2006 Ravenswood Pickberry

Sonoma Mountain Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/24/2015 - Neecies wrote: NR

Muddled flavors. No youth left and yet no interesting development from nine years in bottle, and fairly opposite what I expected based on last August's bottle. This one was definitely headed downhill.

2014 Podere Ruggeri Corsini Langhe Rosato

Langhe DOC Rosé Blend more

7/24/2015 - Neecies Likes this wine: NR

An exceptional rose of 100% nebbiolo. Bay leaf and peach on the nose with peach, grapefruit and spice on the palate. Totally dry, distinctive. A steal at $15.

2005 Black Hills Estate Nota Bene

Okanagan Valley VQA Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/4/2015 - Neecies Likes this wine: 87 points

Wallop of dilly American oak on first approach to the glass is a downside surprise. Rich, ripe cassis notes rule the fruit, ripe sweetness bogs down the finish. Needs more time to slim down, for my tastes. The '04, drunk the day before, was much better.

A good bottle proving that the dried up bottle one year ago was a fluke. Tangy, savory, with emphasis on the cab franc component. Good finish--a pleasure.

2008 Lost River Winery Côte-Wall

Walla Walla Valley Syrah Blend, Syrah more

7/4/2015 - Neecies Likes this wine: 86 points

Still good, but losing it's core of fruit--time to drink up, this isn't an ager. Flavors are soft raspberry, cinnamon and malted milk balls.

2011 Tranche Cellars Slice of Pape

Columbia Valley White Rhone Blend more

6/28/2015 - Neecies Likes this wine: 94 points

OFS. Brilliant, heady aromas of stone fruits with pretty floral qualities from the roussanne and no tangible sign of the dead-old-lady characteristics of new world viognier. Great concentration and complex minerality. Good winemaking in a cold vintage and four years of bottle age make this a standout among Washington whites.

1999 Maison Leroy Bourgogne

Sadly, nothing like Drew's good bottle a few weeks ago. Saturated cork with top mold; browning, tired pinot within. Crap!

2014 Domaine des Lauribert Vaucluse La Cuvee de Lisa

Grenache more

6/27/2015 - Neecies Likes this wine: 85 points

Followed a very dry California mourvedre rose. One of the palest roses I've seen this season. Fruity-sweet, floral and creamy, with ranier cherry and fresh bay leaf spice and the acidity needed to carry that burden. Not one to ponder; drink very-chilled.

2013 Prieuré de Montézargues Tavel

Red Rhone Blend more

6/27/2015 - Neecies Likes this wine: 84 points

Pleasant and tasty, but on lacks the weight and classicism of Tavel's savory herb and sherry-like qualities and so, just good vs. very good, and for $22 it disappoints. At $12 from anywhere else, it would rate a couple points higher.

2002 O'Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain

more

6/26/2015 - Neecies Likes this wine: NR

Lambert's bottle; purchased 2nd hand at Wades Wines in So Cal. Too evolved and mature for an 02. No primary fruit, all end-phase secondary--brownish black color, tons of sediment. Must have been passively stored in its prior life. A shame--they charged him close to $200 each for these.

Lambert's. He picks this up for $38, and it's a heckuva buy at that price. Brooding bing cherry, blackberry fruit and espresso notes, silky tannins.

1999 Château Léoville Barton

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/25/2015 - Neecies wrote: NR

Never had a more frustrating Bdx than this. In the 13 years I've owned this case, only one bottle (two years ago) showed well and all the rest have been muddy like last night's. Not quite stewed, and not quite pruney, more like what the denser goods at the bottom of a barrel could taste like--though the wine had very little sediment. Can't chalk it up to 'cooked' because there was one good bottle. What the heck?

For $10 there probably isn't a better rose out there. Suble Provencal rose typicity with good balance and finish.

2014 Belle Glos Pinot Noir Œil de Perdrix

Sonoma County more

6/20/2015 - Neecies Likes this wine: NR

Had the Belle Glos pinot trademark lactic qualities, but where I don't care for that bit in the red wine, in this rose it came across as strawberry milkshake with an extraordinary cashmere texture on the palate. Not my style, but was very, very popular at the nabe tasting.

Big fruit and exuberantly joyful from mostly sangiovese and syrah fruit from the warmer climes of Southern Oregon. A real crowd pleaser.

In disagreement with the previous poster, found this wine overly acidic and almost hard to drink alone. I have two more bottles--will hold them for next year.

Well above average in a room with 18 other roses, and deserving of it's above average price. Richer fruit without the residual sugar.

Big on the palate, with ripeness creating a sweet impression of strawberry and canteloupe. Very new world and monodimensional. Not my style, but strongly appealed to the neophytes.

2014 Des Amis Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

6/20/2015 - Neecies Likes this wine: NR

VERY little information around about this wine. A previous rose made by them was apparently pinot, but this has the color and tannins of a cabernet based wine so I created a new listing for what I think it is. Probably a blend. But--drinks like a claret. Masculine in style with hefty color and firm tannins. Quite likeable, but serious. Would be an interesting one to age.
