Decanted for an hour before drinking. This is very young. If possible cellar a few more years, but if you do drink it, decant several hours. Tannins showing very strong.

Drinking very well. Don't believe the drinking window on this. The tannins would hold up another five years if the bottle was cellared properly.

4/30/2015 - MemorialWineFan Does not like this wine: 85 points

Ok. Good fruit and smooth, but no distinctive taste. The winemaker should have incorporated some terroir into this wine. It is almost too bland without any distinctive taste. Come on' man. Make a stand and put something in it to distinguish it. Too conservative.

Corked bottle. We were all surprised it had oxidized even with proper storage. The challenge in white burgundies and oxidation is evident. 3 of our 8 bottles from the tasting were corked.

The second best bottle of the night next to a Lemoine Corton Grand Cru. Had a subtle approach to the wine that was easy and yet complex at the same time. Very enjoyable.

Not a bad bottle, but not showing as well as I hoped for the QPR. I wanted to try a white Dugat-Py and after doing so will stick to the reds.

Opened around 11 am and decanted for 45 minutes. Put back in bottle and corked it up. Started consuming around 8:00pm at a CDP event. This one showed very well. The wines of the night were two 1995s and an 1989...just hard to compete with a good aged CDP. The 2003 is drinking well now.

2010 Hall Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

4/1/2015 - MemorialWineFan Likes this wine: 92 points

Not sure if the label was wrong and this should have been red label Kathryn Hall. Two of us had this bottle and it was unlike the previous 2010s which we have consumed 20 bottles between us. This one was exceptional. Big nose...big nose very pleasant. Great taste all throughout. It was bold,yes, but I figured there would be a "rough" part of the palate with it being bold, but is was not. Smooth throughout, but bold and good for several more year. Alcohol was there but hidden by the good taste and blended tannins.
