Good Pinot but nothing memorable here. Not bad, just not worth telling about.

Stunning and smooth as silk. Oak, charcoal and currant come together beautifully in this wine. Previous tastes were not as delicious but this bottle was just exceptional and lingered in the mouth for moments. Wow.

Quite tasty and earthy. Thinner than anticipated but well balanced and drinking well right now. Anxious to see what a few more years does for this one.

A tinge thin in appearance but a great nose on this one - cranberry, sour cherry and lead primarily. On the tongue was more of the same and a brightness that came through to the end. Very good stuff.

Very good daily drinker. Absolutely fantastic value and a steal for under $4 a bottle! Initially a little too fruity and sweet, but after some time in the glass this mellowed out. Smooth, bright red fruit but in check with some mocha and a pleasant finish.

This bottle in particular was pretty bold up front. Lots of spice, mocha and black cherry on top of a lovely boquet. My only complaint would be a little too oaky, but not lousy by any means. I like them bold, but the finish fell a little short. Still very solid.

The only wine club bottle of wine I've ever enjoyed. Much better than the previous bottles by a long shot. Forward fruit of cranberry and raspberry. Mocha, smoke and pepper jump on board and a medium smooth finish completes this. I really enjoy this stuff, especially for the $6.99 price tag. Very good indeed.

Very sweet with brown sugar, pear and apricot. If you have a sweet tooth this is your wine. The low alcohol content easily makes this a solo drinker. Very refreshing and not over complex. Very tasty.

Even better than the previous bottle. Strong nose of bold dark red fruit. Wonderful integration of raspberry, soy sauce, tobacco, wet earth and spice. A lot of tannin on the tongue and pretty tight but finishes beautifully. A fantastic wine!

My first attempt at Sake. And while I had no idea what to expect, I found that I don't have a palate for the stuff. There were some tropical flavors, albeit very very soft and almost flavorless.

Forgot I had this after a tasting a year ago. Purchased on a whim, but was pretty impressed from the initial nose and forward fruit as I recall. Popped and poured and found lots of forward fruit still, mainly raspberry and some strawberry, which totally throws me for a Pinot Noir. I'd say this is a "good" wine and I wouldn't have any problem serving this to guests.

1970 Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/30/2010 - jamscreator wrote: 92 points

Decanted properly by candle into a Riedel duck decanter. The cork was saturated with no capsule compromise and it came out mostly in two large pieces. Wonderful nose right after the pop of rich red fruits, cedar and damp earth. The color had become a medium red with some fading on the edge, but much more pleasant than I actually expected. The sediment was minimal for a 40 year old bottle and with swirling and time this wine is gaining in complexity. Lots of mineral and dark fruit on the palate with a touch of menthol and leather mixed in. A tinge thin, but overall a wonderful wine to celebrate a mutual 40th birthday with. Short finish but very smooth. Unless you know without a doubt that a bottle has been stored properly for the past several decades, I would advise to drink this one soon.

Took awhile to open up. This last 375 bottle is very tasty, but possibly going through a little funky period right now. The nose is closed down, but the flavors are well layered and the finish is tight. Cherry pipe tobacco, fig and just the slightest hint of mocha. Much different than previous bottles but still overall very very good.

Continues to be an outstanding and shining example of a fine wine from Yalumba. Dark purple and a wonderfully layered combination of burnt oak, leather, blackberry and wet stone. Lingers in the mouth quite long and just tastes so darn good.

Color of pickled beets in the glass. Very fragrant nose of raspberry, candied apple and slate. The palate was a middle-of-the-road uneventful dark fruity wine with a bitter but long finish. Good, but not particularly memorable.

Initially a strong nose of Sauvignon Blanc which threw me. Gorgeous golden color - I mean very very golden. Pineapple, mango and some tropical notes with a sugary thick syrup. Finish was long and delicious. Drank from a 375ml bottle. Will be anxious to try this one again in a few years.

Tight as heck, but great plum and fig on the nose at pop and pour. After a 90 minute decant, the fruit flavors came through with a bit of leather. Very tanic, as expected, but will be just fantastic in another couple of years.

Great plum flavor and dark fruit nose with some damp earth and tons of mocha and chocolate layered in. Some might find the mocha overwhelming but I thought it was a nice change of pace and not a pepper bomb as some from can be. This Shiraz has a wonderful finish and is drinking beautifully.

This is really an amazing bottle of wine. Deep deep dark purple in the glass and a mouth-watering nose of black ripe fruit. Beautiful blend of Shiraz and Cab with multiple layers of fruit - blackberry, blueberry, cherry. Add in the smoothness of the leather and touch of pencil lead and you have this darling. The finish was well rounded and left you wanting more, albeit a bit shorter than I thought it would be. Wish I had more!
