Excessively sweet, yet a big zin. May need more time in the bottle to calm down a bit.

Masculine nose of dark currents, vanilla, and a sweet sent like lavendar on the tail end of the nose. Palate is strong and balanced, almost heavy in the mouth. Finish is on the bland side. Lovely wine that will be fun to revist in a few years.

2009 Château Haut-Bergey

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/6/2013 - rerail84 wrote: NR

- Purple color. It's balanced with a medium body. Juicy texture - Stood bottle up for 3 day prior to opening. Tasted before decanting. Nose was very expressive giving off notes of graphite, pencil lead, and dark berry. On the palate strawberry, notes of greenness and a bit of chocolate on the finish. After decanting for 30 min more bright berry is coming through on the nose and palate. Finish is still on the short side.

Not as nice as at the winery unfortunitly. Quite simple, with strong notes of oak and vanilla. This would be a great wine at half the price.

- Brick color with medium forming legs and aromas of molasses and rose. It's somewhat balanced with a light/medium body. Oily texture with a medium finish - Drinking well right now. Beautiful floral nose with hints of brown sugar, molasses, and Forrest floor. Lively acid.

Strong Bordeaux nose of forest floor, saddle leather, and cassis. Huge wine with notes of lavender and a touch of eucalyptus. Needs to sit for a few more years to settle down. Good but not great.

No formal notes. A bit shut down. Needed about 30-45 min in the decanter to start showing its stuff. Good wine for the price.

2002 Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

3/16/2013 - rerail84 wrote: NR

PnP from 1.5 L. The cork was is perfect shape for a 12 year old bottle. Beautiful color with heavy bricking around the edges. The nose offers notes of carmel, stewed fruit, graphite, and pencil lead. On the palate the tannins are nearly non exsistant at this point although the acid is still quite lively. Med bodied at best with a satisfying finish. My have missed the best of this wine by a couple of years. would not sit on any 750's much longer.

Black cherry, mocha, vanilla, tabacco, and a touch of mint are developing nicely on the nose. The palate is still pretty tight and the tannins a bit grippy. Everything seems to be in balance. The finish has gained some weight since the last time I tried it. Probably going to sit on the remaining bottles for a few years.

2009 Double Diamond (Schrader) Cabernet Sauvignon Bomber X

Napa Valley more

3/8/2013 - rerail84 wrote: NR

PnP. Very tight right now. Very little fruit coming through on the nose. Blackberry and soil mostly. The palate is no exception, tight and tanic. Starts to open up after 30 min in the glass. Firm tannins and a nice acidic backbone. Finish is muted and on the short side at the moment. Kind of have to agree with some of the other notes on this wine being in a wierd place right now. Give it another year.

Had at Il Fornio with a generous helping of lagnassia and wow was this wine awesome. So supple and smooth, yet masculine and refined. At $65 it is on the pricer side but it is so good you quickly forget the price. Bright color, stunning nose and a finish that will leave you longing for more. Fantastic wine which will last another 5 years without issue.

A bit of Brett on the nose but it blew off after 30 min or so. Not as bright and fresh as last time but still a solid Pinot.

Drank at Christmas. Beautiful Spring Mountain nose that leapt from the glass. A little tight at first, but after an hour in the glass it opened up quite nicely. Great body and long finish.
