  • 2007 Fuse Wines Cabernet Sauvignon

    Deep ruby coloring. Aromas of dark fruits, earth, pencil lead, jalapeño pepper, and dried spices. Medium to full body, medium acid, and medium+ finish, with flavors of dark fruits galore (the syrah does shine through as others have mentioned), along with some dried dark fruits and some mineral and spices. Worked well with my steak sandwich for lunch.

  • 2011 Skerk Carso Ograde

    This was killer. Blend of vitovska, malvasia bianca, glera, furmint, sauvignon blanc, and pinot grigio. Beautiful orange color, looking like apricot nectar in the glass. Medium+ body, acid, and finish, with loads of complexity and aromas and flavors of honey, beeswax, white flowers, honeysuckle, roses, peaches, nectarines, red apple, raspberry, fresh herbs, and minerals. The honey and herbs really jumped out in a most interesting and appreciated way. I will age my other one to see what happens, but this was rocking tonight. Showed its best after a short decant, without food (my pairing of pea ravioli wasn't optimal, as I pulled this not remembering exactly what it was), and closer to room temp but still with a slight chill. One of the pro reviews suggesting to pair this with pork chops and apples is prob. a good call.

  • 2003 Ernesto Catena Syrah Siesta en el Tahuantinsuyu

    Holy moly, this bottle was singing tonight! Best one yet, and since it was the last one I had, I guess that's all I can ask for (last drank in 2012 I guess). Anyway, slightly disjointed and a little heat showing on the pop, but came together with only 20 min. of air in glass and non-decanted bottle (there was a little sediment, but I worked around it, partially via minimal pours into the big-ass Bdx glass). Fantastic nose of dark fruits, tar, smoke, earth, violets, mushrooms, and minerals. Medium body and acid, long finish, and flavors of cherry and black fruits, an earthy mushroom note, dried spices, and minerals. Awesome showing tonight with a grilled steak. 92-93
