  • 1996 M. Chapoutier Ermitage Le Pavillon

    Just a hint of burnished gold on the rim of this dark ruby, limpid wine. Red currents, sour cherries, basmati rice, damp leather on the nose, then pepper and hints of hard candies, garrigue. Rather tart yet the fruit is ripe and flavorful. Tannins are mostly resolved and very fine, and the long finish is dominated by flinty minerals. Lovely, mature, just what I look for in a 19-year old Cote Rotie. But don't rush to drink it up: This could last for 50 years...

  • 2008 Raul Pérez Bierzo Ultreia Valtuille

    A very interesting style of wine: clearly true to its Bierzo roots with almost Rioja aromas and flavors, yet more modern in style: not acidic or dry in the old Rioja way! Very deep purple, almost black. Nose shows cherry pastille, leather and spice, really intriguing black fruit aromas that come and go as you swirl the glass. Sweet and yet not overripe, and in fact with substantial acidity that gives the front palate a kind of "bite". Then lush and rather chewy in the midpalate; tannins here are very fine and rounded, like for a California cab. Long finish. I honestly don't know what to compare this to. Very nice now and will be good for a few years but I don't have any idea if it will improve with age. This wants a pretty strongly flavored meat dish: grilled lamb, perhaps, with garlic and spices, or marinated kebabs...

  • 1986 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon

    An experiment... Brownish purple and perhaps a touch murky. Nose dominated by Madiera aromas, orange peel and walnuts. But still sweet and soft, enjoyable to drink. This bottle had a very dry cork and perhaps air got in. 87 if one wanted to score it.
