2005 Hospices de Beaune Corton-Vergennes Cuvee Paul Chanson Lucien Le Moine

Corton Grand Cru Chardonnay more

5/29/2015 - Uglypinga Likes this wine: NR

This is a bottle made for Geddy Lee. Amazing, intense nose of flowers (gardenias come to mind) something best described as butter fat, and limes. The palate is also intense with some remaining oak, lime pit and some passion fruit. Very long and very vervy. Great length. Love it.

2009 Marcassin Chardonnay Three Sisters Vineyard

Sonoma Coast more

5/29/2015 - Uglypinga Likes this wine: NR

Amazingly complicated wine with caramel notes, yellow fruits, and even some chickory. Sweetish at first but then goes all over the place. Changes every half hour or so. Very interesting.

Great wine. Loads of yellow fruits, honey and flowers but with a great citrusy component that cleanses the palate. This is so good. Viscous and long but so clean.

2009 Maybach Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Materium

Oakville more

5/29/2015 - Uglypinga Likes this wine: NR

It's maybach, but there is a little heat. I don't know if it was temperature or an off bottle but I've had the 09 before and while the fruit is all there, this was not representative.

Oaky nose with olives, cheese rind and some florals. The palate is full of tannins and more Brie. Some crunchy fruit behind it. Way too young.

Oakville more

A little oak but loads of blackberries and currants. Some cinnamon and violets. The palate is thick and a little chewy with some greenish stem notes and loads of tannins. Young but nice.

Dark, brooding and painfully young. Full of blackberries and raspberries with some vanillin. Mouth coating, full bodied and long. Very appealing but oh so young.

2004 Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal Brut

Champagne Blend more

5/27/2015 - Uglypinga Likes this wine: NR

This was a slightly advanced bottle missing a bit of verve but delicious none the less. Loads of yellow fruit just missing on the acidity and citrus.

2010 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

Stags Leap District more

5/20/2015 - Uglypinga Likes this wine: NR

Fireworks. This is a delicious, in your face (at this point) seamless Cabernet. Full of berries both dark and crunchy. Lots of stuff going on in the glass but there is some very young oak in the form of vanilla that needs to settle down. Wow wine even at this stage.

May have been an off bottle. There was a flavor there that was hard to identify but I wasn't happy with the showing. I'll have to revisit soon.

Howell Mountain more

5/20/2015 - Uglypinga Likes this wine: NR

Yum. All sin, all the time. The black pepper and raspberries are there but there is a floral component to this wine that is hard to compare to any other zin. The palate is powerful but it doesn't feel dense. Great zin at this age.

2009 Alban Vineyards Syrah Reva Alban Estate Vineyard

Edna Valley more

5/20/2015 - Uglypinga Likes this wine: NR

I was in the mood for a big wine. Wowza I love these. Firing on all cylinders. Big, red and purple fruit with a hint of vanilla and lots of beef. Big but smooth on the palate with no heat that I could find. My friend, who drinks wine regularly but rarely over 20 dollars said "damn, I forget how great wine can be sometimes."

2008 Fairchild Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Sigaro

St. Helena more

5/20/2015 - Uglypinga Likes this wine: NR

Complex nose with some plums, raspberries, a bit of oak, and some horse hide. The palate is soft and seamless with a beefy, plummy note coming back over and over. Peters out into a pleasant, mild finish. Very good wine, but I didn't have time to give it air, which hurt it, in my opinion.

Somewhat muted nose with a little smoke and raspberries. The palate is medium to full with ripe raspberries and black cherries. A bit of smoke. Some tannins that need to settle down. Good though.

Chocolate, blackberries and oak on the nose. The palate is full, chewy and large scaled. Brought it to the local steakhouse thinking strip and its perfect for that. Lots of smoke.

There is an odd note of burnt rubber on this that wont go away. Both in the nose and palate which is a shame because the material underneath seems excellent. Judgment reserved.

Dark fruits, baking spices, earth and some tree bark are the dominant flavors in this wine which still comes across as youngish yet drinkable with some vigorous swirling.

Inky looking with pencil lead and dark berries on the nose. Leather and blue fruits on the palate supported by more lead and some Forrest notes. Loads of tannins and grit still. Drank this over three days and it would've softened for five.

Fresh nose with some bright berries and some stemmy notes. The palate has bright cherry with some more pit notes but its a little.clipped and air doesnt seem to help. Maybe needs time?

Herbal, bitter chocolate nose. A little dust. The palate is dusty with hints of olives, leather and hint of beef. Still a bit tight but a very good wine.
