2005 Marqués de Murrieta Rioja Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

7/30/2015 - MemorialWineFan Likes this wine: 90 points

Not as good as the last bottle, but still wonderful. With a few more years this could be a 91-93. If you drink it now decant it for a few hours first.

Good second bottle after a nice white burgundy. The element that allured me to this wine was the nose during the IPOB event. I applaud Copain for making a distinct product.

Simply burgundy. Started very fruity. Would give it a few more years to round out. Will improve 1-2 points then.

2008 Paul Hobbs Syrah Kick Ranch

Just boring. Good fruit and dark in line with prior tasting notes. There was just not much there to make a statement. I suggest Paul Hobbs go back to the drawing board and take more risks to create a more unique wine. Frankly, the lack of a distinct taste is disconcerting. Take some chances and make something great.

2012 Anthill Farms Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

7/7/2015 - MemorialWineFan Likes this wine: 89 points

It's in a place now where there is a good balance between acidity and sugary. The finish has some sugar elements to it so if you like that in a pinot, it's a good time for this bottle. I do believe cellaring another 1-5 years will be rewarded. Being a burgundy guy, that is where I am leaning.

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

Pinot Noir more

6/26/2015 - MemorialWineFan wrote: 87 points

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

6/24/2015 - MemorialWineFan Likes this wine: 89 points

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.

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.

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.

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.
