  • 2003 Château Capbern-Gasqueton

    required some patience and coaxing to get to a happy drinking stage- 45 mins to an hour of air. On the nose heavy scents of oak, chocolate, vanilla, gentle spices. Red currant and mature berry fruit round out a very aromatic bordeaux. On the palate the aggressive oak is more apparent, chocking the fruit; which is now into its secondary stage of life. Despite the bottle age the remaining fruit remains green. An acidic and bitter finish does add complexity to the sour cherry. Requires food to really shine, but an overall extremely pleasant drinking experience

  • 2002 Casa Lapostolle Merlot Cuvée Alexandre

    I had a difficult time rating this wine. It is more than just a sum of its parts. Cellar time has done wonders to this bottling. Through the first 30 minutes of aeration the wine rollercoasters through- barnyard, chilean green herbaceousness and Brettanomyces; however it settles into dark dusty rich cherries, vanilla, chocolate & overall pleasant nose reminiscent of a right bank bordeaux (a la Pomerol). The theme continues on the palate- violet, plum, dark cherries- all well integrated with wonderful acidity. Cigarbox and earthtones share the palate with mellow fruit. The reason you cellar wine. Probably will last longer, but won't get better

  • 2009 Stratton Lummis Chardonnay Carneros

    Perfume of white flowers, accompanied by green apple and pear aromas cutting the rich buttery notes. Fat tounge, very rich with plenty of buttery essence; wonderful green apple acidity mellowing out the richness at the finish
