  • 2007 Domaine Bernard Moreau & Fils Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes

    Restaurant purchase, pnp. A great nose of baking spices. Palate a bit thin and flat, good acidic balance, plenty of tannin structure, but simple, amd too light on fruit.

  • 2009 Cuvée de Peña Vin de Pays des Pyrénees-Orientales

    PnP. Yet another example of a Parker-must-smoke-crack wine review. 90 points? Are you smoking...uh...OK, I already said that Parker must be smoking crack. This stuff is honestly vile. Wicked, wicked pyrazine. STRONG basil bouquet. Strong. Basil. Like SERIOUS basil. Weird, weird note. Don't know if I have gotten it before on a wine. And oregano. Unbelievable green notes. Tomato. It's like I'm in an Italian kitchen, but without the good wine.

    Palate continues a lot of the same. Strong tannins, good acid, but the pyrazine just overwhelms everything else. It's like chewing on a mud, green pepper, basil, mint and oregano sandwich. With a little sweet blue fruit and a lot of alcohol heat on the back end. Blech. Unfortunately, I bought a case in the hype. Luckily, I only paid 2.99 a bottle. The rest are going out as gifts for people who won't notice or care how bad it is.

    (p.s. - if you read this and I gave you a bottle as a gift, this tasting note was intended as satire and as a means to scare off anyone else who might try to buy it up from under me. Seriously. I gave this wine to you because I value our friendship and this wine, just like you, means a lot to me.)

  • 2009 Anthill Farms Pinot Noir Demuth Vineyard

    Cloudy light ruby. Initial nose had a hint I petrol of all things, tar, and creosote. Opens to baking spices ad sweet, cloying cinnamon nose I have come to expect from AHF demuth. Very tart, sweet cherry and bright red fruit. Very tart, but enjoyay so. Good tannin, well integrated. only black mark is a bit of heat. Great overall, and young.
